17 Most Moving TV Deaths

Merle's Cruel Fate on 'Walking Dead'

Merle's death wasn't tragic because he was a great guy — he was, frankly, exactly the opposite. But the fact that he TRIED to do one good thing before he passed (violently), and then was cruelly left behind to become a Walker for his brother to kill, was just so horrifyingly evil — even for the Governor, whose "code of ethics" has a strict clause about never letting someone turn. And when Daryl Dixon cries, we all cry. {AMC}

Lori's Final Moments on 'The Walking Dead'
Lori's Final Moments on 'The Walking Dead'
AMC
Say what you will about this principle character on the AMC series, this scene was a killer. After a prison inmate leads the walkers to the group's safe zone, a pregnant Lori gets pinned down with Maggie and Carl, who are forced to perform a life-sucking c-section in order to save Lori's baby. They know this means Lori's end, and little grown-up Carl does the most heartbreaking deed: Once his mother has passed out, he delivers the fatal gunshot that will prevent her from becoming a walker. {AMC}

Every episode of Six Feet Under started with a death, so the audience was no stranger to watching characters large and small keel over. But when Nate Fisher, the central character of this morbid show, bought the farm unexpectedly, it was still a tragic shock. His funeral was even sadder than some real ones we've been to. {HBO}

And here it is: the saddest death in TV history. It wasn't so much how Seymour the dog died that was so heartbreaking, but how he lived. After his owner and best friend Philip J. Fry was cryogenically frozen, not to be awakened for a 1000 years, Seymour waited for him to return. For 12 years. The pup's loyalty kept him on the sidewalk outside of Fry's workplace for over a decade, waiting patiently, but sadly, for his best friend did not return. {Fox}
