Welcome back to "Memorable Moments" of Supernatural! This edition focuses on episode 12.12 "Stuck In The Middle (With You)". Once again I have put together a list of what I felt were the best and most memorable moments from this episode. The list varies from week to week depending on what has transpired. I hope you enjoy it and share what your picks would be.
The brothers trapping Ramiel in the ring of fire.....
....and 'requesting' that he tell them how to save Castiel.
Brother's in Unison
Sam and Dean extended their hands out to help up.....
a cured Castiel.
Best Sam Moment
After a gruelling battle, Sam gets the upper hand and kills Ramiel.
Best Dean Moments
Dean not accepting Crowley's answer that there is no cure for Castiel.
'Shut up! Shut up! We don't have time for you. So either help us or get the hell out of here!'
After checking out Castiel's wound, Dean tries to comfort his friend.
Dean: I've been worse
Cas : Oh yeah when? Dean some thing's wrong, I can't heal myself. I think the demon's spear was poison. I think I'm dying.
Dean: No, no you just need some time okay. You'll heal the old fashion way.
Best Socially Awkward Castiel Moments
Castiel gets hit on by the waitress Mandy...
...much to Castiel's confusion. After some teasing, a comment is made that you tell someone is a waitress because they smell like food.
Of course Castiel has to verify this statement.
I also have to go with.... when Castiel comes in the house looking for Mary.
She comes in to the room, claims she needed to find the bathroom.
Castiel replies " Urination, I understand'
Best Crowley Moment
Crowley confronting Ramiel to try and save the Winchesters and Castiel.
However Ramiel declines his appeal, feeling betrayed and justified to kill these intruders.
Later Crowley recalls the significance of the sigils on the staff and .....
saves a dying Castiel.
Best Mary Moment
Mary finally meeting Crowley, but she's not so impressed with the introduction.
Mary: Your him, the King of Hell.
Crowley: You must be Mother Winchester. Pleasure, I've heard so much.
Mary: Touch me and I'll kill you.
I also have to go with Mary's conversation with Ketch.
Mary: You sent me after a damn Prince of Hell.
Ketch: We didn't know what he was, just knew he had the item.
Mary: That's not good enough! I lost a friend. I almost lost one of my boys.
Ketch: And we apologise.
Mary: Shut up! Anything happens like that again. Anything and I will burn you down, all of you.
Ketch: Is that a threat?
Mary: It's a promise.
Best Bad Ass Moment
As a wounded Castiel crawls away from a spear bearing Ramiel ......
...Mary send Ramiel flying with her vehicle.
The black mucus coming from Castiel's mouth.
Most Chilling Moment
Seeing only Ramiel's feet as he slowly walks while whistling 'La donna è mobile'.
The Lock Decoder.
Most Nostalgic Moment
Seeing Azazel aka The Yellow Eyed Demon.
....meeting his demise.
Most Moving/Powerful Moment
Castiel, mortally wounded, gives his last words to the brothers and Mary.
"....You listen to me...thank you ...know you have been the best part of my life and the things we shared together, they have changed me. You're my family.
I love you. I love all of you. Just please, please don't make my last moments be spent watching you die. Just run, save yourselves..."
as Mary ...
...and Sam helplessly stand over him.
The blackening of Castiel's veins from the poison.
and the blood from Castiel's wounds.
Best Filming and Editing
I loved the camera circling around the restaurant table as the gang make their orders and talk with each other.
I also liked how they jumped from past to present using 'Headers' to indicate the time, characters and events. ....
Best Slow-Mo and Best Musical Cue
Gang slow walking to the restaurant to the music 'Crop won't ever come' by Robin Loxley and Jay Hawke.
walking all serious....
... and cool.
The flash light shining onto the iron rods.
Best Phone Message
Mary's text to the BMOL....
....she has them as Hobbits.
Mary had taken the 'COLT!' from the Prince...... AND......
.....CROWLEY has LUCIFER captured!!!!!! (that's one hell of a meat suit Nick aka Mark Pellegrino)
