* Let it be said that Andrew's entire existence in this movie is just sad. So much what if about what he could have been if only he had even a snowball's chance in hell for a good life before the events of the movie.

* Of course, Matt ends up having it rough as well. He starts off having trouble using his powers, then tries to set up some rules about using them just when it begins to all get out of hand. [[spoiler: Of course, it only ended up working for him. All the above events (many of which he wasn't aware of) end up resulting him having no choice but to fight and kill his cousin, both of them causing some damage to Seattle in the process, and now he's pretty much on the run since they were both found to be equally dangerous. The last time he had a normal life was with Casey at a children's birthday party before an emergency broadcast reports an disaster at the hospital. At least he's content with traveling the world to find out how this all even happened to begin with.]]

** Combined with FridgeHorror. The one time Andrew DOES drink, it leads to him being humiliated and it marks the moment dominoes really start to fall.

* What really makes the moment is that [[spoiler: Matt is crying and screaming at him to stop and he's obviously in complete despair over what he knows he has to do. After the deed is done, he just collapses into a sobbing wreck. He really did love Andrew.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Really, anything Richard does to Andrew. The very first time we see him we get a rather brutal and frighteningly realistic beating for a reason that is so petty it almost goes far beyond that (not opening a door when told). And he just keeps adding emotional abuse on Andrew any chance he gets, particularly by telling Andrew that his friends don't give a damn about him, completely averting the cliché of such abuse being only physical.

** It becomes more tragic when you take into account that Andrew tended to confide more in Steve than he did with Matt. Steve was the only person he really opened up to. Likewise, [[spoiler:in the director's cut Steve tells Andrew about his troubles with his own parents that he doesn't want anyone else to know about]]. Given how close they became, it was very heart wrenching to see Andrew push Steve away [[spoiler:then accidentally kill him]], especially since he most likely didn't mean it when he said Steve wasn't really his friend and was probably just lashing out in anger due his father's abuse and lingering words, since [[spoiler: he tearfully (we don't see his face, but he sounds tearful) says at Steve's grave that he misses him and is very sorry for killing him]].
