* ''Series/StrangerThings'': Until this point ''merely'' a [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain racist, homophobic]] [[TheBully jackass]], Troy proves himself to be a complete psychopath when [[spoiler:he gives Mike the SadisticChoice of jumping into the lake or seeing him cut Dustin's teeth out]]. Keep in mind, this is a huge drop, and SoftWater has been explicitly discounted - [[spoiler:had Eleven not [[BigDamnHeroes intervened]], Mike would have been dead, and Troy knew it.]] Seeing Eleven [[BewareTheNiceOnes break the little shit's arm in anger]] after that is [[LaserGuidedKarma incredibly satisfying]].

** Twyin Lannister definitely crosses it before [[spoiler:Tyrion snaps from his abuse and murders him]]. First contender: he is Gregor Clegane's boss, so the fact that he is ultimately responsible for much of the Mountain's atrocities could qualify. However, some may feel that may be too much of OffScreenVillainy to qualify. Second contender: he is the true mastermind behind [[spoiler:the Red Wedding]]. Then again, some might argue that he was simply being ruthlessly pragmatic. But if neither the first nor second allowed him to cross the line, then he definitely crosses it with the third: [[spoiler:letting Tyrion take the fall for Joffrey's murder without caring the slightest bit if he's innocent and if he is executed as a result]]. It's very telling that [[spoiler:he dies]] shortly afterwards.

** Cromwell used Henry's order to get rid of Anne as an excuse to exact vengeance on the five men who played demons in a masque that disgraced the memory of his master, Cardinal Wolsey. He uses hearsay and tricks to convict them of treason as Anne's lovers, sending all five to the block. When it comes to Anne's death, however, Cromwell is clearly not happy with having engineered it.The last shot of the series is him [[ThousandYardStare staring blankly over Henry's shoulder]] in the realization that he's sold his soul in the service of a fickle monster.

** Cromwell used Cromwell, who until now had been a sympathetic character, uses Henry's order to get rid of Anne as an excuse to exact vengeance on the five men who played demons in a masque that disgraced the memory of his master, Cardinal Wolsey. He uses hearsay and tricks to convict convicts them of high treason as Anne's lovers, using hearsay, tricks, and a KangarooCourt, sending all five to the block. When it comes to Anne's death, however, Cromwell is clearly not happy with having engineered it. The last shot of the series is him [[ThousandYardStare staring blankly over Henry's shoulder]] in the realization that he's sold his soul in the service of a fickle monster.

* ''Series/WolfHall'' portrays the execution of Anne Boleyn as one for Thomas Cromwell and Henry VIII.

** Henry, unlike Cromwell, has no qualms whatsoever about declaring that Anne--a woman for whom he had upended the religious authority of England in order to marry--has somehow "bewitched" him because their only surviving child is a daughter and, of course, [[UsefulNotes/ElizabethI that would ruin England]]. When Cromwell arrives to tell him that yes, Anne is now dead, Henry beams like he's just won the lottery and embraces Cromwell like a brother.

** Donna was absolutely right that Doctor needs a companion as a MoralityChain. What happens to the Doctor when a companion is [[spoiler: killed thanks to a Senseless Sacrifice]] in "Face the Raven" and he is immediately imprisoned in a torture chamber, all alone save for the MonsterOfTheWeek, in "Heaven Sent"? In "Hell Bent", the Doctor becomes TheUnfettered WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds willing to risk the destruction of the universe just to [[spoiler: save Clara from her death]], again changing a fixed moment in time. The moment of truth comes when he intends to [[spoiler: Mind Rape Clara of all memories of him, to protect her from his enemies]] -- will he go through with it and lose all hope of redemption? As it turns out, no, and he not only repents for going too far but accepts not only [[spoiler: losing her for good]] but also [[spoiler: being Mind Raped himself and thus losing his memories of her]] as just punishment on his way to returning to his best self.

** Cersei rockets across it when she [[spoiler:commits mass murder by blowing the Great Sept of Baelor sky-high with wildfire, incinerating the Sparrows (including Lancel, who [[DyingMomentOfAwesome tried in vain to prevent it]]), the High Sparrow, the Small Council, Margaery, Loras, Mace, and many, many innocent smallfolk, ''some of whom were nowhere near the Sept''. The act also has an indirect casualty: Tommen, her son, who [[DrivenToSuicide dives out of a window in despair]]]]. If that act isn't enough, just before [[spoiler:Tommen's suicide]], she [[spoiler:tortures Septor Unella by first waterboarding her with wine then leaving Gregor Clegane, a psychopathic serial rapist who himself is well across the Horizon, to do whatever to her]].

* The ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'' character Ralph Moreno was a borderline AxCrazy crook with a huge case of ChronicBackStabbingDisorder from the start. But, he hits a new low after an elderly widow takes him in, after he escapes prison with nothing but his underwear, only to mistake him for her dead husband. Ralph's first instinct is to take complete advantage of her, by asking for "their" ATM number, driving around in her dead husband's car, looting the medicine cabinet, and generally using her confusing to mooch off of her.

** Gideon Malick subjecting his own HYDRA men to the Terrigen fish oil pills without them knowing so either those who were InHuman would have powers or those who didn't would die, at least in-series. But as awful as ''that'' is, nearly having the nuclear missile destroy New York in ''The Avengers'' while on the World Council puts his crossing long before he was even on the show.
