These are my favourites – what do you think of them?
I love this episode. We had the return of a scary Gordon, and an introduction to Kubrick, Creedy and Bela. On top of that there were so many memorable moments.
The brothers going through the storage locker of their dad’s finding Sam’s 1995 Soccer Trophy ‘probably the closest you became to being a boy.’ and Dean’s first sawed off shot gun ‘I made it myself’. The confrontation with Wayne and Grossman at Wayne’s apartment. Wayne meeting his end by the BBQ fork.. eww. Dean’s tossing the pen into the barrel of Kubrick’s gun. ‘I’m Batman’. The expressions of Sam and Dean’s faces during the picture at Biggerson’s. Sam forcing a smile as he’s blinded by the flash while Dean is all smiles looking like a kid on Christmas morning. Sam’s arm catching fire in the motel room. The list just goes on.
However I have two moments that stand out the most for me. First is when Dean brings Sam to the motel room to keep him safe until he retrieves the rabbit’s foot from Bela. The way he grabs a discouraged Sam’s arm and leads him to a chair to sit on, it was such a big brother moment. Telling Sam not to move or even scratch his nose. Of course with the power of suggestion, scratching his nose is the first thing Sam needs to do once Dean leaves.
Secondly ‘I lost my shoe’. Sam looked so sad and defeated, I just wanted to give the poor boy a hug.
This was another one where there was so many memorable, powerful and heartbreaking moments. It’s almost impossible to come up with just one.
Dean having to watch his brother go through his withdrawals. Constantly convincing himself he’s doing the right thing. Drawing the line, that he’d rather Sam die human than become a monster. Then there’s all of Sam’s hallucinations from his torture from Alistair, his confrontation with his younger self and with Dean, his reflection in the mirror, seeing his veins blacken and then being flung around the room. And of course his moment with Mary. His surprise when he first hears her ‘poor baby’ and then sees her. Her ‘you look awful’ has him glance down at himself and makes the assumption ‘how disappointed she would be’ and what a ‘piss poor excuse for a son’ he is. However his desperate need for her approval has the hallucination siding with him and his mission.
Then of course the final confrontation between Sam and Dean.
However the one moment that stands out the most for me is the confrontation between Sam and Bobby. With Bobby holding a shotgun to Sam wanting him to go back into the panic room. However Sam believes Bobby won’t be able to shoot him.
‘You can’t do it”
“We’re trying to help you Sam,” says a choked up Bobby.
Sam takes hold of the barrel of the gun and puts it to his chest “Then shoot.”
A teary eyed Sam than gives Bobby a chance to pull the trigger, however Bobby hesitates. Sam quickly takes over the shotgun and knocks him out.
Then Sam throws the shotgun down. The look on Sam face just breaks my heart.
With this one I have two moments. First is when Bobby and Annie find the room where all the dead bodies, including Annie’s, were hidden. The look on Annie’s face at the realization that she is really dead is quite sad. She tells Bobby that she wants a hunter’s funeral, that she doesn’t want to linger on as a ghost. The other is when the brothers are finally able to see Bobby. The surprise on all three of their faces was priceless.
This one I have two scenes that stood out for me. First was the opening scene where Dean is roaming in a dark building with his pistol at the ready. He then gets knocked down by Cas. Cas then kills Dean. The lights come on and Naomi comes out and comments on Cas’s performance ‘No hesitation, quick, brutal, everything back in order. Finally you’re ready’ The camera spreads out showing the entire room and there are endless dead Dean’s. That was quite disturbing.
The other is the end scene when the brothers are in the car after Cas left with the Angel tablet and they have to witness Crowley killing Meg. Dean has told Sam about what happened with Cas. Dean tells Sam that he can’t take anymore lies from anyone. Sam apologizes and agrees to be honest from now on.
‘Listen I may not be able to carry the burden that comes along with these trials but I can carry you.”
“You realise you kind of just quoted Lord of the Rings, right?”
“Come on man, but it’s the Rudy Hobbit alright. Rudy Hobbit always gets a pass.”
“Shut up” says Dean as he puts on the radio. Supertramp’s Goodbye Stranger starts playing.
The scene then breaks to Naomi at her desk when a minion comes in and shakes her head.
It then has Cas putting the tablet in a backpack while travelling on a coach line bus.
Those are my favorite scenes, now it’s time to share yours.
