Viewers shocked – but not surprised – as Ten drama kills off Nina's partner in a heavily trailed, gut-wrenching episode
How are you? Are you coping? Did you take personal leave from work today? I jest, but only slightly, because if my social media feeds and workplace conversations are anything to go by, much of the nation is clearly grieving – and possibly over the death of a quality TV show as well as a favourite character.
Viewers were left shocked – but not surprised, thanks to excessive "who will Nina lose?" promos – when a beloved main character was killed off in Channel Ten's hit series Offspring on Wednesday night.
In the end it was Patrick (played by Matthew Le Nevez), partner to the show's endlessly tormented protagonist Nina (Asher Keddie) and the father of her unborn child, who was dispatched in TV drama's favourite manner, a car accident.
