Welcome back to “Top Six Favourite Episodes”, this time for season eleven. These are, still to this day, the nearest and dearest to my heart, my comfort episodes, the ones I go to when I need a laugh or a cry or the comfort of an old friend.
Before you read my list, make your own list of season 11 favourites! It will be fun to compare your unbiased choices (before you are unduly influenced by my memories or picks) to mine. If you regularly rewatch the series from the beginning (on Netflix, with TNT TV or on DVD), or if you followed the Supernatural Top 100 Episode Countdown that The Winchester Family Business unveiled during the 2019 hiatus, these episode should be fresh in your mind!! Nightsky reveals her Top 6 season 11 favourites after mine, so you’ll have two WFB staff lists as a comparison!
So without further ado, here’s my list of Season Eleven Favourites! The list is by order of appearance only, as they all are equal in their importance to me. For season 11, you may notice that I have episodes 1 & 2 joined as one episode. Since two is continued from one, I figured I could cheat a little!
“Out of the Darkness into the Fire” (Part 1)
After the Darkness is released, she takes Dean to thank him.
Meanwhile, Sam wakes up and searches for Dean, who he eventually finds passed out in the field.
While heading home, they come across a construction site. The workers are all dead, plus a family in a car. However, one worker survived and seems to be infected with a virus that made them all go crazy.
When the worker attacks the brothers, he is shot by Deputy Jenna Nickerson. She responded to a 911 call and found the workers attacking the family. She managed to kill the deranged attackers but was wounded in the process.
Sam and Dean take Jenna to the hospital, but find almost everyone dead there, too.
They find survivor Mike and his newborn Amara. Unfortunately he is also infected and gives his daughter to Jenna to care for, as he know he doesn’t have long to live.
The hospital gets invaded by more infected people. Dean and Jenna leave with Amara to find a safer place while Sam stays to find a cure.
Sam ends up getting attacked and is now infected. He doesn’t tell Dean when he calls for an update. Sam is determined to find a cure.
Meanwhile, Cas is dealing with the animal spell Rowena put on him….
…and Crowley had to find another meat suit, until his old one was released from Rowena’s immobilization spell.
“Form and Void” (Part 2)
Dean takes Jenna and Amara to Jenna’s grandmother’s home.
Jenna and Grandma witness Amara’s abilities….
… and needs.
Grandma is a little freaked out by Amara and calls for a priest, Father Crowley.
While Dean and Father Crowley go out to discuss the situation…..
Jenna becomes soulless from Amara feeding off of her and Jenna kills her grandma.
As for Sam, he is getting as much information from other infected people so he can find a cure.
After feeling despondent, he goes to the chapel and prays for Dean to survive.
Sam is then introduced to Reaper Billie who informs him that his time is near and he won’t be coming back. She also gives him a little hint that he won’t be going to Heaven as he is unclean in the biblical sense.
After some time, Sam figures out the cure is heating the virus out with holy oil.
“A Day In The Life Of Baby”
Getting pampered with a wash and blow dry.
Enjoying good tunes …..
…. listening in on the light conversations and banter….
… as well as the more serious talks.
Providing a safe place to sleep, being a home for the night.
Some down falls do happen …. being hi-jacked and taken for a joy ride.
Having fights from the inside…
… and those on the outside.
Enduring the battle scars.
Or worse, seeing those you love endure battle wounds.
“Into The Mystic”
A flash back 30 years ago in Cork, Ireland, were a couple is killed….
by a Banshee.
Their little daughter survives but her ear drums burst from the Banshee’s wail.
Back to present day where Sam can’t sleep due to nightmares of his time with Lucifer.
The brothers investigate a strange death at an retirement home.
They find out the victim was stealing Viagra pills. As Sam reads the victim’s profile, Dean casually pockets one of the prescriptions.
That evening, the manager is attacked and killed by the Banshee. The attack is witnessed by one of the residents, Mildred.
Dean interviews Mildred and finds she a little extra friendly.
Sam investigates Eileen and finds out she is also a hunter and was…..
… the infant who lost her hearing and her parents to the Banshee years ago.
Dean goes back to the bunker to get the gold blades they need to kill the Banshee and finds Cas there. Dean is still unaware that Cas is possessed by Lucifer.
Dean goes back to the home and waits with Mildred, …
….Sam and Eileen for the return of the Banshee.
When the Banshee arrives, it is Dean that is affected instead of Mildred.
Eileen are able to kill the Banshee.
As Sam and Dean leave …
… they are watched on by some adoring fans.
