Sam Winchester could exorcise demons with the power of his mind. The skilled hunter also successfully brain wrestled Lucifer and sacrificed himself by plunging into the Hell, all to save the world. Along with his elder brother Dean, Sam has fought scores of witches, angels, demons, ghosts and other supernatural creatures.
But one of the scariest things Sam Winchester ever faced were killer clowns!
Supernatural fans first learned of Sam’s aversion to clowns in the Season 2 episode “Everybody Loves A Clown.” In Sam’s defense, clowns can be scary. Okay, maybe Ronald McDonald doesn’t make me cry (sorry Sam!) but the creepy clown offered in Stephen King’s “It” became the stuff of nightmares.
In the Season 7 episode “Plucky Pennywhistle’s Magical Menagerie, Sam had to conquer several clowns. Seriously, these were some of the scariest looking clowns that I have ever seen! So I was quite impressed that Sam put aside his fear to battle this menace.
With Supernatural returning for its twelfth season in October and Sam in peril courtesy of the London chapter of The Men of Letters, our hero certainly has his very capable hands full. I bet at this moment, Sam would happily tackle a room of angry clowns rather than a gun toting Woman of Letters.
Or maybe not.
