Welcome back to the “Memorable Moments” series for episode 12.17 “The British Invasion”. Once again I put together a list of what I felt were the best and most memorable moments from this episode. The list varies from episode to episode depending on what transpired. I hope you enjoy it and share what your picks would be.
Sam is talking to Eileen about finding Kelly Kline….
….after some discussion Eileen says ‘Good bye Sam’
Sam says goodbye with all smiles.
Dean of course notices the special vibes between Eileen and Sam and has to comment…
…’Well that’s cute.’ ‘Come on’ says Sam trying to blow it off….. but we know the truth…
Best Dean Moment
During the morning coffee, Dean asks about Eileen. Sam replies she’s gone back to Ireland for a bit…..
…Sam hands Dean a special gift…
…it is the Colt…
Dean takes a loving look at it…
…and aims it ‘ Welcome back Sweetheart’
Brothers in Unison
The brothers sitting side by side holding their drinks.
Best Sam Moment
Eileen has mistakenly killed Renny Rawlings and Mick proclaims that she must die for killing a MOL. Sam instantly tries to defuse the situation.
Sam’s words reach Mick with the memories of killing his best friend. He lets them all go.
Best One Liners/Comment
Castiel’s voice message ‘ This is a voice mail, so make your voice… a mail(male)’
Best Mick Moment
Dr. Hess has come to America to get back control of the BMOL…. accusing Mick of not following the necessary procedures.
Mick stands up for himself …
Best Eileen Moment
Eileen tracks down the demon cleaning up Kelly’s trail….
She takes on this demon and wins the battle plus getting Kelly’s cell number.
Lucifer licking the floor.
Most Chilling Moment
Dagon informing Kelly that ‘Your baby is going to be just fine. But you won’t. Those weird little pangs, just a taste of what’s to come, cause Kiddo, birthing a Nephalim …Fatal…Always.’
Most Despicable Moment
Dr. Hess, the Head Mistress of the School, directs a young Mick and his best friend Timothy to a room.
The room has plastic on the floor and as the boys stand at attention, Dr. Hess informs them that they have a final challenge to fulfill….
… they need to ‘Execute orders, without questions’ and that ‘only one of you will be leaving this room. Good luck’. SERIOSLY!!! These are not MEN that you are asking to ‘Execute an order’ but CHILDREN! All I can ask is ‘Who is the MONSTER, here?’
“What the #%$…?” Moment
As Mick defends his and the Winchester’s actions, Ketch ‘Executes Mick without question’.
After gasping and being totally mortified, I once again had to ask ‘ Who is the MONSTER here?’
Learning that Mick was orphaned and living on the streets. ‘….I never really knew my Mum or my Dad. I was on the streets until the MOL found me’….’I picked a members pocket, not on purpose, I was just after a couple of quid, but I got a cursed coin from Ancient Babylon instead.’….
‘the MOL thought I showed promise, signed me up, gave me a life.’
However I don’t believe Mick thought he would be forced to kill his best friend.
Even after Timothy suggested they sneak out and he would contact his father ….
…Mick’s fear of living back on the streets had him make a horrible decision….
…he struck down his best friend …..
… and has been haunted by that decision.
As Sam and Dean return to the bunker….
….they find Mick has let himself in.. ‘did you know that your key opens every Chapter House in the world’
After a long discussion of Lucifer siring a Nephalim and that the mother Kelly had gotten away, Dean informs Mick that they are still looking for her but until they do…
The next morning leaves a very hung-over Dean and….
…Sam. ‘You look like crap’ says Sam to Dean. Dean of course responds ‘You look crappier’
Dean continues ‘I got to hand it to Mick, when you get him started, that man can drink. We can drink, but he’s got like the ‘Can Drink Gold Metal’.
Mick comes in showing no signs of being hung-over and pours himself a Tomato juice. After hearing a bit about his past, he then ask if they have Vodka.
This makes Dean very nauseous.
Sam and Eileen’s special connection.
The way Eileen looks at Sam is so adorable.
As Sam successfully tricks Kelly into revisiting the Doctors Office…
Eileen gets all excited ….
….making Sam just as excited.
Sam taking the time to learn some Sign Language, asking Eileen if she is ok.
When she responds that she is not ok, he comforts her.
Most Raised Eyebrow Moment
Mary ‘spending the night’ with ….
Ketch… Not going to judge here, everyone has needs. It can be a lonely life ‘Hunting’.
Best Slow-Mo Moment
Eileen getting hold of the Colt….
…and shooting it at …
Dagon, who is pulling Kelly behind her.
Just as the bullet should hit Dagon she wisps her and Kelly away.
Leaving the bullets’ aim straight for Renny.
