-->'''Daniel Floyd:''' Then Pourtalés rises to his feet, and takes the piece of paper from his pocket, and says "In that case, sir, I have the honour to inform you that...we're at war." He's still struggling to collect himself, saying "''*sighs*'' I never thought I'd be leaving Russia like this. I don't know how I'll be able to pack." ''*opening piano notes to [[TearJerker/{{Music}} In Flanders Fields]] start to play*'' Sazonov kindly offers to send somebody to help gather his things. And a month later, a million men are dead. The Seminal Catastrophe has begun.

* Despite how much he fought and try, Simon Bolivar's Gran Colombia dream of a United South America failed due to distrust, corruption, a lack of unity and bankruptcy between all of the former Spanish colonies. Simon died a sick man who saw his dream as a failure.

* The Lost Izalith episode is just a bummer all around. Dan first meets Solaire, when the latter is [[HeroicBSOD having an existential crisis over not finding his personal sun]], and later Siegmeyer (aka. Onion Knight), who [[spoiler: dies from exhaustion after fighting the Chaos Eaters, even though he arguably fared better then Dan against them]]. ''Dark Souls'' veterans may also note that [[spoiler: Dan unknowingly passed the point-of-no-return to save Solaire, too, so he's not going to last much longer, either.]]

** The start of the next episode really rubs it in. [[spoiler:Dan is still mourning Siegmeyer and almost immediately finds Solaire who, as was already known, has gone insane, forcing Dan to kill him. These two deaths in quick succession really hit Dan hard and he begins to mournfully wonder who else is going to die before it's all over, while sad piano music plays.]]
-->'''Dan:''' Who is still around? Who is still alive? Who still likes me?

** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-k1PKbt5fI video]] montage for the Gracchi Brothers video is incredibly sad, the music is emotive and the images showing the rise and fall of the brothers is heartbreaking, including the awesome legendary statues at the end.

* The death of [[spoiler:Tiberus Gracchus and ThePurge of his supporters. He had the best interests of Rome at heart, and tried to restore an old agrarian law that had gone unenforced and his reward for that is a shockingly brutal death]]. His famous speech quoted by Daniel is also quite sad in its eloquent observation about how the state exploits its citizens:
--> '''Tiberius Gracchus''': ''"The savage beasts in Italy have their particular dens, they have their places of repose and refuge; but the men who bear arms, and expose their lives for the safety of their country, enjoy in the meantime nothing more in it but the air and the light.They fought indeed and were slain, but it was to maintain the luxury and wealth of other men.They were styled the masters of the world, but in the meantime had not one foot of ground which they could call their own."''

* The "Lies" segment of Admiral Yi says that James was only able to find one critical work of Admiral Yi's life; his own autobiography. In spite of everything he did, he still did not think himself worthy. Fortunately, history was a lot more forgiving.

-->'''Daniel Floyd:''' Korea was free, but Yi would never see it. Thousands turned out to see his body returned to his small home village. People lined the road and wailed at the passing of a man they may never have met. The Chinese Admiral wrote for him a eulogy, and even the court and the king tried to make their recompense. And so passed the man so ill-treated in life; so often demoted and accused. The man who would forever be known as the Martial Lord of Loyalty.
