Then he goes out, finds Sabretooth in the forest, and lops Sabretooth’s head off...Sabretooth is okay with this, probably realizing [[VillainDecay how fucking ridiculous he looks]] and how long he’ll need to be off-camera before anyone’s going to take him seriously again. Of all the guys on this list, Sabretooth is probably the most likely to come back, but don’t expect it to happen for at least five or ten years.

->''"What a shame that Steven Williams’ commitments elsewhere prevent him from taking part in the show any longer, because he did bring a certain presence to the show as Mulder’s replacement mole in the government. It's doubly unfortunate that he should go out on such a spectacularly underwhelming two parter which [[{{McLeaned}} barely features him]]. Jerry Hardin’s departure from ''The X-Files'' was rightly hailed as a classic and his death scene one of the most dramatic moments the show achieved. The same plaudits cannot be placed at "Talitha Cumi"/"Herrenvolk"’s door. ''[Chris]'' Carter feels that killing characters off in such an arbitrary way ups the stakes, but after a while it feels like the entire cast of characters are going to be massacred whenever the show needs a boost in the ratings. When characters work out, sometimes it is a good idea [[TallPoppySyndrome to keep them around]]. "''

->''"Don't get me wrong, the ''Stargate'' series was great, focusing on various groups using the titular devices to travel and explore different worlds. But for all the series went into wormhole theory, their grasp of medical science left a bit to be desired...the straw on this particular camel came in Season 3 of ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' with the untimely and utterly surprising death of Dr. Beckett via...[[ARareSentence exploding tumor.]]''
->''Yes, friends, an exploding tumor, big enough to take out an entire floor of Atlantis. The episode is mid-season, it is a framed episode (almost always a sure sign that it is written by a hack, since it stretches 5 minutes of story into 40 by just denying the viewer [[HowWeGotHere a basic bit of knowledge]]) and came out of nowhere. Basically, SGA was already planning on a [[{{Retool}} major recast]] come Season 4 and didn't want to completely alienate everybody by changing things all at once...despite his exceptionally stupid demise Dr. Beckett did eventually get cloned and returned for a few cameos throughout season 5, proving -- as if Optimus Prime's continuing resurrections weren't enough -- that the one thing stronger than even death is [[FirstLawOfResurrection Fan Demand.]]"''
