Votes: 84,309

A fiery conversation between fan favorites, Daenerys and Tyrion, that you've waited five seasons for and a bone-chilling defeat for Jon Snow in the most epic battle on Thrones to date makes for unparalleled television. 10/10

Just when Thrones digs through your chest and rips out your heart, it sends you soaring high on a highly anticipated dragon ride making it impossible to keep your emotions in check. 9.8/10

Director: Beth McCarthy-Miller | Stars: Amy Poehler, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza

Votes: 2,436

For a show with such an incredible ensemble cast, it proves a lot when only two of these beloved characters can spend an entire episode in one room and have it be one of the most successful episodes of the series. 9.6/10

5. Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp (2015)
Episode: Dinner (2015)

Director: David Wain | Stars: Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Janeane Garofalo

Votes: 486

If it had not been for Amy Poehler's gut-busting theater speech, this episode may have not made the cut. First Day of Camp plays best as one long, hilarious four-hour comedy endeavor, so all of the episode rank around the same level for me. However, this one brings the most laughs. 9.5/10

6. Suits (2011– )
Episode: Hitting Home (2015)

Director: Roger Kumble | Stars: Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams, Rick Hoffman, Meghan Markle

Votes: 2,297

A firm, divided. The series' tagline never rang so true until Hitting Home. The cracks in Pearson Specter Litt reveal themselves and grow larger than ever before. In typical Suits fashion, it leaves you beckoning for more. 9.4/10

Episode: S.O.S. Part 1 (2015)

Votes: 3,002

The culmination of everything that the superior sophomore season of S.H.I.E.L.D. built up was finally laid out on the table so satisfyingly in this finale. And boy, did they step up their special effects game. 9.0/10

8. Wayward Pines (2015–2016)
