* The ItsAWonderfulPlot shown in the series finale presents cases for the majority of the supporting cast when they didn't have Duncan there to influence them. Horton ends up taking control of the Watchers and ruins their sense of morality, leaving Joe without any hope for humanity, Methos loses one of his great loves and ends up rejoining Kronos to wreak havoc on society, and Amanda ends up degenerating into a more deadly life of thievery, eventually killing off a rich spouse of hers before getting gunned down and decapitated by a group of Watchers. Even characters that died during the run show, like Tessa and [[spoiler: Richie]], are shown to have lived unfulfilling lives, with the latter eventually suffering just as unfortunate a death as in the main timeline.
* Connor's death in Endgame.
-->'''Connor''': One of us has to die now, old friend\\
'''Duncan''': No.\\
'''Connor''': And you know it.\\
'''Duncan''': No.\\
'''Connor''': Good-bye, Duncan, my true brother.
-->'''Duncan''': I love you, Connor.

*** Then it comes back near the end, when Connor goes to church on her birthday, and lights candles for her and Ramirez. And just a few minutes later, he finds out what really happened the night the Kurgan killed Ramirez...

* Heather's death with "Who Wants To Live Forever" playing in the background.

to:

* Heather's death with The montage in the film of Connor and his wife living happily together, and then watching her grow old and eventually die in his arms while he never ages. It doesn't help that the scene is set to Queen's "Who Wants To to Live Forever" playing Forever".
** The dialogue exchange between the two as well:
-->'''Heather:''' Will you do something for me, Connor?
-->'''Connor:''' What, blossom?
-->'''Heather:''' In the years to come, will you light a candle and remember me on my birthday?
-->'''Connor:''' Aye, love. I will.
-->'''Heather:''' I wanted to have your children.
-->'''Connor:''' They would have been strong, and fine.
-->'''Heather:''' Don't see me, Connor... let me die in peace...where are we?
-->'''Connor:''' We're
in the background.Highlands. Where else? Darting down the mountainside, the sun is shining. It's not cold. You've got your sheepskins on, and the boots I made for you. ...Goodnight, my bonny Heather.

** Darius, the kindly immortal priest who was Duncan's MoralCompass for centuries and could reach him even when Tessa and Richie couldn’t, was murdered in his own church after centuries of forswearing The Game and doing no harm to anyone. His death effect Duncan as much as anyone else's in the series. Who Wants to Live Forever plays at the end of the episode just to make sure the tears flow.

*** All the more so, since Duncan proposed to her immediately after remembering a gypsy telling him that he would love many women, but never marry. In an attempt to ScrewFate, Duncan may have actually cosmically caused Tessa's death.
