SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - The Walking Dead -

Star Trek: The Next Gen­er­a­tion Trek’s most thrilling mo­ment came in “The Best Of Both Worlds, Part One” in which Pi­card is cap­tured by the Borg and turned into “Lo­cu­tus”, which prompts a des­per­ate Riker to open fire on his cap­tain.

Blake’s 7 While se­ries three of the beloved BBC space opera saw its tit­u­lar rebel leader Roj Blake go miss­ing, its fi­nale (“Ter­mi­nal”) gave an even big­ger shock when the real star of the show, the space­craft Lib­er­a­tor, was blown to smithereens.

Buffy The Vam­pire Slayer Sea­son five ends with the Cho­sen One sac­ri­fic­ing her life, but the show’s sea­son two fi­nale, “Be­com­ing (Part 2)”, makes Buffy pay an even more haunt­ing price when she slays her great love, An­gel, and sends his soul to hell.

Twin Peaks In the tra­di­tion of “Who shot JR?” from the pre­vi­ous decade, David Lynch ended the first sea­son of his ground­break­ing sur­re­al­is­tic TV show with “The Last Evening”, in which Kyle MacLach­lan’s Agent Cooper also gets a bel­ly­ful of lead.

The X-Files The para­nor­mal favourite’s most anx­i­ety-in­duc­ing cliffhanger oc­curred in its sec­ond sea­son fi­nale (“Anasazi”). After Mul­der’s in­ves­ti­ga­tions re­sult in the mur­der of his fa­ther, the Smok­ing Man tries to snuff him out in a burn­ing box car.
