Rewatching 5-4 The End

Thank you everyone for your participation in the poll this week! I can tell this is a favorite episode of many. I've thought a bit about why I like it so much. Some are very superficial - having to do with how good the boys look - my GAWWWWD! *headdesk* Some are angst (the feelings for Dean and Sam ... rubs heart) Some are having to do with the humor and (literal) comic relief. Most importantly though, THIS is an episode that changes destiny ... Where Dean realizes AGAIN that the only way they are going to have a hope of beating it is to stick together. No matter if the angels and demons are going to use it against them. Zach tries to teach Dean a lesson which totally backfires on him. And just as I enjoyed It's a Terrible Life for the lesson Dean learns there, so I also enjoy this ep for the lesson Dean learns. All the above together make this episode an awesome episode for me.
