7 Fictional Characters Who Deserved So Much Better

Lionsgate/Warner Bros.


Nothing in life is as certain as this one salient truth: your favorite character is going to die. They are the only pure thing left in this godforsaken world, but they are going to die as surely as the sun is coming out tomorrow. 

Here’s to all the characters we knew were going to die (hello, foreshadowing!), and here’s to those whose untimely deaths took us completely by surprise. Most of all, here’s to the characters who deserved better than to meet their fate just because the author had some points to make about innocence and the destruction thereof. (Looking at you, J.K. Rowling, you witch of sadness.)
