There could be another reason why they never say "die" or "kill." They're too simple thus falling under bland dialogue. They're trying to find more creative phrases that mean the same thing as "die" and "kill."

Granted, before the millennium there was probably more caution around the subject. But the last few years have been quite a push-through for conversation about the topics.
But those shows are TV-G to TV-PG; we're talking about TV-Y to TV-Y7 shows that are avoiding the saying of "die."
And Mercy too.
