A war is raging in the comments of our recap of last night’s Sons of Anarchy: Some fans think a character’s brutal, tragic end was epic storytelling (our view), while others consider it a sucker punch. To bring a little peace, let’s focus on the fact that people on both sides of the debate fought back tears and, more often than not, lost the battle and sobbed. In a world where we’re constantly deleting episodes from our DVRs to make room for the next ones, moments that stay with us are special.
We want to do a gallery of TV moments that left scars. The wounds can be fresh (Anna reuniting with Pearl on The Vampire Diaries, anyone?), or faded (I still remember curling up in my mother’s lap after watching Brian’s Song and tear up when I talk about this one episode of Three’s Company or even read the title of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode “The Body“).
Your picks, your stories. Go!
