** Learning that everything has gone straight to hell since the end of Season 5: Rachel's TV show? It tanked...''hard!'' Also, her dads got divorced and her old house is being sold. Blaine's marriage to Kurt? Not only did it not happen, but Kurt and Blaine broke up again. Also, Blaine dropped out of NYADA and went back to Dalton. On the [=McKinley=] end, remember how Sue shut down the New Directions after the Nationals loss? Well, she not only shut them down, she forced the former members to transfer to other schools, meaning if you grew attached to any of those characters, you can forget about seeing them again.

** Santana's face after Finn outs her. Even though later its going to get so much worse, for that one moment, its the absolute worst thing Santana can imagine happening (because even the worst pessimist could not have imagined the ad coming) and its happening right then in a crowded, public hallway. All of her control over what is a very personal, very scary process was yanked out from under her and you can see every bit of that on her face. Its not even humiliation, like Finn is supposedly taking from her trash-talking. Its pure, animal fear, and its gut-wrenching.

*** "Be here when I get back." It's less a demand, less of a request, and more of a plea. Remember for Dave, despite everything else, Kurt has been the one person that knows everything going on, who has forgiven him for everything, and accepts him nevertheless. On top of being the person that made Dave question his sexuality in the fist place. He's basically pleading for Kurt to stick by him so that he has some sort of support network.

** For fans of the newbies their final scene in the choir room was extremely touching. Made worse knowing (with the except of cameos in the final season and GrandFinale) we'll never see them again.
** Slightly mitigated with the reveal that in season 6, Rachel [[http://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/news/glee-final-season-rachel-berry-returns-mckinley-high-2014278 returned to McKinley]] to take charge of the New Directions.
** The video Artie and Holly made for Will featuring the glee club leaving touching and moving messages for his future child.

** Special mention goes to NBK's famous [[WhamEpisode Wham Moment]] where Karofsky grabs Kurt's face and kisses him. Normally it would lead to a comedic "What the hell just happened?!" or a SlapSlapKiss [[FoeYay storyline]], but instead Kurt is as confused as an actual person would be in that situation.
*** Heck, I'm not a regular watcher of the show and that scene got to me. Why? Look at it from Kurt's perspective - he thought that if he stood up to his bully, even if he had to do it a couple of times, Karofsky would eventually get the message and maybe realise Kurt had no interest in him. Or Kurt could threaten him with school disciplinary action. Instead, the Wham Moment happens - knowing Karofsky is gay makes it infinitely harder for Kurt. Now he can't rat him out because he sympathises with him, and standing up to him again would probably achieve nothing. Feeling like all he can do is take the abuse ultimately drives him to leave the school. Worse, he might feel obligated to protect Karofsky because he doesn't want his feelings to be hurt if Kurt rejects him. Amidst all the petty cast it just shows how nice and how human Kurt is, and it's hard watching for anyone who's tried standing up to a bully, in any measure, and gotten nowhere and had no support from their school.
* Terri's false-pregnancy being revealed and Will walking out. She did it all just to make him stay, and it backfired /spectacularly/.
* The montage at the end of ''Mattress''. The look on Will's face alone is heartbreaking. Combine it with their cover of Charlie Chaplin's "Smile"? It's gut wrenching.
* Admit it, you cried during the scene in 1x19 where [Artie uses arm braces to try and walk, crumples to the floor, and refuses to let Tina help him up. It's even more of a tearjerker when you know the things that got him excited were doomed from the start, then watching his disappointment as the inherent problems are spelled out. Arm braces only work when your legs can carry ''some'' of the weight, and the experiments Tina looked up will take years before they reach humans (if successful).

*** Even worse is that when Tina comes back and they go somewhere else, he smiles to himself, completely believing that what he just daydreamed will come true soon enough. Also, when he goes to Miss Pilsbury and starts going on about how he'd need therapy to "help him adjust" after he starts to walk. It's his absolute faith in the idea that these treatments will work and that he'll be able to walk, and his silent heartbreak when Miss Pilsbury tells him that it won't work that gets to me.

** Also on Twitter, the Westboro Baptist Church's huge KickTheDog moment when they posted ''on Lea's twitter'' that Cory was a '''fag-enabler''', [[KickTheDog they're glad he's dead]], and they plan to picket his funeral. (Which they didn't get the chance to, as Cory's funeral most likely took place in his native Canada and the WBC are banned from there.) They then followed that up by insisting that Lea should ''kill herself so their wedding can go as planned'' '''''in Hell.''''' These people truly have no shame.
*** Sadly, this is pretty par for the course for the WBC. Anytime there's a public death or tragedy, they tend to say those exact same things about whatever the situation is. Doesn't make it sting any less, though. Slightly mitigated by the fact that the WBC is banned from Canada, where Monteith's funeral likely took place.

** Later on in a scene with Artie she heart-wrenchingly confesses that she doesn't think it's fair that someone as nice as him can't walk. It's one of the best bets of acting Heather Morris has pulled off.

* Santana'admitting her feelings to Britanny in "Sexy" and how she's afraid to go public because of the consquences. That single moment humanized Santana and launched her from stereotypical bitch to Woobie status. Naya Rivera was amazing in that scene.
