It's that time of year again!  As part of our annual season end celebration, we kick it all off with our look back at the 23 episode season we were just given and put ourselves through a grueling and painful exercise because it's supposed to be fun.  Yes, time to rank the episodes in five minutes!

This one was very tough for me this year.  As you all may know, I had a lot of problems with season nine and honestly, I didn't even remember what happened during most of the episodes.  That was a first for me.  So, I went to our Season Nine Episode Guide, read through all the episode titles and synopsis' and then did my rankings.  Even after that, I went about ten or twenty seconds over the five minutes.  My first and last were super easy, it got tougher from there. 

The rules are simple, here's the list of the 23 season nine episodes in order.  You need to rank them in your opinion from best to worst in five minutes.  Keep the season nine guide up as a reference while you do this.  The object is to get your initial reactions, so no edits or changing your mind is permitted once the list is done.  After you're done, if you want to share your reasons for why you ranked the episodes the way you did, feel free!  That is not part of the five minute exercise so take your time with that.  If it turns out your list takes longer than five minutes, share it anyway, it's not like any of us will really know!  Just don't change your mind once a list is done.  Otherwise the list knows and you'll hurt it's feelings.   

Here are the season nine episodes:

I Think I’m Gonna Like It Here
Devil May Care
I’m No Angel
Slumber Party
Dog Dean Afternoon
Heaven Can’t Wait
Bad Boys
Rock and a Hard Place
Holy Terror

Sharp Teeth
The Purge
Captives
#THINMAN
Blade Runners
Mother’s Little Helper
Meta Fiction
Alex Annie Alexis Ann
Bloodlines
King of the Damned
Stairway To Heaven
Do You Believe In Miracles?


Here is my ranking.  Yes, as the author of the article I always get to go first!

Do You Believe In Miracles?
Captives
I Think I’m Gonna Like It Here
King of the Damned

Okay, your turn.  We always end up with a wide variety of choices each year, so I'm curious to see if there's another big difference this year.

Wow, one thing is for sure. The worst episode is unanimous! I guess we file "Bloodlines" under the "WTF were they thinking???" pile.
NOLANOLA
# NOLANOLA 2014-05-28 08:44
That's because BLOODLINES was a CRIME AGAINST NATURE. The SPN nature. I don't know if someone TOOK ACID or FORGOT TO TAKE THEIR ACID. Having the SUPERNATURAL NAME included was an insult to JENSEN and SERA and all who gave us this family that we love.
I AM SAYING...

Hee. That is EXACTLY what I said after watching Bloodlines, Alice.

This was not as easy as I thought and I have to be honest it took me about 7 minutes.

in very quick review, I love these episodes even when they have bad writing mistakes in them :

Do You Believe In Miracles?
First Born
King of the Damned
I Think I’m Gonna Like It Here
Dog Dean Afternoon
Blade Runners
Bad Boys
Road Trip
Holy Terror
Stairway To Heaven
Meta Fiction
Mother’s Little Helper
Captives
Devil May Care

the others are as same level as each other (no big difference in rating them) :

Heaven Can’t Wait
Sharp Teeth
Alex Annie Alexis Ann
Rock and a Hard Place
The Purge (just because I almost hated the last minutes of sam and dean's talk , it was almost true but very very hurtful to watch !!!!)
I’m No Angel
Slumber Party (I like Charley , but the other episodes_having her_were a lot better)
THINMAN

It's not a supernatural episode, according to me!!!! quote me to me :
Bloodlines
