“Bar None”, the sixth installment in Walker’s first season, continued the series’ positive trend of each episode improving over the last. Focusing primarily on character exploration and family dynamics, the duo writing team of Casey Fisher & Paula Sabbaga delivered a story with nuanced emotions and multi-layered intrigue. The last few minutes of the episode then stepped up the game with shocking revelations which fleshed out a seasonal arc that is far more interesting than the simplistic case-of-the-week crimes that had taken up valuable screen time in the show’s first few episodes.
I’ll be honest, “Carry On” would probably take a good chunk of these awards if I let it. In compiling these awards, I took the mentality that if there was another acceptable alternative to “Carry On” I would use it. As you’ll notice though, there were a few where it was impossible to not choose that epic episode. But there were plenty of categories that earned an acknowledgement from yours truly for the season as a whole, good, bad, and ugly. And with season 15, there was definitely some ugly. There was also however some real pretty, and the first award proves it!
So now I present to you, The WFB Supernatural Season 15 Editor’s Choice Awards!
Lots and lots of Sam and Dean! That’s the best part of Keith R.A. DeCandido’s Supernatural tie-in novel, Nevermore. It has other things going for it as well, which I’ll get into later, but my number one criteria for enjoying a Supernatural story is spending more time with the Winchester brothers than with any other characters. Nevermore passes that test with flying colors!
So yeah, you knew that they were eventually going to get back to the whole Dean guilt over John thing, weren’t you? “Crossroad Blues” did so in quite a spectacular way. It introduced some very vital lore in the show’s history while digging that knife deep into Dean Winchester’s very fragile psyche, setting him up for some future really bad mistakes. Fun times!
