"Snapped," the hit series that details the stories of women who snap and kill someone, is an absolutely iconic true-crime TV show. Exhibit A.) Cardi B herself references her obsession with the show in her song "Rodeo." Exhibit B.) The show has run for a whopping 28 seasons and will soon hit a major television milestone when it airs its 500th episode.
The 500th episode of "Snapped," which airs on Oxygen on Sunday, November 22 at 6/5c, recounts how a small Kansas town was changed forever after local man Randy Sheridan was shot five times while jogging near his home. Suspicion immediately fell on Sheridan's ex, Dana Flynn, and soon scandalous details about an affair with the local pastor, a heated custody battle, and more details came to light as authorities tried to determine who really masterminded Sheridan's brutal murder.
It's a special episode that will be worth the wait — but how can one, ahem, kill the time before this monumental occasion? Well, there are probably about 500 ways to celebrate the "Snapped" milestone, but Oxygen has highlighted a few particularly special ideas.
1. Find out who you'd REALLY be in an episode of "Snapped."
Have you ever watched a true-crime show and wondered how you’d fit in if you were involved in a murder case? Do you have the sleuthing skills to be the detective who cracks the case? Or are you the nosy neighbor who provides the gossip investigators need to zero in on a suspect? Thanks to Oxygen's new Instagram filter, you can uncover your “Snapped” identity once and for all.
Simply download the "True Crime Persona" Instagram filter, available on both Oxygen's official Instagram and the official "Snapped" Instagram, and find out whether you’d be the first on the scene, the prosecutor, or uh ... the one who snapped. Then you can share what you discover with your friends and see if they're shocked! (Let's hope so.)
2. Read every "Snapped" episode logline to determine the wildest case.
So this might sound like a tall order, but actually, all you have to do is head over to Oxygen's Twitter on Friday. The account will be tweeting out all 500 "Snapped" episode loglines with the hashtag #Snapped500. Each episode's mini-description will remind you of the most shocking, unbelievable crimes profiled on "Snapped." Flashback to the wife who convinced her sons to murder her Florida dentist husband in Season 1, the former stripper who put an end to her husband's cheating ways in Season 10, or the woman who shook her Alaska village by stabbing an ex-lover over a failed romance.
Pick out the most fascinating loglines and stream the episodes on Oxygen.com. (Click here for all options to watch all "Snapped" episodes.)
3. Watch a special "lost" episode of "Snapped."
Do you think you've seen every episode of "Snapped?” Think again. Oxygen is airing the new episode "Snapped: The Episode You Never Saw," and you can catch it first on Oxygen's Facebook page. The special episode can be viewed on Facebook on Friday, November 20 at 9/8c. Watch and comment along with other "Snapped" super-fans and try to solve the crime together.
Plus, as an added bonus, there will be behind-the-scenes footage from producers as they discuss making the show and share their favorite memories of "Snapped." Is there any better way to celebrate than with the show's massive community of producers and fans?
