The Boys Are Back in Town

(Probably Time To Flee)

EPISODE TWENTY-ONE:

Loss. Episode twenty-one is typically one of loss, grief and even death. The boys are in a perilous situation, making desperate choices and, classically at the worst moment before the final boss battle, they are struck with a major blow that leaves them shaken.

Episode twenty-one is not about smiles, hugs and humour. Over the years we’ve said goodbye to favourite characters, we’ve watched brutal exchanges between Sam and Dean and seen devastating realizations come over our boys at the worst moments. As heartbreaking as these moments have been – these have been some of the best episodes too. What is the most impactful episode or scene in the last thirteen years? Does Dean yelling Sam’s name in AHBL: Part One still stand out for you as number one? Does your heart race during Dean’s battle with Abaddon – the intensity and darkness in those moments? Charlie’s sacrifice for her boys still makes me tearful. How about you?
