Tell Us Which TV Cliffhangers Made You Scream At Your TV

Which one stands out most in your memory?

In this new era of streaming, something I kind of miss are the awesome cliffhangers we used to get on TV.


There are still some good ones, but they just don't make them like Lost anymore!

Like the finale of Season 1 of The Vampire Diaries, when we finally met Katherine. (🚨Spoilers ahead, people!!!! 🚨)

The CW

Elena returned home, kissed Damon (even though she was dating Stefan), then talked with her birth father, John. Suddenly SHE CHOPPED OFF HIS FINGERS, REVEALED HERSELF TO BE ELENA'S EVIL DOPPELGÄNGER KATHERINE, AND THEN STABBED HIM. Oh, and did I mention Jeremy drank vampire blood and tried to OD on Elena's painkiller's so he could become a vampire?

Or in the Breaking Bad Season 3 finale, when Jesse was about to shoot Gale and then the screen went black.


Breaking Bad was the king of cliffhangers. But, also, poor Jesse. Poor Gale, too, I guess.

It's not just finales, either – remember the state championship episode in Season 4 of One Tree Hill, when Haley got hit by a car, Nathan (seemingly) killed the driver while Dan took the blame, and then Lucas had a heart attack?

The CW

This came just nine episodes after the cliffhanger featuring Rachel and Cooper's limo going off the bridge, BTW.

Or what about in Season 7 of Game of Thrones, when Viserion woke up as a White Walker?


Best. Closing. Shot. Ever.
