The Boys Are Back in Town

(Probably Time To Flee)

EPISODE TWENTY-TWO:

For the first half of the series, episode twenty-two was a finale: it packed a punch, resolved season long plots and opened paths for the next season to pursue. In later years, episode twenty-two was the first installment of a two-part finale, the set up to the pay off on an even grander scale. In either case, it comes with emotional blows, action and revelations that were an entire season in the making.

Often these are  some of the best-known moments in Supernatural history:

No matter which episode I look at, almost every season has a phenomenal scene, exchange or speech in episode twenty-two. Of course, we all remember Dean’s monologue to Sam’s body in AHBL2 and the infamous moments in Swan Song between the brothers. Yet nothing gets me quite like the controlled execution of the Styne family in The Prisoner. What stands above the rest for you?
