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

by 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...

PLEASE bring Ziva back. The new chick does NOT make it. She's dead!!

Ziva left to have a life. She is 35 and wanted to spend time with family. CBS offered her loads on money (millions) to stay. She declined. Since she is technically in Israel she can come back. They only kill off the people they don't like or if they are going to go the "twin" thing like soap operas do.

That is not true. Don't believe everything you hear and read, especially when it comes from the show runners at CBS. She did not leave to spend time with family. She was born in Chile but raised in the United States and makes her permanent home in New York where she lives with her boyfriend. Cote left (on her terms) after months of contract negotiations came to an impasse with the show runners regarding not only money but length of contract. She didn't want to be bound by a multi-year contract, but they wouldn't budge on that, so she walked away (with her dignity intact).

You know that bitch ain't dead. Katherine Pierce always survives, especially now since the Travelers are the big bad of this season: KP is a traveler and a doppelgänger. Just when you think she's gone, she isn't. My money is that she'll pop up on the season finale.

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.
