* JumpedTheShark: Of course, it's debated as to which point the shark jump took place. Burke leaving, all of season 4, Izzie having sex with a ghost, the Seattle Grace/Mercy West merger, or, most recently, [[spoiler: the deaths of Lexie and Mark and the hospital's financial troubles]].
** Many fans refuse to watch after [[spoiler: Cristina left at the end of Season 10]] and, more recently, [[spoiler: Derek dying near the end of Season 11]]
** The affair between George and Izzie in Season 3 may have been the beginning of the end. The romance itself was not necessarily bad, but up until then the show had focused on GrayAndGreyMorality--heck, it's even in the title! The Izzie/George relationship, in comparison, involved [[CharacterShilling shilling]] them and {{Villain Ball}}ing Callie--a major shift in tone.
** Another possibility is the recent introduction of a no-fraternization policy to prevent OfficeRomance. While this is a perfectly sensible policy that many RealLife HR departments have, in this series--which is built on nothing ''but'' OfficeRomance--its introduction at this late date strikes a huge blow to WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief.
** Only a few hours after [[spoiler: Derek's death late in season 11]] and many longtime viewers began decrying that the show is now dead to them. [[spoiler: After one of the main focuses on the series was the Meredith-Derek relationship since the very beginning, to have it thrown out in an instant has gotten fans feeling that the show is beyond salvaging at this point.]]



** Each one of the five new interns introduced in Season 9 was this for somebody, but now that only two remain, Stephanie is getting the brunt of the negative feedback (Jo is a little more of a BaseBreaker and does have her fans). The majority of viewers find the character flat and one-dimensional and are not happy that she's stealing the spotlight with her resident plotline, while Jo's only storyline continues to be her relationship with Alex. [[DieForOurShip And then there are the Jackson/April shippers...]]

* BaseBreaker: April Kepner. Some fans are endeared by her (and her relationship with Jackson) and find her quirky and adorable. Others... well, see her entry under TheScrappy.

Added DiffLines:

** The music in the back half of season 10 is almost entirely acoustic '80s covers.

* HideYourPregnancy: The reasoning behind Meredith's liver transplant storyline in Season Six–it was a procedure that would require a lot of bedrest for the character and to get Ellen Pompeo off her feet in real life (Shonda Rhimes has stated she was ''very'' pregnant while those episodes were being filmed).
** Also Chyler Leigh (Lexie)'s overeating during Season 5. It was a bit of an in-joke with the cast.
** Jessica Capshaw's pregnancy is hidden in season seven. There was one scene where they failed in the premiere, but they're mostly filming her from the chest up and hiding her behind clipboards. They then sent her character to Africa.
** Sarah Drew's pregnancy was also hidden in season eight, since her character was a virgin. Jessica Capshaw's third pregnancy is being hidden in season eight, too.
** Jessica Capshaw again in season twelve - they mostly hid her behind assorted items.

* BigScrewedUpFamily: Meredith Grey's family. Her mother was emotionally abusive and suicidal, and separated her from her father, who became an alcoholic. It is later revealed that she has half-sisters [[spoiler: from both her parents]].

* InternetBackdraft: Within ''seconds'' of the end OF "How to Save a Life", literally thousands of fans took to Twitter declaring that they were finished with the show, with many tweeting directly to Shonda Rhimes with some choice words.

** The show has never been shy about showcasing Meredith's angst (or, less charitably {{Wagnst}}) about a wide variety of personal dramas, so it felt especially strange that her reaction to something that everybody could agree was worthy of a deep reaction ([[spoiler: the death of her husband]]) was almost totally glossed over, especially given that the episode following it was ''two hours long'' but barely featured her.

* WinBackTheCrowd: After a really mediocre year (or, as a lot of fans would tell you, mediocre ''three'' years), the Season 6 finale breathed new life into the show and it entered a second golden age. And, after the highly divisive ninth and tenth seasons, the eleventh seemed to be making a bid to rescue the show again, with some truly quality writing and an overall less bleak tone until [[spoiler: the death of Derek at the end destroying many fans faith in the series]].

** [[spoiler: Reed Adamson getting shot in the head]] after being a cold and rude to the wrong person. The only tragic thing about it was April's breakdown upon finding her body, but then again, fans weren't exactly crazy about her at the time either.

* SeasonalRot: Most fans agree that the show hit this by Season 6 at the latest, and some will tell you it set in as early as Season 4. The situation did eventually rectify itself, and most fans think very highly of Seasons 7 and 8. The later seasons, however, are more divisive in this regard (especially due to [[spoiler: The plane crash at the beginning of Season 9 killing Mark and Lexie, Cristina leaving at the end of Season 10, and Derek dying in late Season 11]] and how good they were is subjective.
