I'll try to post these every other week day (Mon-Wed-Fri), but I make no guarantees. 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.

5.03 Beginning: We begin with a shot of the Great Plains Motel at night and then see Sam asleep in bed. He's about to wake up and find he has a visitor...his dead girlfriend Jessica.
5.03 Ending: At the episode's end Sam is again visited by Jess, but it turns out to be Lucifer in disguise. He tells Sam that he is his true vessel and that he will say yes and give his consent, but Sam denies it.
LUCIFER: "Sam. My heart breaks for you. The weight on your shoulders, what you've done, what you still have to do. It is more than anyone could bear. If there was some other way...but there isn't. I will never lie to you. I will never trick you. But you will say yes to me."
SAM: "You're wrong."
LUCIFER: "I'm not. I think I know you better than you know yourself."
SAM: "Why me?"
LUCIFER: "Because it had to be you, Sam. It always had to be you."
