* Oz had a throwaway line in "Earshot" where he said the school paper had an obituary section. Speaks volumes on the [[CrapsackWorld crapiness of the Buffyverse]].

Added DiffLines:

* Wesley gets a minor one. He was a smug, uppity watcher who wound up making a huge mess when he tried to have Faith sent out of the country for her murders, and his attitude and ill-advised decisions wind up with Buffy refusing to cooperate with the Watcher's Council any longer, and himself being fired. So when he slowly walks into the library in "Graduation, Part 2," he's genuinely ready to help with the Mayor's ascension, but he sounds so utterly ''defeated.'' This after Cordelia earlier reported that Wesley had been crying after Buffy's rejection. Luckily, he got a new lease on life over on ''Series/{{Angel}}.'' [[spoiler: Before it all became an even bigger mess.]]

** "Bring On The Night." Willow's breakdown after feeling the First inside of her. This is even sadder when you remember that she's hurt her friends before when she was out of control, and the First tried to convince her that she'd do it again.

* Cordelia's main purpose in season one was to appear, trade a few zingers, and scream. But in the episode "Out of Sight, Out of Mind," she gets a sudden burst of depth, in seeing her speak with Buffy about how she DOES feel alone, but she'd rather be alone in the crowd than alone on her own.

It's the first glimpse of Cordy behind the AlphaBitch routine, and we see the scared, lonely, teenage girl she is:

* In the penultimate scene of "The Dark Age," as Jenny flinches away from Giles touching her makes both me and my daughter choke up more than a little.

** The moment in Innocence after Angelus shoves Buffy, she stays sitting on the floor, staring at nothing.

* "Something Blue" where Buffy speaks to Willow about,"Seeing Angel in LA, even for 5 minutes." If you watched [[Recap/AngelS01E08IWillRememberYou the Angel episode that came before this episode and after the previous Buffy episode, "Pangs," you will understand why this statement is so saddening.]]

** Buffy confronting Giles after his suicidal attack on Angelus, screaming at him that she can't do this alone, while bawling an apology for not having been strong enough emotionally to fight and kill Angel before he could have killed Jenny.

And then they both break down crying on each other's shoulders.


Added DiffLines:

* Giles so desperate to believe the poltergeist in "I Only Have Eyes For You" is Jenny, against all the evidence and his usual careful self - it's wrenching. When he finally accepts the truth his expression is so very bleak.

*** Made even worse by the fact that the second "I don't care..." is said in a way that shows without a doubt that it's a lie. She cares. Of ''course'' she cares. But...well, she's sixteen years old, and she doesn't want to die.

** She looks terribly young in this scene. For all her badassery and confidence (and the DawsonCasting) it really hits home that she's still just a girl, condemned to death and scared out of her mind.
