Saddest TV Deaths


The Top TenXW

1Rita Bennett (Julie Benz) - Dexter

This without a doubt HAS to be number 1. I was so sad when she died. And the show isn't the same without her.

I cried during and after definitely the saddest moment :(

2Debra Morgan (Jennifer Carpenter) - Dexter
3Charlie Pace (Dominic Monaghan) - Lost

He was such a great character with so much nobility and good intentions. Unfortunately you don't think a character like him is supposed to die but when he does it's terrible. I think this should be way higher up on the list as his death was not just depressing but emotional and empowering as well.

His death had me crying for like six episodes! Because you knew it was coming but not exactly when, and then it happened and it was heart breaking! To me it was the saddest death on Lost, and that is saying a whole lot because they had a heck of a lot of sad deaths!

4Mike Delfino (James Denton) - Desperate Housewives

I didn't expect that. It was shocking - Alexandr

5Albert Blithe (Marc Warren) - Band of Brothers
6Jack Shepherd (Matthew Fox) - Lost

Saddest death ever. And saddest ending to a T.V. show ever.

7Xena (Lucy Lawless) - Xena: Warrior Princess
8Pa'u Zotoh Zhaan (Virginia Hey) - Farscape

They killed the most unique, kind and powerful character. The show wasn't that good after she left - Alexandr

9Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter) - Angel

The most beautiful, hot and charming woman of Buffy/Angel universe dies - it's horrible. Cordy and Angel should have been together - Alexandr

10Bobby Singer (Jim Beaver) - Supernatural

The Newcomers

?Walter White (Bryan Cranston) - Breaking Bad

I don't know what got to me more, the fact that one of the greatest T.V. shows of all time came to an end, or that Walter White, who had been ready to face death the entire series finally met his end in the final episode ever of Breaking Bad. Looking at his partner Jesse Pinkman during the last few minutes you could tell that he was sad, but ready to die - ChickenKing

?Merle Dixon - The Walking Dead

Best character ever! When Daryl found him dead, I cried a bit

The Contenders

11Dr. Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards) - ER

There has never been an episode so sad and touching. This just goes to show how great the acting and actual show was. There will never be another drama as good as ER in my opinion. It always seemed to hit so close to home.

That was so sad. When his daughter, who had become somewhat estranged, made them stop the limo and she released the balloon into the sky (like when she was a kid). I'll never forget that. - davidthenurse

"the heart and soul of the ER" died. It was very sad - Alexandr

12Chef (Isaac Hayes) - South Park
13Lisa Madigan (Yvette Nipar) - RoboCop: The Series

Those who watched that T.V. series will understand me. Lisa was brilliant partner for RoboCop - Alexandr

14Nate Fisher (Peter Krause) - Six Feet Under
15Veronica Donovan (Robin Tunney) - Prison Break

Veronica was the smartest and the most desperate female character in PB. She was like female version of Michael. Why the hell they killed her? - Alexandr

16Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) - Doctor Who

"I don't want to go! "

17Nate Westen (Seth Peterson) - Burn Notice
18Joyce Summers (Kristine Sutherland) - Buffy the Vampire Slayer
19Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) - Doctor Who
20Hershel Greene (Scott Wilson) - The Walking Dead

The shock alone is terrible but seeing one of the most influential fantasy characters ever get their head chopped of by the governor is beyond words
