SPN 30 Day Challenge Day 25

Day 25: Favorite Season Premiere

I believe my favorite would be the 1st episode of season 4.  :)  I really enjoyed the episode and it was the first that we see Castiel and his awesome introduction.  i like it started out with Dean finding himself in the coffin and having to bust his way through.  And then the shocked reactions of his return by Bobby and Sam.  I think it's a pretty awesome premiere.  :)

It's 4x01 for me all the way too.

This is for me not a Castiel episode, though the last scene was a great intro for Cas. There's too much to say on the front of how he was introduced and expectations built by the fans who told me to wait for Cas for 3 bloody (literally) seasons!

Season 3 and this stunning opening to Season 4 really bombarded me into the fandom. Up till then I was just waiting for something to grab me, and I thought it was all hung up on Cas and Destiel, and the absence of it up till then. But that was incorrect advice. Don't wait for Destiel to happen, it's just too damn slow.

In this episode Dean happened. Sam happened. Dean and Sam happened, and we got to witness it.

It was the show's turn into making the series about Dean and Sam as people. They'd been dabbling at it in season 1 and 2, but always in realtionship to Dad, or revenge for Mom, or Dean's struggle with survivor's syndrome in Season 2 and Sam's struggle with the evil forces inside him and hunting him.

In Season 3 they turned it into the Dean and Sam show. They weren't there to wreak (Dad's) revenge for Mom, and they weren't there to save the world, or even people and hunting things. They were there united to save Dean (okay, most of the time they were not united, but it sounds better that way).

In 4x01 the show makes the final leap: this is about our boys. Their lives. Their struggles. Their need for each other. Their pain. Their road, not 'the' road.

From that moment on, everything is hung up on the boys. Yes, they still have to save the world, but even when they are not in danger or need to sacrifice themselves for the greater good. We get to know what they feel, we get to cry with them, and laugh with them, and root for them, even if they are going totally off the deep end.
