10. The Usual Suspects
Why it's on the list: This could be personal bias, but this is one of my all time favorite episodes. I really don't know why, but the writing and dialogue through the entire episode was sharp, it was very entertaining from the first second and this is the first episode that showed Sam and Dean working totally together even though they were in separate locations the entire time. I still snicker over both of them in separate rooms calling the same public defender "Matlock." I loved Linda Blair as the cop Diana Ballard who ended up being far more open minded than her crooked partner/lover. The MOTW story was really awesome as well.
Favorite Scene: Even though I drooled over almost every Sam moment in this episode, it was Dean's fake confession that struck me the most. "My name is Dean Winchester. I'm an Aquarius. I enjoy sunsets, long walks on the beach, and frisky women. And I did not kill anyone. But I know who did. Or rather what did. Of course it can't be for sure, because our investigation was interrupted. But our working theory was that we're looking for some kind of vengeful spirit."
