    1. Sid (Knots Landing)
    This one made me real sad when I first watched it as I didn't see it coming at all and I loved Karen and Sid as a couple.

    2. April (Dallas)
    This one really upset me when I was a child. I was so sad and angry that April had been killed off that I swore that I'd never go to Paris. But of course I did anyway...

    3. Jock (Dallas)
    I love the way his death was handled on the show and the episode The Search was a perfect tribute both to the character and actor

    4. Bobby (Dallas)
    If it hadn't been a dream this would have made me cry like a baby I'm sure. The perfect tragedy

    5. Maggie (Falcon Crest)
    I remember watching this as a child and it scared me how she got stuck in the pool with her ring.

    6. Cecil (Dynasty)
    I think that's the only time I've seen the widow wearing a wedding veil at the time of the death! Such a camp moment!

    7. Joshua (Knots Landing)
    I really liked his character at first. It's a shame they made him crazy as he and Cathy were a cute couple and I liked Val having a brother

    8. Rebecca Wentworth (Dallas)
    This scene really got to me as well. So sad how Pam had one last conversation with her mother in the hospital before she died.

    9. Melissa (Falcon Crest)
    I loved Melissa and Lance and was sad when they killed her off.

    10. Digger Barnes (Dallas)
    What a death bed confession he gave. It changed everything when Pam wasn't a Barnes after all!


    Also I can't include it since she didn't die but I want to give a special mentioning to the scene where Krystina collapsed on her rocking chair pony on Dynasty. I saw that when I was maybe 13 the first time and that moment stuck with me as it was so scary!

    P.S. I also want to mention what I think is possibly the best death scene of a TV-series ever, Claire on McLeod's Daughers. Her death just made me cry like a baby. Really. D.S.

    I have no idea what to do now. I thought I'd done it right. So you have to see the death for it to be accountable?

    Just change your ten to those who were killed onscreen. If you don't have enough, then just shorten your list.

    Killed? Can they not just die peacefully?

    Emily suffered a spontanous death triggered by bad writing.

    Here are soapchat's favourite soap-death scenes:

    1. Maggie Gioberti (Falcon Crest) - 108 points.
    Ironically, the un-soapiest death of all.
    upload_2017-8-9_23-36-17.png
    Just like ex-husband Chase and son Cole, her story ended in the water.

    2. Sid Fairgate (Knots Landing) - 78 points.
    3. Bobby Ewing (Dallas) - 72 points.
    4. Joshua Rush (Knots Landing) - 61 points.
    5. Chip Roberts (Knots Landing) - 59 points.
    6. JR Ewing (TNT Dallas) - 49 points.
    7. Digger Barnes (Dallas) - 46 points.
    8. April Stevens (Dallas) - 42 points.
    9. Cecil Colby (Dynasty) - 33 points.
    10. Mickey Trotter (Dallas) / Dr. Mitch Ackerman (Knots Landing) - 31 points.

    I think it's a great list of dramatic, exciting and sad moments.

    All those wonderful characters we'll never forget.

    But then...sometimes...



    they come back.
