I would say Rick in pt 3 surprised me. I thought he'd live and help save Chris

Sheriff Garris in pt 6 as well. Figured him,Tommy and Megan would survive and Garris would tell Tommy he was right about Jason

Mrs Jarvis in pt 4 was a bit of a shock as well and I would say Gramps in pt 5

I feel like I've talked about this somewhere before, but the only death in the franchise that ever really surprised me was Jenna in the Reboot. They teased her being the final girl throughout so much of the movie, that killing her off as abruptly as they did caught me off guard. Judging by the gasps in the movie theater, I wasn't the only one taken by surprise. They were pretty much cheering every other death scene, lol.

For the most part I'm not surprised by anyone who dies. Anyone that's not a final girl, a child, or named Tommy Jarvis is never safe. None of the adult figures other than Pam from P5 have ever really survived, so those deaths don't surprise me.

I'd call Rick from P3 a minor surprise. Not so much that he died, but how empathically he was killed off.

Ricks was Shocking because of the brutal nature….. was I surprised not really…. The Film was building up to a Chris and Jason one on one confrontation….

As for Jenna, That did shock me as well I was actually extremely surprised with her death, you are 100% right about them setting her up for a Final girl spot….. I was even expecting Whitney to die even after they found her… but I am definitely glad they went the way they did with it because that surprise kill was on point….. literally.

I was also surprised by Jenna being dispatched. I don't think I saw it coming. It's hard to think of anyone else. Basically, except for the Final Girl, the people in the movies are essentially cannon fodder.

Jenna for sure. But to be honest, I figured Ali's surprise return after Jason left him for dead meant he would have survived to the end, but I admit I was a little surprised that his second wind only bought Chris a couple of seconds. I would have liked to see him make it and be the bad 'good guy'

Pretty Sure Sheriff Garris would have been “Split down the middle” admitting he was wrong lol 😂

The two that caught me off guard were Mrs. Jarvis and Jenna. For some reason I just kept waiting for her to make it back to the house but, it wasn't until Trish and Tommy started boarding up the door that the realization kicked in.
