100 Favourite Moments of Supernatural
The decisive season , the one that will give our beloved characters more heartbreaking choices to make and keep us on edge. With the Lord of Hell unleashed, Sam and Dean Winchester have to find a way to get back together on the same page and conquer their fears, their anger, their sadness to be brothers again in the truest sense and rise from the ashes of their pains. only to bring the greatest sacrifice a soul can give.
Plus: our show celebrated its 100th episode in this season, a triumph only the occasional show reaches. It’s a testimony of the fantastic acting we have noticed from the very beginning, the amazingly creative teams in front of and behind the camera, the high quality scripts, and. as helplessly vain as that may sound , of its faithful fans who have kept watching Supernatural, thereby making sure that ‘the suits’ would deem it worthy of investing money and keep this exceptional show on air. Furthermore , we are looking forward to a sixth season.
Sympathy For The Devil (5.1)
Sam and Dean barely escape Lucifer’s rising, being saved by an unknown force, only to learn that the Michael sword is on Earth , it is Dean himself. Hello? Becky emerges. Bobby almost kills himself to save Dean. Zachariah tortures the brothers to make Dean say Yes, as the Archangel needs his consent to use him as an ‘angel condom’. And, sadly, Dean admits that his trust in Sam has vanished for the time being.
I’m starting off with two favourite moments here (another proof of being a weak woman when it comes to choosing from this show)
Becky almost suffers a heart attack as she finds Sam opening the door, and Sam’s face at the appearance of his ‘superfan’ is priceless.
The other fave moment is also probably one of the saddest: DemonBobby washes Sam’s handsome head with the worst possible words. We have rarely seen the younger Winchester so crushed. Again I have to search for tissues. Come on, you Wuss. (talking to myself. ah, where has this show got me?)
And , to save him, Bobby tries to comfort Sam, earning us one of those rare Winchester smiles.
Good God, Y’All (5.2)
While Castiel goes searching for God, the brothers find Ellen and Jo and fight a whole city of hallucinating people seeing demons everywhere , the perfect handiwork of the first horseman we encounter: War.
In the end, the brothers part ways. Sam recognises the danger in his desire for demon blood and thinks it best to go on on his own. Sniff.
Sam: I’m in no shape to be hunting. I need to step back, ’cause I’m dangerous. Maybe it’s best we just. go our separate ways.
Dean: Well, I think you’re right.
Sam: I was expecting a fight.
Dean: The truth is, I spend more time worrying about you than about doing the job right. I just can’t afford that, you know. Not now.
Sam: I’m sorry, Dean.
Dean: I know you are, Sam. Hey, you. want to take the Impala?
Sam: It’s okay. Take care of yourself, Dean.
Dean: Yeah, you too, Sammy.
And Dean can’t even look Sam in the eyes anymore at this point.
Free To Be You And Me (5.3)
Dean teams up with Castiel, providing us with the occasional hilarious moment, while Sam is informed by Lucifer himself that he is supposed to be his vessel. And: hunters on a vendetta find Sam. Great. The guy just is not allowed to find any kind of peace.
The moment that touches me most is: IllusionJessica reaching out to Sam, awaking a tenderness him we haven’t seen in a long time. My heart breaks for him again. It will do so a few more times in the course of this season.
