13 TV Characters Who Never Got a Funeral (And Should Have)

When a character dies, the people on the show aren't the only ones who are in mourning. 

The audience also becomes invested in the characters, and need proper closure in order for their deaths to truly serve as an end to their story.

There are some major characters who never had an on-screen wake, which leaves viewers feeling unsatisfyed with how everything wrapped up. 

We created a slideshow below of 13 TV characters who didn't get a proper funeral, and should have. 

1. Allison Argent - Teen Wolf

Allison Argent - Teen Wolf
Allison Argent was singlehandedly the inspiration for this slideshow. She was a main character since the very first episode of Teen Wolf, and the lack of an onscreen funeral is something fans are still bitter about to this day.

2. Mark Sloan and Lexie Grey - Grey's Anatomy

Mark Sloan and Lexie Grey - Grey's Anatomy
We appreciated that the hospital was named after Mark and Lexie, but an onscreen funeral to pay tribute to two major characters felt necessary. But then again, countless people have died on the show and it's rare to witness any funerals at all.

3. Poussey Washington - Orange is the New Black

Poussey Washington - Orange is the New Black
Poussey's inmates may have created a makeshift memorial, but she deserved a proper funeral and the prison should have provided it. Of course, they never would have done so, but Poussey was such a kind and pure soul who never should have been killed in such a brutal way to begin with.

4. Guinevere Beck - YOU

Guinevere Beck - YOU
Beck was the protagonist of the series and her death felt extremely sudden. One minute she was alive and the next her psycho boyfriend had killed her. A funeral would have been a good way to make her death feel more real.

5. Commander Lexa - The 100

Commander Lexa - The 100
Commanders don't get funerals. They get a chip cut out of their neck and their spirit placed in the next leader. But after everything Lexa had done for her people, it felt like she deserved more than a ritual.

6. Ellen and Jo Harvelle - Supernatural

Ellen and Jo Harvelle - Supernatural
It's been a decade and we're still not over Ellen and Jo's death. Their bodies were blown up so it's not like they could have had a proper burial, but it would have been nice for Sam and Dean to find a way to give them a makeshift funeral.

7. Daenerys Targaryen - Game of Thrones

Daenerys Targaryen - Game of Thrones
There may not have been time to see a funeral, but Daenerys deserved one. Despite everything that happened, Daenerys was still a fan favorite character who deserved better than the hand she was dealt.

8. Eddie Thawne - The Flash

Eddie Thawne - The Flash
To this day, Eddie Thawne is still one of the best characters to ever exist on The Flash. He killed himself to keep everyone safe, and he deserved better than having his body sucked into a giant black hole.

9. Glenn Rhee - The Walking Dead

Glenn Rhee - The Walking Dead
There's not really a way to have a proper funeral on The Walking Dead but we still wish we got one. Glenn was by far one of the best characters on the show, and his death was both pointless and painful.

10. Bradley Jenkins - The Resident

Bradley Jenkins - The Resident
Patients die all the time, but Bradley was no ordinary patient. He was a former doctor and close friends with everyone at Chastain. If wasting screentime was a concern, his funeral also could have also stirred up some more Quovadis-related drama.

11. Klaus and Elijah Mikaelson - The Originals

Klaus and Elijah Mikaelson - The Originals
Klaus and Elijah made the ultimate sacrifice by choosing to die in the series finale. They may be undead and there may not have been an opportunity for a funeral right there, but their deaths felt underserved and a funeral featuring Caroline would have helped our hearts heal.

12. Amberle Elessedil - The Shannara Chronicles

Amberle Elessedil - The Shannara Chronicles
This one's tricky because while Amberle isn't technically dead, she might as well be. Her soul is trapped inside of a tree and she has become one with the Elcrys. Everyone is thankful for her sacrifice, but considering she's a main character, we wanted more. A real funeral would have helped us accept that she's actually gone, rather than holding out hope for a return.

13. Tracy McConnell - How I Met Your Mother

Tracy McConnell - How I Met Your Mother
You would think that Tracy's death would be a bigger deal considering that the whole series was supposed to be about Ted's journey to find his wife. But there was just a line or two about her passing without any substance whatsoever.
