What Are The Most Heartbreaking TV Episodes Of All Time?

The 100th episode of Criminal Minds is just devastating.

There are a ton of absolutely devastating TV moments that'll make you weep, even if you've watched them before.

But are there ENTIRE episodes of TV that are absolutely heartbreaking from beginning to end?

Maybe you're like me and you've only watched "Flight" from Grey's Anatomy once because you can't handle watching Lexie Grey die again.

Or perhaps you consider "Memphis" from This Is Us the most heartbreaking episode of TV ever because Randall and William's relationship was so special.

Maybe you sob uncontrollably just thinking about "The Quarterback" from Glee, and tbh, you often put it on when you need a good cry.
