Yo, so have you ever wondered why Susan Grey had to kick the bucket in ‘Grey’s Anatomy’? You’re not alone. Fans are still pretty miffed about it. It feels like the writers just offed her to crank up the drama, and that’s not cool.

Susan was, like, the only one who gave a darn about Meredith and made real efforts to help patch things up between her and her dad. And honestly, they didn’t need to kill her off to keep things spicy between Lexie and Meredith.

But nope, they just had to make Meredith lose two moms and her relationship with her dad all within a couple of months. Seriously, talk about harsh. Meredith finally found someone who loved her like she deserved to be loved. Susan was a total sweetheart – patient, kind, and always trying her best. But it’s like life kept kicking Meredith in the teeth. Totally not fair.

Fans clearly miss Susan, and they wish things could have been different. The bond between Susan, Mer, and Lexie could have been a powerful storyline. But instead, the writers made a decision that, to this day, leaves fans questioning: why did Susan Grey have to die?
