As much as we hate to see our favorite television shows go, we love to watch them leave. It’s no secret that season finales tend to pack more of a punch than your average episode, and with that in mind, we’re rounding up the 2017 finale moments that will stick with us all summer. Translation: It’s time for EW’s Season Finale Awards.
Here’s how it works: The awards apply solely to finales, which is to say the final hour or half hour of any given show — no penultimate episodes allowed! This year’s awards encompass any finale that aired between March 10 — Vampire Diaries — and May 30. So with that in mind, nominate away!
