* Cynthia Weaver has spent the last forty years obsessively maintaining the town's lights for the sake of the man she loved. She doesn't seem to have a personal life of any sort, and since she's the only one who knows how important her duty is, she's regarded as the town kook. Her graffiti alternates between gushing about how much she loves [[spoiler:Thomas Zane]] and cursing him, and one instance talks about how "darkness waits in her dreams". Does that mean she thinks her mission is hopeless, or that her dreams provide some respite from a life of constant bright light?

She doesn't seem to have ''had'' a personal life of any sort, and a career before this, but that's all gone now, and since she's the only one who knows how important her duty is, she's regarded as the town kook. Her [[spoiler:Thomas Zane]] basically ''used'' her to prepare Bright Falls for Alan Wake's arrival, and her graffiti alternates between gushing about how much she loves [[spoiler:Thomas Zane]] [[spoiler:Zane]] and cursing him, and one instance talks about how "darkness waits in her dreams". Does that mean she thinks her mission is ultimately hopeless, or that her dreams provide some respite from a life of constant bright light?

* Being [[spoiler: unable to save Emma in the first two iterations.]] It's even worse the second time around, since she'd already turned GenreSavvy and it still didn't help.

* The warehouse where you come across the radio playing "War." It's hard to go through the subsequent battle without being moved to tears by the lyrics talking of how you're fighting against the impossible and how you're never alone on the front lines.
