I've been thinking of a couple different post ideas. One complicated one I want to do is a poll/tournament knock out style involving all of the secondary characters in SPN that have been killed off to determine a favorite (this is in honor of Charlie's unneeded demise.) I was thinking have it be seeded where the more popular characters face the lesser popular in the first round, and so on...I dont know, still working out the kinks of that, something to do during the break....ANYWAY
With Season 10 in the books, I believe it is time to add it to everyone's list of SPN's Top Ten Season Finales. Order will be best, descending to worst.
1.) Season 2 (AHBL2)
This season finale holds a soft spot for me, Dean's complete anguish at seeing his brother dead (for the first time) will always stay with me
2.) Season 5 (Swan Song)
I am very happy SPN went on, but in my eyes this was always the culmination of the journey we started in S1. Amazing, gut-wrenching Ep.
3.) Season 4 (Lucifer Rising)
This was the first episode airing after I caught up binge watching the show. Great ending. Ruby getting stabbed will always be a fond memory, and the cut to white with Lucifer..well..rising was intense. The summer break was Hell
4.) Season 3 (No Rest for the Wicked)
Dean goes to Hell. The entire (well it was half the episodes but still) season built to this moment, and when Dean actually died it was still surprising and sad
5.) Season 8 (Sacrifice)
Crowley's monologue was good enough, but the brothers' talk at the end is very emotional and unforgettable
6.) Season 1 (Devil's Trap)
This should probably be higher, it was the first one after all. YED was properly introduced and we were left on a cliffhanger that would have drove me crazy had I not been binge watching
7.) Season 9 (Do You Believe in Miracles?)
Metatron was not a good big bad, but after a mess of a season it was cool seeing Gadriel get redemption, and of course DemonDean had me excited...There was a lot of potential, great set up for s10.."I'm proud of us"
8.) Season 6 (The Man Who Knew Too Much)
Whaaaaat? Cas is GOD? That cliffhanger is all I needed
9.) Season 10 (Brother's Keeper)
Yeah keeping your brother at the expense of the world...Good parts, but too new for a proper listing by me. Sour taste still in my mouth...Set-up for Season 11 has potential though
10.) Season 7 (Survival of the Fittest)
Baby was back and Dick finally was killed..that's about it...
My rankings are off the top of my head and a couple spots could definitely be switched depending on my mood, but for the most part I stand by these. Looking back, most finales left us with a lot of potential for the next season- even the later season ones....What are your rankings?
