  1. you forgot to mention Elena from vampire diaries, the show went down the hill after her death

  2. Dinah Laurel Lance should at least be an honourable mention. It kinda did turn a lot of people off from Arrow when you kill his main love interest and a member of the Justice League from the comics.
