8 TV Characters Who Disappeared Without An Explanation
We’re all familiar with this situation – a character comes on a show and then disappears abruptly without even a hint as to where the character went. It’s kind of annoying, especially since most of us notice the character’s sudden absence. We have a compiled a list of the 8 TV characters who disappeared without explanation and why they suddenly vanished:
8. Professor Michelle Slater – Community
Professor Michelle Slater appeared in season one of Community, but after the episode “Pascal’s Triangle Revisited” when she and Britta start battling for his affection, we don’t see her again. Community creator Mark Harmon reportedly wrote Slater (played by Lauren Stamile) off and hasn’t considered ever reintroducing her character because he hasn’t liked any of her proposed storylines.
7. Kaitlin Cooper – The O.C.
Kaitlin Cooper was introduced during the series of premiere of The O.C. and we see her in several episodes, but by the end of the first season, we don’t see her anymore. Even at her mother’s wedding to Caleb Nichol, Kailtin is nowhere to be found! During season two, she still doesn’t appear and it’s finally explained in the first few episodes that she’s gone to boarding school. During season three, they totally recast the role (which initially belonged to Shailene Woodley) and then Willa Holland played Kailtin.
