Welcome to a Special Memorable Moments! In honour of the Holidays, I have done a Memorable Moments on Season Three’s ‘ A Very Supernatural Christmas’. Once again I have put together a list of what I felt were the best and most memorable moments from this episode. This of course was very hard as every moment of this episode was memorable. I scaled it down as best as I could! I hope you enjoy it and please share what your picks would be.
The Gift Giving….
Cheering with the Eggnog….
Both reflecting while ……
…..drinking the eggnog.
Sam suggests putting on the game…..
While they sit back and watch….every so often glancing at each other.
Best Sam Moment
Giving Dean his last Christmas…
With all the trimmings, a Christmas Tree, decorations and apparently a very spiked eggnog.
Best Dean Moment
A young Dean giving Sammy a Christmas – with presents and a Christmas Tree.
Dean putting Sam in an embarrassing situation at the Christmas Shop.
Best ‘If Looks Could Kill’ Moment
The look Dean gives Madge before saying ‘You fudgin touch me again, I’ll fudging kill ya’
Best Guest Actor(s)
Ridge Canipe (Young Dean) and Colin Ford(Young Sam) did a fantastic portrayal of the brothers.
Best Bad Guy/Gal Moment
Madge (Merrilyn Gann) and Edward (Spencer Garrett) Carrigan portraying an Ozzie and Harriet image as they torture our boys.
Best Bad Ass Moment
Sam impaling Madge with the Christmas Tree branch…..
….and Dean impaling Ed.
The Carrigan’s basement with all their victims’ remains.
Most “I Can’t Watch This!” Moment
Sam getting his fingernail removed with pliers by Ed Carrigan…..EWWWWW!
The Santa Village Santa Claus. I would never have allowed my child on that man’s lap.
Most Chilling Moment
Little Stevie watching Santa (Grandad) get pulled up the chimney and seeing only a blood covered boot.
And a mortified little Jimmy Caldwell watching a blood covered Santa appear out of the fireplace, go upstairs and come back down with a moving body in his big red sack… Only to reach for a Christmas cookie before leaving.
Yeah, I believe these two are scarred for life.
Most Nostalgic Moment
Seeing one of the old Santa Claus movies. I thought it was ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’ but IMBD listed that it was ‘The Year Without Santa Claus’. Either way, it’s brought back so many good memories.
Sam admitting he can’t celebrate Christmas because it’s Dean’s last.
Sam: Why are you so Bing Crosby all of a sudden?
Dean: Why are you so against it? Were your childhood memories that traumatic? I mean this is my last year.
Sam: That’s exactly the point. I can’t sit around drinking eggnog, pretending everything’s all right when I know this time next year, you’ll be dead….I just can’t.
Santa’s Helper is sitting watching TV while drinking whiskey from the bottle and supporting a large bong, when Sam and Dean bust in on him thinking there was trouble…
….only to discover they were wrong. To cover up they start singing a questionable version of Silent Night.
I also have to go with, when Ed is just about to pull out one of Dean’s teeth when the doorbell rings. With the pliers still in his mouth Dean mumbles out….
‘Is somebody gonna get that? (bell rings again) You should get that.’
Most Touching Moment
A young Sammy confronts a young Dean about their Dad’s journal and whether monsters are real.
Dean tries to reassure the frightened Sammy.
Sammy decides he’s tired and needs to sleep….
He lays down and silently cries himself to sleep.
Best CGI/VFX scene
Getting a quick glimpse of the true image of Madge Carrigan and …
Best Set Design
The Carrigan home both inside and outside
The rundown Santa’s Village.
Sammy was the one who gave Dean…..
….. the Amulet.
Starting with a young Sammy giving Dean the amulet.
Then showing a contented Sammy, happy that he gave the amulet to Dean instead of this Dad.
We then see the adult Sam reflecting on that moment. Leading into……
Best Musical Cue
Then we have a close up of the amulet as Dean enters the motel room to Rosemary Clooney’s “Have Yourself a Very Merry Christmas”.
Best Yummy Moment
Christmas pastries and …..
….. Christmas cookies
Best Camera Shot
The outside view of the motel, with a window shot of the brothers sitting, watching TV. As the Impala/Baby guards over her boys, the falling snow starts to cover her and the Christmas lights reflect off of her.
