  1. C'mon, Jon, no Gus from Breaking Bad for memorable deaths. At least an honorable mention.

  2. And while I am at it... Maude Flanders over Bleeding Gums Murphy? For shame to whomever said that. ��

  3. I feel Big Pussy from Sopranos was overlooked as was Bobby Bacala and Tony Blundetto (Tony's cousin played by Steve Buscemi) to a lesser extent. But most of all, maybe on par with Stringer for me, was Frank Sobotka from Season 2 of The Wire. The final episode of that season (my favorite) still haunts me... Also, Mrs. Blankenship's death on Mad Men was a great scene. Great calls on Adriana, Omar and Henry Blake!

  4. Harley on Treme was another amazing one...
