** The same applies for the swelling music when Giles finds [[spoiler:Jenny on the bed with her neck snapped]]. The ''O Soave Fanciulla'' aria from Puccini's ''LaBoheme'' is a CrowningMusicOfAwesome and already a TearJerker in itself, but the use in this scene is heartbreaking.

* Xander and Dawn trying to make thins work even though her emotions are reset and she doesn't love him anymore. It's just so painful that it's honestly a relief when Xander realizes they have to break up.
** We get an echo of Spike and Buffy from ''Chosen.'' Dawn tries to snap Xander out of Dracula's thrall by saying she loves him...
---> '''Xander''': No you don't.
** Worse, the emotional reset means Dawn has to to through Joyce's death ''again''.
* Willow's love life. She realizes she can't really trust Arwen since Arwen is a trickster deity and breaks up with her. She then starts dating Lake, but when she decides to stop working with the government that relationship ends too.
* Spike's arc shows us that even if he's functioning better than he did in season 7, his insecurities are still a huge problem for him to the point where he's so sure he's not good enough that he tries to break up with Buffy [[spoiler: who thankfully snaps him out of it]]. When Archaeus sends him false dreams to make him think he's killing again, Spike thinks he's going mad again. He's also ''terrified'' of letting Buffy in his head since he's scared his past will run her off.
** The fact that ''Harmony''of all people manage to bring the majority of those insecurities to the fore only makes it more painful.
* When they realize they have to leave Dawn behind in a hell dimension to close a portal and prevent an apocalypse. Buffy outright breaks down, and Spike is unable to comfort her right away since he's still angry Dawn was left behind.

---> "But I don't understand! I don't understand how this all happens. How we go through this. I mean, I knew her, and then she's, there's just a body, and I don't understand why she just can't get back in it and not be dead anymore! It's stupid! It's mortal and stupid! And, and Xander's crying and not talking, and, and I was having fruit punch, and I thought, well Joyce will never have any more fruit punch, ever, and she'll never have eggs, or yawn or brush her hair, not ever, and no one will explain to me ''why''."



*** What'a chilling about The Body was the long, eerie silences strategically placed throughout the episode. Also, Anya's stumbling attempt at human connection:
---> "I wish Joyce hadn't died! Because, she was nice. And now, we all hurt." I started crying all over again when she said that.

* Buffy has always been a source of pain and tears, but when she first began watching it, the first breakdown came during the final scene of "The Wish", with the sad music playing as Buffy stakes Evil!Xander, Oz kills Evil!Willow and then Buffy [[spoiler: gets her neck broken.]] All interspersed with Giles.

* Despite it being an alternate reality, watching all those much beloved characters die in "The Wish" was heartbreaking...but by far the hardest was seeing Oz stake Willow.

-->'''Angel:''' There's gotta be some way we can still see each other.
-->'''Buffy:''' There is: tell me you don't love me.

* Basically... everything around Joyce in the first half of the season. A few little hints horrifying in retrospect, but then Buffy and Dawn have to try to deal with what so many others will: Their parent falling apart from something random and natural. In some ways, it's worse on a repeat viewing: At least, the first time, there was hope things would turn out well.

** The titular Mummy Girl's fate is also sad when you consider how she was killed so many years ago, never really getting a chance to live her own life or anything, and when she ''does'' it comes at the price of killing people, repeatedly. This troper could ''never'' see her as being any worse than an AntiVillain, because despite her actions by the end I felt really sympathetic towards her.
*** I really sympathized with her too. She never got to have a real life until now, and she was enjoying the world and finally getting to experience it. It wasn't her fault that she would crumble to dust without draining the life-force of others, and she really did love Xander. That episode was heartbreaking, and I've never felt so bad for an antagonist in anything.

* 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.



*** And let's not forget the song that play's in the background, from the movie their watching, originally an innocent little love song from a cute Shirley Temple movie now has a finite connotation in regards to her first real love. "Goodnight My Love" just the moment when the music swells back up as Buffy seeks comfort in her mother's arms and fades to black.

* How about Giles discovering Jenny's corpse at the end of what looks like a setup for a romantic encounter? This troper saw it coming, but that didn't lessen the emotional impact.

** And then they put the rose scene in the ''title sequence''. Just in case anyone forgot that heartwrenching moment. I hate you, Whedon.



** Whedon freely admits that he does it because he ''hates people''. Despite the undeniable awesomeness of some of his writing, the man is a ''bastard.''



