Welcome back to "Top Six Favourites Episodes", this time for season seven. 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 7 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 7 favourites after mine, so you'll have two WFB staff lists as a comparison!

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

Those are my top favourites for season seven! As promised, here are Nightsky's "Top 6 Favourite Episodes" for season seven, in order of preference:

  1.  "The Born Again Identity"
  2.  "Time After Time"
  3.  "Death's Door"
  4.  "Reading is Fundamental"
  5.  "Meet the New Boss"
  6.  "The Girl with the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo"

Nightsky: This is the first season where my rewatch significantly shuffled the order of my favorites from how I remembered episodes when I did my top 100 rankings. "Hello, Cruel World" was originally on my list because I love the Sam and Dean parts but am truly annoyed by the Leviathan parts, so it got bumped off the list. I had totally missed "Meet the New Boss" originally but there was so much to love that it beat out the season finale and made the top 6 for the season. "Survival of the Fittest is #7 now.
 

Now it's your turn!  Which episodes make your top 6? What surprised you, either by inclusion or exclusion, from my or Nightsky's lists? Make your lists now, if you didn't before you read our favorites. You're going to need them for WFB's Ultimate Top 100 Hiatus Challenge!
