Ok, I have four more episode titles and have 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.
“Home” ““ This episode is another one high on my list of favourites. I just loved the Missouri character. For this episode the scene I always think of first is with Missouri and Sam on the front steps after Mary sacrificed herself to get rid of the poltergeist. Sam was so scared and confused. His asking “What’s happening to me?” and Missouri reaching out to comfort him but stops herself, just really got to me.
“Nightmare” ““ This was my very first “Supernatural” episode, and I have to say, it was quite the introduction to the show. It was the farthest thing from what I had ever expected.
I sat through the entire episode not only on the edge of my seat but with my jaw to the floor. I immediately fell in love with the brothers, with their chemistry, their relationship, how they cared and looked out for each other. The final scene stayed with me for those very reasons.
Sam: Actually, there’s, uh, somethin’ else, too.
Dean: Oh, jeez, what?
Sam: When Max locked me in that closet, that big cabinet against the door””I moved it.
Dean: You’ve got a little bit more upper body strength than I give you credit for.
Sam: No, man, I moved it””like Max.
Dean: Oh. Right.
Dean: Bend this. (Dean holds up a spoon to Sam)
Sam: I can’t turn it on and off, Dean.
Dean: Well, how’d you do it?
Sam: I don’t know, I can’t control it. I saw you die, and it just came out of me, like a punch. You know, like a freak adrenaline thing.
Dean: Well, I’m sure it won’t happen again.
Sam: Yeah, maybe. Aren’t you worried, man, aren’t you worried that I could turn into Max or something?
Dean: Nope. No way. You know why?
Sam: No. Why?
Dean: “˜Cause you’ve got one advantage that Max didn’t have.
Sam: Dad? Because Dad’s not here, Dean.
Dean: No. Me. As long as I’m around, nothing bad is gonna happen to you.
“On The Head Of A Pin” ““ This episode just about killed me, it tugged and twisted at every possible emotion I had. When I think of this episode, I get flooded with so many scenes. I could have just rhymed off the entire episode, but I’ve managed to bring it down to three specific moments.
First one is all of Alastair’s scenes in the devil’s trap. His dry and sarcastic comments gave this very dark and chilling episode some much-needed light moments. “Sounds like something’s caught in my throat. I think it’s my throat.”
Kudos to Christopher Heyerdahl in his portrayal of Alastair, he was fantastic.
Next I would have to go with the discovery of how Sam had been getting stronger.
When I saw Sam drinking Ruby’s blood, I was not happy with this turn of events.
I’ve had moments where at one time or another I wanted to cuff one of the brothers in the back of the head but seeing Sam resorting to this, all I wanted to do was put that boy over my knee and beat his ass.
And to see that slimy evil smirk of Ruby’s as Sam drank her blood. UUGGGG!
I never really knew for sure if she was good or bad. I was forever teetering on whether she could be trusted and if her motives were pure in helping the brothers. It wasn’t until that moment that I new for sure that that Bitch’s heart was as black as her eyes.
For the last scene, I would have to go with Dean lying in the hospital bed discussing with Castiel about breaking the first seal and where their fate lies. Dean broke my heart throughout this episode and this final scene had me crying right along with him.
Dean: “Is it true? Did I break the first seal? Did I start all this?”
As Castiel explains how they tried to get him out of hell but they were too late.
C: “We were too late.”
D: “Why didn’t you just leave me there, then?”
C: “It’s not blame that falls on you Dean. It’s fate. The righteous man who begins it is the only one who can finish it. You have to stop it.”
C: “Dean, they don’t tell me much. I know our fate rests with you.”
D: “Then you guys are screwed. I can’t do it Cas. It’s too big. Alastair was right. I’m not all here. I’m not strong enough. I guess I’m not the man either of our dads wanted me to be. Find someone else. It’s not me.”
“The End” ““ This is another one of those episodes where I could just rhyme off the whole thing. But once again I have restrained myself and chose three moments.
The first one is when Dean is running from the Croatoan victims and the tanks come out of nowhere blasting the song “˜Do You Love Me’ by The Contours. That scene blew me away.
Second would have to be Sam as Lucifer. Seeing our Sammy like that was frightening. Kudos to Jared in this scene.
The last one I have to go with is when Castiel zaps Dean to him by the side of the road, saving Dean from Zachariah grasp. “We had an appointment”
I just loved that moment.
