The Top 25 Sopranos Episodes

This is a list of the 25 best Sopranos Episodes. Totally debatable.

  • Long Term Parking

    Season 5 Episode 12 "Long Term Parking" is a big payoff episode. Adriana's swan song, and the beginning of the end for Christopher as well. Christopher's character arc takes a turn for the worse after he makes a fateful decision here. A choice that unfortunately does not get rewarded later on. Adriana's story ends in this episode, and it is bittersweet, and painful to watch.

    Season 3 Episode 11 "Pine Barrens" is just plain fun. An almost completely whole story unto itself, this episode stands alone as a unique insulated story. You could ask someone who has never watched the Sopranos before to check out this episode and they wouldn't need prior knowledge to enjoy it just the same. That said, it stands as a basis for future plotlines and essential character development.
  • The Blue Comet

    Season 6 Episode 20 "The Blue Comet" is the episode that you probably invited people over to watch. Bobby's swan song, and the air of inevitability that seems to be woven into the fabric of this episode make looking away an impossibility. This season gets going like a freight train. As a viewer, you are hoping there is a way for some of your favorite characters to make it, but you know that's unreasonable. Watching this I remember thinking that all bets were off, and even Tony could wind up perishing during this series' coda.
  • Season 2 Episode 12 "The Knight in White Satin Armor" has some epic moments, and some under the radar ones to watch for. I love the fact that when Tony goes to Janice's house answering her call for help he is seen preparing for anything before going in. Thats a moment when I realized how much I love this show. Tony was worried that his own sister was orchestrating an ambush for him. Brilliant acting again as this time it's David Proval, and Aida Turturro pitching in. Watching Richie Aprile's furious response to Janice's implications about his son is one of my favorite moments in the series.