** This troper made it through all that and then completely broke down at the end, when Willow shows up to do the computer class. Yes, Jenny's really dead, and yes, life has to go on anyway.



* Was this troper the only one strongly affected by "I Only Have Eyes For You"? I don't even like Buffy/Angel, but it was so tragic... I'm a huge ''Buffy'' fan, but that's the only episode I currently have on my iPod.
** Oh, you were definitely not. I cried absolute buckets at the end of that episode.
*** The hell with buckets. This troper cried a whole bloody ocean...
* I seriously can't be the only one who went just a little blurry eyed for Drusilla in ''Becoming: part 1''? In this episode we see a flashback to a sane, human, ''innocent and well-intentioned'' Drusilla back in 1860, thinking she is performing confession to her priest- who is actually Angelus in disguise. She confesses about her terrifying and agonising visions, and you see just how scared and utterly helpless she is. pre-soul Angel then goes on to tell her that she is the spawn of the devil and that for her, there is no salvation. The way that she begs him for his help is absolutely heartbreaking, especially seeing as you know what Angel does to her [[YouKilledMyMother further]] [[RapeAsDrama down]] [[ColdBloodedTorture the]] [[MindRape line,]] and what [[FaceMonsterTurn he turns her into.]] At the very worst, Drusilla is a JerkassWoobie. In my opinion, she's a victim and this scene really highlights just how incredibly alone and hopeless she was.
* I hope I'm not the only one who was really moved by the ending of Becoming part 1. We get Buffy that is off to fight Angel while everyone else is still at the library with the spell to restore Angel's soul, only at this point vampires start popping up and taking everyone out from Willow to Xander to Giles, and then Drusilla comes in and offs Kendra. Aside from Buffy (who actually gave herself up to The Master last season instead of losing to him in a fatal fight), this is the first time we've really seen a vampire slayer lose in a fight - and their life. What follows is Giles being taken away by Drusilla and Buffy arriving back at the school all too late, with the music that had been playing throughout this whole scene finally coming to an end, with Buffy running back to the library in slow motion and we even hear the sound of a heart beating. This troper was really affected by this scene and is probably one of the best cliffhangers to an episode for this one.

** Congratulations, Joss Whedon. You hold the honor of having created the only TV show (or book, for that matter) to ever make me cry. And trust me, that's pretty dang awesome for the stuff I watch/read.
** Oh god, seconded completely. I cry every time I hear "Full of Grace" now.
** This troper has a best friend who spent the entire series up 'til Surprise completely loathing Angel for reasons unknown. Come Surprise, you decided she kind liked him. Come Innocence, she decided she liked him a lot. Come the beginning of Becoming Part Two, he was without a doubt her favorite character for life. Come that moment, she got a look on her face that was about as Tear Jerking as the scene. No joke.
** This troper got pretty teary-eyed earlier in the episode; when Drusilla hypnotises Giles and pretends to be [[StuffedIntoTheFridge Jenny Calendar]].

** For some, the episode was less of a {{Tearjerker}} and more incredibly dark. It undoubtedly counts as terrifying either way.



** I'd say Buffy staking Xander has the edge. It's the pure hatred on Xander's face as he goes for her and the total indifference on Buffy's as she stakes him - this from two people who adore each other in the real world.



* I defy anyone with a soul to watch the ending of "Wild at Heart" (especially Willow's "Don't you love me?") without feeling said soul die a little.



** God, yes, the end of that episode, as she sits on that swing trying to understand what she did wrong, and why everything's going dark...I bawled.



** It was the very end of that episode which felt like a punch in the gut. Buffy returning home...and then you see her mother just laying there on the couch... "Mom? ...Mom? ...Mommy?" This troper didn't see it when it first aired, but an aunt and friends saw it together. Said aunt described the moment after as quiet enough to hear a pin drop, and they sat there staring at the screen without blinking for the next five minutes.
* And if there's anyone who can make it through "The Body" without sobbing, I don't want to know about it.
** Even on repeat viewings, I still don't make it to the opening credits. All it takes is Buffy saying one word: "Mommy?" and I'm done.

