19 Objectively Terrible Fictional Characters Who Totally Don’t Deserve Their Happy Endings
When we are watching our favorite TV series, we naturally want good characters to get happy endings and the bad characters to get what they deserve.
However, things don’t always turn out that way, even on television where things are all made up.
There are some characters that get a way better ending than they deserve after the horrible things they have done.
1. Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones
After joining hands with Daenerys, Tyrion became extremely one-dimensional and his IQ dropped to the ground. Despite all blunders he did in Seasons 7 and 8, he ended up as Hand of the King, getting one of the best endings in the series when so many other characters got screwed over.
2. Negan from The Walking Dead
Negan was a fascist cult leader who was responsible for so many deaths. But people are hot for Jeffrey Dean Morgan, so he gets to become one of the main good guys.
3. Regina Mills from Once Upon a Time
Regina Mills killed hundreds of people and even admitted that she felt zero guilt over it. She also kept Graham as a sex slave for years before murdering him, and no one ever seems to mention that. Her ending wasn’t justified at all.
4. Ross Geller from Friends
Ross was so autocratic, anti-gay, and always acted all bossy on Rachel which was pretty outrageous. We’re glad Rachel ended up happy, but it should’ve been with someone else.
5. Dan Scott from One Tree Hill
Just because a little kid saw the good in Dan, did not dissolve his years of wrongdoing. He became good and was forgiven by Nathan for murdering his brother in cold blood. Dan should not have gone out like a hero.
6. Dan Humphrey from Gossip Girl
Dan Humphrey didn’t earn himself a happy ending after everything he did to his ‘friends’ when he was Gossip Girl. Serena just took him back and everyone just overlooked him.
7. Fleabag from Fleabag
Fleabag spent both seasons of the show being a total bitch to everyone around her and disregarding the limits that the priest tried to set with her. Instead of facing any consequences for her actions, she and her sister got closer than ever and she was even invited to her dad’s wedding.
8. Eli Pope from Scandal
Eli Pope manipulated his daughter for years and threatened her all the time. Seeing him and Olivia having dinner like a normal family in the series finale was just too infuriating.
9. Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones
Sansa kept making mistakes from the start like telling Tyrion about Jon Snow’s heritage almost letting Jon die during the battle with Ramsay. As selfish as she started out in the show, she remained the same till the end and even became the queen.
10. Walter White from Breaking Bad
He destroyed everything he touched, and yet his final plans went off without a hitch — even his own death. He shouldn’t have had it so easy in the end.
11. Angela Martin from The Office
Angela from The Office was just as rude, mean, judgmental, and self-centered in the end as in the beginning. Her happy ending seemed undeserved in front of Dwight’s.
12. Mona Vanderwaal from Pretty Little Liars
Mona’s mental health issues weren’t excuses for hitting Hannah with a car or trying to kill all the other liars and actually killing a person. What did she get in return? Her own spinoff.
13. Hordak from She-Ra and the Princesses of Power
Hordak did not deserve redemption. It’s reasonable that he changed that he switched his mind, but he didn’t do enough to redeem himself to have a happy ending.
14. Damon Salvatore from The Vampire Diaries
Damon was just not a good person at all, and Elena should have ended up with Stefan. He fed Elena his own blood so she would become a vampire even when she didn’t want to be one, and didn’t care about anyone other than Elena most of the time.
15. Olivia Pope from Scandal
The only way to have ended that show properly was to kill Olivia Pope off. She was responsible for too many awful things absolutely didn’t deserve a happy ending.
16. Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl
The writers of Gossip Girl completely disregarded the ferocious things Chuck did at the beginning of the show like attempting to rape two girls, selling Blair for a hotel, slut-shaming and publicly humiliating her.
17. Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City
Carrie who was meant to be the protagonist of the series was terrible in fact. She doesn’t really have any growth and remains selfish and reckless throughout the series.
18. Rumpelstiltskin from Once Upon a Time
Rumpelstiltskin was manipulative, abusive, and always double crossing everyone. Even though he was a fun character, but his redemption arc felt forced and rushed.
19. Michael Scott from The Office
We despised everything about his character and hated how he never got any real consequences for being such an awful person. He didn’t really deserve the happy ending with Holly, but the storyline was better when he was gone.
