Etymology[edit]

From French épisode, from New Latin *episodium, from Ancient Greek ἐπεισόδιον (epeisódion, a parenthetic addition, episode), neuter of ἐπεισόδιος (epeisódios, following upon the entrance, coming in besides, adventitious), from ἐπί (epí, on) + εἰς (eis, into) + ὁδός (hodós, way).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

    • 1935, Francis Beeding [pseudonym; John Palmer, “10/6”, in The Norwich Victims, OL 245514W:
      The Attorney-General, however, had used this episode, which Martin in retrospect had felt to be a blot on the scutcheon, merely to emphasise the intelligence and resource of the prisoner.
  2. An installment of a drama told in parts, as in a TV series.
    I can't wait till next week’s episode.
    • 2012 May 20, Nathan Rabin, “TV: Review: THE SIMPSONS (CLASSIC): ‘Marge Gets A Job’ (season 4, episode 7; originally aired 11/05/1992)”, in The A.V. Club[1]:
      We all know how genius “Kamp Krusty,” “A Streetcar Named Marge,” “Homer The Heretic,” “Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie” and “Mr. Plow” are, but even the relatively unheralded episodes offer wall-to-wall laughs and some of the smartest, darkest, and weirdest gags ever Trojan-horsed into a network cartoon with a massive family audience.
