Fans tune in to their favorite shows week after week to watch the characters grow and plot arcs develop. Even though everyone knows it’s fictional, it’s very easy to become attached and even possessive. When a show doesn’t go the way you envisioned it, you feel cheated. When a character does something that you feel doesn’t live up to their character, you feel betrayed. And when your favorite character (close your eyes, kids) dies, you have even been known to go into mourning. The first stage of mourning TV characters is to light Twitter on fire with millions of others to ask questions, demand answers, beg for the writers to reconsider (even though it’s already done) and shout thinly veiled expletives with at least a dozen punctuation marks.

Sometimes, though, the death of a TV character has brought millions of people great joy. Whether they were villains or just characters whose plots ran dry, great shows are littered with characters who overstayed their welcome. The following list discusses 10 deaths of television characters who most fans were thrilled to finally get to say goodbye to. Major spoiler alerts for various shows throughout the past fifteen years’ worth of on-screen moments.

10 Nikki & Paulo on Lost

9 Bill Henrickson

8 Marissa from The OC

7 Lori from The Walking Dead

6 Adriana on The Sopranos

5 Clay on Sons Of Anarchy

4 Andrea on The Walking Dead

3 Brody from Homeland

2 Hank from Breaking Bad

1 King Joffrey

Game of Thrones is infamous for killing off its most popular and beloved characters with little to no warning, sending the internet into a tizzy that is almost as enjoyable to watch as the show itself. But Sunday night, the writers of the show killed off possibly the most hated character in recent TV history when King Joffrey was poisoned on his wedding day and died in his mother’s arms. The scene came as a huge surprise to viewers (for those who haven’t read the books, anyway) and had them rushing to the internet to collectively scream, “Finally!”
