* The entirety of Chapter 100, as the main group of friends ends up completely and utterly demolished. Paulo tries to help Mike with his problems with [[spoiler: Sandy]], resulting in Mike [[spoiler: slamming Paulo's face into the lunch table]]. Embarassed, Paulo runs away only to bump into [[spoiler: Lucy hanging out with Augustus. Paulo then lets loose at Lucy for hanging out with the guy who molested Daisy, and starts to confess all of his feelings for her. All that Lucy says however is that she doesn't care, not about Paulo, not about her friends.]] Meanwhile, [[spoiler: Sue chases after Mike, confronting him over what he did earlier and tries to get him to open up about what's going on, but ultimately causes him to furiously snap at her when she asked if the issue was about Sandy (which was correct in the first place). He tears at her, complaining that the group never cared about his problems or about his relationship with Sandy, and always favored Lucy and gave her special attention. Poor Sue can only lament at how toxic and unpleasant Mike has become lately and could do nothing but walk away from him.]] If you add in [[spoiler: Abbey sitting at another table, and Mike's friends getting mad at him for what he did]], then the friend group has never been worse off.

* Chapter 102 finally gives us a look into Lucy's mind following her suicide attempt; [[spoiler:while she sleeps over at Augustus's house, she has a dream about all of her former friends showing no sympathy for her--hell, her version of Sue even calls the whole thing "[her] drama", and Mike shows up just to tell her nobody cares about her anymore, showing she still does care about his opinion. But the real meat is when ''Alejandro'' appears; looks like she didn't just forget "Confrontation" happened after all.]]

* The splintering of the main group of friends. Before the Acapulco arc, the main clique used to be a rather tight-knit group of friends (especially the main protagonists Lucy and Mike), and despite all of the vitriol that they give each other, always had each others' backs, even willing to risk their lives to save each other when in dangerous perils. Come Sophomore year, the circle of friends slowly corrodes as internal grudges and bottled-up emotions rise and {{Love Triangle}}s come forward. The absolute destruction of Mike and Lucy's friendship (with the latter being PutOnABus) was a very critical hit to the group's stability, and even when Lucy came back in Chapter 95, the situation did not get any better. Makes it even more tragic when you realize that every single member of the group is guilty of doing something that unwittingly shatters not only their individual friendships with one another, but their entire TrueCompanions group as a whole.

* Paulo's chances with [[spoiler:Lucy]] sink hard during Chapter 97. Even though he feels like she didn't use him, [[spoiler:Lucy]] tries to bet into his head that the pair was ''never'' going to happen, and their one moment was an act of desperation.

** Even in the light-hearted moments there's still a bit of sadness. As Mike's facing the last opponent in dodgeball, he can't quite shake off all of the [[spoiler:violent antics Lucy did to him]].

* [[spoiler:Chapter 95 has us see Lucy's suicide attempt in gruesome, heartrending fashion. She decides to jump off a building after we're treated to a few pages of her self-loathing internal monologue. And we see her jump too... and watch her not only survive the attempt, but also ''realize'' she survived, is bleeding out, and can barely move. It's a good thing Augustus came when he did...]]
* Chapter 96 doesn't stop the pain train for anyone. While it's more reasonably light-hearted, the end of it has Mike get [[LaserGuidedKarma exactly what's coming to him]] from [[spoiler:Lucy]]. With Mike pussyfooting around so much, it should have been a glorious moment, but the end and the intermission, where all the guilt culminates in him and he breaks down in tears, feels otherwise.
** Even in the light-hearted moments there's still a bit of sadness. As he's facing the last opponent in dodgeball, he can't quite shake off all of the [[spoiler:violent antics Lucy did to him]].
