It happens in TV land: characters get killed off. Why? Well, there’s more than one reason for why script writers kill off a main character. Sometimes, the actor can’t continue filming (whether voluntarily or not) and the writers need to end the character’s life out of necessity. But then sometimes, the writers want to kill someone off for dramatic effect or to go with the story line.
Let’s go through some of the more memorable TV deaths that all had us talking about it the next day at the water cooler, the lockers, or on the phone with a friend. Which one was the most shocking for you?
Adriana La Cerva (The Sopranos)
How can anyone forget that dreadful car ride when Adriana La Cerva, the long suffering girlfriend of Christopher, was in the car with Silvio? Just the way he nonchalantly tells her that Christopher will be okay after she’s gone while she’s crying silently is enough to make you weep.
As they continue to drive our hopes continue to fall. The car eventually stops in the middle of some place in New Jersey, and Adriana pleads for her life. But Silvio had a job to do and he completed his mission. It was tragic and most of us hoped it wouldn’t be. But it was.
