The Top Ten

Rita 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 :(

2Charlie 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!

3Debra Morgan (Jennifer Carpenter) - Dexter

4Mike Delfino (James Denton) - Desperate Housewives
I didn't expect that. It was shocking


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
Xena is beautiful madam, mythology sleng Polyxene. Xena is excellent fight to zord and body. She is have frend to amazon quenn, name Gabrielle.
XENA! (Lucy Lawles). Xena is werry good warrior woman. She have in body to warriors costeem, werry match frend and Xena is power werry match good opponent to mythical GODS.

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


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


10Bobby Singer (Jim Beaver) - Supernatural

The Contenders

11Dr. Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards) - ER
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.


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


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


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?


16Nate Westen (Seth Peterson) - Burn Notice

17Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) - Doctor Who
"I don't want to go! "

18Joyce Summers (Kristine Sutherland) - Buffy the Vampire Slayer

19Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) - Doctor Who
When I saw this I was like, "weeping angel if you dare kill the hot chick I will f***ing kill you! " but it did and then I was like, "NNOO!

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
