* On ''Series/GreysAnatomy'', Jackson Avery prides himself on being the grandson of the acclaimed surgeon Harper Avery, a man who has awards and a hospital named after him. He needs aid from a doctor at another hospital for a case but she refuses as she has a non-disclosure agreement with anything having to do with Harper. Thinking it's for a medical issue, Jackson waives the agreement which sends his mother Catherine into a frenzy. She breaks the truth that Harper was a serial sexual predator who not only harassed female doctors/nurses but would fire them if they refused his advances. ''Thirteen'' women went on record for it but, for the good of the hospital, Catherine helped cover it up. This means the hospital can now be liable for lawsuits from these women. Jackson is horrified to realize his grandfather was a monster and dedicates himself to finding justice for these women, no matter if it ruins their name.

* On the Freeform series ''Siren'', Ben has grown up in the coastal town of Bristol Cove listening to the tales of his great-great-great-grandfather Charles who fell in love with a mermaid and they and humans lived in peace. Naturally, he doesn't believe in them until he catches video of a mysterious woman transforming into one. Ben goes to Helen, the owner of a local historical shop who confirms this. Ben thinks this is wonderful but Helen is actually terrified. She informs him that the truth of the legend is that the mermaid chose to return to sea which drove Charles mad and thus he and his crew slaughtered every mermaid they could find. She even hands him one of the crew logs packed with drawings of the massacre. Ben is rocked to realize how the town has spent 150 years celebrating a man who was an utter monster trying to wipe out an entire species just because of a broken heart.

* Selina Meyer of ''Series/{{Veep}}'' grew up believing her late father was a warm-hearted man who built up the family fortune and loved her deeply. He always bought her snowglobes from his business trips and a horse that her mother later sold off. Selina considered her mother a cold woman who just lived off the fortune and treated Selina badly. On a trip home, however, Selina discovers the truth: Her father had been cheating with his secretary for years and died having sex with her. ''He'' was the one who sold off Selina's horse to pay debts as he was a terrible businessman and the "business trips" were just trysts with the secretary who was also the one buying Selina the snowglobes. Selina is rocked to realize her father was a total scumbag (just like Selina's ex-husband) and Selina's mom was really the financial wiz who allowed her daughter to hate her for years rather than ruin the image of her wonderful father.
