Which death hit you the hardest? Which left an ever-lasting impression? Which made you create a doll of the showrunner in question to burn in effigy as you cried yourself to sleep every night very sad?

Elena (The Vampire Diaries). She was the main death to come in the season's finale and it was very sad to watch her sacrificing herself for Matt as to redeem her father's sacrifice.


Wow - no one died in any of the shows I watch. That I can recall.

Mark, Lexie, and Henry on Grey's. All of them made me cry like a baby.
