Like before, I have randomly (pulled the titles from a Tupperware container) listed four episodes and put my thoughts are on each.
For example, if you hear an episode title, what comes to mind? Is it a scene, a moment, a line or song? And why? It is your favourite or is it the emotional impact it has on you?
Maybe it simply makes you laugh or hide under the covers. Now it’s your turn. What are your thoughts on the following episodes?
"Heart" – For this episode, it will always be the last moments where Madison is pleading with Sam to end her life, as she cannot live knowing she is a monster. And Dean, trying to spare his brother the pain, steps in and offers to do it for him. But Sam declines and fulfills Madison’s request. When Sam turned to Dean, so devastated and crying, and Dean waiting in silence with the one tear running down his cheek and then reacting to the gunshot, I was an absolute mess.
I believe Sam’s breakdown was a combination of many things; not just having to kill Madison, whom he obviously had feelings for, but everything that had been put on his plate up until that moment. Dealing with the loss of Jessica and John and his fears of his destiny and the connection he seemed to have with the YED (Azazel). I also believe Sam was so devastated over not being able to save Madison because he felt that if he couldn’t save her, then he, too, couldn’t be saved.
"A Very Supernatural Christmas" - This episode had so many great moments. I loved all the scenes with the wee-Winchesters and learning where the amulet came from. It was so sweet of Sam giving Dean the Christmas he wanted. But for some reasons the scene that always comes to me first is when Sam and Dean are tied up in the Carrigans' dining room. I love how nonchalant and cheery the Carrigans are as they perform their rituals on the brothers. The comments and banter going back and forth was epic.
"Abandon All Hope" - To this day, I have not been able to view this episode since its original debut. It haunts me that much. The entire hardware store scenes will forever stay with me. Dean’s contact with Bobby over the old radio. How gentle Bobby was with Dean while still keeping him in focus. Ellen keeping it together as they made the explosives. Sam gently putting the trigger in Jo’s hand and saying goodbye. And Dean’s farewell kiss to Jo. But most of all it was the realization on Jo’s face when she knew that Ellen had no intentions of leaving her, that Ellen was staying back to die alongside her. I think this moment hit me the strongest because I too could never have been able to leave my daughter to die alone.
"Weekend At Bobby’s" - This is another one that had some great moments. I loved seeing the brothers crammed in the small car. And it was great that they got one up on Crowley. But my favourite moment is the montage of Bobby’s day in the life to the music of "The Gambler." Every time I hear that song or the mentioning of the episode, the montage is the first thing that comes to mind.
