Brooklyn Nine-Nine - "Halloween III"
Halloween is a tradition at the precinct, with Holt and Jake making their annual deal to see who is the best at pulling one over on the other. The third time around though, there was a surprise winner and she couldn't be more deserving of the title.
Boy Meets World - "And Then There Was Shawn"
A fan favorite, Boy Meets World somehow managed to entertain and spook in the same episode. There was legitimate fear watching everyone get killed off even knowing that it wasn't permanent.
The Office - "Here Comes Treble"
There is obviously that love for the original Halloween episodes of The Office, and yet Dwight putting a pumpkin on his head somehow wins for best episode. Not only was it hilarious, but it is also now a perfect meme and who doesn't love those?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer - "Fear, Itself"
Buffy the Vampire Slayer created its own spin on the Halloween episode, with Buffy joining Willow, Oz, and Xander at a fraternity party. Meanwhile, Giles tries to catch the holiday spirit.
American Horror Story: Freak Show - "Edward Mordrake"
There is a case to be made that Murder House did it best, and yet Dandy was a ridiculous scene stealer that wouldn't be happy if he didn't get this honor. He also clearly knew the importance of having a good Halloween.
The Vampire Diaries - "Haunted"
Call it nostalgia, but even though there are plenty of Halloween themed episodes to choose from, there is something about the original. The show was at its prime and exploring what becoming a vampire meant for an unknowing human was fearful in its own ways.
