Re: Supernatural Mythology Episodes

I'm not really sure you can make such a cut-and-dried distinction. With Supernatural, even the episodes which might be termed MotW usually have an important ongoing-character-arc aspect to them, and the nature of the monster often relates to whatever emotional issues the boys are dealing with at the moment. In fact, with them both being such Men, who tend to keep their emotions bottled up anyway (Dean more than Sam), the monster is often the only way of getting to that emotional core at all. So what I'm saying is that even if an episode is not mythology-plot-arc heavy, it might still be important-character-arc heavy, and indeed sometimes the two are indistinguishable.

Having said all that, here are what I think are the most important episodes you would need to see:
