Season Five: Sympathy for...Sam Winchester

5x22_SamLucifer+MichaelAdamFallIntoCage

I started writing fanfic during Season Five. One of my earliest stories, which is set in Season Five, Little Engine, includes the line: "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions, Sam learnt that the hard way. The road to redemption? That’s a long, hard, painful, uphill battle."

For me, that's what Season Five was all about: Sam's battle to redeem himself after becoming an addict, being used and manipulated by angels and demons and letting Lucifer out of the cage.

As usual, there are some fabulous individual episodes: Free to be you and me, The end, Changing channels, Abandon all hope, My bloody valentine and Swan song are personal favourites. And I have to stop there because otherwise I'll list half the season!

Swan song kills me every time I watch it...Jared's performance really had me believing he was going to his death...the restrained good bye scenes; all the demon blood in the trunk. Had the Show not been renewed I guess we would've had Sam and Dean jumping to their deaths together as Michael and Lucifer. Kripke didn't get the ending he'd envisioned, but Sam's desperate search for redemption really resonated with me and that's what comes to mind whenever I think about Season Five.
