Day 22 – Saddest character death

There have been several characters whose death for one reason or another touched me, even if we only saw them in one episode.

However, for this question (as with the least favourite character) question I felt it was 'right' to go with a main character, someone whom I got to know, hence the 'saddest'. And the death of the person I have chosen really as a sad death.

My choice:

Caitlin Todd.

Kate wasn't my overall favourite character, but I really did love her. I thought she was an extremely well written female character, well balanced, feisty, attractive, intelligent, feminine without being overly girly.

She was a woman in a man's world, but she wasn't afraid to be a woman, yes, as she told Gibbs when she first met him like certain species of frogs she grew what she needed, but she was still very feminine. She was also excellent at standing up to Tony and giving as good as she got from him, their sibling banter was excellent. I loved the scene when she and Tony go to see Ducky to 'mediate' and Ducky refers to 'trying to please father' and at that point Gibbs arrives.

I knew, before I saw the episode, that Kate as going to die in 'Twilight', but I still cried when she died and have done so every time I've the episode. And it wasn't just a sad death for viewers, it was a sad death for the team. Kate's death touched Gibbs, Ducky, Tony, Tim, Jimmy and most of all Abby who was so very close to Kate.

She was a great character and as much as I love Ziva now I still miss Kate. Her death was a very sad death.
