Sara is taunted by Felicity when she plans to submit an essay naming Hetty as 'Mother of the Year.' In retaliation, Sara plants a letter, stating that Felicity was switched at birth with Sally Potts.
Comments: Sara's journey culminates in this episode as the Story Girl unites with Hetty to challenge the definition of motherhood. Oh, and it was also voted Avonlea's greatest episode!
Score: 4.78 / 601 votes
32005 Rank: 5
Hetty travels to the Governor's office to prevent an over-zealous lawyer from selling the King pond watering rights, leaving Sara under Felicity's authoritative command.
Comments: It narrowly lost the top spot, but "Proof" may come closest to capturing the spirit, atmosphere and sheer fun of Montgomery's beloved Story Girl novel.
Score: 4.76 / 544 votes
12005 Rank: 4
Felicity gets into trouble with Alec after seeking the attention of a young cricket player.
Comments: The best Gus and Felicity episode is the episode where it all began. "Kissing" single handedly shifted the focus of the series away from Sara Stanley.
Score: 4.72 / 438 votes
32005 Rank: 7
Hetty attempts to compete with Muriel Stacey's teaching achievements, by recruiting Gus Pike as a student for the Avonlea schoolhouse.
Comments: "Ordeal" showcases Jackie Burroughs' finest performance, the introduction of Gus Pike and the best ending of the series. What else can anyone ask for?
Score: 4.7 / 394 votes
22005 Rank: 3
Felicity encourages her parents to dine at the White Sands so that she can arrange a romantic dinner alone with Gus Pike. Alec is infuriated when he discovers her deceptive scheme.
Comments: Felicity wonders if she will die an old maid without being kissed. Maybe she should look at the episode ranked at #3 to refresh her memory.
Score: 4.65 / 310 votes--
The King family plan a surprise party to celebrate Hetty's 50th birthday. The birthday plans go astray when Hetty falls deathly ill and must require surgery.
Comments: Another great performance by Jackie Burroughs. It's ridiculous that the Emmy's never nominated Burroughs for an award.

62005 Rank: 1
Gus proposes to Felicity and she must make a difficult choice between marriage and medical college.
Comments: In 2005, "Engaged" was the #1 episode in the Power Rankings. Interestingly, it lost the top spot within weeks and never regained the prized position.
Score: 4.56 / 341 votes
142005 Rank: 22
When Archie Gillis sets height standards for the Avonlea Avengers, Alec retaliates by forming his own team, the Misfits, and challenges Archie to a game.

Score: 4.56 / 304 votes
112005 Rank: 20
Misunderstanding ensues as Avonlea prepares for the first Annual Bachelor Auction.
Comments: The only episode in the top ten that does not feature either Sara Stanley, Felicity King or Gus Pike.
Score: 4.55 / 390 votes
72005 Rank: 17
Felicity confronts Stuart about Gus's return. Jasper and Olivia plan to leave Avonlea for England, which causes Hetty to dissent against the King family and she promptly refuses to attend the wedding.
Comments: Say what you will about the rushed ending. At least we got a satisfying finale to the series and we're not left with a cliff hanger like some shows that are prematurely cancelled.
