Every so often a character comes onto our screen who is so innocent, good, and pure that they might as well be asking to get killed.
Here, we remember some of the characters who came onto our favorite TV shows spreading light, hope, and love, but who ultimately had to bow out.

On this list, are characters who grew out of blind naivete, were open to new and weird things around them, and who showed dedication to those they cared about.
Here are 29 characters who were just too good to last.
Poussey Washington (Orange is the New Black)
Of all the Litchfield inmates, Poussey Washington tended to fly under the radar the most. While she definitely had a presence, she seemed to genuinely want to just serve her time and be released. Unfortunately, she died during a peaceful protest during Orange is the New Black Season 4.
Adam Masters (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina)
Adam Masters only appeared during three episodes of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part II and was the poor sap who didn't realize his fiance was possessed by Madam Satan. Still, he was an oddly trusting character who was sure to meet his end someway, somehow, during the season. We just didn't expect Satan himself, to kill him, cook him, and feed him to Lilith.
Petronella Osgood (Doctor Who)
Petronella Osgood was a U.N.I.T scientist who had hero-type worship of The Doctor, praying to him in times of danger. Osgood and her Zygon twin were indistinguishable from one another until one of them was killed by Missy on Doctor Who Season 8 Episode 12, "Death in Heaven." There's no way of knowing which one died in that encounter, but Osgood was such a pure character that losing either was a travesty.
Monty Green and Harper McIntyre (The 100)
Monty and Harper were two characters on The 100 who never actively looked for trouble. They were two characters who were tired of fighting and chose each other, and happiness. Their death at the end of The 100 Season 5 was peaceful and fitting for how they'd conducted themselves as part of the group, but still heartbreaking.
Jack Pearson (This Is Us)
Oh Jack, you had a troubled past, but you were such a good dad that a crockpot had to kill you. Jack was the kind of dad that his kids idolized and who would do anything for his family. His death when the triplets were seventeen felt like the universe giving the Pearson family the finger.
Hope Shlottman (Jessica Jones)
Hope's life would have been much different if she hadn't met Kilgrave. For one thing, she might still be alive. During Jessica Jones Season 1, she was placed under Kilgrave's mind control as a way to get to Jessica. She later sacrificed herself so that Jessica could stop him.
