These series characters left too early while they were still under the elbow
Was there really no way to give them even a little reprieve?
We start to know the music: we do everything to make you attach to a character and when you make a small place in your heart next to your mother and your cat, we rip you all shamelessly . The worst thing is that you’re maso because you come back every time. In fact you know very well that with time, the pain subsides, and that other characters will come to do the taf. Even if in hindsight, certain deaths seem to you really precipitated. The guys down there still had a role to play, I’m sure! (Attention spoilers!)

Harry “Opie” Winston (Sons of Anarchy)
After a brief period of mechanics, “Opie” will quickly return to service within the Club. To the point of becoming one of the pillars of SAMCRO and more generally of the series.

Gustavo Fring (Breaking Bad)
Perhaps one of the most charismatic villains in the history of TV series. Gustavo, it’s a chartered accountant to whom you would give the good Lord, if beside that, he ordered no executions between two chicken menus in Los Pollos Hermanos. Attention to detail, his death has become a cult cult element. We would have liked her to intervene a little later …
We had to bump who instead? Hmmm …. Gustavo, not the choice.
