Rick Springfield (Vince Vincente, Lucifer)
 
This is a tricky category.  One year I broke it out for recurring vs. one time guests but even that was not possible this year.  Most of the nominees appeared more than once.  Then you have Jim Beaver who has been in numerous episodes since season one and Samantha Smith also falls in this category.  Yet her title is guest star, so she qualified and she did some amazing things with Mary this year, thus her incredible ranking in this vote.     
 
Personally, I love what Rick Springfield did in his short time on the air.  He brought something different to Lucifer.  No, he wasn’t better than Mark Pellegrino, but it he brought some real creep factor to the role that had been missing.  But hey, that’s probably my inner 1980’s fan girl talking.  
 
The real congratulations though goes to David Haydn-Jones who brought us something very memorable in his recurring role this season.  Mr. Ketch was a guy you loved to hate and he had a grenade launcher to prove it.  Well done sir.

Family Group Hug - “Who We Are” 
 
I really, really, really did love the bull riding scene in “Regarding Dean.”  I howled at that for hours after it happened and I did throw a couple of votes it’s way.  But, the family group hug had all the feels and was a very rewarding way to tie up the whole slow, perplexing, and cold Mary comes back from the dead plot that was more agonizing than fun for me to watch all season.  I just love closure, especially closure that brings on the water works.  But as I said before, you can’t go wrong with the sweet sentiment of “DW” and “SW” in “The Memory Remains.”  It was a perfect and is a well deserved win.

I’m with the masses on this one.  What a horribly contrived, out of character way to setup a scenario with massive potential that went nowhere.  There’s nothing much else to say other than the lovers of Dean riding the mechanical bull outweighs the haters.

Sam: "You can ask me any kind of question you want. The answer's gonna be the exact same – Screw you. You want to get mad? You want to get mean? I've been tortured by the Devil himself. So you, you're just an accent in a pantsuit. What can you do to me?” - “Keep Calm and Carry On”

Crowley: “Whenever there’s a world-ending crisis at hand, I know where to place my bets. It’s on you, you big, beautiful, lumbering piles of flannel.”  - “All Along the Watchtower”
 
I’ve always been a sucker for Crowley’s zingers and this one is particularly poignant since it came a little before he met his end.  He was given some real crap this season and this was a rare gem at the right time.  But Sam’s smackdown of very annoying Lady Toni before suffering some senseless torture was pretty damn pleasing.  Dean’s variation of Rorschach’s famous quote in The Watchmen won over a lot of voters as well.

Homage to the work of Quentin Tarantino - “Stuck in the Middle (With You)”
 
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVED Dean finally getting to use the grenade launcher in “Who We Are” and I LOVED the reference to Lucille in “Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell.”  However, those were one quick yet beautiful moment.  The amount of effort not to mention brilliant execution that went into “Stuck in the Middle (With You)” is too hard to ignore.  You could tell how much writer Davy Perez and director Richard Speight Jr. loved the work one Quentin Tarantino and pulled all the stops.  The crew must have had a blast too.   It was one for the ages.
