** On a meta level, it feels like the end of an era. The end of the new Iron Man, who is now completely beloved by fans and one of the most well-known superheroes, and whose success back in 2008 started the new MCU "plan" and spurned so many brilliant movies. Thanks, Robert.

** What makes this especially hard is that they are shown to have an innocent, almost childlike, artificial intelligence, to see them suffering is in such a brutal manner heartbreaking.

* A fridge one but the bulk of [[spoiler: Killian's]] army are made up of disabled veterans. Some might have been BloodKnights but some -- maybe most -- likely were once good men and women that fought for their country and then were abandoned when traumatized or disabled. Extremis gave them a second chance but turned them into dangerous addicts with only [[spoiler:Killian]] willing to help them. They were in the hands of aggressive drug dealers.

** Kids triggering his episodes could well have a lot to do with an earlier event also: the little boy from ''Iron Man 2'', whom Vanko's drone nearly blew away because he'd been ''wearing an Iron Man mask''. How many more kids have been wearing those, since the Chitauri invasion? How many times has he dreamed about ''not'' diving to save one quickly enough?

* Maya talking to Pepper in the hotel room, and she tells the story of a man who built rockets for the Nazis. At that point, it's just a sad story, but by the end of the film it's absolutely heart-breaking, because the last three sentences describe Maya so well.

And come to think of it, she might be describing Aldrich Killian as well.



* It takes a while to register due to how funny the reveal is, but [[spoiler:Trevor is a guy who was entirely manipulated by Killian through his addictions, and never had any idea he was participating in real events. And then he ends up going to jail for it, though at least he also has a sizable fanbase. And on a meta level, he's telling this to Robert Downey Jr., a man who knows full well how an addiction can control your life.]]

** Which only happened because Tony was ''already'' on that dark path, which would lead to his being an UnwittingPawn in creating advanced weapons that would be used to kill American soldiers. He was only set back on the right path, ironically, by being betrayed by his business partner and family friend, Obadiah Stane.

-->'''Maya''': Fun fact: before he built rockets for the Nazis, the idealistic Werner von Braun dreamed of space travel. He star-gazed. Do you know what he said when the first V2 hit London? 'The rocket performed perfectly, it just landed on the wrong planet.' See we all begin wide-eyed, pure science. And then the ego steps in, the obsession. And you look up, you're a long way from shore.
