As I was looking for a way to pass the quarantine doldrums, I saw Entertainment Weekly’s list of what it considered to be the 75 most ‘essential’ episodes of Supernatural, leading up to Season 15. Since any excuse for a rewatch is a good excuse, I figured I’d not only invite my Supernatural "Team Free Will North Carolina" (TFWNC) Facebook group to join me, but I’d also recap my thoughts on which episodes Entertainment Weekly (EW) chose, which ones they skipped, and what was left out. Music plays such a big role in Supernatural, so I also noted which iconic songs were included and which were missed in the skipped episodes. Reporting on all that turned into quite the project, and The WFB was kind enough to let me share it here! (My snarky opinions are my own and don’t reflect those of The WFB.)
“Sam is so serious,” agrees staff writer Daniel Loflin, who co-wrote the third Supernatural comic series, Beginning’s End, with his screenwriting partner, Andrew Dabb. “That’s one of the things we tried to tackle with the comic books: ‘Why is Sam so serious?’ It’s basically because before Mary died, Dean got to experience life with her and with John as a normal dad, whereas Sam grew up with this hardened, militaristic, revenge-driven man, so Sam reflects the serious side of John Winchester and Dean the more carefree side.” - From the Supernatural season 5 companion book, pg 155.
My third Supernatural character tribute is to the Alpha Vampire - the very first vampire and father of them all. He is probably tens of thousands of years old. Finely dressed and an eloquently talking man, he is also a ruthless beast who spreads fear by his presence alone. He is one of my favorite villains of the show. I wish he would have been in more episodes.
