Which of your favorite TV characters got the (elevator) shaft and made our jaws drop? There have been many TV goodbyes throughout the years that have hit us right in the feels. Here are 11 OMFG shocking TV deaths that totally made us gasp. Spoilers, obviously.
Adriana La Cerva, 'The Sopranos'
"The Sopranos" was full of brutal moments, but Adriana's death-by-Silvio hit us hard and proved that nobody on the show was safe from getting whacked. We'll never forget Drea de Matteo begging for her life amidst the crispy fall foliage. Cooperating with the feds is a no-no on this series.
The Red Wedding, 'Game of Thrones'
"Where were you when you watched the Red Wedding go down?" is a question we'll probably all be asking one another for years to come. "Game of Thrones" has oodles of death shockers, but this was the unforgettable TV bloodbath to end all TV bloodbaths, and it resulted in the massacres of Catelyn, Robb Stark, and his pregnant bride. Remind us to never hire that party planner.
Jon Snow, 'Game of Thrones'
Speaking of "Game of Thrones," we had to include one of 2015's most jaw-dropping scenes: Jon Snow's lifeless body in the snow after being stabbed. Something tells us (um, every promo for Season 6) that we can expect a resurrection.
Susan Ross, 'Seinfeld'
George Constanza actually walking down the aisle was a long shot, so we knew something had to happen to Susan before he said his vows. We guess death by toxic envelopes will have to do. What's the Seinfeldian way to mourn? Get some coffee and call up Marisa Tomei for a date... which is exactly what George does as soon as he gets the grim news.
Joyce Summers, 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'
Noooooo. Not Mama Buffy. Things got real in this beautifully sad episode where Buffy's mother suddenly passes due to a brain aneurysm. Perhaps Anya put it best. "Joyce will never have any more fruit punch, ever, and she'll never have eggs, or yawn or brush her hair, not ever, and no one will explain to me why." We want explanations too, Anya.
Zoe Barnes, 'House of Cards'
OMFG, indeed. This was a blink-and-you'll-almost-miss-it kill that wasted no time in literally throwing out a main character just like that. The moment Frank pushed Zoe in front of the the MFing train like it was NBD we knew he was more ruthless that we imagined. Yikes.
Derek Shepherd, 'Grey's Anatomy'
"Grey's Anatomy" has so many fatalities that we could write a whole article ranking them by sadness. (Oh, wait, we did.) But Der's death was the most heartbreaking dark and twisty twist of the lot. Rest in peace, Dr. McDreamy.
Lane Pryce, 'Mad Men'
"Mad Men" churned out its fair share of somber moments, and Lane Pryce's suicide was definitely one of the hardest to swallow. "Commissions and Fees" goes down as one of the show's most haunting episodes, as well as one its best.
Lucy Knight, 'E.R.'
"E.R" was a total death factory, as its title suggests it would be, so we were never really that surprised when someone bit the dust. But sweet Lucy getting stabbed by a patient while Carter looked on as she met her untimely demise was just slfijeoiraweijsf. (Oh, that was just our head hitting the keyboard in a fit of rage-y tears.)
Omar Little, 'The Wire'
Yes, Omar was a criminal, but he was also a "Wire" fan favorite. And one minute he was buying cigarettes and then the next he was shot in the head by a middle schooler. We never expected him to say goodbye like that. For such a tough show, we're feeling an awful lot of sadsies just thinking about it.
Oberyn's Death In 'Game of Thrones' Season 4
Oberyn Martell took his cocker swagger and slow-but revenge plot into the arena with The Mountain. He got his eyes and skull crushed for his troubles. Fans are still traumatized over this gruesome death.
Will Gardner, 'The Good Wife'
Will Gardner met his TV fate when he was fatally shot by a client in the courtroom. If Josh Charles had to go, couldn't Will get a happy ending in the Caribbean or something? We didn't want to see this. What are you trying to do to us, producers?
Madison Clark In 'Fear the Walking Dead' Season 4 Finale (2018)
Kim Dickens leaving the series left fans in shock. The way her character went out left them shook. This was a good way to prepare for Andrew Lincoln's Rick to leave "TWD" later in the year.
Delores, Bernard, and SO MANY MORE In 'Westworld' Season 2 Finale (2018)
The S2 finale, "The Passenger," was an absolute bloodbath. So many of the show's regulars died (kind of). RIP for Delores, Bernard, the REAL Robert Ford and a (no pun intended) "host" of others.
George O'Malley In the 'Grey's Anatomy' Season 6 Premiere (2009)
We legit screamed at our TV when we found out the John Doe they were treating (and unable to save) the whole episode was George. He was the first "main" cast member to die, and it just exploded from there for future character exits via RIP.
