With two recent surprise deaths (R.I.P., Derek and Kutner), we were inspired to look back at some others that caught us off-guard in the same way. We're not talking J.R. Ewing (who lived, anyway) back in the day, or even Adriana on The Sopranos -- these are the recent out-of-left-field deaths that surprised us so much we had our jaws hanging on the floor. In some cases (Prison Break, 24 and Lost) we could practically have created 10 "wow" deaths from each show, that's how much they like blindsiding fans. (Not nice, for the record.) But we decided to spread the wealth as we present our list of the most shocking deaths of the last few seasons. Fair warning: There might be info that some of you may consider spoilers, if you aren't caught up on your TV viewing.
When Glee star Cory Monteith passed away on July 13 at the too-young age of 31 due to a lethal combination of drugs and alcohol, many wondered how the show would deal with his shocking death. While the original concept from creator Ryan Murphy was to directly address the actor's drug issue, the episode called "The Quarterback" -- which airs this Thursday -- will now simply pay tribute to the beloved character of Finn Hudson. While we don't know yet how his character will have died, or if the show will ever tell us, Glee will say goodbye to both Finn and Cory the best way they know how: by singing about it. The episode will feature a series of musical goodbyes, including a number from Monteith's on and off-screen love Lea Michele.
