* The BadFuture. The universe is breaking apart. The opening credits now include ''[[OhCrap water]]'' and ''hope''.

[[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.

** Kate's final message to Raymond. Raymond tearing through the book distraught, and then finding her 'last words'. Her little half smile at the end implies that she was, in a way, partially aware of what she did.

* ''And Those We Left Behind.'' Pretty much all of it. Especially If you've ever had a family member with a degenerative illness. You can fully understand Raymond's need to create the machine.
