* "Johari Window" tells the story of a the town named Edina whose people were badly deformed because of a military experiment with a pulse that hopefully will allow soldiers to become invisible but prolonged exposure caused physical deformities to occur to the people. One of the major people in the project was so consumed by guilt, whose wife and daughter were also affected by the experiment without his knowledge or consent, decided to built a machine that allows the inhabitants to appear normal without the deformities but the people would had to be confined into Edina to stay within range though he did gave the inhabitants a choice to stay to seem normal but confined to a specific area or leave so they can be free but have to deal with the deformities the rest of their lives. The townspeople choose to stay as they would rather have the illusion of appearing normal and forget then having to deal with the problems and did everything in their power to prevent

The story moved the team so much that they plead and eventually succeeded in their attempt to protect the town and its people from intruding eyes.

*** On that note: it's hard not to get teary-eyed over the poetry of how the chaos of the entire series ends exactly how it began: [[spoiler: with Walter taking a little boy with him through a portal]].

* The BadFuture. The universe is breaking apart. The opening credits now include ''[[OhCrap water]]'' and ''hope''. [[spoiler: The other universe, with baby Henry, Henry the cabbie, Marilyn Dunham, Alternate Astrid, Christopher Broyles, Lincoln, Scarlie, Fauxlivia and all the characters we have come to care about, is already gone.]] Walternate [[spoiler: shoots Olivia.]] [[FutureBadass Ella]], who once fixed Walter's story, doesn't believe in happy endings anymore. [[HopeSpot But Walter has a plan.]] A really drastic plan.

*** And later, arguing with Elizabeth and insisting he's not crazy.



*** Walter's accompanying anguished scream of "I'm not loosing my mind!" while cowering away. Even Broyles looks shaken at the state Walters in

** Peter mentioning offhandedly that Walter has become obbsessed with his his (Peter's) childhood recently, and has a habit of checking he's still breathing when asleep. On rewatch, this becomes absolutely heartbreaking [[spoiler: as you discover the original Peter died as a child. Walter is likely not only cultivating the memories of his Peter, but is also petrified of the idea that current Peter might die again]].

** Walters final letter to Peter is Alister Peck's drawing of a simple white tulip. His symbol of forgiveness for all the things that he has done. Whether it is meant as forgiveness towards Peter, or Walter finally feeling he has found forgiveness for himself, as soon as Peter pulls it out of the envelope you're hit with an overwhelming sense of sadness and understanding. It really is the perfect ending. After everything he did, Walter is finally absolved.

** After a whole season of seeing the same childhood memory of a smiling Peter reaching for Etta, only to have her ripped away when the observers come, it is very emotional in the finale to see the same moment play out again only this time Peter reaches Etta and sweeps her up into his arms, spinning her around as she laughs. Just like that, the day goes on.

** Just the look of sheer terror on little Olivia's face when Walter announces that the kids can all go home early. Everyone else starts jumping around and celebrating, and Olive just stands stock still, completely petrified.



* "She's me, only better." Oh, ''Liv''...

to:

* Olivia talking about Altlivia taking over her life. The broken little smile she gives when she delivers the line "She's me, only better." Oh, ''Liv''...

* Although its not our Broyles, [[spoiler: the reveal of the Alternate Broyles mutilated corpse]] is not only disturbingly squicky, but also really distressing.
