Greatest Unforeseen Deaths in Science Fiction Movies and TV Shows

POSTED BY chrisdvanne ON Oct 05, 2011 / 0 COMMENTS

Greatest Random Out-of-Nowhere Deaths in Science Fiction and Fantasy : New list from Charlie Jane Anders at Io9.
A few examples are taken from Terminator : The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Firefly and Summer Glau (these are the only extract i quote below, feel free to visit the page for further videos and quotes).

Quote (Charlie Jane Anders)
The great thing about science fiction and fantasy is that they're full of surprises — you just never know what the universe will have in store. Like, sometimes, a totally random, surprising, shocking death.

  • Russell Franklin from Deep Blue Sea
  • Ilana from Lost
  • Doc Arzt from Lost
  • Clemens in Alien 3
  • Cedric Diggory in the Harry Potter series
  • Nan on True Blood
  • Carolyn Fry in Pitch Black
  • Donald Gennaro, That Lawyer on the Toilet in Jurassic Park
  • The guy jumping off a building in Kick-Ass
  • Tara in Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  • Wash in Serenity
    Speaking of Joss and random deaths... At least Wash gets to go out at his moment of maximum greatness, when he's just proved how amazing he really is. With the flying, and the nerves of steel, and the cool catchphrase. And then — zoink. There's also poor Shepherd Book, but we all sorta saw that one coming.

  • Ballard on Dollhouse
    And rounding out the Whedon trifecta, there's poor Paul Ballard, who finally got to be with the woman he loved, even though his love for her had been scooped out of his brain, but he still was going to make it work, we felt reasonably sure. And then — boom. There's also Summer Glau's random headshot in the previous episode. Basically, a surprising death is never really a surprise in a Joss Whedon show or movie.
  • The Guy Getting Eaten by the Underground Monster in Big Trouble in Little China
  • Derek Reese on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
    He's managed to outsmart those metal bastards on many different occasions, but all of a sudden one of them catches up to him when we least expect it. The Terminator blows Uncle Derek away and barely misses a step.
  • Bill Murray in Zombieland
  • The Urban Free Flow Gang in Punisher: War Zone
  • The Warrior Woman in Mad Max II: The Road Warrior
  • Tasha Yar in Star Trek: The Next Generation
  • Trip Tucker in Star Trek: Enterprise
  • Dan Turpin in Superman: The Animated Series
  • A certain person in A Dance With Dragons
  • Janet Fraiser on Stargate SG-1
