The 25 Most Heartbreaking Deaths in TV History

Charlie Pace — Lost

Not Penny’s boat. Those are the three words that are likely to be echoed in every Lost fan’s memory after seeing Charlie (Dominic Monaghan) in his brave final hour. It was the message he managed to get to Desmond Hume (Henry Ian Cusick), whom he knowingly sacrificed himself to help. Desmond now knew that his long lost love, Penny (Sonya Walger), hadn’t sent her rescuers. Not only did Charlie face his fate willingly, but he also used his final breaths to be a good pal — thus cementing his hard-won transformation from a troubled musician to a quality man.
