The end of the spring TV season is usually met with tears due to cancelations, character deaths, actor exits, and shocking cliffhangers.
This Spring, writers held no qualms about killing off main characters, or writing off characters in general, and we saw many of our beloved ones either meet their fate or see the door out.
Some were shocking, like Ziva David's death in NCIS, and some were not, but they remain sad just the same.
Below is a list of some of the characters we'll miss the most in the upcoming fall season.
Who were you saddest to see take their leave? Let us know in the comments, as well as your choices that didn't quite make the list!
Callie Torres - Grey's Anatomy
Sometimes it is easy to forget that Callie Torres wasn't one of the original Grey's Anatomy cast members. She's been around almost as long and has become an integral part of the core. Her energy and humor will be missed, but at least she's still alive, so there's hope we will see her again someday!
Tony DiNozzo - NCIS
Very Special Agent Tony DiNozza was on NCIS from the very first episode. His smart-ass antics made us laugh which made it all the more touching when we watched him mourn good friends like Kate Todd and Director Jenny Shepherd. Tony was both fun and complicated in his own way. We always hoped he'd find happiness but we never expected that it would be through a daughter he never knew he had. We're truly going to miss him and NCIS certainly won't be the same without him.
Lexa - The 100
Lexa met her fate by way of a stray bullet, shot by the one person who was supposed to always protect her. The Commander deserved a more fitting end for a warrior that fought so hard to save the Sky people who had done nothing but murder her own before her death.
Laurel Lance/Black Canary - Arrow
Laurel didn't survive Arrow Season 4 Episode 18. She became a victim of Damien Darhk, the catalyst to plunge the other characters, but mostly Oliver and her father, into a darkness that finished the season. She had just become the Black Canary, just stepped into the role of hero in the light and the shadows, but I guess she had to go because Oliver was struggling to be a hero in the light, whereas Laurel embraced it so easily.
Juliette Barnes - Nashville
Her plane never landed on the Nashville Season Finale. She never reunited with her family after she had already given up an Oscar nomination and possibly her career by admitting the role she played in Jeff Fordham's heroic death. Even though Nashville might be renewed over at CMT, we have to assume her plane crashed, as we were left with nothing but the fact that it had sent out a distress signal. We're going to miss our favorite drama queen.
Leonard Snart - Legends of Tomorrow
Sure, Leonard Snart will be sticking around all of the DC shows as a full time rover. But it's the unevolved Leonart Snart. Captain Cold. The guy who hasn't learned he has more to offer the world than smartass comments and his badass criminal's skills. Will his memories of the missing time ever come back to him the way they do on 12 Monkeys? I sure hope so. If not, he's the character I'll miss the most.
