Welcome to "Memorable Moments". Each week I will visually recap what I felt were the best and most memorable moments from that episode. The list may vary from week to week, depending on what has transpired in that particular episode.
Side note: With this article I'm doing something different this week. Some of the categories will have two entries one from the past(Bobby and Rufus) and from the present(Sam and Dean). I had to include the reunion of our Grumpy Old Men of Letters, Bobby and Rufus.
Dean telling Sam what he had seen in the Nest.
Bobby confiding to Rufus about his concern for 'his boys' with the upcoming apocalypse. 'Alright Papa Bear'
Brother's in Unison
Sam and Dean in alternate universes painting the sigils.
Best Sam Moment
Sam re-assuring Dean that they will win their fight against Amara and save Cas.
I do have to add that I laughed when Sam/Jared had to duck when entering the dinner.
Best Dean Moment
Dean befriending and re-assuring Kat.
Best 'Awwwww' Moments
Sam giving Dean a little cuddle after being possessed by the Soul Eater and returning from the Nest
Rufus giving a supportive grip to Bobby after being possessed by the Soul Eater and returning from the Nest
Best Guest Actor Scene(s)
All scenes with Bobby and Rufus
Best Female Representation
I liked both women that played the mothers Jane McLean as Naoki Himura
and Holly Elissa as Mary Henderson ( who also played Lucy in Monster Movie)
Kat being pulled by the Soul Eater
Dean and Kat being surrounded by the ghostly victims
The Soul Eater and his ghostly victims
Most Surprising Moment
When Bobby and Dean see each other on the stairs in the Nest
Their faces expressed both surprise and a kind of sadness.
Best Nostalgic Moments
The rock paper scissors
Using the EMF reader
and finding out the story behind Bobby's scotch from Rufus that we saw in Time After Time.
Dean being frustrated over both graves already being salted and burned and stating there's got to be easier ways to dig graves.
In the flashback we see that Bobby and Rufus had found an easier way.
Rufus telling the nosey neighbor that 'It's officially none of your damn business Ma'am'
Bobby : Were you ever nice?
Rufus: 1985. Worst year of my life.
Sam and Dean using (Bill) Rizer and (Lance) Bean from the Contra video game
and Bobby and Rufus using (Martin)Riggs and (Roger)Murtaugh from the Lethal Weapon movies .
Best CGI/VFX scene
The lighting of Sam's sigil
Best Camera Shot
Dean going up the stairs with the light coming in behind him
Best Angle Shots
The ground view looking up from the grave
And the down view of the grave site
There was a lot of great editing in this episode with switching from past to present.
Having Rufus and Bobby entering the house from the outside
to Sam and Dean entering from the inside of the house
The fight scenes going back and forth between Sam fighting a possessed Dean
to Rufus fighting a possessed Bobby
An overhead of Bobby and Rufus researching at the motel table
and it switching over to...
to Sam and Dean researching at the same table
Best Scenic Scene
The house and the moss covered trees, although it is a little on the creepy side too
Best Musical Cue
Willie Nelson's Night Life playing while they show the research being done by the past(Bobby/Rufus) and present (Sam/Dean)
Also at the end of the episode having the The Allman Brothers Midnight Rider playing on the car radio when Bobby leaves in the past and...
when Sam and Dean leave in the present.
