Page 1 of 5If you have a weak stomach, be warned. Some of these screencaps are pretty gross. If you think you can handle it, read on!
I was inspired to write up this list by Ben Edlund's insane opening to "My Bloody Valentine." Gruesome! We all know that Supernatural can be a really gory show. And normally, I can handle what they throw at me. I have a pretty strong stomach, thankfully, because you need one to watch this show! But sometimes things happen that make me turn away from the TV because I just can't watch. We all have our own personal fears and things we just can't stand to see, so what really creeps me out and makes me turn away may seem really tame to others. I'm going to go through my Top 10 Cringeworthy Moments and tell you why they make me squirm. And I'm curious to hear if you readers cringe at the same moments or have other ones that you can't stand, so fess up in the comments!
Honorable mention - Dean crawls through a dirt tunnel - "Jump the Shark"
Okay, I'm sure a lot of you have no problem with this scene whatsoever, but it just freaks me the hell out. First of all, I have a bit of a visual claustrophobia thing going on, by which I mean I don't freak out when I'm personally in an enclosed space, but I don't like seeing other people in enclosed spaces. Second, my all-time biggest fear is getting crushed to death, irrational as that may sound, and when you're crawling through a tunnel, that means there's something above your head that can collapse and kill you. Here, Dean has to crawl through a dirt tunnel. Just look at that thing! It's horrifying. Dirt tunnels collapse all the time! Dean, are you trying to give me a panic attack here? The only reason it's not higher on my list is they don't actually show him crawling through the tunnel. They only show him emerging from it, thankfully. If they had, this might have been the worst scene in the entire show for me.
#10 - Dean gets shocked by the crash card paddles - "In My Time of Dying"
Dean gets hurt a lot on this show. (Understatement!) This, however, is the hurt Dean scene I have the hardest time watching. There's just something awful about seeing someone get shocked with those paddles. When doctors have to use them on you, you're obviously in really bad shape. It's pretty much a last-ditch effort. The sound the charge makes when the doctor trigger the paddles is terrible. And your body is not supposed to buck up like that! I just don't like it.
