The increasing [[BreakTheCutie decay of his mental and emotional state]] is often discussed throughout the show:

'''Will''': ({{beat}}) It's the ugliest thing in the world.

This is a SubTrope to MyGodWhatHaveIDone -- the character in question experiences that guilt while staring horrified at his hands. If this trope is in a character's backstory, it's [[SympatheticMurderBackstory Sympathetic Murder Backstory.]] If a character is contemplating his or hands for an entirely different reason, usually drug-related, then see ContemplatingYourHands.
