* The good ending. [[spoiler:Cole realizes that everything he had been fighting for is a lie and that's he unsure of what will happen once he fails to be there for empire city. He also reflects on the fact that Moya's still planning "God knows what'", that he's also unsure of Zeke and that with Trish dead he concludes "I've never been more alone".]]

** Way I read it was they felt there was no more Jack could do as Kessler had already succeeded in his terrorist attack and were pleadingly asking him to come home (which would explain why he wasn't getting further support or communications), but he's unable to let go and pushes on alone.

** [[spoiler:In the evil version, it's even more sad because she dies hating you and what you've become. Not the best way to go.]]

* If you collect all the Dead Drops in the first game, it's revealed that the chopper trying to pick up John when he and Cole first met really was from his agency, trying to pick him up and bring him home. He was so ProperlyParanoid by that point he thought it was the First Sons and fled. [[spoiler:If he'd left Empire City, he never would have become The Beast, and the genocide in the second game never would have happened.]]

** The good ending of the second game is even worse. [[spoiler:Cole not only kills himself, but every other Conduit in the world. It stops the Beast and cures the plague, and Cole is finally hailed as a hero. Too bad he'll never hear a word of the praise.]]
*** It doesn't help that the last scene in the game with this ending is Zeke narrating a comic book cutscene about all of this, [[spoiler:emerging into a crowd of people at one point carrying Cole's now dead body. By the end of the scene, where he's standing on a boat, beside a coffin, as it drifts off into fog, I couldn't help but cry. "Sometimes, I hear folks talking about humans and Conduits like they're totally different. That's bullshit. Cause there ain't nobody with more humanity than Cole Macgrath. I love you, brother. And I'm sure going to miss you."]]
*** There's a minor Tear Jerker in the good ending that may be overlooked by most. Throughout the game, a phrase in bold white text will occasionally pop up at the top of the screen, telling you what your current objective is. During the final scene of the game, [[spoiler: as an obviously very reluctant Cole stands in front of the defeated Beast, holding the RFI, the game instructs you to hold down all four shoulder buttons at once to activate it. Once you've done so, the objective simply reads "Let go".]]
*** [[spoiler:Kuo and Cole's dialogue when he's about to use the RFI:]]
---> [[spoiler: Kuo: Do it...]]
---> [[spoiler: Cole: It's OK.]]
---> [[spoiler: Kuo: It's not OK. You made the right choice. Hell, even Nix made the right choice. I was... I'm scared.]]
---> [[spoiler: Cole: I am too.]]
*** Of all the difficult points during the game, that was the toughest thing for me to do. I had tears welling up, and was holding my controller in a deathgrip, for nearly a minute. Knowing what would happen [[spoiler: when I let go]] just made it hurt so much.
** Hell, even the ''evil'' ending of the second game is a huge tear jerker. [[spoiler: First Cole has to kill Nix, whom he's been helping most of the game.]]
*** And if that wasn't bad enough, [[spoiler:Cole has to [[KickTheDog fight Zeke]] immediately afterward. After some [[DialogueReversal reiteration of what they said before]] about "half as long, twice as bright," Zeke basically acknowledges [[HopelessBossFight he has no chance of winning, but is going to fight Cole anyways]]. Zeke shoots Cole once, and the game [[PlayerPunch makes you zap Zeke with one basic attack, over and over]], until he stops getting up. The shout of anguish Cole makes as he smashes the RFI seals the deal.]]
*** The worst is the way the lines are delivered before that:
---> [[spoiler: Cole: Half as long...]]
---> [[spoiler: Zeke: ...twice as bright.]]
---> [[spoiler: Zeke: I gotta try.]]
---> [[spoiler: Cole: I know.]]
*** Oh, and the final cherry on the depression sundae? [[spoiler: The Beast, whom everybody had thought to be ChaoticEvil up until comparatively recently, finally gives in and admits that he can't live with what he's become and what he has to do, even if the destruction's in a good cause. And during this scene, the gigantic lava-skinned monster is leaning against the wall of the cathedral, hanging his head and looking every bit as tired as he claims.]] Yep, for just about everyone in the endgame, BeingEvilSucks almost as much as [[BeingGoodSucks being good.]]
*** The evil ending: [[spoiler: Cole becoming the beast makes all of Kessler's (Cole's) efforts to stop the beast and Trish's death in vain]]. A bit like the fall of [[StarWars Anakin Skywalker]].
