New York Magazine’s Vulture blog counts down ten beloved characters who didn’t deserve to die. Wash’s Serenity is the only real genre character on the list, but Samuel L. Jackson’s hilarious end in Deep Blue Sea and Vincent Vega in Pulp Fiction are also contenders.
With that in mind, what sudden character death (outside of Star Wars) still haunts you? (Seriously, if you post any Legacy of the Force spoilers in this thread, I will cut you. Okay, maybe not. Just delete them. But I’m sure there’s a sidebar poll in this about six months down the line.)
