Saddest Deaths On TV
633 8.3 8.71. Boardwalk Empire (2010)
Many deaths (most of them very spectacular). But the really sad one was Pearl, Jimmy's whore-lover that killed herself after her face got cut, as well as his unhappy wife in second season.
UPDATE: After the totally unexpected and incredibaly sad killing of Jimmy Darmody in the final episode of the second season, this is currently my number 1 of the saddest deaths on TV.
2704 8.2 92. Dexter (2006)
Rita dead? At that moment? This way? That WAS a shock.
1508 7.6 8.83. Six Feet Under (2001)
At least one death every episode, but I mean Nate Fisher - one of the main characters. And the terrible things that had said just before...
1422 7.8 9.24. The Sopranos (1999)
Many deaths there, but the one of Adriana La Cerva SO SAD and unfair! The other very sad deaths on the show were: Christopher Moltisanti and Bobby Bacala.
P.S. Check out all the Soprano deaths here.
94 7.8 7.45. Treme (2010)
Creighton Bernette? Really? One of the best characters and one of the best actors?
1532 8.9 9.46. Game of Thrones (2011)
No one is safe in the Seven Kingdoms, but I could not believe when I saw Eddard Stark dead! Extremely unexpected and sad.
619 8 8.97. Deadwood (2004)
Wild Bill Hickock Why him? Why this way? Why so soon? (Yeah, I know it was an actual person!)
677 7.8 8.98. Oz (1997)
Many deaths again. But I'm thinking Dino Ortolani. Died in the pilot! I didn't see THAT coming!
701 8.6 9.49. The Wire (2002)
Many really sad deaths - Stringer Bell, Joe, Frank Sobotka, that young boy killed by his friends and of course Omar Little
113 7.2 7.510. The Big C (2010)
Poor Marlene. I miss her. Boy, was that sad!
1028 7.8 8.911. Rome (2005)
Julis Cesar. Not unexpected, but the way they showed it...
857 8.2 8.712. Mad Men (2007)
Anna Draper, the wife of REAL Don Draper - the saddest thing wasn't her death, but the way Don reacted after hearing about it. The best Jon Hamm's performence yet.
1065 8.7 9.413. Breaking Bad (2008)
I felt pity for Gale - he was a nice guy.
295 6.7 6.214. Brothers & Sisters (2006)
The death of the father and the husband in the pilot. It gets the series going, but you just feel for this big, wonderful family.
2187 6.4 7.215. Desperate Housewives (2004)
Edie Britt - survived when you thought she'd be dead, but killed later on. Uhm...
