There’s no doubt 2016 claimed more than a few beloved real-life figures, but we also lost some fan-favorite characters along the way in television and film. So, we just wanted to say goodbye.

It might be fiction, but there’s no doubt the death of a beloved character can have a real impact. Just look at how many people poured hours into dissecting the blood spray and pattern of Negan’s victim on Walking Dead — we care about our favorite characters. The year 2016 has been a brutal one, and we mean that in more ways than one. From Arrow, to The 100, to Marvel Comics and Game of Thrones (that could be a video unto itself), a lot has gone down.

So we put together an In Memoriam feature looking back at the year in review. Obviously, we’re giving you the biggest spoiler warning known to man here. So if you’re still catching up on a major series and absolutely don’t want to be spoiled, be warned.

Check out the video below and lets mourn together.
