The TV Fanatic Staff has spoken.
Below you will find the best finales from the 2016-17 television season.
If you don't believe us, you'll have to prove it in the comments below. We've given our reasons, now you give yours!
Riverdale! I totally didn't expect Fred to get shot, even though in retrospect it makes total sense and now I have to wait ALL SUMMER to find out whether he's going to survive and get the first clues as to who shot him. - Jack
Into the Badlands
Into the Badlands featured two insane, beautifully choreographed fight scenes, a tragic death, and a final scene that turned the whole future of the show upside down. Awesome! - Ron
Shades of Blue
There were so many twists on the Shades of Blue season finale that I may need to see a chiropractor. Nava killed Bianchi and let Harlee cover it up. Wozniak found out that Julia was so far in Bianchi’s pocket that she okayed the shooting that almost killed his son, and when the truth came out she killed herself just as she was elected mayor.
Harlee’s takedown of Stahl went all wrong and he abducted her. Before it all ended, Harlee lay bleeding on the grass in the middle of nowhere, while a child shot Wozniak who was on his way to save her. I’m still trying to catch my breath and I can’t wait for Season 3 to start! - Christine
Once Upon a Time
While it can be argued the plot itself echoed previous season finales, the two hours gave the audience everything we've come to love about the show over six seasons. A curse, loved ones being separated and having to fight their way back to each other, hope beating evil, and a battle for the soul of the savior. But even better than that, all the characters found their happy endings, and happy beginnings, at the end of the book. Now, it's time for a new story. - Mandy
Mary Kills People
I'm amazed at how fleshed out the show and the characters managed to be in such a short season. The season is less than 10 episodes. I was unsure of how she'd avoid being arrested. I loved the way it was resolved. I also like that the threat of her being arrested isn't completely gone. If they get a season two, it could be interesting because the finale set up a kick ass Death Squad with Mary at the helm. - Jasmine
"Praimfaya" was the best episode of the entire series. It successfully wrapped up a lot of storylines, while flawlessly laying the groundwork for The 100 Season 5. The show as we know it is over and something about that is so exciting to me. - Paul
