for me it has to be Cordelia as one of the longest running charcher in this buffyverse, allow freds was really sad and shocking too
The WB (ended 2004)
|but i'm a guy so we don't cry at stuff that hapens on tv or at least not when we're in company.|
Speak for yourself. My wife and I (actually, she was my girlfriend at the time) both cried like hungry, angry babies when Fred died. And Wes, for that matter.
Never let society's expectations of you dictate your behavior.
Clarification: I should point out that I'm not criticizing anyone just because they don't cry at TV shows. I just hate to see people who honestly believe that they shouldn't express emotion because they are male. I think that the Western idea of "manly" behavior tends to create emotional cripples who talk with their fists and cry bullets, and I think it's important that we men think (and feel) for ourselves.
Honestly not being moved to cry is one thing. But deciding not to because of some arbitrary cultural ideal is something else entirely.
|Darla... Her death in season 3 was one of the sadest things ever...|
IMO, Wesley was the saddest, but I also think Darla's death is one of the saddest, and one of the greatest scenes of Angel.
"You died in an alley. Remember?
Dudes, without a doubt the saddest death was Wesley. Because it was so unexpected! Why dammit! And the fact that wesley has previously told Illyria to never impersonate Fred, but does as his last dying wish is heart wrenching. And that beautiful scene when Wesley is in Illyria/Fred's arms, where we see such a powerful love!
Wesley was the best character on the whole show!
|Doyle's was just BA.... What is upsetting me is that this poll doesn't even have Lyla on there. She had been getting progressively more popular and on the verge of redemption when Cordelia murdered her. Then to top that... crazy Wesley had to chop her head off thinking she would turn into a vampire.|
But Lilah's death wasn't sad at all. It was designed to shock people. The other's like Wesley's. Fred's, Darla's, Cordy's and Doyle's were all loved characters and their deaths were designed to be sad with all the special speeches and tears. So Lilah's doesn't really rank as one of the saddest deaths. Sorry but thats my opinion.
