* Gotta give props to the eldest boy in a cultist family. in "Truth and Consequences": when it came to escaping his abusive father/cult leader, his mother hesitates to take the chance. He didn't. She follows.
* In "Darkness and Light", [[spoiler: the HIV positive girl's father walks up to the man who infected his daughter, looking like he's about to punch the infector. The father grimaces and says, "I've always been proud of the fact that I've never resorted to violence. I'll forget your face, but you won't ever forget mine, you piece of trash."]]
* Loker ''finally'' growing a set in "The Canary's Song". Cal is surrounded by angry miners in a bar, some with weapons, when from out of nowhere Loker grabs a baseball bat and swings for the fences, breaking a bunch of beer bottles. Cal's reaction? ''"He's with me!"''
** Gillian getting rid of the FBI and keeping Cal out of jail in the same episode, especially when she wants a "thank you" (and gets it) from Cal.
