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