Social media is back in a frenzy after the latest death of a lesbian character on television this week.

Samantha Groves or “Root,” became the victim of a sniper bullet in the latest episode of Person of Interest. Played by Amy Acker, Root was in love with Sarah Shahi’s character, Sameen Shaw. The death of Root comes after other seemingly needless deaths of lesbian characters this year, including Lexa from The 100, who’s death brought the most recent awareness to the trope.
