Season 3, Episode 8 – Twin Peaks returns with a confoundingly beautiful episode that features one of the most experimental sequences ever witnessed on television, very little dialogue, a performance by Nine Inch Nails, and perhaps the birth of true evil into the world. It’s an episode open to interpretation, but it’s also a feast of nightmare images to haunt us until next week.
Season 6, Episode 10 – Veep’s season six finale is a hilarious flashback-fueled journey through Selina’s political past. She’s consistently chosen politics over family/relationships and with an upcoming presidential run (yes, again), it looks like that won’t be changing for a while.

Season 1, Episode 9 – In the final chapter of Genius, after a bout of loss and depression, Albert makes amends and finds happiness with his family.
Season 3, Episode 7 – This week’s episode is true “bottle episode” focusing itself on one location.
