This post contains spoilers if you aren't caught up on any of these shows.
Lost: "The Constant"
This episode of 'Lost' was one of the best, which is saying a lot for arguably the best series in TV history. Not only did "The Constant" feature some crazy time travel, but it highlighted the beauty that was Penny and Desmond's relationship. It was heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time. So many feels!
One Tree Hill: "With Tired Eyes, Tired Minds, Tired Souls, We Slept"
This episode was intense and left viewers speechless after it aired. Not only did we hava to deal with Jimmy's mental state while he held students hostage, but there was also that emotional scene between Peyton and Lucas in the library. Our heartstrings snapped when Dan shot Keith and then we found out that Jimmy killed himself. Whether you were a One Tree Hill fan or not, this episode is guaranteed to get to you.
Teen Wolf: "Insatiable"
Hey, remember that one time Allison Argent (Crystal Reed) died in Scott's arms and then you still weren't over it two seasons later? Yeah, me too. If you're a Teen Wolf fan (or you have a heart), this episode is guaranteed to make you tear up. Allison died being a hero, but it still didn't make losing her any easier. Luckily, the show hasn't forgotten about her and makes it a point to keep her memory alive.
The Walking Dead: "Too Far Gone"
Two words: Hershel Greene. The Walking Dead fandom took a heavy hit with this episode. Seeing the sweet man we all wanted to adopt as our grandfather get beheaded on screen — not a happy moment. If you love this show, you certainly shed a few tears for the loss of this brilliant character. Plus, Maggie's face as she watched from a distance totally crushed viewers.
Parenthood: "What to My Wondering Eyes"
This episdoe was a tough one to watch. In "What to My Wondering Eyes," we saw Kristina Braverman's (Monica Potter) recorded video where she told her kids how proud she was of them while she was laying in the hospital battling complications from chemo. Adam cried, Kristina cried, we all cried. To top things off, this was a Christmas episode, which makes it even sadder because it's supposed to be the happiest time of the year! Just try watching this episode and not crying your eyes out.
Glee: "The Quarterback"
How could "The Quarterback" not make the list? It was done so beautifully. The purpose of re-watching this isn't necessarily to "make yourself cry," but to honor Cory Montieth's memory and a character that people grew to love deeply.
