In honor of DeLuca’s death and the many that have come before it, the E! News staff looked back on some of the other TV deaths that we’re still mad about, months or years after we first watched them. Spoilers follow, obviously.
Marissa Cooper (Mischa Barton), The OC
That episode aired in 2006, but I still remember crying as the song “Hallelujah” played when Ryan carried her out of the car. Marissa’s death also marked the end of the show, as we knew it, anyway. There was one more season after that, but it felt more like an epilogue than the show we once loved. I still re-watch the show with my brother whenever we can, but we always stop after Season 3 since that was true end of the show at its peak. —Marenah Dobin
Will Gardner (Josh Charles), The Good Wife
Whenever anyone asks which death caught us the most off guard, this is the first one we think of. Definitely did not see it coming, and we have never recovered.
William Hill (Ron Cephas Jones), This Is Us
“My next door neighbor heard me crying so hard they were…concerned.” —Alyssa Ray
