If you consider it, it's been a really strong year for shocking television deaths, save for one major exception where a certain writer p*ssed out. But otherwise, television dramas have not been shy away about killing off major characters, and in some cases very major: Characters that have been around for seasons or even characters who it seemed shows were built around. Below, we rank the 10 Most Traumatic Character Deaths of 2011. There are spoilers, obviously, so if you haven't caught up on any of the following shows and expect to at some point, you might be wise to skeedaddle: "The Killing," "Dexter," "The Walking Dead," "Boss," "Sons of Anarchy," "Boardwalk Empire," "Parks and Recreation," "Justified," Game of Thrones," and "Breaking Bad." I have, however, linked to the art (instead of posting it) and only included character names, so if you skim really fast, you may avoid certain spoilers.
