8.  The Bro-ment That Revealed Essentially What We Knew All Along -  "The Werther Project"   

s10e19 571 Broment

We know that Sam has been keeping terrible secrets from Dean, and Dean is probably aware that something is going on.  But at this point, he has no idea that Sam has made a deal with the Devil, or the King of Hell’s mother, Rowena.  That secret nearly killed Sam through his hallucinations in “The Werther Project” while Dean conquered his because there was an actual fate worse for him than dying, becoming a demon.  After Dean rescued Sam by figuring out the key to opening the Werther box was the blood of both of him, he uttered the profound words that clearly define a series, as well as the next season in battling the darkness.  

Dean:  That says something, doesn't it? Werther splits us up in there. Within an hour, we're both on the brink of death. Sorry about yesterday, going rogue on you like that.
Sam:   You know what, Dean. Don't apologize, I... I think that makes us even.
Dean:  The universe is trying to tell us something we both should already know. We're stronger together than apart.

It was so wonderful that Sam took these words into heart and let Dean on the plan to...wait a minute.  Oh well, we got this classic brotherly exchange.

Happy New Year for all! Half an hour left for me still but I needed to toss that here. Nice list Alice. Loved the number one. Baby is perfect!

Here for you all.

Good choice on that number 1! :D I'm afraid most of my highlights would be Sam based :P

I think all of my top ten moments would be from Baby. But I did love all your choices. They were great moments from S10 and 11. this was a highlight for me too!

Alice, I agree with ever one of your choices. All these scenes were all defining Winchester, SPN why I watch moments. I wish the showdown between Dean and Cain had carried over with some ramifications but it seemed to be a one episode breath taking event (no consistency with MOC Dean). I totally agree with your assessment that the biggest mistake was killing Bobby. Every time I watch an ep prior to his death, I think the same thing. He could have continued to enhance the story and I loved the possible romance with Jodi. My only change is I would have switched 1 and 2 but again those moments in Baby were happy and priceless and who wouldn't rather see our boys enjoy a carefree moment. Thanks for the New Year recap!

Test: test comment, delete me.
And, today, in comments that don't look suspicious at all...

Don't worry about that eilf. That test comment came from my husband, aka the WFB network administrator. We've been having email notification problems for about a month now and he's been trying to fix it. It's funny, because I told him to pick my article for the test and I even told him (actual quote), "Don't worry, no one will notice." Of course I thought I would get around to removing the comment much sooner than I did. :)

The hubby and I have been doing a crap load of maintenance on the site the last few days (trying to clean up stuff for an upcoming February server move), so you might notice a some more strange things in the weeks to come. Thanks for noticing though!

Hi Alice, heh, I just thought it was funny was all, like someone was trying their new account - but they were going to end up being called 'test' . Never occurred to me it was an admin thing. Sorry :D
