Season Four Highlights/Lowlights and other stuff:
 
Just ‘cause I felt like dabbling in the fun of this, I present you a quick, random, somewhat thought out at other times purely emotional response to season four. 
 
In no way is this completely encompassing of the entire season (I think that’s three words to say the same thing – you get the point, right?)
 
Worst Ruby scene…
 
Lazarus Rising:  in the motel room, other than hyping the fandom, being skimpily clad and given a completely silly name, Kristie, it made no sense…
 
How to improve it: clothe her, then have Sam call her Kristie and she respond, Katie …that would have been funny.
 
Best Ruby scene…
 
Lucifer Rising: Die Demon Die!!!!!!
 
 
Best use of the word douche….
 
Lazarus Rising: â€œI told you to take care of her, not douche her up.” Hah!!!!
 
Runner up…
 
It’s a Terrible Life: â€œThose douchenozzels the Winchesters”…cool.
 
Best Castiel entrance…
 
Lazarus Rising:  Granted all he does is walk in the door, but still he does it with style.
 
Honorable mention
 
Death Takes a Holiday: It had been five episodes since he’d been seen, when he appeared, I actually sighed thinking…I’d missed you, Cas. Also, he looked so pleased with himself having captured Alastair.

These next groups I found too hard to pick a best/worst or a best/honorable mention so I just listed them (in the order they came to mind as I wrote this). Feel free to let me know your favorite from what I’ve included or by all means add to the list…or you can pass; it’s your Hellatus too, pass the time as you choose.  I know some of you just lurk, feel free to lurk away but it is safe here; Alice has a lockdown against any vampires or werewolves so you won’t get hurt…still no zombie alligators to worry about either.
 
Saddest Sam moment…
 
  • Sam lying to the ghost kid in Death Takes A Holiday
  • Drunk Sam vs. the Cross Road Demon in I Know What You Did Last Summer
  • Sam as Pamela is dying and she reveals…I know what you did to that demon, Death Takes a Holiday
  • Sam hallucinating Dean calling him a monster in When the Levee Breaks
  • Sam hearing the fake phone message from Dean in Lucifer Rising [chokes up]
 
Best Dean reveals all season…
 
  • Dean was yanked from hell by an angel
  • Dean was in hell for 40 years
  • Dean tortured people, and liked it
  • Dean broke the first seal
  • Dean has been rehymenated – chuckle/snort
(Sorta honorable mention…Dean gets his memories back from IMTOD, courtesy of Tessa)
 
Best Sam reveals…
 
  • Sam had sex with a corpse possessed by a demon
  • Sam drinks demon blood
  • Sam can con tough guys at pool [hee]
  • Sam was jealous of Adam and wanted to mold him into a fighter
  • Sam likes emo music???? [really?]
 
(Sam breaking the final seal doesn’t make it for me because I saw it coming after it was revealed that Dean broke the first one and I added to it the idea of literary symmetry from Monster at the End of This Book)
 
Best Castiel lines…
 
  • You should show me some respect.
  • Uriel is the funniest angel in the garrison, ask anyone.
  • We’re making this up as we go.
 
Best bro moments…
 
  • Lazarus Rising…they hugged!!
  • Wishing Well…are we going to shoot this teddy bear?
  • Heaven and Hell…Sam willing to kill angels to protect Dean
  • Jump the Shark…rock, paper, scissors [buyah!!!]
  • On the Head of a Pin…bedside at the hospital and then…“Miracle, NOW!”
  • Lucifer Rising…two hands fisted in jackets…and Sam grabs Dean’s a second time…fade to …white?
 
Grossest scenes of the season…
 
  • Metamorphosis…Jack eating raw ground beef
  • Metamorphosis…Jack after eating – uh, Travis
  • It’s the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester…Impala egged – wrong, wrong, wrong
  • Family Remains…girl eats rat
  • After School Special…kid’s hand in blender..icky
  • The Rapture…Sam drinks demon blood in middle of fight, his face is reminiscent of Jack from Metamorphosis
 
Best Bobby moments…
 
  • Lazarus Rising…gives Dean a face full of holy water after everything else failed
  • Are You There, God; It’s Me, Dean Winchester…“Bobby, you are awesome!” a panic room and massive weaponry
  • Sex and Violence…phones, phones and more phones
  • When the Levee Breaks…“Suck dirt and die, Rufus!” [tee]
  • When the Levee Breaks…“We are trying to help you, boy.” [tears]
  • Lucifer Rising…“Do us all a favor, don’t be him.” [wow]
  • [extra credit…who called Dean ‘princess’ first and in what episode? – we have prizes…*right, Alice, we have prizes here somewhere, don’t we?*
 
Best guest actors… soooo many to choose from so I just started writing.
 
