For several days now, it's been rumored that a major character will be killed off in the season finale of an unnamed primetime drama. The blind item, first reported by Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello, has caused quite a stir among various fans given the endless possibilities of shows that could fit into the description, including The Vampire Diaries, NCIS, and Desperate Housewives, among others. Most recently, however, Ausiello narrowed down the search and revealed that the subject of his blind item was ABC's Private Practice.
So who's getting killed off on Private Practice? It's still unclear since there have been no hints of an unexpected death on the series so far. But according to Ausiello, the character in question is both an original cast member and a series regular, and most importantly, it's someone who has a strong fan following.
