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

at .  Updated at . Comments

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

But the reasons behind their loss does little to dull our pain. We still miss them. We still grieve for them. We still wish things could have been different.

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

DID WE MISS ANYONE? WHICH RECENTLY-DEPARTED TELEVISION CHARACTER AR YOU MISSING THE MOST THESE DAYS?

Please give Cote whatever she wants and bring her back. Ziva was one of the best female characters on TV and we need to see strong women. I prefer to watch re-runs with Ziva then to watch the new shows.

Prince Oberyn Martell was 'no match for the Mountain'? Did whoever wrote this actually watch the series? The Red Viper completely outclassed the Mountain during Tyrion's trial. He was far quicker, far more skilled and spent most of the fight simply dodging the Mountain's attacks and slowly cutting him down. Gregor Clegane was little more than a giant, sluggish oaf relying on brute strength - easy prey for a nimble spearman. Oberyn only lost because his desire for revenge clouded his better judgement - Oberyn's tragedy was that had he not been bent on extracting a confession and nailing the Lannisters he could have easily killed the Mountain in an instant. The Mountain's 'victory' was a fluke.

Sara Lance..."her death was quickly accepted into the Arrow Fandom...NOT ...there was not one good reason to get rid of Sara except to move the story along...another female actor loses her part all because the show runners needed a plot device. Sara Lance, actor Caity Lotz, was an extremely strong LGTBQ female character and Caity Lotz, a role model, something that does not happen often in tv lately. The younger generations need to see those characters in mainstream tv.

Ziva was a super character for NCIS. She made me laugh when Tony D tried to sway her and she gave it back to him. I really miss her on the show and like the other comments, the new girl on the block is not cutting it. Ziva, if you can find it in your heart to return to NCIS please do. CBS you've made a lot of $$ with her character, pay her what's due.

Why was Sasha Alexander (Caitlin Todd) killed off, I really missed her? Usually when someone gets replaced on a TV programme they are not as could as the original, but Cote de Pablo (Ziva David) fitted right in. I'm told the new lady that took over from Cote de Pablo (which I have not seen yet) is not that good. I would still like to know why Sasha left though. I did she a clip with Cote when she said she would like to try other options, with Sasha nothing was explained.
