We’ve all been there — we fall in love with a television character only to have him/her go and DIE on us. Like, we’re still mourning the loss of Jasper Jordan on The 100 and probably will never get over Stefan Salvatore’s death on The Vampire Diaries. Sure, sometimes ~dead~ characters actually aren’t gone for good and end up coming back, but still — small-screen passings are truly some of the toughest to endure.

But what would you say if we told you some of your favorite TV characters were supposed to die, but ended up getting a second chance at life thanks to the brilliant writers who switched things up to keep them around? As it turns out, HUGE characters such as Stranger Things’ Eleven and Pretty Little Liars’ Alison DiLaurentis weren’t intended to stick around for very long at all. So, why did they and others cheat death and stay on their small-screen series? The possibilities are endless.
