* The time travellers who were flung to the "wrong" point in time and spent ''years'' living as temporal fish out of water with nobody to relate to. Particularly so in the case of [[spoiler:Kiera's partner, who arrived in '''1975'''. Imagine being sent back to the 1970s from 2013, never mind 2077]]. The worst part is that she's suffering from severe Alzheimer's, which was cured in her original time.

* Sonya's betrayal of Travis: To elaborate, Travis learns from Sonya that their mentor and father figure, Kagame, just performed a suicide bombing, which devastates them both. Sonya then pulls a gun on Travis, and explains that Kagame wanted her to succeed him instead of Travis. When he tries to reason with her, she shoots him six times in the chest, and he passes out while silently weeping on the floor. What really sells it is Roger Cross's subtle yet incredibly emotional performance. You can see the culmination of the betrayal of his lover and mentor have on him before he passes out.

* Kiera having her hopes of returning hope destroyed again when she realizes that the time machine Jason built is really just a model version made of old bicycle parts and CO2 tanks.

'''Alec:''' ...free of revolution, free of corruption. His future is bright, and it's because of you Kiera. It's the price of love, real love. You'll understand, in time.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Kiera's CMR creates the (almost believable) illusion [[spoiler:that she has returned to 2080 and her son; she is told all the events of the series were just a dream. Alec wakes her up from the false return; her reaction to that is a weary and sad resignation.]]

* The series finale. [[spoiler:Kiera's goodbye to Alec and Carlos, followed by her return to the future, her reunion with Alec and seeing her son again... ''then'' the WhamShot in the park and '' many'' [[WhamLine Wham Lines]] from Alec. It was basically expected with the way time travel works in this series, but still a massive gut punch.]]

-->[[spoiler: '''Alec:''' You made a better world, Kiera.\\
'''Kiera:''' What?\\
'''Alec:''' We thought you died that day. Carlos, Julian and I dedicated ourselves to building a better future. And we steered civilization inspired by your sacrifice.\\
'''Kiera:''' But Sam?\\
'''Alec:''' This is the price for making the world a better place... ''this'' Sam will grow up in a world free of violence...\\
