The moment is finally here! The nominations have been tabulated, now it's time to vote. Below there are 17 categories that give you, the fan, the power to choose the good, bad, and indifferent moments of "Supernatural" season 12.
I'm sure a couple of you very estute fans are going, "Wait a second, there were only 16 categories in the nominatons." That's true, but a couple of fans chose to submit write in categories, and one by paladinteacher was way too good to pass up. I could easily come up with enough good choices for it. So you'll notice that as our "Bonus Write-In Question" at the end of the voting.
The rules are simple, there are none. Once you submit your vote, refresh the page and you can vote again as often as you'd like. Results will be hidden until the winners are revealed, which will be in a couple of weeks. Voting will run until Sunday, July 16th at 11:59 pm ET.
I'm going to warn, it may take a minute for all the questions to load on each page. Please be patient. Also, as a standard disclaimer, remember, "Supernatural" fans are an opinionated lot. Some of these questions may offend those who choose to be less critical or those that don't think we're being critical enough! Plain and simple, if you don't like a question, feel free to skip it. All these responses are based on fan choices made during the nomination process (with a couple extra thrown in by yours truly to beef up the selections) and they're there to gauge fan opinion across a very wide spectrum. They're bound to be controversial in places. Also, if an option is missing that you think should have been there, that is the importance of being involved in the nomination process. I only can go with what I'm given!
"The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it, because it's only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles, wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on." — Chuck Palahniuk
This was a great episode and I had just the right videos saved for it. Like Sam, Dean and Castiel, the movies it referenced are legendary. So the chosen word is "legend" mixed with brotherly and family feels. I have wanted to add two videos about the second song for a long time because Jensen sang it at a con. Also, I have a brief introduction to Tarantino's movies that the show referenced.
Welcome back to "Memorable Moments" of Supernatural! This edition focuses on episode 12.12 "Stuck In The Middle (With You)". Once again I have put together a list of what I felt were the best and most memorable moments from this episode. The list varies from week to week depending on what has transpired. I hope you enjoy it and share what your picks would be.
Rich, riveting, complex and so full of story details and character threads that it's impossible to make anything of Supernatural's “Stuck in the Middle (With You)” in just one viewing. Consequently, my review offers observations from two separate viewings: My original reactions when the episode first aired plus additional thoughts from my hiatus rewatch. These "retrospectives" were written with the insight of knowing what happened in the season 12 finale.
12.12 was brought to us by director Richard Speight Jr. with a nod toReservoir Dogsand the incomparable Quentin Tarantino. This episode was not only a visual delight but a whole new wonderment of plot and a fantastic story of mystery and teasing until the very last moments.

Loosing oneself is probably the worst that can happen to a person. Forgetting everything and everyone you hold dear. I mean of course it would be great to forget the bad stuff. Who wouldn’t want that? But if the cost was also to forget the good it is really not worth it.
Welcome back to the "Memorable Moments" series for Supernatural! For episode 12.11, "Regarding Dean", I have once again put together a list of what I felt were the best and most memorable moments from this story. The list varies from episode to episode depending on what transpires. I hope you enjoy it and share what your picks would be!

Wednesday’s Report Card for Supernatural Season 12
This is a roundup of my ratings for Season 12 episodes. A Supernatural Report Card!
It includes my grading system because there is variation from reviewer to reviewer.
(Alice Jester likes to use letter grades. Nate Winchester uses shotgun shells.)
I use numbers 1-5 and agonize over every decimal point.
Join me in discovering my final tally. Did Supernatural Season 12 make the grade?
Another “Supernatural” season has come and gone and you know what that means. It's time for our annual awards! Season Twelve especially was a rather polarizing season. You either loved it, hated it, or were rather indifferent. Huh, come to think of it, that sounds like every season, doesn't it?
Welcome back to the "Memorable Moments" visual review series for Supernatural season 12! This edition memorializes 12.10 "Lily Sunder Has Some Regrets". Once again I 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!
Part 1 of "Defense of Supernatural Season 12
" makes the case that the return of Sam and Dean's loving relationship and the harmonious blending of the season's arcs added up to one of the best years in the Supernatural
series. In Part 2, Samandean addresses the other major characters and storylines, and how they contributed, or detracted, from season 12's enjoyment.
"Place me behind prison walls - walls of stone ever so high, ever so thick, reaching ever so far into the ground. There is a possibility that in some way or another I may be able to escape. But stand me on that floor and draw a chalk line around me and have me give my word of honor never to cross it. Can I get out of that circle? No. Never." — Karl G. Maeser
How the Winchesters got into this situation was controversial but it was a juicy idea. I loved 2.19 "Folsom Prison Blues"and thought if "First Blood" was as well executed, we would have a grand old time. As it turned out, it was good but it could have been better. It would have been great if it would have lasted like two episodes.
My chosen word for this fan vid article is, of course, "prison" so I checked up on a few episodes where our boys have been in prison or jail. Also, I might have chosen the weirdest song about prisons as a fan video but it works.
To title this article a "defense" is actually a bit of a misnomer; it's more a ringing endorsement of the season.
Are you ready for part three of the Christmas story? If you missed the opening chapters of this year's Christmas in the bunker with the Winchesters, you'll want to go back to read Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 before continuing. After this we have still one part to go.
The original idea for this story was to make it ready before Christmas day but unfortunately that didn't come to pass. Sometimes I plan too many things to do and I realize that there is only so much you can do in a day. I didn't have a holiday (vacation time) to finish it but so much was already done. I decided just to relax, keep the idea for the story in mind and slowly let it reveal itself. That was good as I could fully focus on it and write all that was needed. So finally we have arrived at the part that is my favorite.
The 250th episode! Who knew way back when the mission was searching for John and mourning Jess that this is where we’d end up all these years later?First Bloodwas a bit of a different flavor forSupernatural– but then a lot of season twelve has been about changing it up in that sense and it worked, for the most part. The action style, the approach of the feds and the emotions delivered well. As a 250th tribute to the Winchester family we’ve come to love, all the marks were met.
