Everyone knows Grey's Anatomy for being overdramatic and essentially a newer version of General Hospital. There are crazy love affairs and more deaths than I can count, but that is what makes the show so addictive. From the death of Denny Duquette to the plane crash episode to the end of McDreamy, Grey's Anatomy has given us 15 amazing so far, so here are the best of the worst moments.
1. Denny's heart failing
The only thing worse than Denny dying was when he came back for Izzy and informed her that she had cancer. I mean come on how much sadder can it get?
2. Burke leaves Christina at the altar
Christina, who never shows emotion, cries hysterically and rips herself out of her dress. This kind of response from Christina is enough to bring any audience to tears.
3. Meredith realizes the John Doe is George
None of us were expecting this. We thought George was alive and well and this ripped us all to shreds.
4. Lexie's death
Her talking to Mark about the future they are going to have, sobbing while talking about their kids; this was the worst. I ugly cried for the entire episode.
5. Christina says goodbye to Meredith
Okay so this is not that sad, but it's pretty sad. Meredith and Christina saying goodbye for the last time was a bit of a tear-jerker. They had been together since day one; they were each other's person.
6. Callie and Arizona get into a car accident
They really had to put both of them in that situation. Seriously, Shonda Rhimes?
7. Amelia realizes she has a brain tumor
Nothing is sadder than realizing the last few months of your life have been a lie because you have not been yourself.
8. Jackson and April lose their baby
A dead baby. This is just taking it to new extremes.
9. Meredith explains Derek's death to her kids
How do you tell children that their father will never come home. Cue the uncontrollable sobbing.
10. Jackson pulls a child from a burning bus
April panicking that Jackson almost died. Jackson almost dying. This messed me up.
11. Meredith almost drowning
She just gives up. Derek saves her but she was going to die. Shonda, what are you trying to do to us?
12. The doctors can only choose one patient to save
Two patients. Stuck on a pole through their abdomens. Only one of them can be saved. AND THEY MAKE THE DOCTORS CHOOSE.
13. Christina's ectopic pregnancy
Once again, Christina crying is enough to make anyone cry.
14. Meredith confessing her love to Derek
Let's be honest, we all felt what Meredith was feeling at some point.
15. Derek's death
No words. This was the worst death in TV history.
