Say hello to 'Gizzie'

The short-lived pairing of BFFs George and Izzie was the worst. No chemistry, not believable... just ugh.

RIP, George

ABC

RIP, George

It sucked enough when lovable George decided to join the military. Did he seriously have to get hit by a bus?!

Ava, aka 'Jane Doe'

Not only did the ferry crash storyline eat up too much time, but Alex's Jane Doe wound up being wildly unstable.

'Intern Fight Club'

ABC

'Intern Fight Club'

Mer's childhood friend Sadie organized an intern ring of illicit surgeries on each other, and it was kinda silly.

Kiss from a Rose

We love Shonda Rhimes, but what was she thinking having Derek hook up with irksome nurse Rose?

Dr. Hahn

ABC

Dr. Hahn

Whether you loved this badass surgeon or hated her, you were likely unsatisfied with her random and abrupt exit.

Sloan's Sloan

ABC

Sloan's Sloan

Who could wait for Sloan's surprise daughter, Sloan, to leave? She ended up being such a bad apple.

Owen's shocking affair

After everything, how could Owen have cheated on Yang? We weren't ready for this relationship to end.

Due to mounting pressure, Bailey suffered a serious OCD breakdown that seemingly came out of nowhere.

Shippers were none too happy when Arizona broke Callie's heart by hooking up with visiting surgeon, Lauren.

Leah and Arizona's fling

ABC

Leah and Arizona's fling

As adorable as Arizona is, hooking up with resident Leah was morally dubious and, well, nobody really dug it.

Jackson and April's big loss

ABC

Jackson and April's big loss

There were not enough tears in the world to deal with the diagnosis and death of Jackson and April's baby.

Unlucky Penny

Unlucky Penny

As if Derek's death wasn't enough, one of his inept doctors ends up dating Callie and on Mer's rotation. WTF?

#15/18:

The exodus of Yang

ABC
#15/18:

The exodus of Yang

"He is not the sun... you are." *sobs* Mer needs her person back. Ya hear, Shonda Rhimes?

#16/18:

Say it ain't so, McDreamy!

ABC
#16/18:

Say it ain't so, McDreamy!

Do I even have to explain this one? No one, and I mean no one, was on board with Derek's sudden death.

#17/18:

Callie's low-key send-off

ABC

Callie's low-key send-off

For a character as beloved as Callie was, she sure didn't get much of a send-off. Do-over?

ABC
#18/18:

That #Meriggs kiss, tho

To be clear, that kiss had us all feelin' some kind of way. But we're into it now, right?
