Some of the saddest and best death scenes come from the un-expectation of death. Usually when we walk into a film we do not assume that someone is going to die. Then again this assumption depends on what genre of film you are going to see, what little you can gather from the commercials and of course, how the book ended.
An untimely death in a film or television show is almost a rite of passage; the longer the show is on TV, the more expectation there is for a gut-wrenching death scene. Same goes for film; the closer the characters are in the film, the higher the chance that tragedy will strike. Every once in a while, there is a death that comes along that makes you cry like a baby and grieve the loss of some fictional person who never had a soul. Scenes like that; ones that have you crying real tears, unable to stop yourself from talking about it and constantly wasting headspace on finding ways that the beloved character could have gotten out of their tragic demise are the remnants of a broken heart. Some people believe that crying over fictional characters is nonsense, unnecessary even, but they do not understand that this is the affect that a good television show or film is supposed to have on you. Since we are putting it all out there, here is a list of movies and TV shows where deaths made us question our own existence. Be warned, there are plenty of spoilers ahead and some of these spoilers may make you cry.
12 Bobby Singer – Supernatural
11 Tracy Mosby- How I Met Your Mother
10 Jack Dawson – Titanic
9 Tara Knowles – Sons of Anarchy
8 Beth – The Walking Dead
7 Rita Morgan – Dexter
6 Robbie Turner –Atonement
5 Eddard “Ned” Stark – Game of Thrones
4 Omar Little – The Wire
3 Ellie Fredricksen – Up
2 Mufasa – The Lion King
1 Every Main Character of Six Feet Under
Oh my Lord, if you are yet to experience the final six minutes of Six Feet Under, get ready to spring water like a leaky faucet. The writers for some reason thought it was a good idea to show all of the characters' future lives and deaths, all along playing some of Sia’s early, not to mention super sad music. If you do not cry when you watch this you are cold hearted or not an emotional sap like most of the world. The most gut-wrenching death to watch is Claire’s.
