The summer is winding down, which means the fall TV season is about to start picking up. Though the CW starts their shows a bit later than the other networks, I figure now is as good a time as any to revisit season eight of Supernatural and go over the five best episodes of the season.
As usual, the title next to the number is a link to a favorite scene from each episode.
5. Everybody Hates Hitler (8x13)
Perhaps you would not expect this one to make the list, and indeed I considered another, but this one was fun without getting super into the overall arc of the season. Plus, how often do you see someone dwarf Sam?
4. The Great Escapist (8x21)
The first time we meet Metatron. He seems nice enough. Or does he? Kevin starts to lose it. Sam hears things. A giant library.
3. Sacrifice (8x23)
The season finale was packed with stuff. Sam finishing the trials. Castiel finishing his own "trials." The whole converting of a demon thing coming to a head. Will the trials have a lasting effect on Sam now that he stopped before completing them? What's going to happen with a bunch of fallen angels on Earth? Questions, questions.
2. Pac-Man Fever (8x20)
Whenever Charlie's around, it's always a fun time, though this was perhaps a more serious episode than her others. But it was fun to see her join Dean researching and also in the dream world kicking ass. Plus, a Winchester hug!
1. Goodbye Stranger (8x17)
We learn some stuff in this one - like what Naomi is up to with Castiel and how committed he really is to his favorite humans. Also, we finally bid farewell to the first demon that really messed with the boys - dear Meg.
What was your favorite episode? Vote below and let me know in the comments if you agree or think I've missed the mark. As you can see, I was not a big Benny fan, so none of his episodes are on here. Sorry not sorry. Also, are you looking forward to season nine? Honestly, I'm getting a little spent on recapping the show at this point, I am tempted to throw in the towel! Never thought the day would come!
