In Memoriam: A Final Farewell to the Characters We Hated Losing in 2016

The Grim Reaper didn’t shy away from looming over fictional worlds in 2016, and he took, took, and took some more.  The deaths were heartbreaking, and some were quite controversial, and our hearts are still shattered.

In no particular order, here are the characters that we hated saying goodbye to in 2016.  If you hear crying, it’s probably us.
