Page 1 of 5The Winchester family really gets put through the ringer on this show, don't they? I can't think of another program on television that kills off it's series leads so regularly and so gruesomely. Of course, this is part of what makes Supernatural so amazing: they are willing to really go there. Because Dean died so many times in "Mystery Spot," he has a lot of entries on this list. That's a dubious honor if there ever was one. Sam just hasn't died as often, thankfully. This a list you really don't want to make! In honor of the ultimate sacrifice all the Winchesters have made, on numerous occasions, I present to you the Top 10 Winchester Deaths.
Honorable Mention - All of Dean's Deaths in "Mystery Spot" that aren't in the rest of this list - "Mystery Spot"
All of these Dean deaths are all played for humor, and man, does it work. If you had told me in season 1 or 2 that there would be an episode revolving around Dean dying in lots of zany ways and it wouldn't turn me into a blubbering mess, I would not have believed you. Of course, Sam may have a vastly differing opinion of the experience, but it certainly was entertaining to watch Dean get killed over and over again in such random and mundane ways. Those deaths include: being mauled by a golden retriever who definitely did not need a friend, slipping in the shower, getting run down by a car, getting electrocuted by his razor, choking on a bite of sausage, getting food poisoning from some bad tacos, getting crushed by a desk, and the death I most wish we could have seen, being shot with one or more arrows by Doris, a waitress with poor aim.
#10 - Dean vs. the axe - "Mystery Spot"
Axe 1, Dean 0. My absolute favorite part of this scene is the little wheezing laugh Dean gives the mystery spot owner before he goes over and tries to stop Sam from tearing down the place. It's an "I have no idea what's going on, but I'm sure I can stop it because I'm Dean, and I'm awesome" moment. And then he goes over and splat! That blood spray is brutal, and then you hear Dean's body thud to the ground over Sam's words of disbelief. And Sam killed him! Sure, it was an accident, but Sam killed Dean! With an axe!
