We all have our favorite television shows, and as the seasons go by, we become more and more engrossed in the lives of the characters. Showrunners have pulled the rug out from under us many times before by unexpectedly rubbing a character out. Wants some examples? Here are some of our favorite characters who we were sad to say goodbye to.
Scandal’s Harrison Wright
It took a while for Columbus Short’s career to really take off, but last year he was living on top of the world thanks to his role as Harrison Wright on Scandal. Unfortunately for Short, his private life started making headlines of its own, much to the dismay of creator Shonda Rhimes. Short got to be too much of a distraction and after a couple of arrests in a short time span, Rhimes didn’t have much of a choice but to write him off the show. After the season three finale cliffhanger, we wondered if that was the last we were going to see of Wright. That was cleared up the next season when his character was laid to rest.