  • Lazarus Rising…Tracie Dinwiddie (also in Heaven and Hell and DTAH)
  • In the Beginning…Amy Gumenick – very believable younger Mary Winchester
  • In the Beginning…Mitch Pileggi – just inspired
  • It’s the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester…Robert Wisdom (also in IKWYDLS, HAH, OTHOAP)
  • I Know What You Did Last Summer…Mark Rolston (also in IKWYDLS)
  • Death Takes a Holiday…Christopher Heyerdahl (also in OTHOAP and WTLB)
  • Criss Angel is a Douche Bag…Barry Bostwick
  • Criss Angel is a Douche Bag…John Rubenstein
  • Criss Angel is a Douche Bag…Richard Libertini
  • It’s a Terrible Life…Kurt Fuller (also in MATEOTB and Lucifer Rising)
 
Lest you think I’m not a Ted Raimi fan, I so am. But, similar to the excellent Billy Drago who was lost behind his makeup (at least that’s my first and second opinion on that episode, shame too as Billy Drago is superb) I found Ted Raimi’s character lost in the premise. Audrey was so cute and not over the top, the teddy bear was hysterical and Dean’s tragic memories rising to the fore simply took too much away from Ted Raimi’s underdeveloped and underutilized character. 
 
It’s really a shame for Ted Raimi is superb, while his character is forgettable, he is not; having him come on the show illuminates how much of a character-driven show this is. Look at the above list, many greats come here; they know a good thing.
 
Most jaw-dropping, whoa I did not see that coming moments of the season…that were really, really, really cool (and sometimes gross):
 
  • Lazarus Rising…“I’m an angel of the Lord…we have work for you.”
  • In the Beginning…Mary was a hunter, so cool.
  • Yellow Fever…Dean was in hell for forty years
  • I Know What You Did Last Summer…Sam slept with corpso-Ruby (yeah, that one is gross)
  • Wishful Thinking…six-foot tall teddy bears DO work in the Supernatural series
  • On the Head of a Pin…Dean broke the first seal
  • On the Head of a Pin…Sam drinks demon blood
  • Jump the Shark…John had another child, raised him normally – sorta – [and the storyline worked really well]
  • Monster at the End of This Book…“I am the prophet, Chuck!”
  • Lucifer Rising…Sam broke the final seal…now both brothers share the blame equally for the apocalypse…way cool.
 
 
Coolest shots…
 
  • Lazarus Rising…Dean’s hand coming through the earth
  • Lazarus Rising…Castiel’s wings are revealed
  • On the Head of a Pin…dead angel’s wings are backlit on the pavement from above
  • On the Head of a Pin…Sam’s eyes grow blacker and blacker with each pass of the wiper blades
  • Jump The Shark…bullet hole looking back at Sam and Adam
 
Best episode without the Impala in it: [Everyone, this is where you MUST make your opinions heard – even in our little corner of the Supernatural fandom]. I will list the four choices (yes, there are four choices for Season 4) and we really, really, really need you to voice your opinion in the comment section. Even if you just lurk, even if you want to remain anonymous, click and reply – call yourself anonymous, it’s okay [everyone has done it] but make your opinion known.
 
Here are the choices:
 
  • Criss Angel is a Douche Bag
  • It’s A Terrible Life
  • Lucifer Rising
  • None, no Impala in an episode of Supernatural is just wrong, and we won’t stand for it, Mr. Kripke!
 
Scariest Rumors for Season Four:
 
  • Jensen is not coming back because Chad Michael Murray is taking over
  • Ruby is a love interest for Sam
  • Ghost bees [too funny]
  • A third Winchester brother is to be introduced
  • Bobby might die
 
So that’s it in a nutshell, actually a quick hour spent at the computer. Season four highlights, lowlights, best, worst, honorable mentions, there’s-just-too-many-to-choose-from-so-I’ll-just-list-them-and-let-you-read and others for Season four.
 
Let me know your best and worst, faves and anything else you like. And don’t forget…let your voice be heard, the Impala needs us!
 
Until I get something else done…thanks for reading.
