It's definitely a top 10 ep for me, but there are at least 5 others that I like better. (Becoming, Restless, The Wish, IOHEFY, WSWB, Innocence to name a few)
I read somewhere that, while Ty King gets the writing credit, Joss pretty much rewrote his effort. It always surprised me that one of the best eps is by a writer who didn't stay past S2, so it makes sense that Joss did a ghost job on it.
edit: s_morgana, where would you put Passion in your list of best eps?
