Hell hath no fury like a fanbase scorned! Fans of Fox's Lethal Weapon were predictably unhappy Tuesday when the the series returned for Season 3 and revealed exactly how star Clayne Crawford was written out in the wake of his firing earlier this year.

He wasn't written out offscreen and unfortunately didn't move back to Texas to live happily ever after with his mustache and incredible hair. No, Crawford's character Martin Riggs died in surgery. To be fair, this was always the most obvious outcome. Riggs was shot in the Season 2 finale — dying was the easiest option. So even though Murtaugh (Damon Wayans) rushed his partner's unconscious body to the emergency room, he didn't make it.

Some fans naturally thought this was bullshit.

Others thought it was hella uncool and not the show they signed up for.

The most staunch supporters of Crawford, who recently revealed his side of what went down before his firing, have decided to use the Season 3 premiere, which introduced Seann William Scott's detective William Cole as Murtaugh's new parter, to take a stance. They are never, ever, ever watching Lethal Weapon ever again.


Lethal Weapon airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Fox.
