A fan-favorite villain returns in Supernatural Season 15, Episode 5. That return led to a viewer spike for the episode. Here’s a look at the ratings.

The Supernatural Season 15, Episode 5 ratings are in. Thought that big return was a shocker? Well, it certainly helped to give the ratings a boost.

The final season is now 25% of the way through. We’ve got 15 more episodes left, which means plenty of time for more shocking returns, villainous twists, and more. The Winchesters are now (rightfully) terrified of God, knowing that this is likely the end of the world as they will ever see it. Will they end up in a battle that is brother against brother? I guess the only way to find out is to watch it to the end.

But for now, we’re dealing with a fan-favorite villain returning. Lilith is back, and she’s certainly out for some revenge. She’s also out to help God with his tasks because that’s the only reason she’s been brought back from the Empty. The Winchesters are going to need a few friends by their side.

The return of the first white-eyed demon (in fact, the first demon ever in the lore) brought a ratings spike to the show. As the demo remained steady at 0.3, the total viewership took a jump by almost 20%. This is a season-high, which suggests that keeping spoilers like Lilith’s return a surprise is certainly something the show should have done much more in the past!

This is actually a seven-episode high. The figures beat the last two episodes of Season 14, suggesting that God’s big plan and this fight to the end is something fans need to see play out.

This is only the Live + Same Day ratings, too. When you factor in the DVRs and 7-day ratings, expect to see those figures jump up even more.
