Gone too soon!

Grab a tissue because this gallery will bring you to tears.

We’re taking a look back at some of the most tragic character deaths that occurred during the season finales of a few of our favorite shows like Empire, Shadowhunters, Chicago P.D. and Arrow.

Hopefully we won’t mourn long because one day soon these familiar faces will pop up again or possibly is a flashback (we’re looking at you Carl Grimes).
