TV Character Deaths We’re Still Not Over

Published

Many television series kill off memorable characters. They’re the essence of the show. Whether the characters are killed off for the drama or the actors decide to leave, it’s heartbreaking for diehard fans. These five characters, for example, had the most emotional deaths, according to the fans. Warning: This list contains spoilers!

Tara Maclay In ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’

Tara Maclay (Amber Benson) and Willow Rosenberg (Alyson Hannigan) had a one-of-a-kind romance on the popular hit series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. But their relationship unexpectedly came to an end in the show’s sixth season. Tara was shot and killed, ultimately dying in Willow’s arms. It’s one of the most emotional moments in television history.

George O’Malley In ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

Many fans will say they’ll never forget Dr. Derek Shepherd’s death on Grey’s Anatomy. But for others, George O’Malley’s (T.R. Knight) shocking death in the medical drama’s fifth season is more emotional. No one was expecting him to die and some fans couldn’t believe their favorite character was gone—forever.

John Locke In ‘Lost’

When a long-running character is killed off, it usually means the actor decided to move on to other projects. But for John Locke (Terry O’Quinn) on Lost, the heroic character was tragically killed off halfway through the show’s fifth season, even though O’Quinn chose to stay on the show.

Will Gardner In ‘The Good Wife’

Will Gardner (Josh Charles) on The Good Wife was killed off to create more drama. He was a likable character and no one was expecting him to die. Will was shot to death in the show’s courthouse by a client. Several fans agree the show wasn’t the same without Will’s presence.

Jack Pearson In ‘This Is Us’

The most current television character on our list, Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia) captured the hearts of millions of Americans in This Is Us. Viewers knew from the beginning of the show that Jack was going to die, but they didn’t know how. His emotional death in a February 2018 episode made all of us cry for days. At least we still see him in flashbacks.

When Real-Life Plays A Part In TV Plotlines

Not every show has its plot lined out from the moment the pilot airs, and still, sometimes real-life can get in the way. Even the best laid plans can go awry, and sometimes plotlines are created entirely to accommodate an actor’s unexpected personal issue. From pregnancies to off-set injuries (and of course plenty of on-set injuries), writers are reworking scripts so that you’d never know something else was happening behind the scenes. Think you know why an actor exited a show? We’ll bet you didn’t even realize that some major show plots happened out of serendipity. Read on to find out how in some cases, the truth really is stranger than fiction.
