ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the implications of eliminating a major character in a popular television series. The killing of major characters seems to be a matter of course in primetime television like Ralph Cifretto played by Joe Pantoliano, who was eliminated but took home an Emmy for Pantoliano's portrayal after a three-year engagement. "Lost," a popular television series, waited until the end of season one to finally dispatch one of its castaway cast Boone Carlyle played by Ian Somerhalder, followed by the death of her half-sister Shannon played by Maggie Grace in the second season.
