9 TV Characters We Still Can't Believe Have Left Us

by at . Comments

Some were killed off. Some left because their portrayers wanted off; others because their networks wanted a change.

But with TV season in a bit of a lull at the moment (darn you, Winter Olympics!), this seemed like an ideal time to take stock of characters we've lost over the past few months.

From biker wives to surgical interns, community college students to misguided witches, here is a look at a handful of men and women who we still can't believe are gone...

Troy Barnes
Donald Glover left Community to pursue his rapping career. He took his beloved character with him.

I am glad to finally find out why Viva is not on the show anymore but she made that special sparkle in the show that just isn't there anymore. We miss her so very much. I hope she'll come back also but I really hope she is happy wherever she is now.

Ziva should have appeared at the wake and funeral of Gibbs Dad
that would have told us that there is an offering....but she didn't appear

Now, wait a minute. I loved the actress who played Ziva and I miss her every much of the rest of you BUT! I still like the theme of the story line--the relationship of the characters. They work together, care for each other, it is very "family" oriented, I know--it's guns, killing, intrigue, but the characters are in a working situation and they care for each other. Today that means something. They are not out to cut one an others throat for a higher position or the like. I like all the cast and the story line and how it's carried out. I didn't watch it only because of the Ziva character, I like the whole cast, story line and how it's portrayed.

I too love The Character "Ziva". The only problem for me, is how to resurrect her back into an active Agent with NCIS.? One of Gibbs rules. Do not to get emotionally involved with a colleague. In this case Tony Denozo. Yes, I secretly wanted Tony to kiss Ziva. Mentally thinking it was I. She is gorgeous. Especially when she dresses up. Like the scene where she is a Singer in that Green Dress. Showing those most becoming dimples on her lower back. Just above her butt. Most sexy ever. Yes, I agree Ms Johnson. Bring Ziva back. Get rid of the blonde character who never sits in a chair. Or at least make her a "Red Head". Spice it up for Gibbs and Tobias of the FBI character.
