* The Condesce's end in the flash is a heavy moment. It zooms out from a sword impaling her to show that Roxy dealt the final blow on her.
* Karkat cannot get a break. He's pulled from the fight with Lord English, and his designated opponent is... Clover of the Felt. Who kicks his ass. Clover is actually [[LethalJokeCharacter very powerful,]] but Karkat has no way of knowing this, and is clearly frustrated by his weakness.

her. After the hell she made the lives of Roxy and Dirk especially, it's only fitting.

Clover is actually [[LethalJokeCharacter very powerful,]] but Karkat has no way of knowing this, and is clearly frustrated by his weakness. It doesn't help when it zooms in on the poor boy on the ground crying when Serenity is shown flying, as opposed to simply looking defeated like John or Dave.

*** This isn't technically the case- Bec is still in there. Jaspers' personality survived the Eldritch Princess Doll being prototyped over it, Equius being prototyped with the Auto Responder just left them both celebrating how awesome they are together, and the other stable Trollsprites seem capable of discerning between their two halves at least to a minor degree. Still sad at the time.

** Add the fact that his memories of being raped while not even being able to walk away afterward due to paralysis, didn't even need to be manually altered by Vriska for him to consider that ''he'' raped ''her'' becauswas too weak even to avoid traumatizing Vriska, and believes her disappointment is her way of disguising her pain that he has no idea doesn't exist. And Vriska torments him further by pretending to forgive him.

* Screw it, all the trolls have incredibly shitty lives, and a lot of them are crippled or were hurt from an extreme roleplaying accident.

* The story of how John died and how Jade met the Calliope who killed Caliborn. Apparently, the Jade that is telling the story is from an alternate reality who spent her three years of traveling through the Furthest Ring alone because one day when she shrunk John and Davesprite so they can go to John's planet, LOWAS exploded, seemingly without cause. Jade tried to bring them back, since she got the omnipotence from Bec, but she didn't manage to. Then, while she slept one day, the victorious Calliope talked to her and explained that there was a reason for the explosion: our John, the one we last saw going to his denizen, struck a deal and the denizen killed off the other version so he can hold up his end of the deal for the John who made it.
* The victorious version of Calliope as well. Jade talks of her as a lonely, hardened soul, obviously affected by what she had to do to beat Caliborn, and who claimed to have no pool of reference to sympathize with Jade's emotions about having lost anyone and she can only understand Jade's loneliness. Calliope pities her(self) and muses the reason her alternate version is like this is because the lack of human friends...human friends who allowed our Calliope to be the sweet girl we know her as but made her incapable of winning.

* Just when you think that Vriska and Tavros are starting to get along better, Vriska interrupts a heartfelt conversation between the latter and Jake and starts belittling both of them, accusing Tavros of lying to Jake. One can only hope that she's trying to go somewhere with this and that recent CharacterDevelopment wasn't for naught.

* There is just something piercing about Dave and Dirk's heart-to-heart discussion of their respective guardians. While Dirk knows [=adult!Dave's=] exploits only through his movies and urban legends, at least he also knows that his Bro cared about his survival, since the apartment was stocked with everything he'd need to survive. Dave's Bro may have been around in the flesh but Dave has PTSD from his incredible lack of childrearing skills and has trouble believing Bro cared at all about his existence except as another kind of puppet. It gets even more wrenching when Dirk's splintery self-loathing happens to make him broken in exactly the ''right'' way to give Dave the apology he needs to hear... and when Dave points out that being able to recognize his own failings means Dirk's still trying to be a decent person, recent setbacks notwithstanding. And then it reaches a painfully sadsweet climax with Dave apologizing for giving into his urge to hug Dirk.

* Alpha Vriska viciously insulting and bullying Dead Vriska in retalliation for the [[SarcasmMode horrible crime]] of ''not'' being a sociopathic asshole. She gets so cruel with it that she actually drives Dead Vriska to tears. If there was any doubt that Vriska is still the petty, horrible little bully she was before the asteroid, it's gone now. And than not only does Meenah not stand up for Dead Vriska, she breaks up with her because Dead Vriska has become a nice and happy person and [[EvilCannotComprehendGood Meenah just can't stand that]].

* [S] Terezi: [=Remem8er=], which shows Vriska and Terezi remembering happy moments from their childhood and as the Scourge Sisters. While mixed with HeartwarmingMoments, it also serves as a kind of homage to the trolls and kids who've died over the course of the comic's run- we see the kids who died in [S] GAME OVER awaken in the dream bubbles as their eyes slowly turn to the blank white pupils of the dead, Equius and Nepeta reuniting, Eridan awaking and seeing Aradia with Sollux and Feferi in tow, and we see a long scrolling set of panels showing other dead selves awakening- such as the John who was stabbed by Jack to go God Tier, Grimdark Rose, the Roxy killed by the Red Miles, the Dirk who sacrificed his head to synchronize and unite his fellow Alpha session members, the Dave killed by Diamonds, the dreamself of Jade who died saving John's dreamself, the dreamself of Karkat who was killed by Jack ... just so many.
** It gets better when you remember that the eyes don't go white until they remember that they've died. All these kids are remembering that they died as we watch.

* The happy ending is wonderful... but is missing several characters, Terazi and Vriska most of all. Terazi in particular spent all the cheerful post victory celebration looking pensive and depressed, and notably walked away from the rest of the group. Considering she was one of the biggest contributors to the happy ending, it's even more depressing that she appears to be one of the few who didn't get one.
