What episode takes the number one spot?
The Walking Dead is set to end in 2022 – but it’s not done yet. Over two-dozen episodes still remain, but news of its conclusion gives us a good excuse as any to look back at the crème de la crème of the post-apocalyptic hit AMC series.
From 2010’s first season which redefined what we could expect from genre television, through to Rick Grimes’ explosive exit, there have been plenty of episodes that will live long in the memory.
Common logic – and fan reaction – would suggest that the best days of The Walking Dead are behind it. While this rundown of the best Walking Dead episodes very much sticks to the first half of the show’s run, there are still a handful of classic episodes from recent years well worth seeking out. We highlight them here, as well as episodes every Walking Dead fan, new and old, should be watching in celebration of a series that dared to be different.
