[Update: The Super Stats page is no longer available.]
The results are in for the Great Supernatural Death Count through the end of season 1 (plus select season 5 episodes). Are you as skeptical as Dean? As interested as Sam? The totals (so far) are on the Super Stats page; and the details, including death by names are also available.
The details page also includes explanations of who I counted and didn’t. In a nutshell, I’m counting human deaths. Demons in a human host aren’t counted unless we know/see the person prior to possession and know the victim’s name. In the case of a catastrophe (plane crash), only the people with names are counted. If the death occurred prior to the episode, it’s not counted, unless the death is the reason for the guys’ investigation (e.g., Emily from “Skin”).
I encourage your comments. Are my numbers correct? (I have been known to make mistakes, so if you spot one, please let me know!) Do you agree with my methodology? Should humans who don’t die but are still victims of the supernatural (e.g., turned into vampires) be included in the death count? Should Pa Bender be included in the count? Although technically a human, he certainly isn’t human. Do you agree? Or am I full of it? 😉
