** In a CallBack to Jon questioning his mother whereabouts to Ned [[spoiler: and what kind of answers Jon could receive: his mother is long dead ([[DeathByChildbirth since the day he was born]]), and has been under his feet pretty much his whole life. But she cared for him, ''loved'' him, and her last thoughts were about ensuring his safety from those who could want her child dead.]

* TheReveal puts Jon's relationship with Ned in a new, tearjerking context. [[spoiler:Not only was Jon Ned's nephew by blood, but he was the only living reminder of the sister Ned had gone to war for. Yet his whole life Ned had to treat him as a bastard and keep him at arm's length relative to his own children.]] And perhaps the only reason Ned was perfectly fine with sending Jon to the Wall instead of, say, giving him a place among his guard or letting him ride south to help guard his sisters was [[spoiler: it put as much distance between Jon and Robert (to say nothing of Cersei, who hated Lyanna) as humanly possible.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Also becomes a tearjerker in hindsight, when you consider that the [[WickedStepmother closest thing Jon had to a mother figure treated him coldly]] when in fact, his biological mother loved him dearly and [[MamaBear wanted him to be safe]].

** It also calls back to Melisandre's conversation with Jon in episode 9. She confesses that she doesn't understand the Lord's will. It's implied heavily that she feels horribly guilty about the death of Shireen, but she's simply too proud to admit that to Davos.

* Robb's guilt in sending 2000 men to their deaths, lamenting that the dead wont hear songs.
* Ned's speech in his cell and anger at the Lannisters for what they did to him and his family, and Varys's look of disappointment and hoplessness.

** Melisdandre's next line -- "So did her father. So did her mother." -- is tear jerking [[ParentalAbandonment on a different]] [[ParentalAbuse sort of level.]]

* Not exactly a [[TearJerker tearjerker]], but Gilly's last scene had an elemental of sadness to it. Sam absolutely loves her and baby Sam, but he doesn't seem to truly realise how much she loves him. In an earlier season, despite her unhappiness, he drops her and the baby off at Mole's Town, and when this turns out to a horrible decision (though, admittedly, no one could have reasonably predicted what would happen), he promises they'll always be together. And promptly leaves her behind to go fight in a battle (honourable of him but still incredibly painful from her POV). Then, he essentially tricks her into going to his parents' with the intent to leave her and the baby, and despite her unhappiness, she's even more agreeable than last time. The cycle could have been broken when he decided to take her and the baby with him to Oldstown, but instead, he restarts it. She's shown gazing adoring at him in each scene, she eagerly starts to follow him into the library, and when they're told women and children aren't allowed, instead of taking her to get settled and coming back later (though, really, he should have gotten her settled in an inn or something before coming), he gives her an apologetic look before leaving her behind. He didn't do anything bad, but seeing her subtly hurt, resigned reaction was hard to watch.
