Why did so many good people have to die on TV finales?
This season we lost lovable intern Mr. Vincent Nigel-Murray (Ryan Cartwright) on the penultimate episode of "Bones," "Justified" wonder Mags Bennett (Margo Martindale), "Castle's" Capt. Montgomery (Ruben Santiago-Hudson), not to mention Sue Sylvester's sister Jean (Robin Trocki) on the penultimate episode of "Glee" and, seemingly, "Fringe's" Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson).
