Saddest TV Deaths


The Top TenXW

1Charlie Pace (Dominic Monaghan) - LostCharlie Pace is a fictional character on ABC's Lost, a television series chronicling the lives of plane crash survivors on a mysterious tropical island.

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!

2Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker) - The Walking Dead

He may have started of as a villain, but his last few seconds were heroic and very sad.

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

I've seen the top 3 deaths on this list. Charlie Pace's death, Rita Bennett's death, and Debra Morgan's death were all really sad, but Merle Dixon's has to be number 1. He was the best character in The Walking Dead, brother of the second best character Daryl Dixon. I cried when this guy died, RIP Merle :( - invinciblemario99

3Rita 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 was Sa when he said "born in blood, the both of us" that schupid trinity killer

4Chef (Isaac Hayes) - South Park

Just so you know the actual actor died, which is why they had this episode.

He was such a ladies man, more than I will ever be.

5Debra Morgan (Jennifer Carpenter) - Dexter
6Mike Delfino (James Denton) - Desperate Housewives

"I seriously thought that would just be a plot twist for the new episode, and that he would have a surgery and be okay. Then I saw the next episode, and he did actually die. Okay. I watched it fully, and then I went to take something to eat and I started crying a lot. I'm a guy, but I don't know. Having him since day one, made me feel just like when you lose someone that is really close to you, and you don't want to show feeling publicaly, but then when you're lonely, you fall apart.

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

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.

8Robb Stark (Richard Madden) - Game of Thrones
9Jack Shepherd (Matthew Fox) - Lost

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

17Cordelia (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

18Veronica 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

19Dr. 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
