Most Tear-Jerking Moment

That would be the entire finale for me from beginning to end. Luckily I have access to free psychotherapy (Thanks Jas!). 
However, if I had to pick one particular scene, no question it's the scene in the hardware store in "Abandon All Hope." Jo's insides have been shredded by a hell hound and without saying it they know its only a matter of time.  So who's taking this inevitable demise the worst?  Dean.  We see a vulnerable side of him that's we've never witnessed in any other episode.  He's especially ripping our inside to shreds when he talks to Bobby over the radio, the reality hitting him a bit too hard.  Bobby talks him back, but the loss still manages to sting long after Ellen and Jo sacrifice themselves so Sam and Dean can escape and try to kill Lucifer.  His tender kiss and embrace goodbye to Jo positively reduces all of us into puddles of tears.

It's not just Dean though.  Ellen is distraught yet brave through most of it, but as Jo slips away in her arms just seconds before the hellhounds hit, she rightfully breaks down.  There's no worse experience for a mother than to lose a child, even if it was only for a minute.  What a tragic end for her.  Yep, I'm still weepy.  I'm glad Phil Sgriccia revealed that this scene made Eric Kripke cry.  It feels good to know he suffered with the rest of us.

What can I say, Alice, this made me laugh, tear up a little (I've trained to have a grip these days... not wanting to be reduced to a teary puddle all the time when being reminded of the emotional moments in our show), and reminded me ever again of the fun I have with Supernatural.

Some of the pictures (the goofy Misha or Jared at the premiere) I haven't seen before, thanks for that!

As for the free psychotherapy - anytime, dear! Anytime... :-)

By the way: The changes on our site here look great! Did I thank you and Jen for that?

Love Jas

Speaking of orange underwear, that picture was on Misha's twitter : http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f170/erikavillani/mishaandJIB1giftsfromfans.jpg

Awesome, awesome season 5 awards, Alice! Those were so much fun to go through. I hope you had just as much fun making them.

I still can't look at those screencaps from Abandon All Hope without crying.

LOVED that the Impala got to be KITT & that Sam was her voice.

Thanks for doing these, Alice!

Hi Alice
Once again loved the list.
To this day I still can’t bring myself to re-watch Abandon All Hope. That one killed me.
The ‘Don’t get a Winchester Angry’…I thought Sam could get pretty scary when mad but Dean in this…all I can say is YIKES! I hope they have Sam and Dean meet up with those idiots in season 6.
And Yeah what was the purpose of little Jesse, maybe they plan to have him return in season 6.
Anyways thanks Alice, these were fun.

This was great Alice.

I went from laughing at the hairy palm to tears popping out of my eyes for Dean and Jo in about 30 seconds.

Sam as the car and "I say jackpot" was hilarious.

So much fun!

Oh Alice, I *love* you.

Thanks for these awards, they made my week, heck my whole summer :D

Heartbreaking some, but funny and hilarious mostly, a nice way to think back at this season.

And I agree, that behind the scene story is the best of the best of the best :-)

Wow...didn't realize there was a part three. Loved your picks. The last one of a smiling Dean, at the end of 'Real Ghost Busters', I think was the only epsiode with a happy ending this season. I Really hope they don't do that next year. Need for fun stuff!

And this Supernatural season award goes to... Smallville??? :lol: :lol: :lol: Did I mention I love the season awards?

I wonder if just being a vessel is enough to protect your eyes from burning out... Maybe it's not just "your" angel you can look at... still doesn't explain the "only an angel can kill an angel" thing, though. I read more into that scene too.

JP might be trying to provoke the fashion police, but as for Sam Winchester, his ass-kicking prowess is such that he can wear any damn shirt he likes, as evidenced by numerous appearances in the Paisley Peril.

Viewer noms? Cool! I nominate "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" for the Eric Kripke Special Award for Gratuitous Gleeful Gore.
