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

by at .

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...

It was as cloody and as violent as any TV death in recent memory. RIP, Tara.

    My favorite show NCIS, how could they let her go, Ziva. This new girl just does not match the character that Ziva portrayed. She looks like a lost teenager.
