    Very close, liked Hush a lot, but gotta go with Lost- Exodus. Brilliant pacing, acting, writing and editing.

    Exodus part 2

    It would take one hell of a show for me to vote against that particular episode of JLU, but Serenity qualifies. It's just a bit better overall.

    This is hard... These two are possibly my two favorite episodes of my favorite show. I guess I'll go with the more "joyous" of the two... Once More With Feeling.

    The Body

    OMWF sure was original, but the novelty wore off quickly for me. Not a huge fan of that episode.

    The Body. It actually made me :_|

    EDIT: "Burn the land and boil the sea, but you can't keep Firefly - Serenity out of the semis (6-1)."

    "Can't stop the signal! "

    The Body - Just such a powerful episode. OMWF was clever, and a lot of fun, but The Body was just way better.

    Quoted for truth.

    As for this round, I'll have to go with The Body. OMWF is one of the greatest episodes of Buffy, no doubt about it. But "The Body" is a more personal tale.

    Both are fantastic, but I'm going with The Body, the emotional impact of that episode is just unreal.

    In the battle of Buffy vs. Buffy, [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Body_%28Buffy_episode%29]The Body[/link] comes out victorious (5-3) and rounds out the semifinals.

    As great as "Tapestry" is, I gotta go with "Hush". The "Buffy" fanboy in me demmands it.
