*** In ''Major Star'', George is late coming back from his date with General Melchiett. Previous Blackadders would have been soundly asleep; this Blackadder stays up waiting for George, worrying aloud about his safety in the trenches.

* In "Back and Forth," when Blackadder becomes king of England, he makes Baldrick prime minister, despite the fact that Baldrick is an idiot who annoys the crap out of him. It's almost an AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther moment.

** It's also nice to see [[QueenVicky Queen Victoria]] and Prince Albert acting like a HappilyMarried couple, especially in a series as cynical as this one.

*** Although, to be fair, when one has a ''time machine'' it makes being a ruler a little easier.

* Edmund reading a bedtime story for his child wife at the end of "The Queen of Spain's Beard" is surprisingly sweet.

** Heck, when George reveals his talent for [[spoiler: painting]], Blackadder even gives him a genuine, non-cynical ''compliment''.

*** He not only doesn't taunt him, he pretends to believe that Darling volunteered to join them. Despite it probably taking him all of two seconds to guess that Darling was pushed into it by his mad superior, he gives Darling the best opportunity to save face and pretend to himself that he's being brave and loyal.

* In ''Blackadder Goes Forth'', Captain Blackadder, like his predecessors, always puts himself first. However, note how when he ''can'' involve George and Baldrick in his escape schemes, he does. Even though they're both idiots who would probably endanger his plans, and George doesn't even want to go. Blackadder would happily leave them if only one person can get away, but the fact that he will save them if he can is pretty sweet, by Blackadder standards.

* In ''Blackadder's Christmas Carol'', it's kind of sweet to see Blackadder actually acting like a decent person, especially to Baldrick, even as everyone else fleeces him for everything he's worth. It doesn't last, but still.

** Edmund seems to have [[TookALevelInKindness leveled up]] even before the show begins. While he still expresses a combination of contempt and disliking towards George and Baldrick, this seems to be his method of coping with the situation he finds himself in. As a Captain in the British Army he would have had unnumbered opportunities to have them at the very least sent away or locked up on a trumped-up charge, if not have them executed. Even when he finds out that they screwed up and very nearly let him be killed in Corporal Punishment, they're fine in the next episode. It appears that although he doesn't like either George or Baldrick, he secretly enjoys their company to distract from the monotony and terror of the war.
