‘Supernatural’: The 13 Scariest Episodes

Lawrence Yee

Today is Friday the 13th. It’s also the morning after the 13th season of Supernatural kicked off.

To celebrate the milestone, iTunes has released a special Supernatural Super Room where fans can watch twelve of the scariest episodes hand-picked by executive producers Bob Singer and Andrew Dabb.

The episodes are:

  1. “Pilot”
  2. “Skin”
  3. “Croatoan”
  4. “The Benders”
  5. “The End”
  6. “Repo Man”
  7. “Bitten”
  8. “Everybody Loves a Clown”
  9. “Family Remains”
  10. “Taxi Driver”
  11. “Defending Your Life”
  12. “Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things”

The 13th, voted upon by you, the FANDOM audience, is “Bloody Mary.”

Based on the frightening folklore, the episode centers around the titular ghost who is summoned and commits horrible murders and gouges out the eyes of her victims.

Supernatural keeps bringing the scares nearly 300 episodes, but it’s the leads — Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki — that keep it going.

“The core to any show is the character,” writer-turned-showunner Dabb said. “We may rearrange the deck chairs but it’s always them. As long as their true and engaged, fans will watch. At the end of the day, people are here to see Sam and Dean. This show lasting this long is to their credit.”

What do you think is the scariest episode of Supernatural?
