Television Deaths:[]

  • Tales from the Crypt: Split Second (1991) [Liz Kelly-Dixon]: Bisected with a chainsaw (off-screen) by Billy Wirth, after the other lumberjacks gag both Michelle and Brion James and place them in hollow logs (so that the blind Billy doesn't know they're inside); the episode ends with Brion being cut in half and Michelle helplessly awaiting the same fate. (Thanks to Stephen)
  • Melrose Place: The Test (1993) [Perry Morgan]: Possibly dies of AIDS-related complications at some point after this episode.
