The 25 Most Devastating Character Deaths In TV History

15. Connor Gavin in Rescue Me

Portrayed by: Trevor Heins
Dies in: "Happy" (Season 2, Episode 12)

When a show makes a habit of killing off its protagonists' loved ones, sure, it creates an atmosphere where no one is safe, but there’s also a desensitizing effect.

We figured haunted firefighter Tommy Gavin didn’t have anymore to lose, at least not without the series coming off as unforgivably sadistic. To which we now think: welp.

We should’ve seen the signs as soon as little Connor announced he wanted to be a firefighter just like Daddy. Not long after, there’s a screech as the rat bastard driver peels off, and Connor’s on the ground, the victim of a hit-and-run.
