On Wednesday, Arrow stunned fans by killing off a pivotal character, resulting in a tearful — and very unexpected — goodbye for viewers everywhere. Even if you’re not familiar with the superhero series, we’re sure everyone can relate to the idea of having to say goodbye to a TV character close to their hearts.
Just the idea of farewells made us nostalgic for some of the fan favorites we’ve had to say goodbye to over the years, and it also got us wondering about which we’d champion to return if we were given the chance. Now, we’re turning that question over to you: if you could pick just one TV character, regardless of whether they died or simply moved on, to bring back ASAP, which would you choose?
Would it be The Vampire Diaries original heroine, Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev)? Or perhaps you’re hoping for just one more Allison (Crystal Reed) storyline on Teen Wolf? Would you love to see the likes of Christina Yang (Sandra Oh), Izzie Stevens (Katherine Heigl), or even McDreamy himself (Patrick Dempsey) return to the world of Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital on Grey’s Anatomy? Or are you really just hoping that HBO does an about face on its recent confirmation that Jon Snow (Kit Harington) really is dead on Game of Thrones?
Regardless of who you’d choose, now is your chance to speak up! So check out the poll below and vote for which TV character you’d love to bring back ASAP! Once you’re done, don’t forget to leave us a comment explaining why you voted the way you did!
