“He was a dick to Erin and sailed away from her on the boat. He was also so rude to Nellie, which wasn’t like his character at all. They really couldn’t have found a more creative or cohesive storyline for him during those final seasons?!”

2. On That ’70s Show, when Jackie started dating Fez even though she showed absolutely zero interest in him throughout the entire series.

“It was the most out-of-character choice for her! She never showed interest in him. It was such an obvious ‘We’ve run out of ideas’ move from the writers.”

3. On Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, when Rafael Barba — who was always soooo by the book — decided to turn off a child’s life support, and he was charged with second-degree murder.

“Assistant District Attorney Rafael Barba left in Season 19 for the most out-of-character reason. This guy was tough as nails and stuck to the letter of the law no matter what the circumstances were, but the way they had him leave was by disconnecting the life support of an infant whose parents had been feuding over whether or not to let him go.

4. At Grey’s Anatomy, where Alex spent 16 years in his redemption arc, fell in love and became a respected doctor…but then he spontaneously left his wife and the hospital to get back with Izzie.

“Alex was a dick in the first few seasons of Grey’s, but then he had this HUUGE redemption arc. He basically promised to always be there for his wife, but then he randomly got up and left her without any notice??? He got back with Izzie, who had his children without telling him. He basically did the worst thing his ex did to him.”

5. In Modern Family, Haley undid all of her character’s growth by deciding to get back with Dylan, her high school boyfriend, in the final seasons of the show.

“She matured so much over the series and started having real, substantial relationships. She knew what she wanted in life and was going after it, but then her character randomly got back together with Dylan. No thanks!”

6. The scandal began when Olivia Pope randomly changed her entire personality and became a power-hungry villain in Season 6.

“I feel this 100%! I felt betrayed by the last two seasons of Scandal!”

7. In Parks and Rec, when Leslie and Ron literally stopped talking to each other for years just because Leslie forgot to cancel their lunch plans.

“First of all, Leslie would never have forgotten about her plans with Ron, no matter how busy she was. Her thoughtfulness and preparedness were her defining qualities. Second, Ron got so upset with her for standing him up, which wasn’t normal. Yes, he was at a low point and was going to ask her for a job, but the falling-out made no sense in relation to their characters’ histories.”

8. In Dexter, when Deb stopped caring about morals and started covering up for Dexter after she found out he was a serial killer.

“I will NEVER forgive the writers of Dexter for what they did to their core cast in the final season. They flat-out disrespected Deb. They made her progressively emotional and mentally unstable, and she ended up doing things for Dexter that she never would have done before. To see a character who started out as such a strong, smart, badass person get reduced to a puddle of nonsense is a crime against television. Never have I seen such great material to pull from get botched so badly.”

9. On Gilmore Girls, when Rory dropped out of Yale because one person told her she wasn’t going to make it as a journalist.

“Rory stole the yacht, moved in with her grandparents, and then decided to drop out of Yale and join the Daughters of the American Revolution. Like, what the hell, Rory?! Lorelai put her dreams on hold and sacrificed so much to make sure Rory went to college and could achieve her dreams. It was so unlike Rory to act that way.”

10. Shameless, when Fiona recklessly left her cocaine in the kitchen and Liam got ahold of it.

“She worked so hard at her own expense to raise those kids, but doing cocaine was completely out of character. Then when she left it in the house where it was easily accessible to the kids…that was too reckless, and she would never have normally put the kids in danger like that. I stopped watching the show because of this moment.”
