I'm going to try and post these every week day, which should put us ending it on or around December 21st for this shortened season. Sometimes there will be more than one cap for a beginning or ending of an episode. I'm also using my capper's discretion - meaning I'm choosing the most aesthetically pleasing image that we see first or last not always literally the first or last things we see. I'll explain this as we go along.

3.05 Beginning: The episode begins with siblings arguing...no, really. And I just realized this, because I'm an idiot. These 3 brothers are bickering about their construction duties & supplies before a creature attacks, killing 2 of them. Then we see the boys in the Impala fighting about summoning the crossroads demon and using the Colt on her to save Dean. On the other hand...why are there 2 information numbers on the billboard sign?
3.05 Ending: At the end of the ep, Sam does just what he planned from the beginning...summons the crossroad demon and threatens her with the Colt to break Dean's deal. Of course, she offers no solution...so Sam shoots her.
