Katherine Pierce was literally dragged to Hell on The Vampire Diaries. We'd like to think she's dancing and drinking somewhere on The Other Side still.
So much for Sophie Devereaux as a key player on The Originals. Her Season 1 death served as a shocker.
We can still feel the pain of Moira Queen's death on Arrow. It's almost as if we were the ones who were stabbed.
We know actor Josh Charles wanted to leave The Good Wife. But we still have nightmares about Will Gardner being gunned down in a courtroom.
If you're gonna go out, we suppose you might as well have your eyes literally crushed, as we witnessed with Oberyn Martell on Game of Thrones.
We did NOT see this one coming. Chicago Fire opened Season 3 by killing off Shay.
Yes, we miss Joss Carter on Person of Interest. But we now LOVE Taraji P. Henson on Empire!
Nicholas Brody ran his course on Homeland. But the show was at its best when he and Carrie were going head-to-head, in more ways than one.
Rest in peace, Tara Knowles. You deserved better than to be carved up by Gemma in the kitchen of your own home.
Rest in peace as well, Hershel Greene. It seems like you had so much more wisdom to pass along on The Walking Dead.
It should not come as a surprise when someone dies on a show such as Teen Wolf. But we miss you, Allison Argent!
We mostly just love Ann Dowd, but we're at least encouraged by the fact that Patti doesn't appear to be fully dead on The Leftovers.
It's not so much that Alcide Herveaux died on True Blood. It's that his death was glossed over and forgotten about so quickly.
No, it was not surprising that Walter White died to conclude Breaking Bad. But his death simply has to be acknowledged in any list such as this.
Yes, we're going old school here. Only because the death of Denny on Grey's Anatomy may have been the saddest TV death of all-time.
Bang! Bang! He's dead. But, hey, at least Daniel Grayson got to see Emily Thorne naked on Revenge.
Zoe Barnes met her demise when Frank Underwood pushed her in front of a train to kick off House of Cards Season 2.
Omar never meant to harm anyone who didn't deserve it on The Wire. He was shot and killed during a convenience store run.
King Henry went sort of insane before meeting his end on Reign. It was a blast to watch!
Actor Dan Stevens wanted off Downton Abbey, so producers KILLED him off. Poor, poor Mary.
We reserve the right to change this if it turns out Mona Vanderwaal is actually alive on Pretty Little Liars.
Dr. Lance Sweets
We watched Sweets grow up before our eyes on Bones. And then we watched him die.
Scandal had no choice but to kill off Harrison Wright. Just Google all actor Columbus Short got into away from set.
Patrick Dempsey wanted off Grey's Anatomy. So Dr. Shephered for blindsided by a semi. Rest in peace!
It's official: no Game of Thrones character is ever safe. Look who they killed off on the Season 5 finale.
