Bravo Supernatural creators and writers and directors and actors and everyone involved in season 2, that was some damn fine television. I really struggled putting this top five list together due to the sheer amount of great stand alone and story arc episodes. It normally takes longer for a show to pick up where it left off and build towards something better, but from the very first episode, In My Time of Dying, they hit the floor running and soon eclipsed a very strong debut series. The Winchester brothers went through the ringer more, there was a fair bit of Jeffrey Dean Morgan which is always appreciated by this viewer, Bobby Singer (Jim Beaver) plays a bigger part of the story and the lives of Sam (Jared Padelecki) and Dean (Jensen Acles), and of course the Impala is ever present. There's also the ongoing hunt for Azrazel (Fredric Lane) and his plan to bring all the people with special abilities together, and the new cast of hunters that help Sam and Dean as they're old friends of John's. The trio of Ellen (Samantha Ferris, daughter Jo (Alona Tal), and Ash (the incredible Chad Lindberg) all add some drama to proceedings for sure but also help give some background to us the viewers as to what life as a hunter is like from a different perspective to the Winchester boys. All in all I felt thoroughly satisfied at the end of season two, I felt I'd grown into the story and the events still gripped me despite me starting so many years later I know that Sam and Dean don't get permanently harmed. I also really enjoyed how well the finale, a stunning end in its own right, also sets up the story arc for season three. Anyway, enough waffling. On with the list!

While Sam protects Evan from hell hounds, Dean is tempted by the demon, who tries to convince him to trade his soul for his father's life, who she claims did the same to save Dean and is now suffering in hell for it.
