Welcome back to the “Memorable Moments” series! For episode 13.04, “The Big Empty”, I once again put together a list of what I felt were the best and most memorable moments from the episode. The list varies from episode to episode depending on what transpired. I hope you enjoy it and share what your picks would be!
While Sam is reading quietly ….
….Dean brings Sam a beer and starts to apologise for his resent behaviour.
Dean: Listen man, back at Mia’s, I was out of line. I’m sorry for being a dick lately.
Dean: And maybe you’re right about the kid. He tries I’ll give him that and he tapped into his powers and saved our ass, so that’s a win.
Sam: Yeah I guess.
Dean: What’s up?
Sam: What if you were right about Mom. What if she is dead and I’m just in denial.
Dean: Don’t say that.
Sam: What? You’ve been wanting me to admit that since it happened.
Dean: I know I have. Don’t say that, I need you to keep the faith for both of us. Because right now I…right now I don’t believe in a damn thing.
Best Sam Moment
Sam comes to see if Jack wants to come on a hunt with them. However Jack says no.
Sam: Jack I really think this would be good for you, you know maybe a change of scenery might..
Jack: Get my powers back.
Sam: Yeah maybe
Jack: So I can be your inter-dimensional can opener…you’re using me.
Sam: Jack when you were born, it ripped a hole in reality, like a door from this world to another to a really bad, bad place. So Dean and Cas and I, we closed that door, but our mom, Mary, she’s trapped on the other side. If we can get your powers back, maybe we can open that door up maybe…
Jack: You want to save her.
Sam: Yeah, yeah I do, but if this doesn’t work, if that can’t happen, that’s ok, because I do care about you, but I should have told you. I’m sorry it’s a lot and umm…
Jack: Dean can’t even look at me, he wants to kill me.
Sam: I won’t let that happen. Listen there’s one thing Dean respects is effort. So come along, help us out. Let’s be the good guys.
Best Dean Moment
Dean comes into the kitchen for a couple of beers. He sees Jack and goes to him.
Dean: You did good today Jack.
Dean leaves and Jack can’t help but smile. Dean is finally accepting and possibly believing in him.
Best Castiel Moment
Cas being beaten by the Entity of himself, wanting him to give in and sleep for eternity.
However Cas doesn’t back down and demands to be returned to earth or else he will never leave him in peace. “I will fight you for eternity. Release me!”
Castiel is later found passed out in a field….
Castiel wakes up and realises he’s back on earth…
and takes a deep breath and soaks in his new found freedom.
Best Jack Moment
Jack confides in Mia the Shapeshifter about his mother and asks if she could change into her image.
She agree and becomes Kelly.
Jack becomes emotional seeing his mother’s image.
Kelly/Mia sits down with Jack. Jack confesses that he is afraid.
Kelly: Why are you afraid
Jack: Sam thinks you’re right, that I’m good. He wants me to believe it and I want to believe it too, it’s just I….I’ve hurt people. I didn’t mean to, it was an accident and I know I should feel bad and I say I feel bad. But most of the time, mostly I don’t feel anything. And that’s why I think maybe, maybe I’m a monster.
Kelly: Jack it doesn’t matter what you are. It matters what you do and even monsters can do good in this world.
Jack: You really believe that?
Kelly: I have to, I have to.
The two embrace each other.
Best Angle Shot
The down view of Dean in the Bunker.
The down view of Cas and the Entity in the Big Empty.
Best CGI/VFX scene
The Entity in its true form.
Buddy being suspended in air as he shoots at Sam.
The scenes with the two Castiel’s together.
The hair and teeth, Sam finds in the bathtub.
Best Set Location
I loved the houses they picked for this episode,
both their designs and unique characters.
