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.

6.18 Beginning: The episode begins with a rare jump ahead to a later scene with Dean and the Phoenix preparing to have their shootout in the town's street.
And I'm including these caps of Dean from the opening because 1) I can, 2) Why not?, 3) Dean is beautiful, 4) hand!porn!, 5) Extreme close-up on those gorgeous eyes!
6.18 Ending: By episode's end, the boys find out they didn't fail after all and have the Phoenix's ashes thanks to Samuel Colt. Time to take the fight to Eve. Love the last shot of Dean putting on his hat punctuated by the music.
