* Also from ''Burial At Sea'', the sad fate of Moses Lydecker. After going through all the hard work of converting Fontaine's department store into a prison in just ten days, he's shot by sentry turrets, crippled in both legs, and left trapped inside the store just as Ryan sinks it to the bottom of the ocean. In desperation, he starts sending out audio logs begging for help through the pneumatic tubes, and ''every single one of them'' comes back [[SomebodyElsesProblem unread]]. And [[FromBadToWorse just to make matters worse]], the player comes across his beaten and bloody corpse right after seeing a Splicer step out of his hiding spot, implying that [[MissedHimByThatMuch if Booker and Elizabeth had arrived just a little earlier, they could have saved him]].
* The haunting realization, as you travel around during ''Burial At Sea'', that everyone you meet, every person you run into, is going to end up either dead or an insane splicer. And that, somewhere in all this mess, a tiny Jack Ryan is growing somewhere.

* Elizabeth's increasingly DeathSeeker attitude throughout Episode 2, [[spoiler:particularly evident during her near-lobotomy at Atlas' hands, as well as when she knowingly walks to her own death, but not before jeering at Atlas simply to [[DefiantToTheEnd get on with it]]]].

Added DiffLines:

** For extra tearjerking: Elizabeth is wearing the brooch Booker picked for her in this scene, but none of the Elizabeths that show up afterwards are, meaning that none of them are "our" Elizabeth--the one we played through the game with. So in a very real sense, Elizabeth's question and Booker's answer are the last words they ever speak to each other.

*** Subverted by the fact that Elizabeth was just using Sally to get revenge, meaning Comstock was the only one trying to help her.
*** [[spoiler:Worse still, Elizabeth watches with contempt as Booker is violently gutted by a Big Daddy from behind and doesn't even flinch when his blood splatters her face. A testament showing she has completely lost her innocence and in some ways as become as bad as Comstock himself.
** The scene when [[spoiler:Elizabeth and the Luteces are desperately persuading Comstock to not take Booker's beloved daughter, who is the only thing that makes him happy, away. It makes it even worse when you realize that [[FridgeHorror Booker might have gone mad with grief.]]]]
