4.  The Return of Bobby Singer - "The Inside Man"

s10e17 282

The biggest mistake this show EVER made was killing off Bobby.  It's never been the same since the decision was made, spectacular death episode be damned.  So yes, an episode devoted to him, content but bored in Heaven, helping Sam and Castiel get to Metatron via a wayward psychic, just makes me smile.  I miss Bobby.  I miss how he’ll dive into a harebrained plan head first, just because it’s the boys.  I love that he got to do another adventure with Castiel.  I love that the door to Heaven is door #42.  Most of all, I love that even in Heaven, Bobby is surly!  

IM 12

No, most of all I really love that Bobby quickly figured out that Dean wouldn’t like Sam doing this without his knowledge and told Sam so.  But he did so in a fatherly, sentimental, loving sort of way through a letter.  Words of wisdom and caution, aka classic Bobby.  Anything that brings that single man tear to Sam’s eye delivers a message that is sorely needed.  

It was so nice that Sam took that message to heart and included Dean in...wait a minute.   Ah well, I got warm fuzzies from the ending at least.

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
