Think you’re a superfan who really knows #Supernatural? Let’s put all that time spent rewatching 327 hours of heart stopping broments to the test! Below are three questions to ponder for a few days. These aren’t trivia questions that ask for impossibly hard details you never notice because you are holding your breath in terror and/or staring at the fiendishly good looks of our heroes as they battle evil. No, these answers are probably buried deep in your mind. The fun is slowly liberating all that SPNFamily knowledge, consciously or subconsciously, over several days. In other words, we’re giving you an excuse to think about Supernatural day and night (like you need another excuse to do that!)!
Think about them when you have to wait for a friend for a very long time
Think about them on those long, backroads road trips.
Think about them when you’re drifting off to sleep at night.
Jot answers down on your phone, PC, hunter’s journal, or any little sticky note you keep handy.
Whenever you call if quits, add up all your points and see how you did! Don’t Worry: Hints are generously supplied to help you get started!
Brainteaser #1 (Difficulty Level: Medium)
With 327 episodes in the series, there was ample opportunity to be creative with episode titles. Curiously, Q, X and Z did not have the honor of being the first letter of any episode title, but the other 23 letters of the alphabet all led episode names. Think of at least one episode title that begins which each letter of the alphabet, other than Q, X or Z. Note: “The” does not count for the letter “T”.
Total Possible Points: 23
Brainteaser #2 (Difficulty Level: Medium)
With that many episodes, it isn’t surprising that characters other than letters of the Roman alphabet were used in titles. Name the two episode titles that do NOT begin with a letter of the alphabet!
Total Possible Points: 2
Brainteaser #3 (Difficulty Level: Easy)
Continuing our trip down memory lane about the creative challenge of filling 327 episodes with unique themes, how many holidays did we share with Sam and Dean in 15 years? 15.14 “Last Holiday” fast forwarded through an entire year of happy holidays for our bunker buddies, but before that last hurrah, specific holidays or special celebrations had occasionally been used as essential backdrops for an episode’s plot. Name at least one episode that prominently features each of the following holidays:
- Valentine’s Day
- Birthday Party
- Engagement Announcement
Total Possible Points: 7 + Bonus Points
Total Possible Points: 32 plus extra credit
