** Related to the above, "I feel nothing but contempt for you, [[spoiler:Scott]]. Nothing but contempt." Turns someone who's already queen of the Woobies into an even bigger one. All the worse if, like me, you played through the first time [[spoiler:making Scott the nicest guy possible and shipping him with Lauren.]] Augh, that PlayerPunch...

* The absolute worse. Maybe it's the way it was delivered, maybe it was the circumstances that lead to it, but it's devastating: [[spoiler: "Don't forget about me Scotty..."]]

** The BadEnding. [[CaptainObvious (Duh.)]] [[spoiler: If you get the worst possible ending, then all the protagonists are dead, Shaun dies, anyone that could tell the killer's identity dies, and the Origami Killer is free to strike again. [[ShootTheShaggyDog Even worse if Ethan survived everything; not only does his son almost dies in front of him, but he gets gunned down in a police ambush immediately after]]]].

** Any ending where [[spoiler:Shaun and Ethan live]], but especially the GoldenEnding. You went through five kinds of hell and the bullet point above, but it's all worth it, because you saved them and the surviving characters can move on with their lives.

*** This troper bawled for a good 5-10 minutes when [[spoiler:Jason was killed]].
**** And ''this'' troper had to turn the game off and lay down for a while shortly after the third chapter began. It was that depressing.



*** Especially when she gets to remembering about her son, and how she couldn't visit him after she got sick. "He must have thought I didn't love him anymore..."

** [[spoiler: [[spoiler:Young Scott Shelby desperately begging his dad to come help. help pull his twin, John, out of a pipe that is ''slooowly'' filling with water. The drunk loser can't even be bothered to get up out of his lawn chair. And do remember that the reason Scott and John were playing in a construction site is because said drunk loser threw them out of the house.]]

** The first chapter is a slow, plodding piece about a birthday party. Ethan plays with his kids, designs a house, all that stuff (albeit with a very depressing, introspective piece of music playing in the background, giving the whole chapter an ominous tone). Then the second chapter starts with [[MemeticMutation JAYSOOOOON!]] disappearing in a mall, [[spoiler: only to be run over by a car right after Ethan finds him.]] The next chapter is two years later, with Ethan a dispondant wreck, Shaun almost totally unresponsive, and the entire world going from bright and happy to grim and crumbling. A very effective use of MoodWhiplash.
