16. dexter: are you ...?
 (originally aired: september 30, 2012)

It's a development that's been hanging over the series since its start: what happens when Deb finds out her brother is a serial killer? Six years later we finally got the answer. No cop out, no switcheroo, she really knows. The result: a full-on reinvention of the show, one that gave rise to questions about the status quo we've accepted for Dexter the character (and the show) all along.

15. luck: episode 9
 (originally aired: march 25, 2012)

The de facto ending to David Milch's horse racing opus proved to be a surprisingly upbeat capper, from Mike and Ace's d├ętente over the race track to the windfall for our sad sack group of gamblers. The latter in particular was disarmingly sweet as what were initially a group of degenerates at best ultimately morphed into a quartet of true friends, all hopeful of the future.

14. the good wife: another ham sandwich
 (originally aired: january 29, 2012)

The defeat - for now at least - of Wendy Scott-Carr (Anika Noni Rose) was "The Good Wife" at the top of its game. Whether it's the cleverly passive-aggressive way the characters manage to manipulate each other or the endless shades of grey they continue to become mired in, this show is a delightful meal any week. Here though we them pushed to the precipice, from Kalinda going all double-agent to Alicia being tasked with admitting to her personal foibles on the witness stand.

13. mad men: lady lazarus
 (originally aired: may 6, 2012)
