I pulled out four more episode titles from my trusty Tupperware container 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.
I liked this episode with the "Sixth Sense" shout out, where Molly is oblivious to the fact that she has passed on. The scene that stands out for me is when she finds out the truth from a sympathetic Sam (I loved the connection between her and Sam) that she had died in the car accident fifteen years earlier and that her husband, David, had survived but has moved on with his life. It was kind of sad to watch Molly hesitantly walking into the light, wanting so much to be with David but having to accept her own destiny.
With this episode, it was hard to pick out just one moment or scene. There are two situations that stayed and haunted me.
First was Dean's realization of just how bad things had gotten with Sam as he watched in horror as his brother drank the demon's blood. How quiet and despondent he was during the car ride as Sam tried so hard to get some reaction out of Dean.
Sam: "All right, let's hear it."
Sam: "Drop the bomb, man! You saw what I did. Come on, stop the car, take a swing."
Dean: "I'm not gonna take a swing."
Sam: "Then scream! Chew me out!"
Dean: "I'm not mad, Sam."
Sam: "Come on. You're not mad?"
Sam: "Right! Look, at least let me explain myself."
Dean: "Don't! I don't care!"
Sam: "You don't care."
Dean: "What do you want me to say? That I'm disappointed? Yeah, I am, but mostly I'm just tired, man. I'm done. I am just done."
Secondly is Jimmy's story. All he wanted to do was honour his faith in God by saying "Yes" to Castiel, and he lost everything, including his wife and daughter.
To watch him plead with Castiel to take him instead of his daughter as he lay dying on the warehouse floor was so heart-wrenching.
Claire/Cass: "Of course we keep our promises. Of course you have our gratitude. You served us well. Your work is done. It's time to go home now. Your real home. You'll rest forever in the fields of the Lord. Rest now, Jimmy."
Jimmy: " No! Claire?"
Claire/Cass: "She's with me now. She's chosen. It's in her blood, as it was in yours."
Jimmy: "Please! Castiel! Me! Just take me. Take me Please!"
Claire/Cass: "I want to make sure you understand. You won't die or age. If this last year was painful for you, picture a hundred, a thousand more like it."
Jimmy: " It doesn't matter. You take me. Just take me!"
Claire/Cass: "As you wish."
"The Real Ghostbusters"
For this episode, I have two scenes that I favoured the most; both just happen to be at the end of the episode.
One is where Sam is talking to Chuck about him publishing further "Supernatural" Books.
Sam: "Chuck, if you really want to publish more books, I guess that's okay with us."
Chuck: "Wow! Really?"
Sam: "No! Not really. We have guns, and we'll find you."
Chuck: "Okay, okay. No more books."
I got such a kick out of Sam in that scene.
The other was when Dean is saying goodbye to Demian and Barnes.
Demian: "You're wrong, you know."
Demian: "About "Supernatural!" No offense, but I'm not sure you get what the stories are about."
Dean: "Is that so?"
Demian: "All right, look, in real life, he sells stereo equipment. I fix copiers. Our lives suck. But to be Sam and Dean! To wake up every morning and save the world, to have a brother who would die for you. Well, who wouldn't want that?"
Dean: "Maybe you've got a point."
For Dean to have someone point out that his life and job was important and made a difference was something he really needed to hear.
For this episode, the scene that stands out for me was after the brothers witness the hanging and the man in front of them turns and then comments on Dean's serape; "Nice blanket." The hurt and pouty (and adorable) face Dean made as he removed the serape, I just wanted to hug the poor boy.
It was kind of sad to see everything Dean idolized and fantasized about the Western era (The Clint Eastward clothing, the sexy saloon maids, being part of a posse, the whiskey) slowly be deflated one by one.
