Welcome one and all to a new WFB game!
For those of you who haven’t seen “Um... Actually” on youtube, this is a fun game format where I, your host, will make a statement deliberately wrong, and you know-it-all Supernatural fans get to rush in and correct my error! Now to let you know the rules, I promise that I will only make statements which are verifiable facts within the show. There won’t be anything here relating to debatable points of canon or relationships or feelings unless such was made explicitly clear within the show.
Also, as a courtesy to other players, I humbly ask participants employ the spoiler tags around your answers in the comments below.
For an example, I might make a statement like:
0. Dean’s favorite food is cake.
Now you, knowing exactly how wrong I am, will write in the comments:
<spoiler> 0. Um actually, Dean really loves his PIE. </spoiler>
Or however you want to express it! The only real rule here is to have fun!
For our first round, I'm going to start you off easy. Each of these statements has only ONE wrong thing about them. Catch it, for 1 point each, for a total of 5 possible points.
- Supernatural was created by Earl Kripke and debuted in 2005 on The WB network.
- Supernatural stars Tom Welling and Jared Padalecki as Dean and Sam Winchester respectively.
- In the pilot, Sam was living with his wife Jessica when Dean came back into his life.
- Kripke ran the show until season seven when Sera Gamble took over as showrunner.
- Season 5 saw the debut of the boys’ on-again/off-again demonic ally, Crowley, played by Mike Sheppherd.

Now that you’ve been warmed up, I'm going make things a little harder. For this next round, these statements will have TWO things wrong in them and it could be literally anything. Each one you catch will be worth 1 point each for a total of 10 pts.
- In season ten after Sam has a near death experience, Dean gets an angel, whose real name is Gadreel, (played by Tahmoh Peniket) to possess his brother and save his life.
- The fourth episode of season eleven was memorable, filming the entire episode from the point of view of the boys’ beloved car. The monster in that episode is killed by shoving a nickel, which Dean was lucky to find left behind in the car’s backseat by a valet, into the creature’s mouth before cutting off its head.
- Through their adventures, our brothers would often find themselves running afoul of human law enforcement agents. Victor Henricksen was an FBI agent who first appeared, along with his partner Calvin Reidy, in the season two episode, “Nightshifter.” Both would later die in the season three episode “Jus in Bello” but Calvin’s actor, Kurt Evans, would return later in another role, only to die again – this time at the hands of Castiel.
- Despite being the main protagonists of the show, Sam and Dean are only directly named in a total of six episode titles. Three of these episodes include their family name of “Winchester,” and three of them use only their first names. The only other cast members referenced by their first name in a title is Bobby and Mary, though “devil” is used in the titles of eight episodes.
- During season six, Castiel (along with Balthazer) creates an alternate timeline where the Winchesters are driving Kripke’s original idea for their car, a ‘65 Mustang. Other changes to the world include Ellen and Jo being alive with the former now married to Bobby.

Now for the final round! In the following paragraph, see how many errors you can spot. I will not tell you just yet how many in total there are, so read carefully then post your total score below.
In the beginning, each of Supernatural’s seasons were twenty-two episodes total until season six, when the show went to twenty-three. This would remain the size of each season until the final season which had a shorter, twenty-episode run - which ended up being split into three parts because of the worldwide COVID pandemic. Throughout these episodes, the boys fought everything from fairies to cosplayers to bigfoot to God’s sister to God himself. They weren’t always alone, however, and had many allies as well, ranging from angels to demons to werewolves to sheriffs to Scooby-doo. They even encountered other versions of themselves who teleported into the bunker in a mint green mini cooper, listening to Savage Garden’s “Chained to You.” Though it doesn’t technically count, Dean did argue with himself in a dream once. Neither of them ever settled down with anyone for a period, or had any children before their adopted son, Jack, until the last episode where a look into the future showed Sam happily married to Eileen with a son named after his brother. Said episode was named after the Kansas song which had been adopted as a theme for the show, “Dust in the Wind.”
Oh! And if you catch me in an unintentional error, I will award you a “SUPER SPECIAL AWESOME point” which is worth 3x a normal point.
Now who is the biggest Supernatural nerd ready to correct me without looking up the answers?
Good luck all in proving me wrong!
