Truly breathtaking in every possible sense. All aspects of this masterpiece is handled beautifully and smoothly. A gut-wrenching episode that got all the emotions flowing. I love Breaking Bad deeply! - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

2 Chocolate With Nuts (SpongeBob SquarePants)
3 Band Geeks (SpongeBob SquarePants)

I just noticed this says Bank Geeks instead of Band Geeks. - RalphBob

Not that good of an episode.

A masterpiece of ending.

19 Hardhome (Game of Thrones)

I loved the rains of castamere but this one and the battle of the bastards deserve the top spot (along with Ozymandias)

20 The Soup Nazi (Seinfeld)

One of the funniest episodes I've ever seen.

21 Face Off (Breaking Bad)
22 Help Wanted (SpongeBob SquarePants)
23 Silence in the Library (Doctor Who)
24 Days Gone Bye (The Walking Dead)

Yes! The one that paved the way for the amazing T.V. series. One of the best moments of the show.

25 Blink (Doctor Who)

Blink is my favorite Doctor Who episode followed closely by The Empty Child and The Doctor Dances. This episode was so intense and well made.

26 Texas (SpongeBob SquarePants)
27 The Constant (Lost)
28 Who Goes There (True Detective)
29 Pandora's Lunchbox (The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy)
30 Human Nature (Doctor Who)
31 Bad Blood (The X-Files)
32 Cape Feare (The Simpsons)
33 Mizumono (Hannibal)
34 Fairly OddBaby (The Fairly OddParents)
35 The City on the Edge of Forever (Star Trek)
36 Stewie Kills Lois (Family Guy)
37 Middle Ground (The Wire)
38 Too Far Gone (The Walking Dead)
39 Emma vs. Emma (Every Witch Way)

Despite the similarity of the name of this episode of Every Witch Way to Alex vs. Alex of Wizards of Waverly Place, this episode had a great plot and it was out of this WORLD, do you know how man words describe it? 0! That's true.

Didn't mean to put the name on, we still have to wait until the series finale because the show keeps getting better.

40 Malcolm's Girlfriend (Malcolm in the Middle)
41 Trial (Batman: The Animated Series)
42 Two-Face (Batman: The Animated Series) Two-Face (Batman: The Animated Series) Two-Face/Harvey Dent is a fictional villain from DC Comics. Harvey Dent was one of Gotham's most trusted citizens until he had acid poured on his face making him go insane and become a criminal by the name Two-Face.

43 Ghost Fly (Adventure Time)
44 Son of Nergal (The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy)

46 An Indirect Kiss (Steven Universe)
47 The Suitcase (Mad Men)
