Blind Item: The Grim Reaper's About to Claim the Life of a Beloved Leading Lady!

Get More: Blind Item, News

UPDATE: BLIND ITEM SOLVED! You know how hard you usually work to identify the subject of our blind items? You may not wanna do that today, because once you figure out who this one’s about, you’re probably not gonna like it!

You see, a longish-running (more than four seasons but fewer than nine), 60-minute series is gearing up to bump off one of its lead female stars. Even more upsetting, the soon-to-be-deceased is going to meet her maker off screen. (Her “last” episode will take place at her funeral. Closed-casket, even!)

RELATED | X-Rated Blind Item Revealed! 

That the actress in question is on her way out won’t come entirely as a shock, mind you — for a while, the writing’s been on the wall, if not on her character’s tombstone. But, since you won’t get a chance to say a proper, sorta in-person goodbye, it’s highly likely there will be a bit of backlash.

So, do you dare wager a guess as to whom is about to become roadkill? Hit the comments below.

    • It says CAR accident. Unlikely that she’d surive a car accident a few seasons ago, survive a plane crash and THEN die in ANOTHER car accident.

      • Shonda said on multiple occasions she won’t kill Addison, and would love to bring her backto Grey’s for another guest appearance before Grey’s ends too.

            Comment by Cy – September 27, 2012 07:18 PM PDT  
          • She issued another statement after Grey’s premiere aired, and said that for Addison, “her plans are wonderful”. Don’t think she’d repeat a lie so frequently in such a short amount of time, even for Shonda.

            Comment by Q – September 29, 2012 04:50 AM PDT  
      • I had the same thought but Shonda did say she wasn’t going to kill Addison. I hope she sticks to that.

    • In a new post they said no ABC show. My bet is on Cam from Bones. Angela can’t die, is way to sad.

      Comment by Olivia – October 2, 2012 06:14 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Cam and Angela aren’t leads, they’re supporting characters. Bones is a one-lead show. (Think Emmy — if she was running, would she be nominated as lead or supporting? there you go! it needs to be someone who’d be on the lead run!) Also, there’s nothing to suggest her character would be leaving like he said.

    Comment by F.R. – September 27, 2012 11:15 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • LaGuerta gets my vote (I’d prefer to see her on Dex’s table).. But with her new “investigation” to clear Doakes’ name.. And the decline of her character in the last 2 seasons.. She fits the BI pretty well.

      Comment by DarkDefender – September 27, 2012 06:21 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • “you’re probably not gonna like it!” — Laguerta? Who would care?

          • We all would. But she wasn’t that bad the first couple of seasons.. Hence the decline in character development the past few.. I can totally see an accident on her way to “out” Dexter’s hobby..

            Comment by DarkDefender – September 30, 2012 12:23 PM PDT  
      • I’d be thrilled if it were LaGuerta.

        Comment by Carla – October 15, 2012 02:08 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Anyone consider Deb instead of LaGuerta? To me this makes perfect sense…As soon as she found out Dex’s secret, there’s no place else to go but for her to die. Of course, Dexter can’t kill her, so it would be emotionally resonant if she died accidentally and this solved his ‘problem.’

      Comment by JC – October 9, 2012 12:07 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • He said that it’s a lead character whose role has “declined” — if anything, with her making Lieutenant and finding out about Dexter and all her involvement lately — she’s more in the forefront than ever.

        Comment by Carla – October 15, 2012 02:10 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Actually, no, Ausiello doesn’t say that. He says that her demise has been “writing on the wall for awhile”….like since the first season when she was on Rudy’s table and Dex almost took her out…and now, like all other characters who have learned of Dexter’s “hobby” have been killed…

          Comment by JC – October 17, 2012 09:17 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • After the latest Dexter episode, I think it could be Deb. When Dexter confronted Hannah about Sal Price’s death, Hannah said she figured he would die while driving. Could she pull the same stunt with Deb?

    • Grey’s is about to start its ninth season. I guess it is made clear in the article that the series in question existed for less than 9 years, in order to exclude that possibility.

    • hmm this certainly could be true…especially with how the season ended…making it seem like it was the air plane but maybe it was about Claudia Joy…
      I would be surprised though that he did a blind item about Army Wives…isn’t that usually reserved for network shows, or high cable ratings shows?

