If the show didn’t end because they’d run out of ways to torture Violet, then it had to be because they had run out of permutations of people to hook up in the practically incestuous office.

Why We Love Him: Well, loved. He was an adorable midwife who added niceness to the office, and he was a really good father to the tween he never knew about… so of course he had to be killed off.
