* Amneris confronting her fiancé, and her closest friend, before their trial. If how truly devastated she was by their betrayal wasn't evident enough during "I Know the Truth," the once vivacious and kind princess now shows a solemn and icy demeanor.



* "Elaborate Lives (Reprise)"/"Enchantment Passing Through (Reprise)", as [[spoiler: the lovers are slowly deprived of light and air, embracing one last time before the tomb is sealed for good, with Radames promising to "search through a hundred lifetimes to find you again".]]

* "I Know the Truth". After the lovers have departed, Amneris walks out, revealing that she's heard everything and finally facing the fact that her upcoming marriage is a sham--"it's over, it never began"--all the while still getting ready for her wedding. She doesn't even need to tell us how devastated she is by all of this, it's evident in her stunned expression and her body language. It's an utterly heart-breaking moment for someone who hasn't really done anything wrong except be oblivious to the fact that Radames doesn't love her.

* Aida and Amneris's DarkReprise of "My Strongest Suit":
--> '''Aida''': So a life of great potential is dismissed, inconsequential?
--> '''Amneris''': But I'm only ever seen as being "cute". So I'll flutter to deceive-
--> '''Aida''': No, you must believe that one day you're bound to find
--> '''Both''': A stronger suit.

--> '''Mereb''': There is time, there is a place when love should conquer all. The rest of life is pushed aside as truth and reason fall. But, only if that selfishness can lead to something good. I thought I knew you, Princess, but I never understood. I don't know you...I don't know you..."