      Comment by Robin – September 27, 2012 02:02 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • It’s not always a network series, but I thought he hated the series and reported on it as little as possible.

        Regardless, I think this is a very likely possibility.

    Comment by kellie – September 27, 2012 11:18 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Castle only has one lead female character, and the article says ” One of its lead female characters” so I doubt it.

      Comment by TM – September 27, 2012 11:21 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I was thinking the same thing. Of course it wouldn’t be Beckett, and I’d be really sad if they killed of Alexis or Martha. But, I don’t think it would be from Castle. (Considering this is supposed to be a lighter happier season). That makes me happy because Castle is the only tv show I really care about.

      Comment by Hannah – September 27, 2012 11:24 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Beckett’s the only leading lady on Castle and it wouldn’t be a show without her. So, I think rationally it can’t be her, though I definitely had my own little jolt of fear for Beckett when reading this!

      Comment by Katherine215 – September 27, 2012 11:26 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Good thing about this item, they wouldn’t kill Beckett or Brennan (from Bones) unless it was a really, really messed up season finale.

        Comment by Barbie Furtado – September 27, 2012 11:29 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Beckett is the only leading lady on Castle? I would consider Alexis, Martha, Lanie, and Gates to all be leading ladies.

        Comment by Amanda – September 27, 2012 12:41 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • No way! Alexis and Lanie are at best regulars. They’re not leads. There are two leads on Castle. Castle and Beckett. If everyone who was regularly on the show was a lead, then the term lead would mean nothing….

          Comment by Ginny – September 27, 2012 12:53 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Disagree, completely. Ryan, Javi, Martha, and Alexis appear in EVERY episode, thus they are leads. They may not have as many scenes as Caskett, but that doesn’t make them any less leads. Lanie is recurring – she doesn’t appear as regularly. Gates I’d call a regular guest star.

            Comment by Ashleytv – September 27, 2012 01:29 PM PDT  
          • And Jon Cryer was in EVERY episode of Two and A Half Men, yet was considered a supporting actor until Charlie Sheen yet. It’s not about how often you are in the show; it’s about the size of your part! Seems pretty obvious to me… VVVVVVVVV

            Comment by Ginny – September 27, 2012 01:49 PM PDT  
          • Ginny is correct on this. Fillion and Katic are the leads on Castle. Just because you are a regular cast member, it doesn’t make you a lead.

            Comment by Alichat – September 27, 2012 02:12 PM PDT  
          • @Ginny Jon Cryer put himself in the supporting category all the years Sheen was on. He felt he had a better chance to win. Actors and actresses get to decide if they are lead or supporting. It doesn’t necessarily matter if they are in every scene or not. Just like all the Friends decided together that they were all leads. And Modern Family all decided they are supporting.

            Comment by Tori Melching (@lizjaxe) – September 27, 2012 02:28 PM PDT  
          • That’s a complete misunderstanding of the word “lead”. The “leads” are the lead characters, not characters who appear in every episode. On Bones, that’s Booth and Brennan. On The Good Wife, it’s Alicia. On Castle, it’s Beckett and Castle. On true ensemble shows, there aren’t leads, like Glee or Game of Thrones. But Castle is nowhere near an ensemble show.

            Comment by KevyB – September 28, 2012 12:06 AM PDT  
          • Exactly, from the shows that I watch, the only ensamble shows woud be Private Practice (which has been ruled out) and Criminal Minds, which has absolutely nothing to suggest anyone would leave — no writing on the wall, Tripplehorn just joined the cast. I’d safely rule out those two.

            Comment by Barbie Furtado – October 2, 2012 09:53 PM PDT  
        • Isn’t this technically based on amount of dialogue? Alexis, Martha, Lanie, and Gates, while beloved, usually have around 2-4 short scenes each episode. Castle and Beckett are leads, the rest are supporting cast.

    • Hardly — she’s already been livingly written of the show. Besides, Erica Messer said more than once that she would not kill Prentiss.

      Comment by Barbie Furtado – September 27, 2012 11:28 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It isn’t Prentiss. One of the showrunners/head writers said that she considered killing her off but that they had been-there-done-that with her fake death, so she just sent her away quietly.

    • Everyone knew the season finale was Paget’s last episode, but they’ve left it open that she could come back – they even referenced her character in last night’s season premiere. So I don’t see why they’d kill her off now.

