Many incredible General Hospital (GH) characters have graced the little town of Port Charles over the years, only to have their lives end in tragedy. While some have ‘come back’ (i.e. Jason and Jake Morgan, the evil Cesar Faison and of course, A.J. Quartermaine), many have met their doom with no window of opportunity to return.

5. A.J. Quartermaine
As the most prominent family in Port Charles, the Quartermaines are known for in-family feuding (especially when it comes to their corporate empire, ELQ), affairs, and tons of outrage. Alan Quartermaine Junior, often referred to simply as A.J. was no exception this. The handsome and charming ladies’ man struggled with illegal activity, paternity tests, and of course, alcoholism over the years. The weird thing about A.J. passing in 2014 was the fact that he had literally ‘risen from the afterlife’ a mere two years earlier, when fans thought that Dr. Asher Thomas had smothered him in 2005. A.J. was a complex character who often crossed the lines of ‘good and evil’ many times during his stint on GH. And while he did do some horrible things over the years, he genuinely did seem like he was on the road to redemption before Sonny Corinthos shot him in 2012.
