Brothers in Unison

I picked a couple of moments for this category.

SPN 0186

When placed in their separate cells both sit in silence and....

12.09 84 Sam Lt

...stare downward.

SPN 0335

When getting their 'Chow Time' they both...

SPN 0339

...smell their food first.

SPN 0566

Both died....

SPN 0581 the same time.

SPN 0600

 The brothers were laid out the same.   

SPN 0658

Reviving at the same time.

SPN 0706

Lastly, both have the same expression as they escape.

Best Sam Moment

12.09 481

Sam stopping Camp from shooting Dean. "Don't. Hand me the gun. You want to know the truth. The President was possessed by the Devil. We saved his life. That's the truth....."

Best Dean Moment

SPN 1140

Dean talking to Sanchez on the walkie-talkie " We're not trapped out here with you, you're trapped out here with us". 

Best Mary Moment

SPN 1614

Willing to sacrifice herself to save her boys.

Best Castiel Moment

12.09 1648

Castiel killing Billie to save the Winchesters. "You know this world, this sad, doomed little world, it needs you. It needs every last Winchester it can get, and I won't let you die, I won't let any of you die. And I won't let you sacrifice yourselves. You mean too much to me, to everything. Yeah you made a deal, you made a stupid deal and I broke it. You're welcome"

   Best Crowley Moment

SPN 0373

Although Crowley was a Douche for refusing to help Castiel find the brothers. I did like what he implied in a roundabout way. No matter what trouble the brothers get themselves in, they always manage to find their way out of it.  

12.09 183

"Whoever has Sam and Dean, in the immortal words of Lawrence Tero (Mr. T.) 'I pity the fool'"

Best Mary and Castiel Moment

SPN 0287

The confrontation between the two as they deal with the disappearance of Sam and Dean.

Mary: You left them!

Cas: No...I... Dean told me to go to the woman...

Mary: The one you lost?

Cas: I didn't , I thought she....

Mary: Stop making excuses. Why...if they needed help why didn't they call me?...   

SPN 0283

Cas: You were out.

Mary: How did we let this happen Castiel?   

SPN 0484

Later(six weeks, 2 days and 10 hours), the two meeting up.  Mary apologizing and letting Cas know that this wasn't his fault, while trying to support and be positive.

Best Nostalgic Moment

SPN 0030

Seeing  the old surveillance picture of Sam and...

SPN 0032

Dean's mug shot. Man, they were so young.

Saddest Moment

12.09 1635 Billies death

Killing of Billie. I did like her character.  

Best 'Awwwww' Moment

The family reunion starting with Hugs from Castiel

SPN 1358

First to Sam...

SPN 1363

Then to Dean. "Thanks buddy"

SPN 1364

Then Hugs from Mom.

SPN 1365

First to Sam......

SPN 1379

Then to Dean.

Funniest Moment

SPN 0833

Camp and Sanchez pull the coroner from the body drawer. Staring off in a bit of shock, he manages to get a casual "Hey"

SPN 0235

I also have to go with the conversation between Mick and Wally. As Mick is trying to convince Wally to join forces and work together, Wally slurps on his drink, wolfs down his burger and even picks his teeth while listening half heartedly. As he leaves he gives Mick his opinion. " Limey paper pusher, take your offer and shove it up your ass. I'm sure it wouldn't be too painful with those soft hands."

Best CGI/VFX scene

SPN 0797

The beheaded Vampire's  body.....

SPN 0798

...and head.

Best Editing

SPN 0457

SPN 0458

SPN 0462

SPN 0463