    • “…for a while, the writing’s been on the wall, if not on her character’s tombstone”

      There has not been any iffy scenarios about Addison leaving to date. Adopting her son, having to decide between 2 lovers is not pointing to an imminent exit. It it weren’t for the fact that we know Kate Walsh is leaving, Addison would not even be in the running for this blind.

    • That would be my guess as well. She has not signed a contract for the next season and would only return in a limited capacity at best. I told my daughter at the end of the season finale that the plane didn’t crash but Claudia Joy had died!!

    • My first thought too

      Comment by emma – September 27, 2012 01:56 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I am in the Gemma camp as well. Sutter’s whole focus for the show is getting Jax to be the man Sutter envisions him to be. The fewer emotional ties he has, the less room he has to grow. He hates Clay, probably hates Tig, Opie’s gone. Plus if the goal is for Tara to replace Gemma as queen of the club, and Jax has outgrown needing a mother’s guidance, there’s not really many places for her character to go (depending how the Nero thing plays out. I love this character).

    • Sons of Anarchy waste an opportunity to kill off a character on screen and in a violent manner? No way. They are all about the on-screen death scenes.

      Comment by Alice – September 27, 2012 11:37 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • But, after this week’s upsetting death, Kurt Sutter said if there was another death in the near future, it wouldn’t be as gruesome (considering he had two really hideous on air deaths in 3 eps, I think he has filled his quota). I was thinking Gemma or Tara. I might have to stop watching if it is one of them – how could the show go on without turning Jax into a monster after something like that? I don’t care much for Tara but her and Jax’s relationship is the only heart and softness left in the show (as little as it is soft). Katey Sagal is the reason I started watching the show in the first place – I’m not loving what they have been doing with her character lately, but I would be very upset if they killed her off – but someone did point out that she is in talks to do a new show for FX, so…

        Comment by Sally – September 27, 2012 11:58 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I don’t think either would be killed off-screen and with a closed casket funeral. And while I have been mentally and emotionally preparing myself for Gemma or Tara’s deaths, I hope it’s not anytime soon (or ever! But if Katey is doing a new show, it doesn’t sound good for Gemma). They are the mother and wife of the main character and I really don’t want to see Jax suffer anymore emotional pain/devastation right now. Especially with Tara. My goodness, he doesn’t love anyone like he does her. He would be totally broken, worse than Opie was with Donna. And Tara is actually one of my favorites. I might have to take a long pause from the show if she is killed. Love the much needed layer she brings to Jax. I agree with you about what they’re doing with Gemma’s character. Not too crazy about the storyline of her war with Tara either. I knew there would be some power play but not liking much of the stuff happening.

If she dies, especially anytime soon, and knowing what it would do to Jax, I might not have the heart to keep watching :(

          • I think what Sutter has shown time and again that it doesn’t matter how much he (or fans) love a character, he’ll do what’s necessary to advance the growth and storyline of Jax (and whoever is meant to be standing next to him when it all ends – unless will end with Jax dead or alone). I still think it will be Gemma not Tara because Gemma’s storyline has more or less run its course, the way Opie’s did. The only purpose she serves is to hold Jax back, just like Opie. Plus she can’t get off scott free for JT’s death. I really don’t think she’ll live happily ever after.

            Comment by Kim – September 28, 2012 05:00 PM PDT  
        • I’m a red blooded American male who would LOVE if it was either Gemma or Tara, preferably both. So sick of this show becoming a showcase for Sutter to cram his wife down our throats. Any time an episode gains momentum, screeeeech here comes a “I’m so sad” Gemma scene followed by a “I’m so mad” Tara scene. My only beef would be if it was off camera, I prefer to see both of them go out like Tig’s daughter.

          That being said it will never happen. Sutter is too worried about making this entire show a vehicle for the Sagal family.

      • Yes, and he also said, “Depending on her schedule on SOA.” However, there is no way that Gemma would die off screen. Kurt really wants his wife to get an Emmy, and a death scene would milk all of Katey Sagal’s ACTING! skills in one shot. No, he’s holding on to that Ace.

