(Probably Time To Flee)
Episode eight is a unique place in the episode line up: over the years it has marked a mini-hiatus and as a result been a heck of a cliff-hanger. At the same time, it has lined up the following episodes to lead into a mid-season finale by soft-balling information and not being too intense, but just the right blend of comedic and dramatic. And then…well, and then there was “Bugs” – and what can we say about that one that hasn’t already been said?
Welcome back to the Supernatural "Memorable Moments" series! For 13.07, "War of the Worlds", I once again put together a list of what I felt were the best and most memorable moments from the episode. The list varies from episode to episode depending on what transpired. I hope you enjoy it and share what your picks would be!

(Probably Time To Flee)
A breath pause and some brother time, or a serious plot development – Supernatural's seventh episode each season has an either/or approach on these moments. Regardless of which way it goes, episode seven has given us some truly great scenes through the series:
"The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.” ― Sun Tzu
For this time around I chose to take a completely different point of view, or idea, for my writing. When I watched the three videos that are shown below, one mutual thing from the music hit me. Their music was like charging into battle. Two of them have the same music, scenes and characters that fit the mythology of the season. I could imagine old battlefields with opposite sides running forward, first slowly but then accelerating to full speed before clashing to one another. Then the fight would start - swings of swords or shots of muskets, shield blocks or shots of arrows, toss of spears and rams of horses. It was easy to decide that my word for this article would be war, and choosing the videos with appropriate battle music was fitting. War is not pretty.
Though it feels like so long ago, it wasn’t that many moons back that we watched as Castiel confronted his own likeness in an inky abyss while Sam and Dean struggled to overcome grief and loss in the same breath as trying to teach a newly born Nephilim the ins and outs of humankind and hunting. ‘The Big Empty’ was emotional, exciting and certainly unique when it originally aired, and in the grand scheme of season thirteen, on second viewing offers some familiar refrains and perspectives as well.
