I think this post is the reason I didn't update the challenge for a month.
I'm a crier, and I have cried at many a TV death in my day. I won't tell you the specific ones here, in case that will spoil you, but let's just say that my sofa has seen its fair share of my tears and then some. The two listed below are the ones that hit me the very, very hardest-- even though I already knew both of them were coming.
First, Downton Abbey's Lady Sybil Cora Crawley Branson

So Wallace shows back up because he wants to get his life back together. He sees his friends, and at first he's all happy. Then they point a gun at him with shaking hands, so naturally Wallace wets himself and cries. And then, his best friends pull the trigger and kill him. It's awful. I will never forget it.
Hubs had watched this episode before me, and (again, because I am a spoiler reader) I already knew what was coming, so I asked him, "How sad is it?" He replied, "It's not too bad." YEAH, "not too bad" = tears pouring down my cheeks faster than I could wipe them away and pressing my hand to my mouth to keep from sobbing breakdown-style. "Not too bad," my aunt Fanny. Just remembering it makes my chest ache.
This is a depressing post. To make up for that, here's a gif of my favorite part of While You Were Sleeping.
