Note: This episode was recorded weeks prior to the Manchester tragedy. What was intended as a light and breezy consideration of fictional deaths on TV now has an unfortunate synchronicity with real world events. We would be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge this prior to you listening of this episode. Our prayers are with those impacted by this horrific violence.
In this episode, we examine and reflect on traumatic TV deaths. We look at the types of ends that come to fictional characters, the rules every writer should follow, our takes on the most talked about deaths, and our Traumatic Popcast Pantheon.

SEGMENT SPONSOR: Arc Stories podcast
The South has always marked time by its stories. They carry our history. Our fathers and grandfathers. Wars. Hunting trips. Good dogs. Great loves. Brass badges and bank robbers. Our everyday lives. The Arc Stories podcast is the celebration of that great tradition. It is the chance for our stories to move off the front porch, or from around the campfire, or out of the coffee house, and be put on stage in front of friends and strangers alike. True, Personal Stories – Told In Person.