    • Can someone explain why they think it will be Gemma? Other than saying that she is in talks for a new show, obviously she can do more than one show at a time (especially considering that her husband would be the show-runner of both). I don’t think Gemma will die, that would sever a huge story line

      Comment by A – September 27, 2012 04:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • That’s the thing A, she really doesn’t have much a storyline any more. Kurt Sutter’s goal is for Jax to shed the man he was to become the man he’s going to be. That’s why Opie had to go. By that logic I also think that’s why Gemma will probably go. Also she has to pay for her part in JT’s death. I don’t think Jax will kill her or anything, but she does have a pesky heart condition, does she not? That tableau with Jax and Tara in last season’s finale is the shape of things to come, at least that’s how I interpreted it. Tara can’t fully replace Gemma while she’s still alive. Just theories :)

        • Let’s not forget the muse for SoA is Hamlet and they all died in that. I think endgame for Sons id the death of all. Maybe the message will be Clay got them in too deep and it’s a hole Jax cannot climb out of unless he’s in a box. One by one, all will fall due to Clay’s power hungry reign.

    Don’t think it’d be anyone from Grey’s because dying in a car accident would be too banal. But if we’re talking Shondaland maybe this is how they’re planning to off Addison on PP. We all knew this would be her last season.

I think they said Ivy wouldn’t come back to wrap up sl cause there’s no need. The synopsis for 5.02 said Liam and Vanessa’s confrontation was cut short by a shocking accident though but I’m pretty sure we see the accident.Annie or Naomi maybe?

      Comment by erin – September 27, 2012 11:31 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • The showrunners NEVER wanted to get rid of JJ. They were forced to by the network; and if you’ve watched her exit show, they clearly wrote her out in a way that said, we are not happy about this, but it is over our heads. Then the fans revolted and petitioned the network and actually succeeded in bringing her back. Given the amount of bad publicity they received the last time they wrote JJ out, there is no way they would try that again. I’d say her job is safe as long as she wants it (and there’s been no evidence to show that she doesn’t).

      Comment by Charlotte – September 27, 2012 11:33 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • And, from the hints they give her, there’s never been any indication on the show that anything will happen to JJ. She hasn’t been absent, in danger, or anything like that. She’s pretty safe, I’d guess.

  • It’s Oliva from Fringe, right? =(

    • OHMIGOSH YOU COULD BE RIGHT. That makes me sad and nervous. They did say one of them was going to definitely die…

      • The writers of Fringe have too much respect for fans to kill off Olivia off screen. If one of the Fringe team dies I’m pretty sure it will be a heroic or meaningful death, not an off screen car crash.

        • ok but what if Olivia is killed off soon and doesn’t even have more than a pair of episodes in 2036? she might be killed off-screen cause her daughter is watching!

        • That is exactly the reason why I eliminated Olivia as the death. She might die, but I can’t see Wyman doing it with a car crash and a closed casket. Plus, she already died last season. My bet is on Walter for the death on Fringe.

          As for this blind item….Segal on SOA or Delaney on Army Wives seem likely bets.

          • ITA – There’s no bad blood between Anna Torv and the “Fringe” producers (who seem to adore her), so even if Olivia were to die, it would be something huge and important, not off-screen. And it would never be anything as mundane as a car crash, unless the car had come over from another dimension.

            But I think you are right about Walter.

            Comment by Annie – September 27, 2012 10:19 PM PDT  
          • I hope your wrong about Walter, but I can totally see Walter making a heroic sacrifice to try to atone. I will be sad no matter who it is, but I really hope it’s not Peter or Olivia.

  • I don’t think it will be Addison, Kate Walsh said she will have a happy ending and that she let the door open to come back in Grey’s Anatomy later ;)

    • I wish, but the show is entering it’s 9th season so it can’t be anyone from GA.

  • Addison on private practice, she already said she is leaving the show after 13 episodes in season six.

  • Doesn’t 60 minutes mean it’s cable? I mean, network shows are only 42 minutes, cable shows for longer! Just a thought!

