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.

3.10 Beginning: We begin at Bobby's place...except it's not quite the same because it's his dream world. We see Sam depressed and drinking alone in a bar with one of my favorite all-time music cues: "Long Train Runnin'" by The Doobie Brothers.
3.10 Ending: What a way to end an episode. Dean just confessed to Sam that he's scared to go to hell and Sam promises to save him. Then we get a B&W flashback to the demon!Dean saying "You can't escape me, Dean. You're gonna die. And this? This is what you're gonna become!" and then *snap* black screen. Talk about your foreshadowing....seven years later!
