3. When Jackie dies in season 1, episode 10

Jackie might've not been the best friend and was very self-centered, but she didn't deserve to die. She had one of the most shocking deaths at that. After finding and reading Shauna's journal, Jackie discovers that Shauna had been having sex with her boyfriend Jeff behind her back. She then puts two and two together and realizes that the baby Shauna is pregnant with is Jeff's.

But instead of confronting Shauna right away, Jackie acts like everything is normal. However, this doesn't last long because Jackie finally reaches her boiling point, and she and Shauna have a heated argument. The heated argument ends with Jackie storming out of the cabin because she doesn't want to be near Shauna.

While everyone sleeps in the warm cabin that night, Jackie tries to bear the cold outside with barely any warmth. But it starts snowing overnight, and Jackie ends up freezing to death. Shauna wakes up the next morning to see Jackie's lifeless body buried in the snow. That scene right there seriously broke me. Seeing how affected Shauna was by Jackie's death was hard to watch because even though they had a toxic friendship, they did actually love each other in their own weird way.

I was even more saddened in season 2 when Shauna was having a hard time letting Jackie go. It had been two months since Jackie's passing, and she was keeping her body in the meat shed, imagining that she was having conversations with her. I don't know about you, but I would've liked to see more of Jackie. I feel like her story was cut too short, but at the same time, her death did move the plot forward.
