9. Villanelle in Killing Eve

Killing Eve came to an end in 2022, and it wasn’t in a good way. It was one of those shows that brought us the “Bury Your Gays” trope. Okay, so admittedly, as the antagonist for so long, death was coming, but it didn’t stop it from hurting.

The worst part was the manner in which she was killed. Villanelle found her happiness with Eve just as a sniper shot her from a distance. Was that really necessary? Couldn’t we get one happy ending?

8. Jess LaCroix in FBI: Most Wanted

When it comes to crime dramas, we know that deaths can happen. Being in the FBI is dangerous, especially for those going after the Most Wanted killers. So, we knew that Jess LaCroix and his team constantly put their lives on the line. In fact, Crosby had almost lost his life in the Season 3 premiere.

Julian McMahon decided to leave FBI: Most Wanted during Season 3. That led to a decision to write him out permanently. Just as he was talking about taking a dream vacation with Sarah, he was killed in the line of duty. At least his work wife was there with him at the end.

7. Hawkins in Chicago Fire

There have been a few deaths in Chicago Fire over the years, and they’ve all hit hard. In 2022, we said goodbye to someone for what seems like absolutely no reason except to cause pain for a character. One of the more senseless TV deaths was Chief Evan Hawkins.

He was in a burning building trying to save people when a beam fell down on top of him. Boden had ordered everyone out of the building at the time so nobody could do anything about it. By the time they go in, he was dead, and we were devastated for Violet considering the two had just got back together. Can Chicago Fire give us more happy couples, please?
