Yes, this is definitely delayed.  All the hoopla of Comic Con set the reveal of the results way back.  But hey, better late than never, right? Right???

The votes have been tallied, analyzed, and now they can be shared!  Thanks to all of you that voted and made your opinions known, both good, bad, and indifferent.  In the end, the power of collective minds generated some interesting results.  


So, without further delay, I present The WFB Supernatural Season 14 Fan Choice Award Results!

"Lebanon"

No, it was not a perfect episode.  For a 300th episode, given the high expectations, it did fall short.  But it was still hands down the best episode of a very weak season fourteen.  You can’t beat a Winchester family dinner, which was something we’ve been craving since the Pilot, which was some 300 episodes ago!  I enjoyed the sentiment and it really did feel good to see some closure finally to the Sam and John rift. 

The overall results:

Lebanon - 37%
Mint Condition - 19%
Byzantium - 17%
Moriah - 16%
Peace of Mind - 11%



Worst Episode in Supernatural Season 14

"The Spear"

Editor’s Choice

14 20 1337 standoff

"Moriah"

Don’t get me wrong, “The Spear” irked me to no end.  I hated female Michael, the attempt to recreate Die Hard fell very short, and dammit, Garth is still in the trunk!  But Moriah, that was the biggest “F*** You” to fans I have ever seen.  I’m still fuming.  This show was based on the foundation that the world is a s*** show, but two heroes carry on despite horrific circumstances because they know that what they do makes a difference.  Chuck and his temper tantrum wiped all of that out in one snap.  It was like the past fourteen years was useless.  They better get creative in season fifteen otherwise I’m going to have to pretend the show didn’t exist after season five. 

Overall results:

Moriah - 25%
The Spear - 16%
Jack in the Box - 13%
The Scar - 11%
Ouroboros - 10%
Unhuman Nature - 9%
Game Night - 9%
Gods and Monsters - 7%

The tearful family goodbye to John - “Lebanon” 

Oh sure, I adored the brotherly exchange in “Prophet and Loss”.  It was classic Sam and Dean.  But that scene just put a lump in my throat because it is a scene we’ve seen before.  The Winchester family goodbye after all the fangirlish excitement of finally seeing them together...yeah, waterworks.

14 20 1419 Frustrated Chuck

“Moriah” - God is evil? Sam and Dean never had free will? All their good deeds unraveled?

It’s interesting isn’t it, how the "Moriah" ending made both the best and worst results?  It goes to show just how polarizing it was.  To be honest, all the nominees were adequate choices.  But there’s nothing like unraveling 14 seasons of story in five minutes to annoy the most loyal fan. 

Overall results:

God is evil? Sam and Dean never had free will? All their good deeds unraveled? - "Moriah" - 43%
Michael just leaves Dean? It ends with Nick on a bloody rampage? - "Gods and Monsters" - 29%

The Winchester Family Dinner - “Lebanon”

Editor's Choice

SPN 1718

“Prophet and Loss” - Sam’s emotional plea (and a frustrated punch) to Dean to keep believing in them in front of Baby. 

The Winchester family dinner put a huge smile on my face.  But the brotherly scenes are the epitome of bonding, proving once again that it’s season freaking 14 and Jared and Jensen still bring the wickedly amazing chemistry to the table.   This one had impact to the season arc too, making it just a bit more important. 

Overall results:

Sam’s emotional plea (and a frustrated punch) to Dean to keep believing in them in front of Baby - "Prophet and Loss" - 50%
The Winchester Family Dinner - "Lebanon" - 22%
Jack and Dean’s road trip - "Unhuman Nature" - 12%
Dean and Pamela in Rocky’s Bar - "Nihilism" - 6%
Sam, Dean and Castiel (and Baby!) saying their goodbyes to Mary at the funeral pyre - "Absence" - 5%
Jack and Castiel’s talk about dying (it’s a rite of passage) while eating sugary cereal - "The Spear" - 5%




Best Quote in Supernatural Season 14

Winner

SPN 1725

“Lebanon”

Dean:  Yeah. I used to think that, too. But, uh... I mean, look, we've been through some tough times. There's no denying that. And for the longest time, I blamed Dad. I mean, hell, I blamed Mom, too, you know? I was angry. But say we could send Dad back knowing everything. Why stop there? Why not send him even further back and let some other poor sons of bitches save the world? But here's the problem. Who does that make us? Would we be better off? Well, maybe. But I got to be honest -- I don't know who that Dean Winchester is. And I'm good with who I am. I'm good with who you are. 'Cause our lives -- they're ours. And maybe I'm just too damn old to want to change that.

"You have one card today! But we'll find another tomorrow. But if you quit on us today, there won't be no tomorrow! You tell me, uh, you don't know what else to do. I don't either, Dean. Not yet. But what you're doing now, it's wrong! It's quitting! I mean l-look what just happened. Donatello never quit fighting. So we could help him because he never gave up. I believe in us, Dean. I believe in us. Why don't you believe in us, too?”

SPN 1751

"Game Night"

"You -- you always, always put -- You always put me first. Your whole life." 

Let me explain this choice.  I just love quotes that say so much with so little.  Yes, the whole death scene was a little contrived.  We figured a miracle cure was coming because it always does.  But here's Sam, knowing the lights are about to go out, and this is what comes to mind.  He's acknowledging everything his brother has done for him at a time where words are hard to say.  It's just a really beautiful moment, albeit way too short.

Pleasantville meets SPN - “Peace of Mind”

I love the sentiment of a simpler, better time.  I love that Sam was hurting enough from the loss of his team to fall into the spell of “Justin”.  I love that they managed to work some comedy gold out of it.  But most of all, I loved that Castiel got to play the hero for once and being an angel finally worked to his advantage.  All in all - a very enjoyable story.

Nick’s investigation into his family’s murder and his desire to be reunited with Lucifer, which came with useless killing spree. - Too many episodes

The worst plots, all of them, proved one thing.  20 episodes is still too many hours to sustain a strong story for this show.  Even with three less episodes this season, the filler was just painful.  I mean really, how did an ordinary guy like Nick become so super human and kill so many people so easily without landing on the most wanted list? There are better ways to show someone completely unhinged than having him kill everyone he meets.  

Overall results:

Nick’s investigation into his family’s murder and his desire to be reunited with Lucifer, which came with useless killing spree. - Too many episodes - 65%
Dark Kaia and the Spear - Multiple episodes - 12%

Just about all of season 14. 

Hee, this one was a close one.  So many good…I mean bad choices.  To be honest, I was not a fan of the season, so the choice was easy for me.  However, if I was forced to pick one of the options that wasn’t the catch all, I would go with the winner.  I mean come on, how in the world did the Dean!Michael arc, then Jack going off the rails just abruptly in one episode go to Chuck was evil?  I did the math, I drew the graphs, and the answer is…NO.  It was just pulled out of their asses. 

Overall Results:

Abandoning every arc, story line, and foreshadowing in season 14(and earlier) just so they could abruptly go with Chuck is evil and it's the end - 19%

“God Was Never on Your Side” - Motorhead, “Moriah”

So yeah, I didn’t like the plot twist in the end of the season, but that ending scene, Jack in the empty, the dead rising from Hell and surrounding Sam, Dean and Castiel while this song thunders in the background, it was pretty wicked from a sound and vision perspective.  The music was definitely the key to its success.

Overall results:

"God Was Never On Your Side" - Motorhead - "Moriah" - 46% 
"Let it Ride" - Bachman Turner Overdrive - "Unhuman Nature" - 17%
