Shocking TV Deaths of 2008-09

Buzz In: Which of This Year's TV Deaths Was Most Shocking?

With the passing of every TV season, we viewers have to say goodbye to a few characters we've come to love over the years. Typically, such deaths range from mildly unexpected to completely, thoroughly, "Wait, what did I just see?" stunning. So I'm wondering: Which of this season's television deaths did you find the most shocking?

(I probably don't have to tell you this, but: beware of spoilers in the comments!)

Definitely Kutner. :(

Kutner. The sheer fact that there was nothing on the internet. With George/Izzy there were rumors flying around every other day.

Definitely Kutner, George even though we dont know if he's dead and Jimmy from Smallville. Also Faraday from Lost, I was surprised when he was killed off.

Edie on Desperate Housewives was just stupid.

agree with Advah - without edie in DH, it does seem quite dull now.... i don't watch house, so i have no idea who kutner is. :) regarding lost - i suppose faraday, but i saw it coming. grey's- georgie. well, even though we don't know he's officially dead.

Kutner, because it was so sudden and there was no profiling of his character in prior episodes (that usually leads up to major character deaths). Faraday is a close second, only because I thought for sure he would be a major player in the last season of Lost.

without a doubt Kutner. and i agree with star, i didnt think they would kill george! i thought him joining the military wasa good enough to excuse him from the show! and although we knew forever that izzie was going to die i still cried. alot.

Faraday :(

Kutner. I really hated the way they had him go. It should have been some other way.

I'm going to go with Faraday as well. We don't know for sure that George or Juliet are dead (though it would seem likely for the former)...I'm holding out hope until TRK and KH's contracts aren't renewed.

definately kutner. just because there wasnt anything online about him leaving - no drama on set to read about, media speculation. all the back story stuff from greys really took out the shock factor of the season finale for me. also i am sad about juliet. and if for any reason sayid doesnt make it, well that will be shocking as all heck!

Nicolette Sheridan/Edie. I mean, I'd read about it before seeing the ep, but DH without feels somehow wrong and boring. Why oh why did I read this thread?! Everytime I can't keep myself off spoilers, and then I kick myself for reading the comments!

Wait, I don't get it. The Kutner we're talking about is the guy from House MD, no? Because jadenirvana says that 'she' reminds her of Zoe Deschanel. I'm confused now...

For me, it was George. I just assumed they would send him off to Iraq and he'd either get killed there, or just never come back (or maybe come back for the series finale). I was just as shocked as Meredith!

I wasn't very happy about Bill Buchanan.

Kutner! I absolutely loved her and hoped she would be around. She has that kooky-smart sexy vibe like Zooey Daschenel (sic.) Very sad she died so soon. I didn't really like Gran dying either! She was a doll, and I think she had hidden secrets.

Kutner for sure, but I agree with Brian Austin Green's character on T:SCC as well. I don't even watch the show, but I saw that and It was so nonchalant like he wasn't a huge character in the series.

Kutner. And George... I mean I knew he was leaving the show but they way the killed him shocked me. I just really though he was going to leave for the military.
