Elle2's Season 5 Wrap Up:
Hey, better late than never, right? We're about eight weeks into Hellatus with only a few more weeks to go until Season 6 begins"¦okay, okay, a few more weeks beyond what we initially had hoped for but at least they started shooting last week and with the extra two weeks of Hellatus we here at The Winchester Family Business will just have to write more articles, design more inspirational posters, develop more puzzles, conduct more polls and link more videos.
I've been doing a lot of meaty articles (for me anyway) so it's time to change it up a bit and knock out a pure spur-of-the-moment article that gives a quick look at some of my favorite and some not so favorite moments of Season 5.
These are in no particular order, just typed 'em as they came to me. Hope you enjoy this look back at Season 5:
Best Reveal: Trickster = Gabriel - loved it, what a tie-in for the character that has charmed us in Tall Tales and mystified us in Mystery Spot.
Worst death(s): Ellen and Jo
Best returning character: Ash - I'd forgotten how much I missed him but when he appeared it was such a moment of joy. ASH!!!!
Best Castiel lines: Hmm, hard to choose:
"God's not on any flatbread."
"They're not incontinent."
"I found a liquor store"¦and I drank it!"
So much to choose from - hopefully I'll have something about Castiel later on this Hellatus.
Best running joke this season: Castiel and the cell phone - bwah!!!!
Best Bobby moment: "I ain't a hunter anymore!" Oh, the pain!
Best Sam moment:
Takes charge in Point of No Return.
Outplays Patrick the witch at poker.
Takes back the reins from Lucifer, "It's going to be okay, Dean, I've got him."
Best Dean moment:
Stays with Sam no matter the beating, "I'm here, Sam, and I'm not going to leave you."
The wink in Point of No Return
Tells Sam it's not up to him to 'let' him do anything.
Hell Yeah! Moment:
Zachariah dies - sorry, Zach (and especially Kurt Fuller who was brilliant in this role) I loved to hate you and will miss you but "Hell, YEAH!"
Anna is smoked in The Song Remains the Same
Great camera shots:
Shovels thrust into the grave only to shift to an above the scene shot in Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid
Rapid camera zoom on Dean and 90 degree turn to see Karen in Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid
Pull back from Lisa's dining room table to exterior of house and then drop down onto Sam standing in shadows, Swan Song
Fallen Idols - just messing with you! Changing Channels!
Episode that provoked tears so much so that I could not watch it for almost five weeks:
Mark Pellegrino (Lucifer)
Julian Richings (Death)
Titus Welliver (War)
Matt Frewer (Pestilence)
James Otis (Famine)
Swap Meat - at least we now know why thanks to the boys' reveal at the Rising Con in Barcelona
