The thing with Tommy was that he was much closer to pathetic than the typical angst character. And he was definitely farther away from 'hot' in the classical sense (sorry Marshall Allman.) But supernatural television shows have unique methods of hiking up the ways to torture characters. And I thought Tommy had one of the more depressing backstories in TV land.

While Tommy was essentially just a prop for Sam, he had a really lovely death scene. It was True Blood at its most serious. In his final moments, despite the crazy reason he was dying, Tommy was just a scared, lonely kid, facing death alone. A kid who knows there isn't any hope for himself or his soul. He's going off into the darkness by himself because that's the way things go for him. It was touching. And fitting. Tommy's death was Tommy's finest moment.
