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.

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: 4.66 / 313 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.

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.

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.

112005 Rank: 20
Misunderstanding ensues as Avonlea prepares for the first Annual Bachelor Auction.

The King family are devastated when Cecily contracts tuberculosis. Alec and Janet must make a painful decision on whether to send Cecily to a sanitarium.
Comments: Harmony Cramp's final episode is bitter sweet. It's amusing that it ranks higher than any episode featuring her replacement.
