Best The Walking Dead Episodes

The Top Ten
1 Too Far Gone

Out of the whole Walking Dead Series, this episode was the best. The amount of emotion and action in this episode wad tense. It forever changed the Walking Dead story. However, Season 4 as a whole was not the best. Season 1, 2 and 5 were excellent seasons, Season 3-4 were both bad seasons as a whole. Season 5 was a good season, Season 6 was a yet another bad season, a little better than Season 3 and 4 and Season 7 was a bad season overall as well slightly bettDr than Season 6, 4 and 3. I still say that Showrunner Scott Gimple did a good job in some of the episodes from Season 4-7 that really were engaging (Too Far Gone, A, No Sanctuary, Always Accountable, JSS, No Way Out, No Tomorrow, Same Boat, Twice as Far, The Day Will Come When You Won't Be (good but in a bad way of hurting the show), Go Getters, Sing Me a Song, Heart Still Beating, S7 Ep 9, S7 Ep11, S7Ep13-16. My po8nt is that the show has a couple episodes that are excellent but others that drop quality. Seasons should have excellent quality all the way through and make every episode count so they do not waste too much of the fans time and patience. So far as of Season 3 Episode 5 for FTWD, Fear the Walking Dead is a little better than The Walking Dead to me at this point of interest.

2 Beside the Dying Fire

To me, 9TH best episode. The farm incident was cool and it really had the quality of a season finale in many ways. As a general statement for season 2, I think they killed off a little too much characters. For me, I think that the Walking dead felt basically like we should have a good amount of main characters die a season. For me, I don't necessarily think that always killing main characters makes the season always better, especially this early in the series. Two characters I would have kept alive this season would be Shane and Jimmy, Bethe's lover. I would leave these two characters alive because I do not think that they deserved death this early. Sophia was a great death scene, teaches you the lesson that you don't leave people like that behind, Dayle's death was powerful teaching Carl a lesson about being smarter and the group a lesson about their humanity. Patricia was alright because I saw absolutely no use in her. Those are enough fatalities in Ricks group and for the penultimate episode, they should have not have had the woods scene and somehow have the walkers at the end come to the farm by seeing the lights on at the farm so that Randall would live longer and actually say to Rick that I will help you and earn his trust.

3 No Way Out

This episode is my 3rd Favourite episode of the entire Series so far as of the Season 7 Finale with my second favourite episode being "No Sanctuary" and best episode being "Too Far Gone". I doubt that any episode except those two will be better than this episode as the quality of the show is decreasing every Season. The Saviors group being introduced, Daryl's explosion kills, Carl losing his eye and the fight for Alexandria were the top three impressive things of this episode. My favourite episode of Season 6.

4 No Sanctuary

To me this would be the third best episode. This was perfect to see the brutality in it, it was nice to see the given conflict Rick and the gang faced and on how Carol is awesome at killing and arriving in the nick of time. Also, I loved Ricks line we are not leaving until they are all dead line, so good, true and correct. Two episodes I like better are Too far gone and No way out because of the action and potential that it gave and or could or would or will ultimately give or given to the series. No improvements I would have advised, excellent job Robert Kirkland and the executive Producers.

5 Killer Within

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

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

Only good because Lori died. I kinda liked t dog

6 Days Gone Bye

Days Gone Bye is still the best episode of the entire series. The way it was filmed and directed, the pacing and the scale makes me feel like I'm watching a movie instead of a T.V. drama. I guess it has to do with Frank Darabont directing it. Other episodes that I like are those with scenes of Rick going crazy like biting the man's throat, hacking Gareth in a church with a machete, hacking the inmate in the prison, breaking down after learning Lori's death and hacking walkers in a rage, talking to dead Lori over phone, hitting the cop with a car after he refused to stop running and scenes where Rick got to say the most epic lines of the series like "We are the walking dead", "They are screwing with the wrong people" and his promise made to Gareth to kill him with the machete even when his team was captured.

7 The Day Will Come When You Won't Be

While it definitely is the most gut wrenching episode in TWD and in T.V. history in general, it is still a visual and suspense full masterpiece that might never be topped, EVER. It was perhaps the end of TWD in many ways for the majority of viewers, but for die hard fans, it is an emotionel rollercoaster and will never keep viewers more disturbed and on the edge of their seats. The episode delivers from season 6' huge cliffhanger and much more. Despite the beyond life sadness, it still is the best episode ever.

8 The Grove

I feel like this episodes showed the absolute limit Carol would have to go to to keep Tyreese, Judith, and herself alive. She still does have her humanity in tact, as shown once she lifted that gun and knew there was no going back, tears running down her cheeks. I don't understand how Rick would find her a danger, since all she ever does is do what Rick can not, which is killing imams in order to save other humans. A gripping episode that kept you interested, with a devastating end to the characters of Lizzie And Mika. Easily one of my top episodes!

9 Conquer

What is this doing down at 16? This has to be in the top 3! Best 3 episodes: Too Far Gone, Conquer, The Day Will Come When You Won't Be

Amazing season finale. Should be top 10 at least.

How is this not higher? This is top 15 at LEAST.

