Poussey - Orange Is the New Black
Of the many shocking TV deaths this year, Poussey from Orange is the New Black was definitely one of the most upsetting. Poussey was a favorite character on the show, and she'll be sorely missed. RIP.
Jessica Pearson - Suits
Jessica Pearson on Suits. We all had an idea this was coming when Gina Torres started pursuing other options, but it still hurt when it happened. And it's time to say thanks to Gina for giving us five and a half seasons of awesome leadership of Pearson Specter...whatever the hell it's called anymore.
Cat Grant - Supergirl
Cat Grant on Supergirl. Everything about the move to the CW worked in the show's favor except for losing Calista Flockhart as a series regular. She brought so much depth and humor to the character, and we definitely miss seeing her every week.
Tony DiNozzo - NCIS
I don't think fans of NCIS will ever really get over the loss of Michael Weatherly's Tony DiNozzo from the flagship series. Even though his new series, Bull, is squished between two NCIS hours on Tuesday, it's just not the same.
Glenn Rhee - The Walking Dead
Glenn was lost in a most heinous way on The Walking Dead, as retribution for Daryl's attempt to stand up against Negan after he killed Abraham. While both deaths were pointless, Glenn was with the group from the beginning and just starting a family. His desperate attempt to communicate with Maggie as he passed reminded us of his heroism and how much he would be missed, only moments later.
Aaron Hotchner - Criminal Minds
Look, Thomas Gibson deserved to be fired, but that doesn't mean we're not allowed to miss his character. We watched Hotch lead the BAU for 12 years, and then he was gone without so much as a goodbye. The situation couldn't be helped, but it still sucked.
