Picspam: Supernatural: Faith: The Final Motel Scene picspam for picspammy  
This is for the Scenes and Sequences challenge at picspammy. It's the first one I’ve actually been motivated to get up off my butt and do something for.

It's no secret to anyone who knows me well that the Supernatural season one episode 'Faith' is my favorite episode in the history of the series. Julie Benz gives such an amazing performance as Layla, and this scene, the final scene of the episode, was one of the most well-acted pieces of television I have ever seen. She and Jensen have such amazing chemistry together, and it shines through in this scene most of all (even though the whole episode is amazing).

It should also be noted, for fans of the show, that I believe 'Faith' deserves a second viewing, given the themes of the fourth season. I think it's a lot more relevant and meaningful and episode in terms of where the canon is going than even I thought it was.






"Hey. How’d you know we were here?"
"Um, Sam called. He said you wanted to say goodbye."



"It must be rough. To believe in something so much,
and have it disappoint you like that."
"You wanna hear something weird?"
"Hm?"
"I’m okay. Really."

"I guess, if you're gonna have faith, you can’t just have
it when the miracles happen. You have to have it
when they don’t."
"So, what now?"
"God works in mysterious ways. Goodbye, Dean."
"Hey. Uh, you know, I’m not much of the prayin’ type. But I’m gonna pray for you."
"Well. There’s a miracle right there."

that's awsome challenge they are having there now - and a great choice you've made too! Faith is one of my favourite episodes ever - it would probably make top3!

I think Faith is amazing episode, and I didn't even have to think about doing this scene for this challenge. That scene just killed me.

I'm glad you liked this, thanks very much! :D

"Faith" was one of the most beautiful episodes ever and Julie Benz as Layla was just awesome.
I loved her and Deans chemistry - especially in the finale scene and I always wanted them to meet again.
Wonderful picspam. Thanks fpr sharing. *__*

I'd love to see Layla again, but I'm not holding my breath.

I loved this episode to death, and this final scene, I think, is pretty amazing.

I'm glad you liked it, thanks. :)

People who said that this episode is a "normal" one, don't have any idea, it's awesome!
Amanda: d/l → closerisis2015 on April 4th, 2009 09:17 pm (UTC)
It really is an amazing episode. :)

"Faith" was an amazing episode. Dean looked like a goner until Sam found the fake faith healer, but they didn't know another soul was sacrificed to "heal" Dean. It's a shame they didn't learn the truth until after Layla was similarly healed, isn't it? I, too, loved the chemistry between Jensen and Julie Benz, and wish they could have brought her back, or that we could have at least learned what happened to her. Lovely picspam. Love, Robin

I wish they could bring her back too, but I'm not going to hold my breath. Layla was an amazing character, and her relationship with Dean remains one of my favorite things the show has ever done.

I'm glad you liked this, thank you. :)

That scene is so amazing. It really showed a different side of Dean. The whole episode was great but this just made it epic.

"Hey. Uh, you know, I’m not much of the prayin’ type. But I’m gonna pray for you."
"Well. There’s a miracle right there."


I always get a little teared up when I watch it.
Amanda: d/l → the hint of a sparkisis2015 on April 4th, 2009 09:15 pm (UTC)
I know! That last line is so amazing, because something has to really move Dean, and he really has to care enough to pray, because that's so not him.

This episode is epic. Especially since I stand by that, given the themes of season four, it feels incredibly relevant.

It was truly an amazing episode, so when this challenge came up, this was what I thought of immediately. I'm glad you liked it.

This is definetly a great scene and one of my top scenes of this show as well. I love the picspam you made of it, thanks for sharing :D

This scene really killed me. I thought it was amazing.

Awwww <3 I really need to rewatch Faith. Julie Benz FTW!
Amanda: d/l → and never let you goisis2015 on April 4th, 2009 09:11 pm (UTC)
Julie Benz FTW!

Indeed!

She's really amazing in this. She does such a wonderful job, especially considering I'm so used to her as Darla, and Layla is pretty much the opposite of her. She did a wonderful job.
Pervy Vulcan Fancier: {SN} You're a regular guy who isangeliquesg on April 8th, 2009 09:03 am (UTC)
Until I watched Buffy and Angel last year, she was always Layla to me. ♥ Now she's Darla, but still Layla second. :P
Amanda: d/l → i'll watch over youisis2015 on April 8th, 2009 09:05 am (UTC)
She bounced back and forth between Layla and Darla for me. But I love how those characters were complete opposites and she played them both so well it made you forget about the other one for the time being.

Exactly! That's the sign of an amazing actress, IMHO. :D

*sob* I love this episode and this scene and just... yes. Thank you for doing this spam!
Amanda: d/l → i believed in usisis2015 on April 4th, 2009 09:56 pm (UTC)
This scene was amazing. I love it just as much now as I did the first time I saw it. ♥ I'm glad you liked this, thank you.

I think they had amazing chemistry together, but never more than in this scene.

I also love the dialogue. I think Dean really admires her strength and dignity and it's so touching to see how he cares about her fate.

Agreed, 100%.

I'm glad you liked this, thank you. :)

Aw, this is beautiful. She is, without a doubt, my favorite of the females who have come into Dean's life on the show. I just got the feeling that her innate goodness was so moving and healing for him. Oh my GOSH those two shots where she puts her hand on his face and then he closes his eyes? I swear, my HEART.

Lovely job <33
Amanda: d/l → closerisis2015 on April 6th, 2009 02:22 am (UTC)
She is definitely my favorite. She made such an impact on Dean in this episode (enough to get him to say he'd pray for her). She was so amazingly strong, even though she got the short end of the stick over and over again. Her faith was so unshakable and my heart just aches during this scene. It is truly amazing, which is why I had no trouble thinking of a scene to do for this challenge.

*applause*

You own. This scene is one of my faves too <3 I ship those two together. Great picspam ♥

Thanks very much. :) I'm glad you liked this. I ship these two so hard you wouldn't believe it.
Natascha: sn_deanspirited_lizard on April 6th, 2009 06:13 pm (UTC)
One of my favourite episodes and scenes, I think!
Amanda: d/l → closerisis2015 on April 6th, 2009 06:40 pm (UTC)
It's definitely one of mine too. :)

Absolutely beautiful! I love Sam's little face in the second left cap down in the second set. He ships Dean/Layla so hard. ;)

Julie looks absolutely GORGEOUS in this scene. ♥
Amanda: d/l → the hint of a sparkisis2015 on April 6th, 2009 09:51 pm (UTC)
He ships Dean/Layla so hard. ;)

Of course he does. ;) He knew Dean wanted to say goodbye to her, so he arranged it, like a good brother. ♥

Amen! Faith is definitely one of my favourite episodes. :)
Amanda: d/l → i believed in usisis2015 on April 8th, 2009 08:01 am (UTC)
Faith is a great episode. I have a lot of contenders for second place, but this one is far and away my number one.

I really wish this episode and the pairing Dean/Layla got more recognition.

Ditto. ♥
