Maura Tierney wants Abby Lockhart dead, dead, dead

Maura TierneyER has a way of either killing off beloved characters or sending them off in some other unnecessary, shitty way (remember Jeanie just leaving without saying goodbye to anyone because they were too busy?), but now a top star on the show actually wants them to kill off her character.

Maura Tierney tells AOL's TV Tattler that she wants the show to kill Abby. Tierney isn't coming back full time next season (she'll be on a handful of episodes) and she would like to see Abby killed off instead of walking into the sunset with Luka. But breathe easy, Abby fans. Tierney says that the producers have no plans to kill Abby off. I'm not sure why Tierney would want to have her character killed off. I mean, she's not going to be on the show anymore so why tick off fans?

But let's speculate, shall we? I'll leave it up to you, ER fans: if they do kill off Abby, how should she go? Helicopter chopping her head off? Drinking herself to death? Buffalo stampede? Caught in a black hole?

She should get drunk and drive into the Chicago River. Then she gets rescued and taken to County where they spend the rest of the hour trying to revive her while she has an out of body experience and remembers past times with the people who are trying to save her and telling them why they should/shouldn't save her.

Woah...I should write TV scripts :-)

Wow. I don't watch ER, but my wife does. I've seen a few episodes over the years. Your idea sounds great. I would watch that episode.

Tierney obviously wants to be able to have some redemption moments before a long, drawn-out death scene. Every actor's dream!

Well, Dr. John Carter, whom Abby used to date, comes back to visit the ER from Africa. Everyone in the ER goes out for drinks. Abby has too much to drink and is feeling lonely. She and John sleep together. A few months later John contacts Abby and says he is HIV+. He states he was poked with a needle while in Africa. So, Abby also gets tested and finds she is HIV+ also. This is too much for Abby to handle and she committs suicide by overdosing on sleeping pills and alcohol.

After being with Abbey for so many years, killing her off (when she's finally happy) would suck...especially because she has a baby-Joe.

If she keeps smoking, that would do it right there! But honestly - I don't want her dead either, she should go off into the sunset and be happy.

The answer is simple. After finding out she has cancer, a schizophrenic patient steals a helicopter blade and stabs her with it.

With the s**t-fest that is Abby's life on ER, her ending up dead seems fitting :P