10 Pretty Much Dead Already

This was so heart wrenching to find Sophia, and it is so weird because how was she bitten, and when. It seems to me she was bitten and then ran off and hid somewhere and died. Otis then somehow found her and put her in the barn. I also wonder and this would be horrible, if Otis placed her in the barn alive since she was wondering alone. That would be horrible.

12th best episode to me, it shows how brutal the Walking dead world truly is. No one is safe not even children protected by their parents. Mind blowing to see that Sophia was in the barn but yet somewhat predictable that she died looking at Shane's view about her.

The Contenders
11 This Sorrowful Life

To me, the 7th best episode. Love the suicidal reckless Merle in this episode. So sad he died, killed off way too early in my opinion and think that he deserves to live for a very long time hell if that zombie did not get in his way and reveal his position he could have escaped after he killed the rest of the governors men and in fact, I would believe that he would be alive all the way up to the present, Season 7 or beyond. He would have probably be a huge fan favourite right now as he is so bad ass and would actually be a very valuable soldier in the all out war story line. I wonder if Kirkland looked back at the show and thought one of his greatest regrets was killing Merle of that soon and lets say the show was out before the comic and he thought writing it that killing Merle was a mistake. Still a very excellent episode.

12 A

10th best episode to me. Excellent on Rick and the group travelling, finding Derle and Rick bitting Joe's neck. The brutality is a strong component I'm this and near the end where Rick and the gang opens fire on the Terminus gang.

In my opinion, Season 4 was the worst season and with an exception of a few episodes it was pretty boring. But I think this episode was among the best of Season 4 and gave it a good rating.

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.

13 What Lies Ahead

The one where Sophia goes missing and Carl gets shot.

14 Better Angels

No I disagree, Shane was out of control. He wanted Rick's wife. Just like Risk said, Shane acted as if Rick was in the way. I get they were best friends which was so obvious and funny when Shane tried to carry Rick from the hospital bed but Shane was very insensitive from the start, wanting to kill Randall, wanting to leave the crew in Atlanta, wanting to forgoe the search for Sophia, heartless.

Shane's death was well done. Most built up moment in the entire show.

Rick killed Shane, surprised the crap out of me.

15 TS-19

I loved learning about the dead, how France is our last hope, and most importantly Dr. Jenner. What pisses me off most about the series is how everyone seems to ignore what happened on this episode which is definitely the most important secret the group learned. In my opinion the only way the Walking Dead can be saved is that if they learn about a possible cure instead of facing off against another human bad guy.

Nothing beats the sad, conflicted character, Dr. Edwin Jenner (Noah Emmerich).

This is the 13th best episode to me. It was great to learn about the status of the CDCs around the world, and that France may very well be the last hope. Also, the scene about Shane at the hospital was excellent. I do admit, though, that Doctor Jenner should have lived longer. Additionally, it is worth noting that Jenner had an automatic assault rifle in this episode. It would have been cool to see Rick grab those weapons before they left. However, understanding the time they had to leave the lab before it exploded, they would not have made it in time for other weapons. But I am pretty sure that there was an assault rifle really close to the computers when you look closely at Jenner and the episode.

16 Last Day On Earth

Why does everyone hate the cliff hanger? I thought it was really smart. It makes a great discussion topic over the summer and keeps people guessing so people get even more pumped for the season 7 premier. What better way to begin than reveal Negan's victim? I mean the episode could've been a little more well done because most of it was just them driving around, but the final scene with Negan was probably one of my favorite scenes in T.V. history. If there was a list of which T.V. scenes kept me on the edge of my seat most, this would definitely be number 1

17 Guts

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

18 Welcome to the Tombs

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

19 The Calm Before

Best episode. If I can sum it up I would say The red wedding but not much worse then that.It made me shed tears seeing the deaths of Tara, Enid and, Henry and all those other civilians on the pikes.The episode was paced brilliantly and can show what things Alpha and whispers are capable of.

Left me speechless. The best scene in the entirety of the shows lifetime. And even without THAT scene, the rest of the episode had a brilliant pace, atmosphere, dialogue, etc. Just fantastic

This is would easily be top 10 for sure.

20 Thank You

Amazing episode full of death, danger around every corner, walkers everywhere, and even a touching mini story of an Alexandrian that was shared with Glenn. Not to mention the shows closest call to a death ever with Glenn and the dumpster!

21 Internment

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

This episode was just filled with constant action and badass moments

22 Judge, Jury, Executioner

Dale's character portrayal is beyond outstanding. Made me cry by the filming of this episode, very evoking.

The one where Dale gets killed by the walker that Carl didn't kill.

23 Seed

Taking that prison, chopping off Hershel's leg, the best zombie kill when Rick pulls of the security guard walker's mask, peeling off it's face...AND we get Emily Kinney singing "the Parting Glass"...Now if this ain't the best episode, I don't know anything... sure as hell deserves a better position than it's currently in (17). Upvote Please!

This episode has everything, that's why it totally has my vote!

The best episode ever on this show period!

24 Home

The one where The Governor attacks the prison.

The best feeling- when they all arrive to defend against the governor
