Welcome back to "Top Six Favourites Episodes", this time for season four. 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 4 favourites! It will be fun to compare your unbiased choices (before you are unduly influenced by my memories or picks) to mine.  If you're joining Nightsky and The WFB in the #SPNSummer2019 Rewatch, or rewatching at your own pace this hiatus, the episodes should be fresh in your mind! Save your list then, because you'll need it for TOP 100 Episode challenge that The Winchester Family Business is running all hiatus! Nightsky reveals her Top 6 season 4 favourites after mine, so you'll have two WFB staff lists as a comparison!

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