12. Best Dynasty Homage: There's been a lot of death and violence on The Following, but until this week, the show had been seriously lacking one key dramatic television component: a catfight. Fortunately, we can check off that box after Claire confronts Emma, the Follower who posed as her nanny and kidnapped her son. Claire slams her against the wall in a chokehold and repeatedly insists, "I'm going to kill you." Just the kind of woman who might marry a serial killer, ay? We finally... read more

13. Most Heartbreaking Finale: We know we're supposed to root for Raylan on Justified, but it's Boyd and Ava's unhappy ending that hits home on the season finale. After forces conspire to separate Boyd and Ava as they're stealing Delroy's body from the funeral home (no body, no murder charges!), Ava ends up getting arrested.

15. Oddest Return:
Jerry Seinfeld has kept plenty busy since the end of his TV show in 1998. However, it's still a little odd to see him return to stand-up on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno basically doing the same comedy he's been doing his whole career with some minor chronologically required updates (America's obesity problem! Push-up bras!). Aren't there struggling up-and-coming stand-up comics who need his coveted spot more? Also, isn't this precisely why the... read more
