In the world of television, no one is safe. We have seen many of our favorite characters get killed off in the blink of an eye, but sometimes creators and executive producers of shows realize that killing off certain characters is a mistake, so they choose to keep said characters around instead. Here is a list of 7 TV characters who were supposed to die:
7. Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), Breaking Bad
Breaking Bad’s creator Vince Gilligan originally intended for Jesse Pinkman to be killed off at the end of the show’s first season in a botched drug deal, but by the second episode of season one, he was so impressed with Aaron Paul’s performance and his chemistry with Bryan Cranston that he realized it would be a colossal mistake to kill Jesse off, so the character stayed for the duration of the show.
