I pulled out four more episode titles and put my thoughts on each. What are your thoughts on the following episodes? Is it a scene, a moment, a line or song? And why? It is your favourite or is it the emotional impact it has on you? Maybe it simply makes you laugh or hide under the covers.
In My Time Of Dying
This is another one high on my list of favourites. There were so many scenes that stand out in this one it was hard to choose. Sam trying to convince Bobby not to do anything to the Impala, that Dean will want to fix it when he gets better "even if there is one working part." John's final talk with Dean. "I am so proud of you." The scene where Sam finds John lying dead on the floor. The slow motion of the coffee cup landing upwards was fantastic. Sam pleading to an unconscious Dean not to die. "You can't leave me with Dad, we will kill each other...Just when we were starting to be brothers again."
However the scene I going to have to go with is when Sam brings out the Ouiji board. Seeing the two brothers sitting on the floor talking together through the board just made me love them all the more. I just really loved that moment between the two. This scene also now makes me think of Ardeospina's brilliant and funny Motivational Poster "Bring Me Pie".
The scene I loved the most was Sam and Dean's conversation at the end of the episode while in the car.
Sam: You can't run from this and you can't protect me.
Dean: I can try.
Sam: Thanks for that. Look Dean I'm going to keep on"¦whatever's coming I'm taking it head on. So if you really want to watch my back well I guess you're going to have to stick around.
I miss the Bitch/Jerk moments. It was their way to express their love for each other and I really feel they both need to hear that from each other again.
The Monster at the End of the Book
I loved this episode it had so many great moments that stood out. The Laundromat scene with Dean reading from the pages that Chuck had written "'I'm sitting in a laundromat reading about myself sitting in a laundromat reading about myself. My head hurts." "Sam turned his back on Dean, his face brooding and pensive. I don't know how he's doing it but he's doing it. I can't see your face but those are definitely your brooding and pensive shoulders. You just thought I was a dick." Sam turns to Dean, "Guy's good."
And at the "Kripke's Hollow Diner" where they decide to do "opposite day," trying not to fight and through gritted teeth. "It frustrates me when..." But I'm going to have to go with the conversation between Sam and Chuck, discussing the demon blood and where the weight of the apocalypse lies. It was such a compelling scene. You could see the unease and tension Sam was feeling when he first asked Chuck if he knew about the demon blood. When Chuck admitted he had and expressed disapproval of these events Sam seemed so burdened but also relieved to be able to talk to someone about it.
Hammer Of The Gods
For this episode I would have to go with Gabriel's last stand against his brother Lucifer. After all those years of tormenting the brothers here he was defending and protecting them. "I'm loyal. To them...to people, Lucifer. People, Dad was right, they are better than us, they're flawed. But a lot of them try, to do better, to forgive, I've been riding the pine for a long time but I'm in the game now. And I'm not on your side or Michael's. I'm on theirs." I was so proud of Gabriel and totally heartbroken that he was killed.
