No one likes their favorite character to leave a show, let alone die. On Season 3 of Prison Break, the head of someone who seemed to be Dr. Sarah Tancredi was shipped to Michael in a box. Fans were shocked and upset that they never had the chance to be together — and some even considered it a jump the shark moment. But her character appeared at the beginning of Season 4, alive and well. Does death always result in shark-jumping, or does it sometimes move a story forward?
