The Top Ten

1
Too Far Gone
Wow! Is how I put it! Emotional, shocking, action-packed and very well acted. I admired the scene when the kids (Lizzie and Mika) take out Alisha with a single shot to the head; something I don't recall ever seeing before!
The best episode yet.
The most badass episode of the Walking dead
[Newest]Liar. - The Governor

2This Sorrowful Life
Definitely the most emotional and poignant episode in the series. Redemption...
Most emotional episode of The Walking Dead! Pretty sad at the end!
I ain't gonna beg... I ain't begging you! Haha! That reminds me if what he said when trying to escape the cuffs in season 1!

3Beside the Dying Fire
The one where the Hershel's farm is attacked by walkers and when we find out what what Edwin whispered to Rick in TS-19.

DrRyAn

It is simply amazing. This is my farm I'll die here!

4Killer Within
The one where walkers invade the prison and kill T-Dog and Lori dies giving birth to her baby.

DrRyAn

The one where walkers attack and kill T-Dog and Lori dies giving birth.

DrRyAn

Only good because Lori died. I kinda liked t dog

5Days Gone Bye
The first episode when the madness begins.

DrRyAn

Perfect setup to a perfect show.
Morgan has appeared again in season 5 and season 3 but why did Rick have to meet Morgan and leave him in the same episode?

6The Grove
What started as another ordinary episode, turned completely into a shocking and emotional master piece! Couldn't stop crying for the last 10 minutes of the show, while I didn't drop a tear before this. Very we'll written, acted, and mostly planned. Hints were dropped in the early season three. Wow!
Easily the most emotionally intense, completely on the edge episode ever! Seeing the gun moving in Carol's hand before she pulls the trigger...
By far one of the best episodes, if not the best! Lennie James should have won an Emmy for his portrayal of Morgan in this episode! The interaction between Morgan and Rick is superbly excellent. The line Morgan gives "the meek shall inherit the earth" was just sublime!

7Pretty Much Dead Already
After this episode how could anyone deny how great a character shane was, "enough, risking our lives for a little girl whos gone! Enough, living next to a barn full of things that are trying to kill us, enough. Rick it ain't like it was before. now if y'all wanna live, y'all wanna survive you gotta fight for it, I'm talking bout fightin, right here, right now" maybe the best speech ever on the walking dead. Only episode that competes with "Too Far Gone"
The one where Shane opens the barn and kills the walkers and we find out that Sophia was in the barn.

8Better Angels
The one where Rick shoots Shane.

DrRyAn

I loved shane and he stabbed him ricks a bitch
Shane's death was well done. Most built up moment in the entire show.

9Clear
Morgan's return was scripted perfectly. He said some very sad stuff and his story is heart-breaking. He gave us some memories of the first episode. It was nice to finally see Morgan, and Rick's reaction to finding him. I was hoping he would join Rick's group. This is also the episode where we see just how much Carl has changed. He is becoming more independent, and dark. He wanted to go in the cafe by himself and shot Morgan when he was attacking Rick. This episode deserves to be number one!
The most touching episode. It makes you realize everything is not all walkers.
Rick, Carl, and Microbe on a run and I love that part when she goes back in for the picture how she grabbed the cat statue cause it was too damn gorgeous
[newest]
What? The best episode of the series right here.

10What Lies Ahead
The one where Sophia goes missing and Carl gets shot.

DrRyAn


The Contenders

11TS-19
This was the most intense episode for me.
The one where they get inside the CDC.

DrRyAn


12Internment
This episode was just filled with constant action and badass moments
To me this is in the top three along with when lori dies when giving birth, and when shane got killed by rick and carl, not only did this episode show huge charachter development, with hershal killing the walkers and then giving up his hope with god closer to the end, it also brought back one of the biggest T.V. villians (the governer), it most importantly reincarnated the fear of walkers, before they were just a distraction to the people

13A
I think this, Clear, and Days Gone Bye are three of my favorite television episodes of all time. But "A" is the Walking Dead at it's best. Better than all of season 2 combined.
"They're screwing with the wrong people."
-Rick
Definitely the best season finale. So many intense moments. I know it just came oit yesyerday bit vote for it

14Welcome to the Tombs
The humanity in all of it's sadness made this an episode to remember.

15Guts
The one where we first see Glenn and they handcuff Merle to the roof of the building.

DrRyAn


16Home
The one where The Governor attacks the prison.

DrRyAn


17Vatos
The one where the camp is attacked by walkers and Amy dies.

DrRyAn

Action packed all the way through. Even hits some of the softer side of the show.

18Made to Suffer
The one where Rick's group to Woodbury to rescue Glenn and Maggie and the governor gets stabbed in the eye.

DrRyAn


19Seed

20Judge, Jury, Executioner
The one where Dale gets killed by the walker that Carl didn't kill.

DrRyAn


21No Sanctuary
This is an awesome, action-packed premiere! Really takes you back into the action, as well as giving more depth into Terminus and the character Gareth.

higgsboson2142

The only reason this isn't in the top 10 is because it's new and not everyone ha seen it

22Infected

2330 Days Without An Accident

24Save the Last One
Save the last was the episode of the show that shocked me the most. It was one of the biggest turns for any character on the show. This showed the bad side to Shane and the way he would take a man's life in order to save himself but also to save Carl's life. This episode demonstrates why Shane was one the the greatest characters on the show.
The one where Shane shoots Otis and shaves his head.

DrRyAn


25The Suicide King
The one where Daryl leaves with Merle and Rick sees Lori's ghost.

DrRyAn


26Chupacabra
The one where Glenn discovers the barn full of walkers

DrRyAn


27Killer Within
Killer Within is already number 4. No need to put it on the list again. T

28Still
An amazing script. A lot of people don't like it but the writing for the second half of season is the best the walking dead has ever had. This episode is amazing

FailedStunt78


2918 Miles Out
The one where Rick & Shane fight.

DrRyAn

Great episode. But, I still think the Randall story was a waste of valuable time.

30Nebraska
The one where Ricks shoots those two guys at the bar.

DrRyAn

Love this episode. Serves as a nice example that people, not walkers, are the real threat.
"I hear Nevraskas Nice"

31Isolation

32Tell It to the Frogs
The one where they go back to get the guns and they find Merle's hand cut off.

The one where the group head to CDC to find safety and possibly a cure.

34Secrets
The one where Andrea discovers her shooting abilities.

DrRyAn


35Infection

36When the Dead Come Knocking
When Glenn kills a walker with a chair.

37Triggerfinger
The one where Rick, Glenn, & Hershel take a man prisoner.
