It sucks when our favorite characters leave. Heck, it sucks when characters we just met leave.
Let's admit characters exits can be some of worst moments on television, but how they go out can make for some of the best viewing. They're exits dramatically effecting the series or ones you'll remember for years to come.
When we put together our TV Fanatic staff picks for the best character exits, the answers started pouring in.
One character was a blink and you miss it appearance but, but so amazingly perfect Twitter lit up with discussion. There were momentous deaths by terribly violence, sweet losses after a long illness and the need to finally switch things up and make a positive change (we're looking at you, Cristina Yang).
Flip through our slideshow of the best character exits of 2014 and then vote in our poll and/or in the comments.
