Warning: spoilers ahead!
Sometimes, bad endings happen to good characters. A lot of the time, TV writers give a character a particularly bad ending for a plot twist, like when Tracy (aka The Mother) from How I Met Your Mother dies so Ted can end up with Robin. Other times, however, a devastating finale hints at drama behind the scenes. While it's not always spelled out clearly, fans often read between the lines.
Recently, I asked the BuzzFeed Community which TV characters they think were killed off in petty and spiteful ways.
Here are 14 of their top answers:
1. Edie Britt from Desperate Housewives
2. Logan from Veronica Mars
3. Carl Grimes from The Walking Dead
4. Maude Flanders from The Simpsons
5. Eddie LeBec from Cheers
6. Jadzia Dax on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
7. Lincoln from The 100
8. Bellamy Blake from The 100
9. Chef from South Park
10. Suzanne Sugarbaker from Designing Women
11. Cordelia Chase from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel
12. Andy from The Office
13. Emily from The Handmaid’s Tale
14. And finally, Henry Blake from MASH
