What
* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler: Roman's]] final moment with Sidney is almost ''touching'', but ends up ruined by the tacked-on NotQuiteDead moment. ** What with [[spoiler: Jill turning on him and killing him ("This isn't what we rehearsed..."), Charlie]] could almost qualify as well, except for [[spoiler: the whole "rewarding [[MomentOfAwesome his girlfriend for 'rescuing' him]] [[CompleteMonster by stabbing her in the stomach and leaving her there]]" thing. Add to this said girlfriend being played by HaydenPanettiere and it's less AlasPoorVillain and more Serves You Right, YouBastard. (See also Alison Brie fans after Rebecca's trip off the roof.)]] *** Much like with the[[spoiler: Roman example above, the final moments of ''Scream 4'' have been seen as an attempt to cast Jill off in a tragic light, with a final shot of her face as the press are waiting to talk to her like she wanted.
