    I am working on some new photo galleries and other TV-related articles right now reflecting back on this past season.

    VERY TIME SENSITIVE!

    Emmy nominees but popular shows as well.

    Provide your top
    answers to the following questions. I really need specifics as well as
    the show names, episode titles, details, even the portion of the episode
    that is featured (beginnning, middle, end). Use our normal timeframe of
    June 2012 through May 2013.

    There are other topics I will ask about, but let’s discuss drama/tragedy in this thread. Answer as many or as few of these as you want. Provide a bunch of answers or one per question.

    1. Favorite screaming match of the year.

    For #7 – Most Terrifying TV Moment of the year:

    In the series finale of The Closer, “The Last Word”, in the final 15 minutes, when Brenda walks into her bathroom only to discover that her window is open and her screen has been pushed in. She slowly walks into the kitchen to get her gun from her purse, only for her nemesis Phillip Stroh to walk in holding someone hostage.

    For #10 – Best Crying Moment of the Year:

    Series finale of the Closer, final 5 minutes, in the boardroom where Brenda is surrounded by her co-workers saying her goodbyes. And she says the first words that she said in the pilot episode “It looks like love”

    I’ll have my stuff tomorrow, a Continuum-exclusive edition.  Can’t ban it for being Canadian or any of that stuff. It aired on U.S. broadcast TV.  And it’s probably eligible for Screen Actors Guild consideration.

    OR
    J. Smith-Cameron’s absolutely terrific “crying” moment after his son is released from death’s row in the beginning of Rectify’s pilot, Always There.

    12. Best lines of dialogue of the year.
    Khandi Alexander’s line which was excellently delivered after the arson case was decided as a mistrial in Treme’s season 3 finale Tipitina: “Burnt me out for nothing… you burnt me out for nothing.”

    14. Most memorable shocking moment of the year.
    See 3.

    I’ll think of some more later.

    I think that the moment at number 15 counts as the 2013-14 TV season.

    Homeland: Season 2, Episode 5

    -It was hearing Danas voice that changed your mind,wasn’t it?

    Breaking Bad: Season 5.1, Episode 5

    The finale

    The Killing: Season 3, Episode 10

    15. Most memorable surprise ending of the year (season or episode). 

    The end of Homeland’s “Beirut Is Back” when Saul finds Brody’s confession tape. That, or the end of “New Car Smell” when Carrie arrests Brody. Or the end of “Dead Freight” when Todd shoots that little boy.

    5. Most shocking TV confession of the year./4. Most passionate or engaging monologue of the year.

    Don’s Hershey’s speech in “In Care of.”

    10. Best crying moment of the year.
    Claire Danes at the end of “State of Independence”when she discovers she was right about Brody.

    9. Most dramatic exit line of the year.
    Mike at the end of “Say My Name”: “Shut the fuck up and let me die in peace”

    3. Most surprising revelation of the year.
    Sally walking in on Don having sex with Sylvia in “Favors.”
     

    9. Best dramatic exit line of the year

    Breaking Bad: Season 5.2, Episode 9

    The last scene… ”…if you dont know who i am…. tread lightly…”

    This is the part of the 2013-14 season, but it was indeed a truly wonderful exit line!

    3. Most surprising revelation of the year.

    13. Biggest “ah-ha” moment of the year.  

    14. Most memorable shocking moment of the year.

    15. Most memorable surprise ending of the year (season or episode).

    Fitting for all four.  And I’m surprised this was only mentioned once so far: Breaking Bad, the end of “Gliding Over All.” Hank sits on the toilet and finds the Walt Whitman book Leaves of Grass, thus making the connection that Walt is Heisenberg.  This was a huge pop culture moment, and something so definitively Breaking Bad in style.

    Also, another amazing thing about this episode is that we get to the ending, Walt and the fam gather for dinner, and we don’t quite know what we’re getting for the ending.  Things slow down, nothing happens, which is strange for Breaking Bad, let alone a season finale.  And then, shaBLAM—OH SHIT!
