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.

3.14 Beginning: We begin the episode with a stormy night and a man answering a mysterious phone call...which will cause him to kill himself. Our first look at the boys is of Dean sitting on a bench, eating a hotdog, and talking to Bobby on the phone about a new case.
3.14 Ending: By episode's end, we have the brothers sitting on their motel beds and Dean admitting to Sam how really scared he is to go to hell.
DEAN: "You were right."
SAM: "Forget about it."
DEAN: "I can't. I wanted to believe so badly that there was a way outta this. I mean I'm staring down the barrel at this thing. You know, Hell. For real, forever, and I just..."
DEAN (Tearing up): "I'm scared, Sam. I'm really scared."
SAM (Also tearing up): "I know."
DEAN: "I guess I was willing to believe anything. You know, the last act of a desperate man."
SAM: "There's nothing wrong with having hope, Dean."
DEAN: "Hope doesn't get you jack squat. I can't expect Dad to show up with some miracle at the last minute. I can't expect anybody to, you know. I mean the only person that can get me out of this thing is me."
SAM (Earnestly): "And me."
DEAN: "And me?"
DEAN: "Deep revelation, having a real moment here, that's what you come back with? And me?"
SAM (Raising his eyebrows): "Uh...do you want a poem?"
DEAN: "The moment's gone."
[SAM smiles slightly. DEAN flicks the TV on, reaches between the beds, grabs two bottles of beer and holds one out to SAM without looking at him. SAM takes one, they crack them open and drink in unison, while staring at the TV.]
