9Walter White, Breaking Bad
One of the most highly acclaimed and watched shows in Television, no one argued that the death of Walter White was a shock. There was always the chance he would go the way of pearly gates, but one could always hope that the teacher turned drug dealer would save
the day and still be able to live. He was able to do a few things before dying including saving Jesse and getting the money back to his family. He was a true anti-hero, which are always the easiest to watch go. You loved to hate the guy, but you are still sorry to see the character's demise.