** ''"We're not supposed to move the body!"'' is the line that gets me, along with Buffy's look of complete horror as she realizes what she just said and collapses shaking into Giles's arms.
*** Just reading that quote... I think I forgot to [[SandInMyEyes turn the faucet all the way off]].
** Xander's reaction to Joyce's death hit hardest for me. In his grief, he tries to deduce that Joyce's death was somehow supernaturally linked, because up until now, that's how most people died around them: someone is killed, dramatic music plays, the Scoobies figure out who/what the culprit is, they slay it, and then optional mourning if it's a character who is particularly endearing (Jenny Calander, Dr. Gregory, etc.). But the standard supernatural procedural never happens because that not what happened. Joyce died how the majority of people die: a sudden, natural death that could not have been avoided and [[DeathIsCheap cannot be justifiably reversed.]] Her death utters the reminder of how permanent - and natural - death is (at one point, Buffy opens the door after the EMT guys leave and she's waiting for Giles and the medical examiner, but she's not greeted by the monster of the week or empathic weather patterns: just sunshine, birds chirping, and kids playing in the street. Joyce's death will not make the newspaper like how most deaths in Sunnydale do because it's just another day for people outside of the Buffy's circle). The Scooby Gang is dealing with a situation that every viewer has gone - or will have to go - through at some point. This episode plays out just as how a day would go if someone close to you died, and I'm pretty sure everyone reading this can relate.

* What happened to Tara in "Tough Love" was hard to watch. This troper finally broke down in the final scene, where Willow has to feed Tara like a baby.



*** That bit of dialog was, for me, one of the few redeeming scenes that Dawn had. By and large, I found the Dawn arc(s) painful to watch due to high levels of [[SympatheticSue emo sue]].
*** It wasn't Dawn that made that scene for this troper, but Spike clearly wanting to comfort her and having no real idea what to do.



** Damn it, all of the MindRape storyline. Look at Tara. DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything? No, okay think. She acts unnervingly like someone with severe mental disabilities. Depressing to say the least, but as said before [[AndIMustScream she is aware of this...]][[PrecisionFStrike shit.]]

** What got this troper was [[spoiler:the fact that if you look at Buffy's face as she dies, it is clear that she died in agony.]]



*** This troper held it together right up 'til the part where she realized that Spike was openly crying.
** Not to mention the music playing in that scene, that music would make me cry even without the dialogue and video.



** Also, when the demon asks why Spike's protecting Dawn, despite not having a soul, and he says "I made a promise to a lady." This troper came to the sudden realization that Spike loving Buffy was no longer a humorous plot point.

Cue to him basically dismissing her plea and her flipping off the stage and dancing like crazy. She [[FridgeHorror HAD TO KNOW THAT WOULD KILL HER]]. And then Spike giving her a lesson on living.

*** Try watching this episode right after "Family", with the knowledge of Tara's abusive past fresh on the brain--she spent most of her life being ''told'' to sit back and keep her mouth shut or else. Willow, how could you?!

** Pretty much that entire episode, particularly if you know what's coming. The most heartbreaking moment for this Troper was when Anya was reciting her final version of her vows - how being with Xander taught her what love really is - while Xander was walking through the rain, leaving her at the altar. Heartbreaking.
*** I knew that the break up was coming (thanks a lot, tvtropes, for all your spoilage), so the saddest part was when Anya is getting ready with Tara and Willow and says with sincere, utter joy: "He's my best friend. I'm so happy that I get to spend the rest of my life with my best friend". She was so happy at the moment, and knowing that by the next episode, she was going to be utterly devastated and hate Xander, was just really heartbreaking.

* So am I the only person in the universe who cried when [[spoiler: Tara]] died? "Your shirt"... cue buckets.
** (raises hand) I cried so hard and for so long that it scared my roommates. And I'd been warned, even.
** I teared up just reading that.
** This troper didn't, but that's only because he was too angry about her being killed off.
*** Ditto. I was especially peeved at the [[DiabolusExMachina sheer contrived nature of it]] to allow it to have any genuinely sad reaction to it.
** This troper still marks it as one of the absolute saddest Whedon deaths. Which is saying something.
*** Remains the one supporting-character death I have not forgiven Creator/JossWhedon for, though mostly due to rage at the aforementioned DiabolusExMachina. Seriously, at least (''Serenity'' spoiler) [[spoiler:Wash]] had a CrowningMomentOfAwesome before his untimely and damn-it-I-should-have-expected-it-but-I-did-not demise.



** Of all the terrible things that happened in Buffy, this is the one that kills me the most. I've only been able to watch the last three episodes of S6 once and I'll be surprised if I can ever bear to see them again. I'll also probably never be able entirely forgive Joss, no matter how much I respect his skill as a storyteller.



*** This episode COULD have been possibly the biggest TearJerker in ''Buffy'' history, if Tara had actually appeared to Willow.



* A mild one is "Never Leave Me," where Spike keeps telling Buffy to kill him. Oh, you poor, screwed up thing.

* 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}}.''
