Episode: "Losing My Religion" (Season 2, Episode 27)

Grey's Anatomy is washed now, sure, but at its peak? Even the most anti of ABC soap operas watched a handful of episodes, and Seattle Grace's prom episode is definitely one of the five or so you'll shamefully admit to having seen. There's a lot going on, as always with this show, but the highlight is Derek (Patrick Dempsey) and Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) calling quits on the fuckshit tension and literally running off the dance floor—away from their respective partners (his wife, her boyfriend) mind you—and to a closet to officially declare what they've spent the better part of a season running away from. The catharsis is palpable. Frazier Tharpe
