All of the options.
 
Yeah, I cheated.  Sue me.  If any category needed an “All of the Above”, it was this one.  The was one category where I encouraged people to vote six times and pick each option.  That’s technically what I did!  The voting was really close for most of the items listed.  I definitely can’t argue with the choice made, but I can’t argue for the others not being made either.  They were all train wrecks in their own regard and the writers should be admonished for it.

Two words - grenade launcher - “Who We Are”
 
It was in my reviews all season.  I belly ached over when in the Hell was Dean finally going to get to use that grenade launcher!  I even told myself that when he finally did, it would be a disappointment.  Turned out to be more satisfying that anything beyond my wildest dreams.  In the end, it had to win in my book.  But I absolutely loved the scene before it too, which was the chosen winner.  Heck, I loved every scene in that episode and it seems to be winning a lot of categories here.  It was too extraordinary and it’s amazing how much of our favorites was backed into that short 42 minutes.

The nonlinear style storytelling while introducing the Princes of Hell - “Stuck in the Middle (With You)”
 
This was very close for Runner-Up.  Technically, I could have listed all of the three remaining choices.  But by two votes we go with the season ender, “All Along the Watchtower.”  As for the two winners, honestly I had a super hard time choosing between the two of them.  They were both so well executed.  In the end, I chose “Stuck in the Middle (With You)” because I absolutely love Quentin Tarantino’s work and it was a brilliant way to introduce the Princes of Hell.  Too bad the whole idea was completely ruined in following episodes.  But hey, I have that gem to keep me warm when I realize there’s only about four episodes I’ll re-watch when I get the season 12 DVD set.

The horrible rip off of Harry Potter with Kendricks schools (making students fight to the death?) - “The British Invasion”
 
Honestly, I think trying to bring back Hitler wasn’t a completely horrible idea.  After all, it does seem like a logical extension with The Thule given their mission.  However, the execution ended up being horrible and the whole thing a waste.  It ended up existing so Dean could say some sophomoric line all the way to the next episode.  Given that, there was SOME plausibility in the plot while there was absolutely none in the completely asinine back story of Mick Davies and his schooling at Kendricks in “The British Invasion.”   The questionable nature of that backstory never explained why the British Men of Letters are so ruthless and evil.  All we were left with is…they’re British?  The British created Harry Potter so all schools must be like that.  Even the uniforms were ripoffs!  The backstory never really matched the motivations and actions of Mick’s character and was totally out in left field.  That flashback would have been way more believable if it belonged to Mr. Ketch.   Oh, and they have this code that contradicts everything we learned about them so far.  Epic fail.  Epic.

“Broomstick Cowboy” by Bobby Goldsboro - “Regarding Dean”
 
I should really call a mulligan here.  I only included “Carry on Wayward Son” because it was nominated multiple times.  Is it really fair to put “Supernatural’s” season ending anthem in this mix?  After all, it’s been in every season. However, I must cater to the masses.  This does pose an interesting question though, was the classic rock/music that bad this season?  
 
Personally, I picked “Broomstick Cowboy,” just because I’ve always loved Bobby Goldsboro for no damned good reason.  He’s someone my parents listened to.  I couldn’t imagine a better song for Dean riding the bull than that one.  But that’s just personal preference. “Solitude” really deserves the prize here.  It did pack and emotional punch during the closing montage of “Keep Calm and Carry On.”  It gave us all the feels over Sam’s imprisonment and Mary’s dilemma until the next week (which then totally squandered that opportunity).

The return of Roy and Walt (We haven’t seen you guys…Since you killed us.) - “Who We Are”
 
This was a really close category and an awesome suggestion by paladinteacher.  The winner was very clear, but the rest were super close.  Me, I really loved Sam’s emotional reaction to seeing the Colt after all those years, but ultimately to me the most satisfying was we finally got an update on what happened to Roy and Walt.  “Dark Side of the Moon” is one of my personal favorite episodes and my heart still skips a beat over Sam and then Dean (after issuing his threatening ultimatum that when they come back from the dead he’ll be pissed) being brutally murdered by Roy and Walt.  Leave it up to Sam to take the high road in a moment of need.  That is so Sam.  Anyway, comments have been made on this site for years asking whatever happened to Roy and Walt.  Now we know.  
 
As for the winner, you can’t go wrong doing a callback to a signature line in the pilot, this time spoken by Sam.  It’s twelve years in the making.
