I actually took the time to CUT THIS SCENE MYSELF and upload it to YouTube - and surprisingly, it only took me 20 minutes. So, if this embed works and it all goes right, that means that I can do the same for my picks for S11 and S13, which don't already have the clips online.

So, today's scene is...

S10 - Cain's Entrance in the Teaser scene of 10x14:

Why I chose this scene:

I know, I know, there's no Jared or Jensen or even Misha... but listen, I really love Timothy Omundson. I think he's just phenomenal and, you know what else I love? REALLY AWESOME ENTRANCES. Especially really awesome villain entrances.

I could have picked Death's entrance from S5 too, of course, but I already had a pick for that season, and Cain's appearance here, at least in my opinion, is right up there with Death. The cinematography of it all is brilliant, with the lights going off as he walks down the hall, the complete blackout and then the return to normalcy, just as the guards have started panicking, and then it's like nothing has happened at all. 

Then there's Cain's complete control of the scene at all times. 

Supernatural, in the later seasons, has fallen a little bit into the trap of following their villains too tightly and therefore undercutting their menace. Something you only see when it's attacking, something you only see when it's controlling the entire exchange, is WAY more menacing than something you see the whole life of. Things are far more terrifying when you don't know how/when they'll strike and you aren't aware of their weaknesses or foibles.

I also just love that dialogue of "Am I here to save you or kill you?" and the answer being "both"... and of course Omundson's delivery is perfect.

Honestly, this was filmed around the same time they were filming Galavant - the characters look exactly the same, because Omundson couldn't cut his hair for either, and yet the characters are complete opposites, and both portrayed believably and perfectly. I really hope that Omundson is recovering from his stroke well, because I would love to see him act again in the future.

Sidenote: I could have also picked the fight scene between Cain and Dean in this episode, where Dean gets the final blow regarding the curse of the Mark of Cain... but it was, in the end, my second choice. It's a great Dean character moment, don't get me wrong, and Omundson is brilliant then too... but I really really really love this entrance, hence why I decided I needed to just upload the clip myself and be honest about what my first choice is.

Let me know any thoughts! I'm sorry this entry is a little rushed today! I'll probably make up for it on Tuesday, because my S11 favourite scene is like 5-10 minutes long. :P

It is a classic entrance scene, and right up there with Death and Cas. TO really knocked this out of the park and I hope he's doing well.

Agreed agreed. I was thinking I could probably do another whole series of these posts "One Entrance Each Season" hahaha

Well you're nearly finished this one, and there's still plenty of hiatus left!!! ;)

Tim is just so commanding and menacing and yet you never lose the feeling that this character has a sense of humour (or at least of irony) - and I totally agree it's one of SPN's best entrances!

Last I heard (I think Rob mentioned him at a relatively recent con), Tim is recovering well. I think the other cast members are keeping an eye on him.

That's good to hear! All I can judge his health by is his twitter account - and he's gotten more consistently coherent in his typing recently. So, that's a good sign.
