3. Every Time Someone Marries, Someone Dies
"The fact is that every time someone gets married on the show, almost like clockwork, someone dies, and every time someone divorces, another one leaves. Some deaths on the show happen right away, and others are drawn out over a longer period."

5. Derek's Death Was Foreshadowed In Season 1
In Season 1, Episode 2, the rape victim (the one that bit off her attacker's member) is in a coma. Derek is talking to Meredith and he says, "I have four sisters, if I were in a coma they'd all be here. I'd want them here." Could this have been an allusion to Derek's death? Or is it just a weird coincidence?

6. Maggie Has Alzheimer's Disease
We know Maggie, like Meredith, has genetic markers of the neurodegenerative disease. We also know that Maggie has had some memory problems in forgetting Jo Wilson's name, so could she be developing early-onset Alzheimer's like her mother?

7. Grey's Anatomy Takes Place In The Marvel Universe
One Grey's fans on Reddit wrote, "My theory is that this show takes place in a small corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

10. Meredith Has Had Alzheimer's All Along
One crazy theory is that Meredith has Alzheimer's and that the other characters in the show represent emotions that she has forgotten how to feel. Examples include: Derek = love; Cristina = friendship; Izzie = compassion; Ellis = ambition. So, when the character attached to the specific emotion leaves the show or gets killed off, the emotion goes with it.

11. Another "Meredith Has Alzheimer's" Theory
Like the previous theory, this theory speculates that the TV series will end with the revelation that Meredith had developed Alzheimer's. But this theory is a little different in that it suggests Meredith's voiceovers throughout the show could be stories that she's telling her own children in the future.

12. The Entire Show Is Zola Reading Meredith's Diary
One fan on Tumblr has predicted the ending of Grey's Anatomy as: "What if Grey’s Anatomy ends with a diary being closed by a black girl’s hand. And the camera goes up to reveal a grown up Zola (who’s wearing intern scrubs), and it turns out Meredith developed and died of Alzheimer’s and wrote diaries like her mother did, and now Zola is carrying on the Grey legacy by becoming an aspiring surgeon at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital?"
The carousel never stops turning.
