** Connor, utterly broken, revealing just how much he wishes Angel would have stopped Holtz from taking him. The boy's brokenness and Angel's choked up reaction to it is just painful to watch.

** The massive MoodWhiplash that ends the season. The gang return from Pylea, having defeated the bad guys, freed the slaves, saved both Fred and Lorne, Angel is positively giddy as he throws open the doors ... revealing Willow, looking like she's been crying for a week, sitting in the lobby all alone waiting to deliver [[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS5E22TheGift the]] [[OurHeroIsDead news]].
-->'''Angel:''' ...It's Buffy.

* Couplet (3x14)
**For context: Angel has been coping all episode with Cordelia pretty much exchanging him for Groo. At the very end, he's cradling baby Connor in his arms, and bumps into Wesley:
-->'''Wesley''': ... oh. I thought I was alone.
--> '''Angel''': ''(looks at Connor)'' So did I.
--> ''(Wesley covers a tablet he's just decoded: [[spoiler: the Father shall kill the Son)]]''

** The gang cleaning out Cordelia's apartment. Particularly given that it means leaving Phantom Dennis there alone, and he's obviously not taking it well.

Added DiffLines:

*** Not just that, but also from Angel's perspective. Wesley was one of his best friends, to the point that when Angel returned to the gang the previous season, he was completely okay with Wesley taking the lead and being the official 'boss' for Angel Investigations. But he didn't trust Angel enough to come to him about this, to trust Angel enough to talk to anyone. As far as Angel is concerned, this was a betrayal from someone close enough he may as well have called brother. Small wonder Angel is ready to kill him.
*** Really, those last few minutes are horrible for the group. This is effectively the moment that the gang fractures, and they never really manage to heal from it.

** Wesley smashes the Orlon Window, thinking it might bring Fred back. Instead, it undoes all of his altered memories, and everything Cyvus Vail has erased--Connor, Wesley's betrayal and separation from the team, Angel trying to kill him--all comes flooding back to him. When it's over, Wesley just lays there, staring at Angel with a horrified look on his face, as he realizes that Angel has been carrying the burden of these memories--and the knowledge of what Wesley did--for all this time.
