** Quinten trying to get through to Siren by showing her photos and videos of his own Laurel. She's clearly affected, screaming to wreck the screen and running off but Quinten tells Thea "I just saw my daughter."

* "The Devils Greatest Trick"
** Despite him being an irredeemable mass murderer, the entire episode nevertheless manages to portray Cayden James in an incredibly tragic light. In the flashbacks, we see him as the man Alena previously looked up to so much, a Robin Hood'esque hacktivist who tragically neglects his son as a result and gets arrested while watching one of his sports games. During his illegal and inhumane imprisonment by A.R.G.U.S. he [[AdultFear has to learn that his son has been murdered]], which causes something in him to snap. During the present day scenes, after some back and forth, he finally comes to realize what a monster he has become, willingly turns himself in and helps Oliver with intel, for the sole favour of being allowed to visit his son's grave. [[spoiler:And then he is promptly murdered by Ricardo Diaz, the same guy who had his child killed and manipulated him all along.]]

* "All For Nothing"

* Oliver's torture in ''Kapiushon'' in which Chase finally gets Oliver to admit that Oliver kills not just for Justice or to protect but because he finds satisfaction from killing people. What sells it is just how after Oliver screams it he has a [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone soul-crushing epiphany]] after realizing that in his own way he is no better than the criminals that he has put down. When Oliver returns to the Arrowcave the look in his eyes isn't just a look of defeat but of pure ''shame'' of himself.

*** It's obvious this was a key bit in how this Laurel turned into Black Siren, the loss of a father so young. It's also clear how the pain is still raw for Laurel and Quentin can see it.
