13 Dark TV Characters With Even Darker Secrets

TV characters keeping secrets is not new. This much is obvious.

They help advance the narrative, but some characters are a little bit darker. 

That may be a cause for concern, but with secrets even darker, it makes for some great TV. 

Have a look at the 13 characters we’ve rounded up who have even darker secrets. 

1. Laurel Castillo – How to Get Away with Murder

Laurel first appeared as one of the most delightful characters on all of TV, but as How to Get Away Murder has progressed, the darkness inside her has intensified. She started lying to her friends and disappeared the moment the truth about just how effed up her family really is came to light.

2. Emily Thorne/Amanda Clarke – Revenge

Amanda Clarke posed as Emily Thorne in the Hamptons for four seasons on Revenge. Her mission was clear: To take down every single person who caused problems for her family. She had a lot of secrets and was willing to get her hands dirty to pull off the ultimate revenge plan.

3. Lucious Lyon – Empire

Lucious is always scheming. He lies to get his point across and hides a lot from his family. He’s the worst.

4. Georgina Sparks – Gossip Girl

Georgina was Gossip Girl for a short spell, but she made a big mistake. Having as many secrets as she does and spilling the tea about everyone else caught up with her in the end.

5. Blake Carrington – Dynasty

This is the man who swindled his ex-wife of her livelihood. He wouldn’t give a damn about hurting one of his offspring in the name of increasing his power. It’s sad. It makes sense then that he has a lot of skeletons in his closet.

6. Sabrina Spellman – Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

If you’re looking for something to watch (and watch and watch and just keep watching), we’ve got you covered!

Veronica Mars has cheated death on a number of occasions. After three seasons and a movie, the series seemed to be dead for good. Years later, Hulu ordered an eight-episode revival that features the most harrowing case yet.

2. Euphoria – HBO

Euphoria is like a reboot of Skins, but even more messed up. With an all-star cast that includes the likes of Zendaya and Eric Dane, it’s one show you cannot miss.

3. Schitt’s Creek – Pop TV

With a cast that includes Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Zoe Kravitz, Laura Dern, and even Meryl Streep, Big Little Lies is one of the best shows on the air.

6. YOU – Netflix

You started its life on Lifetime, but it didn’t pop until it moved to Netflix as an original series. With Gossip Girl’s Penn Badgley playing a stalker who will go to any lengths necessary to be the only person in a young woman’s life, it’s a crazy tale that is best served binged.

13 Shows That Need to End… Right Now!

These shows were great at one point. 

But nowadays they’re just circling the drain, preventing the inevitable. 

They should be put out of their misery before they are remembered as some of the worst shows around. 


1. Grey’s Anatomy

The series is entering a record-breaking 16th season at ABC, and despite a few good episodes, the series is starting to circle the drain. Ratings are starting to reflect the quality of the show, and it’s not in a good place creatively. It would be wise to bring the show to a close and allow the cast to move on to new projects.

2. Riverdale

Archie and veronicas final date
Riverdale started off well, with a coherent murder mystery. By the time Season 3 arrived, there were floating babies, teenagers running nightclubs, and underground boxing fights. It’s turned into a laughing stock and needs to end.

3. Arrow

Oliver and felicity on arrow
Arrow should not even be getting a short final season to wrap the story up. The writing has been abysmal on the show for around four years, and the ratings are dropping like a rock. The show could be wrapped up in a throwaway scene on one of the spinoffs.

4. Fear the Walking Dead

As if killing off most of the original cast was not bad enough, the fifth season put the characters in a radiation-filled wasteland, and they made some more bad decisions. The scenes drag on for dear life as a result of the pitiful dialog. It’s time to go go.

5. Suits

Suits has been circling the drain for years, to the point that nobody would care if USA Network decided to ditch the final season entirely. Nothing worth noting has happened since Meghan Markle and Patrick J. Adams ditched it.

6. How to Get Away with Murder

This convoluted series which follows essentially the same format every single season should have been a one-season thing. The most recent fifth season was not only embarrassing to watch, but it proved the characters are getting dumber with age.
