Supernatural fans, you had your chance to be heard, now it's my turn! What sort of award categories did this highly opinionated redhead come up with this year? As usual, an entertaining mix of the good, bad, and completely shallow! Here is part one of the WFB Editor's Choice Awards for Season Ten in no particular order: 

Best Appearance of Sam Winchester’s Hair

“The Hunter Games”

sup1010 1207

Hands down, one of the best shots ever, let alone Season 10.  It rains in Vancouver, a lot.  How come we haven’t gotten such a delicious wet hair shot before now?




Best Dean Winchester Zinger

“The Things We Left Behind”

SPN 0586

No, Cas! An emergency is a dead body, okay? Or—or a wigged-out angel, or the Apocalypse, take three. Some chick bolting on you is not an emergency. That’s … that’s every Friday night for Sam.

SPN 0589







Biggest “Ouch My Heart” Moment


Prisoner 2

-          While I know the instant reaction is Sam and Dean’s confrontation in “Brother’s Keeper”, I’m going with Dean’s words to Sam in “The Prisoner” when they salted and burned Charlie’s body.

-          Dean: The Mark isn't gonna kill me.
-          Sam: Maybe not, but... when it's done with you, you won't be you anymore. Dean you're all I got, so of course I was gonna fight for you, because that's what we do. Listen I had a shot.
Dean: Yeah you had a shot. Charlie's dead, nice shot.
Sam: You think I... you think I'm ever going to forgive myself for that?
-          Dean: You wanna know what I think? I think it should be you up there and not her. This thing with Cass and the book ends now. Shut it down before somebody else gets hurt, you understand me?


  Honorable mention, “Soul Survivor”

SamReachingLimit

“You notice I tried to get as far away from you as possible?  Away from your whining, your complaining.  I chose the King of Hell over you.  Maybe I was just…tired of babysitting you.  Or always having to yank your lame ass out of the fire, since…forever.  Or maybe, maybe it was the fact that my mother would still be alive if it wasn’t for you.  That your very existence sucked the life out of my life.”




Scene That Just Ruins My Day


“The Things They Carried”

normal SPN1015HD2404

The ending scene nonetheless! 

Sam:  I tried.  I did, I tried.  But I couldn’t save this one. 
Dean:  You know you can do everything right, and even still sometimes, the guy still dies. 

Gee, talk about peeing in someone’s cornflakes…





Best Monologue


“Girls, Girls, Girls”

SPN1007 2141

"I get it. That was your story. Look, man, I got one of those, too. Okay, but those stories that we tell to keep us going? Man, sometimes they blind us. They take us to dark places --the kind of place where I might beat the crap out of a good man just for the fun of it. The people who love me, they pulled me back from that edge.

Cole, once you touch that darkness... It never goes away. Now, the truth is... I'm past saving. I know how my story ends. It's at the edge of a blade or the barrel of a gun. So, the question is, is that gonna be today? That gonna be that gun?"

Thank you Mr. Berens for knowing where to get a fan girl right in the heart.  It was perfect.




Best Moment in an Episode That Made Me Scream Uncontrollably Like the Ecstatic Fan Girl That I am

“Book of the Damned”

BOD 16

"Did we just become best friends?"

Charlie and Castiel meet.  I swear I’ve written fan fiction about this moment.  It was every bit as good as I imagined. 




Best Teaser

"The Executioner’s Song"

ES 2

Tim Omundson knows how to make an entrance!  Memorable, powerful, creepy, and the unique camera angles didn't hurt either!           




Worst Teaser

"The Things They Carried"

normal SPN1015HD0046

  Sorry guys, I’ve always hated torture porn.




Episode That I liked That I wasn’t Expecting To


"Hibbing 911"

Hibbing 5

  I’m not saying the execution or script ended up being brilliant (it was quite slow actually), but this ended up being quite an inspired pairing.  Overall, a very interesting hour and both these ladies are pretty damned likeable together or apart.  Anything that triggers a spinoff talk with me (Wayward Daughters!) means it's left an impression. 




Most Overused Plot Device

Three words, Mark…of…Cain

GlowingMark

  Way to turn a cocky, fun, sexy, hard drinking champion of humanity into a whiny little b**** for a season and a half!  But it wasn’t just Dean.  Watching Sam hand wringing over Dean’s predicament for the most part was about of fun as watching paint dry.  Yeah, eventually Sam went really dark and pretty much ended the world to save his brother, but honestly, do we expect any less from the Winchesters?  Still, the dreaded MOC had about a half season worth of value at best. 




Best Inside Joke


"Fan Fiction"

27

Wait, is that a robot? 

          All of “Fan Fiction” was one big inside joke.  But my favorite part were to illusions to how the “first act,” aka seasons 1-5, aka the Kripke era, was considered stronger than the “shaky second act”, aka seasons 6-10.  Part of me wishes it did have robots and space.  On a side note, in one of my last interviews with Ben Edlund, he did confess he was still trying to figure out how to get Sam and Dean on a spaceship. 





Best (or Perhaps Worst) Use of Misplaced Optimism That Fell Apart an Episode Later

“The Hunter Games”

PowerfulForceIsYou

Sam: So, I’ve been thinking.  Cain still has the Mark, right? And he’s lived with it, for years he’s lived with it.  So yeah, the Mark is strong, but Dean maybe there’s a part of you that wants to give into it, and maybe you have to fight that, you know?  Maybe part of that powerful force has to be you.

Oh Brad and Eugenie.  Your failure to grasp Winchester continuity slays me. 

01




Plot Device That Should Be in All Episodes


"Brother's Keeper"

s10e23 243

-          Castiel and Crowley should just get the spinoff and have way more crazy adventures together.  There were far too few scenes like that this year. 

Crowley:  “Who summons anymore?  Couldn’t you call?” 
Castiel:  You’re not on my contacts list.




Best Comment to Trigger Hope and Fantasy Sequences With Fans

  “Book of the Damned”

BOD 5

Dean:  We’re due for a win, okay? Overdue. I’ll tell you another thing, if this actually does work, we’re gonna take some time off.
Sam: What, like a vacation?
Dean:  Mm-hmm. And I’m not talking just like a weekend in Vegas or sitting in some crap motel watching pay-per-porn. No, I’m talking about a beach. Drinking cervezas, go for a swim, mingle with the local wildlife. When was the last time either one of us was on a beach?
Sam:  Never.
Dean:  Sand between our toes, Sammy. Sand between our toes.

PLEASE MR. CARVER, PLEEEEEEAAAAAASE!!!!





Worst Shoutout to Something From a Prior Season We’d Rather Forget

“Black”

10.01 Crowley on Phone 0923

Crowley:  Your brother and I were beginning to wonder if you’d hit another dog.”

Ouch!  Sore subject among the fans Crowley.  Sore subject. 




Best Role Reversal From Past seasons

“The Werther Project” 


Dean:  I’m sorry I don’t always like to wait around for ya.  Especially with you looking at me like that all the time. 
Sam:  Like what? 
Dean:  Like that.  Like I’m some sort of a- a diseased killer puppy. 

1019 08801

Let’s go back to season four…

Sam:  You want to know why I've been lying to you, Dean? Because of crap like this.
Dean:  Like what?
Sam:  The way you talk to me, the way you look at me like I'm a freak!
Dean:  I do not.
Sam:  You know, or even worse, like I'm an idiot!  Like I don't know the difference between right and wrong!
