Mad about McDreamy! Grey’s Anatomy fans went through another box of tissues in the two-hour episode “She’s Leaving Home (Part 2)” following Derek Shepherd’s (Patrick Dempsey) death on Thursday, April 30. But it turns out, they weren’t just upset about his funeral. Viewers were disappointed in how the ABC medical drama handled the aftermath, which (spoiler!) jumped several months to reveal that Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) was pregnant with his child.

Die-hard viewers who’ve stuck with the series for 11 seasons(!) particularly took issue with Shepherd’s funeral that lasted a measly 10 minutes. Meredith was barely around in the first hour, and it went from Easter to Christmas in a matter of 30 minutes. Some were so outraged that they called out creator Shonda Rhimes‘ writing via Twitter.

As for some of the episode’s better moments? Grey’s fans were moved (aka cried uncontrollably) by everyone’s reaction to Derek’s tragic death. A cover of Snow Patrol’s “Chasing Cars” — a staple in the series — was also used.