    (There is *one* character from “fewer than nine” that I would be gutted if they died, which is JJ on Criminal Minds ,but nothing’s ever been said about her leaving, so, I guess she’s safe :)

    • I don’t think so; I think he’s drawing the distinction between a 60-minute show and a 30-minute show. And even most cable shows are in the 42-45-min range anyway…

      Comment by PFitzDC – September 27, 2012 11:36 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • My bad. I just notice pretty much every HBO/Showtime/FX shows go up to 52-55min :)

        Comment by Barbie Furtado – September 27, 2012 11:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I’m pretty sure that 42 min shows are different from 60 min shows. Example of 60 min shows: Dexter, Game of Thrones, True Blood, etc…

    • Cable shows have more commercials than broadcast. I think he was referring to a scheduled 60-minute show (as opposed to a 30-minute show.)

      Comment by verver – September 27, 2012 12:34 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I watch them commercial free and cable goes on for 52-55 (HBO, Showtime and FX) while network goes on for about 42.

        Comment by Barbie Furtado – September 27, 2012 01:36 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • FX shows goes to 42 minutes also, all cable shows do that because they have commercials. HBO, Showtime, etc go to 52 minutes because they don’t have commercials.

          Comment by V – September 27, 2012 01:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • There’s also a distinction between basic cable and premium cable. Basic cable shows like Mad Men and Breaking Bad have the standard 42 minute episodes that network shows do.

  • it better not be Addison from Private Practice! I did read that Shonda said she decided that she wasn’t going to kill her! so i doubt it’s Addison..

  • lol, I was about to suggest Maggie Smith on Downton….I guess she couldn’t have died in a car accident :-)

    Comment by Mik – September 27, 2012 11:27 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • She absolutely could have ! But Downton is not that kind of show. And it only begins its season 3.

      Comment by Em J – September 27, 2012 11:38 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It’s a 60 minute show. Each episode of Downton is 90 minutes.

    • Sure she could’ve. They have cars. There’s a problem with that though (**spoiler alert**) Julian Fellowes said he’d never kill off Maggie Smith. She’d just go on holiday somewhere and we’d hear about her. He’d love her to be able to come back if she wanted.

  • I don’t think it is Addison. If it is Addison, Shonda will need to enter the witness protection program.

    • Ahahahahahah, this made me spill out my drink. But it’s not Addison, in Ask Ausiello it’s been said it’s not someone from Private Practice nor from Greys or any other ABC show.

  • Rah ! There’s no chance it could be Declan, from Revenge !
    I don’t care if that fit with that blind item. I just want him dead !

    Comment by Ben – September 27, 2012 11:27 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I agree, Kim Delaney sounds the most likely. She was barely on this last season, and that would explain the call to Michael at the end. Plus, Shonda already said she is not killing off Addison.

    Comment by Kim – September 27, 2012 11:27 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I wonder if the 60 minutes series is a clue. If so that would make me lean more towards HBO or Showtime rather than a network series. Writing on the wall makes me think of Dexter with the blood spattering, or the title card. So Debra?

    Comment by NJM – September 27, 2012 11:27 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • That’s what I’ve been thinking. FX also goes up to almost that — Justified is 55 minutes, give or take :)

    Comment by Mo – September 27, 2012 11:28 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I was wondering if it might be someone from Glee, because the blind specifically says 60 minute show, but doesn’t say “drama”. But Quinn was JUST in a car accident, if they wanted to kill her, surely they could come up with something she hasn’t experienced yet!

    • I thought the actress threw a fit and declared she was not going to be an actress anymore. Is she still on the show or did I miss something?

      Comment by Emily – September 27, 2012 12:37 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • It says off camera. She didn’t throw a fit, she found success with her music career and decided she didn’t want to be an actress anymore. To be fair, it was a profession her parents forced her into when she was three-years-old.

    • I’ve read somewhere that her character was dying so it wouldn’t be a blind item. Moreover, it’s said ‘beloved’ and even though I find Jenny’s fun, most GG fans don’t like her

    Comment by Tanya – September 27, 2012 11:29 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Although I can imagine Olivia dying, I can’t imagine a closed casket. The series is ending so no need to make a death questionable by using the closed casket. As to who it is, I have no idea.

    • Phone call Michael got at the end of last season. My only hesitation is that I don’t know if they’ve started writing for next season yet. It’s possible though!

    Comment by Rob88 – September 27, 2012 11:30 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Dexter has so many ghosts sitting on his shoulder, if Deb dies it wouldn’t be the last we saw of her. Also, Dexter is all about how these people affect him. They would never kill someone as important as Deb and just leave it like that. I mean, even Rita got a goodbye.
