'Army Wives': Who Passed Away, Why Fans Love 'Army Wives'

army wivesArmy Wives had a very emotional episode last night, as fans found out about the death of Jeremy.  Last night’s Army Wives episode was incredibly sad and today fans of the Lifetime show are buzzing about it online!

Last night’s Army Wives told the story of the death of Jeremy Sherwood, the son of Denise and Frank. Jeremy was killed in Afghanistan.  In a heartbreaking scene, Denise is told that her son Jeremy died in combat, and his soon-to-be wife Tonya finds out at the same time. Even more heartbreaking—the news comes during Tonya and Jeremy’s wedding shower.

The Army Wives episode, “On Behalf of a Grateful Nation” was produced differently than most of the other  shows. Last night’s episode told part of the story in flashbacks and part of the show took place in present time.  Last night’s episode was brutal, completely sad and if you haven’t seen this emotional episode of Army Wives, you’ll need at least one box of tissues.

Fans of the Lifetime series were buzzing on Twitter last night and this morning about the tragic episode last night:

“Oh, Army Wives, thanks for making me have to re-do my makeup this morning….I know it’s just a show, but it was so sad!”

“still emotionally drained from #Army Wives last night. Lost count of tissues but pretty sure I’ve never cried so much from a show/movie.”

The past of last night’s episode that made me cry REALLY hard?  When I realized that Jeremy never even got to meet his baby sister, Molly.  The horror of war and the sacrifice of those who serve our country…and their families is brought into our living rooms every week because of Army Wives and it’s important that we see this, even in a cleaned up “made for TV” version.
