Welcome back to the "Top Six Favourite Episodes" series, this time for Season Two. These are still to this day, the nearest and dearest to my heart, my comfort episodes, the ones I go to when I need a laugh or a cry or the comfort of an old friend.  

Before you read my list, make your own list of season 2 favorites! It will be fun to compare your unbiased choices to mine (before you are influenced by my memories or picks) .  Whether you're joining Nightsky and The WFB in the #SPNSummer2019 Rewatch, or rewatching at your own pace this hiatus, these episodes should be fresh in your mind!

Save your list then, because you'll need it for a HUGE Hiatus challenge that The WFB will be sharing with you very soon! Nightsky reveals her Top 6 season 2 favorites after mine, so you'll have two WFB staff lists as a comparison (and as a hint of what's to come!)! If you missed my Season 1 Favorites, you can go back to the beginning and start there!

So without further ado, here's my list of Season Two Favourites! The list is by order of appearance only, as they all are equal in their importance to me.

FBI 

We get to see the brothers in sync as they show their badges.     

Lasereyes

We meet Ronald who was a true believer in 'Aliens and Conspiracy Theories', fiving us 'laser eyes' and 'mandroids'.

I loved the brothers' reaction to Ronald's theories.

This was also the introduction to FBI Agent Victor Henriksen.      

Shapeshifterskin

Once again we get treated to the remains of a shifter's gooey skin.

The ending was epic. It starts with the song "Renegade" by Styx, while Sam and Dean escape wearing SWAT team uniforms....       

Nightshifterend

Once they are safely in 'Baby', Dean exclaims "We are so screwed."      


4)Tall Tales

A very steamy love scene with Sam and Madison.

Madisonasks

so Madison pleads to Sam to kill her.  "I don't want to die, but I can't live like this. Save me."

The final scene was heart wrenching with an emotionally devastated Sam fulfilling Madison's request,

I loved the camera shot of the beautiful sunrise reflecting on the window.

Deaneats

I loved Dean's reaction to eating one of his mother's sandwiches. It was so endearing.          

Deanmows

And watching the joy he had mowing the lawn. (I always found it amusing that the lawn mower never had a blade in it.)                   

JohnWinchestergrave

However, there were down sides to this alternate reality. John did pass away and Dean's talk to his dad had me tearing up.       

TenseSam

The other down side was the brothers' relationship was almost nonexistent.  Sam not only didn't idolize his brother, he didn't like him that much either.                  

Noplacelikehome

However, Dean was able to escape his mind control to find the real Sam there to save him.
