** Finch bringing Root breakfast in her Faraday cage at 4:00 in the morning because he's leaving to help Reese and doesn't know when (or if) he'll be back. His friends' lives are in jeopardy and he's got so much on his plate, but he still takes the time to make sure Root gets fed.

** In reality, when [[spoiler: Shaw knows she's about to die saving the others, she kisses Root goodbye]]. The normally uncaring Root is [[NotSoStoic ''devastated'']], and the Machine itself is nearly as bad. Just goes to show how much both of them care about [[spoiler: Shaw]].

Added DiffLines:

** After an entire episode of Root being openly jealous of Shaw's crush on the [=POI=], Shaw turns down the offer from him to go overseas and instead chooses to stick around for certain death because she tells Root she has "things I care about" in New York.


Added DiffLines:

** Root [[AngerBornOfWorry loses her temper]] when Shaw claims she's not scared of the operatives after her, telling her that maybe she should be because other people are - the people who care for her - and she should think about that next time.
** Shaw begs, cajoles, flirts, and tries everything else she can think of to persuade Root to help her get to John because she's so desperate to help him, even though she knows how much of a risk her being out in the open is. [[spoiler: Root has to ''sedate'' her to keep her out of the fight, and clearly finds it difficult even though she knows it's necessary to [[IDidWhatIHadToDo keep Shaw safe]].]]


Added DiffLines:

** Staring down [[spoiler: an entire Samaritan kill team in the second simulation, Root takes the opportunity to call Shaw and gently flirt and tease her about considering a relationship "someday", telling her they're perfect for each other, and giving Shaw no clue that she knows it's the last conversation they'll ever have. [[PetTheDog Martine lets her finish the conversation before killing her]].]]

** Sort of a case of Fridge Heartwarming, but this case shows just how much The Machine values literally everyone. It chose to save Root even though it knew who she was and that she was gaming the system. Even as dark as she was she still had value, as the Machine would later fully illustrate.

** This troper found the release of Kyle Morrison at the end of the episode very heartwarming, as an innocent man being able to return home to his little girl...*sniff*

** Not to mention the genuine smile on Reese's face as he accepted Bear's welcome home dog-tackle. Not a smirk, or a lazy smile, but a genuine happy smile. This Troper's heart ''melted''.

** When Shaw details how she's killed herself in every simulation to prevent from hurting Root, she puts a gun to her head, saying she'll do it right now. Root responds by pointing a gun to ''her'' head, telling Shaw that she'd rather die than live without her. It manages to make Shaw panic long enough for her to snap out of it.

to:

** Root's utter joy at Shaw's return. The simulations Shaw was put through showed Root as warm and flirty, but the real Root is practically crying in joy at seeing Shaw alive.

Added DiffLines:

** Root talks to Fusco in the hospital, giving him a package with an "exit strategy" so if Samaritan comes for him, he and his son can disappear. She pauses and snags one of the packets of jello off the tray, initially seeming like it's another bizarre request from the Machine. Turns out she's giving it to [[OneOfOurOwn Reese, who's been sitting outside the room for hours. Finch is nearby as well, watching over Fusco.]]
