TVLine is looking back at some of the most polarizing TV departures of all time.
We’re talking about those truly “WTF” character departures that either had you screaming at your TV in disgust or desperately Googling in confusion. From unnecessary deaths on shows like Veronica Mars and Buffy the Vampire Slayer to unceremonious exits on shows like Lizzie McGuire and Law & Order: SVU, we’ve assembled 15 of TV’s messiest conclusions.
(Quick disclaimer: Because we’re discussing major exits from more than a dozen TV shows, it should go without saying that this gallery is a spoiler minefield. You’ve been warned.)
Check out our list below, then drop a comment with your own additions. Which befuddling character departures would you add?
