Glenn from 'The Walking Dead' voted the 'saddest TV death ever'

After more than 3 million votes, Glenn Rhee from the hit show The Walking Dead has been named the 'saddest television death ever'.
Social media users have flocked to the popular voting site Ranker to share their thoughts on a poll titled: "The Saddest Television Deaths Ever."

And after 3.8 million votes cast between more than 220,000 Ranker users, it was Glenn Rhee - portrayed by the talented Steven Yeun - who claimed the top spot after the most intense game of Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe in history.

Glenn first graced our screens in the series premiere of AMC's The Walking Dead. His character - a resourceful and compassionate former pizza delivery guy - quickly became a fan favorite. Glenn's humor, unwavering courage, and relentless hope endeared him to viewers as they navigated the treacherous world overrun by flesh-hungry walkers. And his relationship with Maggie (played by Lauren Cohan) was a beacon of hope in the dystopian show.
Glenn's journey on the show was marked by numerous close calls, but it was the Season 7 premiere that left fans in a state of shock, grief, and disbelief. The episode titled 'The Day Will Come When You Won't Be' opened with one of the most brutal and heartbreaking scenes in television history.

Negan, the menacing leader of the Saviors, had captured Glenn, Rick, and their friends. With his barbed-wire-covered baseball bat, Lucille, Negan decided to make an example of one the group - as a means of showing them who was in charge.

As he played a twisted game of "eeny, meeny, miny, moe," the tension in the scene became palpable. But it was actually Abraham who ended up being on the receiving end of Negan's bat.

And while fans certainly missed ol' Abe, it was the sudden moment when Negan turned on Glenn that made viewers' hearts sink.

The brutality that followed was not only a gruesome visual spectacle but a poignant emotional rollercoaster. Negan proceeded to bludgeon Glenn in a savage and unrelenting manner. The camera didn't flinch as viewers witnessed the beloved character's last breaths and haunting final words: "Maggie, I'll find you." The impact was visceral, leaving fans in tears.
The reaction to Glenn's death was immediate and widespread. Social media exploded with grief-stricken fans mourning the loss of a character who had become an integral part of their lives. Steven Yeun's exceptional portrayal of Glenn earned him accolades, and his absence left a void that was impossible to fill. Glenn's death profoundly affected the characters within the show as well. Maggie, Glenn's wife, was left to grapple with the devastating loss of her beloved husband. Her grief and determination to honor Glenn's memory became a central theme in subsequent seasons.

But what came in second place? Well, that would be Hodor in Game of Thrones.

In a heart-wrenching moment that echoed throughout the Seven Kingdoms, Hodor, the gentle giant with a tragic past, met his demise while holding the door to protect Bran Stark and Meera Reed from the relentless onslaught of White Walkers.

The moment played out as viewers watched the revelation of Hodor's destiny unfold - showcasing the depths of his unwavering loyalty and the tragic origin of his iconic catchphrase.

In third place was Opie Wilson from Sons of Anarchy, fourth place went to Lady the direwold in Game of Thrones, and fifth place was claimed by another Walking Dead character, Hershel Greene.

So, as we honor Glenn Rhee's memory and recognize his place in television history as the "Saddest TV Death Ever," let us also celebrate the enduring legacy of a character who reminded us that even in a world overrun by the undead, compassion, bravery, and hope can shine through the darkness. Glenn may be gone, but he will never be forgotten.
