I'm back with four more episode titles from my trusty Tupperware container and have put my thoughts on each. What are your thoughts on the following episodes? Is it a scene, a moment, a line or song? And why? It is your favourite or is it the emotional impact it has on you? Maybe it simply makes you laugh or hide under the covers.
"Phantom Traveler" – For this episode, the first thing that comes to mind is when Sam and Dean are on the plane and Dean starts getting jumpy over the turbulence. Sam gets serious and tells Dean he needs to calm down.
Dean: Come on, that can’t be normal.
Sam: Hey, hey. It’s just a little turbulence.
Dean: Sam, this plane is going to crash, ok? So quit treating me like I’m frigging four.
Sam: You need to calm down.
Dean: Well, I’m sorry. I can’t.
Sam: Yes, you can.
Dean: Dude, stow the touchy-feely, self-help yoga crap, it’s not helping.
Sam: Dean, you’re panicking and wide open to demonic possession so you need to calm yourself down, right now.
However, I do have to give honourable mentions for the scene where Sam finds out that Dean has a problem with flying.
Sam: Are you ok?
Dean: No, not really.
Sam: What? What’s wrong?
Dean: Wel,l I kind of have this problem with ummm.
Dean: It’s never really been an issue until now.
Sam: You’re joking, right?
Dean: Do I look like I’m joking? Why do you think I drive everywhere, Sam?
Sam: Alright, I’ll go.
Sam: I’ll do this one on my own.
Dean: Are you nuts? You said it yourself this plane is going to crash.
Sam: Look, Dean, we can do this together. I can do this one by myself. I’m not seeing a third option here.
Dean: Come on! Really? Man!
"Devil’s Trap" – I have to go with the scene where the boys and John are hiding out in an old cabin after rescuing John. I love the moment when Dean starts to realize that John is not John and turns the gun on him. And how Sam takes Dean side.
John: Dean, you got the gun?
John: Give it to me.
Dean (taking the Colt out of his jeans): Dad, Sam tried to shoot the demon in Salvation. It disappeared.
John: This is me. I won’t miss. Now, the gun, hurry.
Dean hesitates and looks down at the gun.
John: Son, please.
Dean starts to back up a few steps.
John: Give me the gun. What are you doing, Dean?
Dean: He’d be furious.
Dean: That I wasted a bullet. He wouldn’t be proud of me, he’d tear me a new one.
John just looks at him as Dean raises the gun, pointing it at him and cocking it.
Dean: You’re not my Dad.
John: Dean, it’s me.
Dean: I know my Dad better than anyone. And you ain’t him.
John: What the hell’s gotten into you?
Dean: I could ask you the same thing. Stay back.
Sam comes into the room and is shocked to see Dean pointing the gun at John.
Sam: Dean? What the hell’s going on?
John: Your brother’s lost his mind.
Dean: He’s not Dad.
Dean: I think he’s possessed. I think he’s been possessed since we rescued him
John: Don’t listen to him, Sammy.
Sam: Dean, how do you know?
Dean (fighting back tears): He’s .... he’s different.
John: You know, we don’t have time for this. Sam, you wanna kill this demon, you’ve gotta trust me.
Sam looks back and forth between his father and brother. Dean glances at him, but doesn’t say anything else to convince him.
Sam looks back and forth.
Sam: No. No. (he moves over to stand by his brother’s side)
"The Devil You Know" – I have two moments with this episode. The first one is when Crowley informs the brothers he knows where Pestilence's right-hand man is but informs Sam he can’t go with them, only Dean.
The facial expression Sam makes from being smug to shock and then hurt as he’s being told he can’t go and then Dean agreeing with Crowley. It was both comical and sad.
Crowley: Sam, keep the home fires burning.
Dean: What are you talking about?
Crowley: Sam’s not coming.
Sam: Why the hell not?
Crowley: Because I don’t like you. I don’t trust you. And, oh, yes, you keep trying to kill me!
Sam: There is no damn way. This is not gonna happen.
Crowley: I’m not asking you, am I? Because you’re not invited. I’m asking you (points to Dean) what’s it gonna be?
Sam looks at Dean. Dean stays silent. Sam looks back at Crowley grinning.
Crowley: Gentlemen, enjoy your last few sunsets.
Crowley starts to leave.
Dean: Wait. I’ll go. (Dean turns to Sam) What can I say? I believe the guy.
The second moment is when the Hellhounds follow Crowley and Dean back to the house and Crowley takes off but comes back with his own Hellhound.
The way he pats the invisible hellhound on the head and comments that he’s much bigger had me giggling.
"Live Free or Twi-Hard" – Again, I have two moments I have to go with.
First one is Dean killing all the vampires in the nest.
He was not only deadly and badass, but man, he was HOT!
The second moment was Sam stopping himself from helping Dean from being bitten by the vampire.
When he stopped and gave that evil grin, I have to say I went into complete meltdown over that scene.
I was yelling at the TV “What are you doing? What the hell is wrong with you? Save your brother!”
And because of this episode, until it was confirmed that Sam was soulless, I refused to believe this was Sam! There had to be some supernatural entity causing this. He was either possessed or a shape shifter or something! What ever it was, it was not our Sam!
