* In the "The 15 Minutes Job", while the team is following the mark, they come across a woman whose high school boyfriend has been in jail for the last 14 years. [[spoiler: he was framed as the drunk driver in an accident caused by the mark]]. She's spent the entire time fighting on his behalf, with nearly nothing to show for it. It's by pure chance that the team was able to find and help her. [[spoiler: At the end of the episode, when her innocent boyfriend goes free, she is right there by him.]]
* "The Grave Danger Job": Parker talking Hardison through [[spoiler: being BuriedAlive]].



* Season 4 in general is filled with tearjerkers galore.
** Especially with the second-to-last episode of the season: "The Radio Job". [[spoiler: Jimmy Ford makes a deal with Latimer, despite his son's warnings, because it was all to keep him safe (and for two million dollars). He gets knocked unconscious and wakes up slowly by Nate's phone calling him, and realizes [[OhCrap he's surrounded by explosives and a timer just about to go off]]. Jimmy calmly tells Nate to stay away, who keep telling him he's going to get him, losing his cool and rising his voice to the point of fear because he knows what's about to happen. He gets out of the car and hears his dad say he loves him... forcing him to a shocked stupor. Then the building blows up, all in slow motion.]]

* "The Lost Heir Job" actually gave a tragic backstory to a character who in almost any other episode would have been the VillainOfTheWeek. [[spoiler: CorruptCorporateExecutive falls for the stripper he got pregnant and plans to marry her. His lawyer who cleans up after him doesn't want the scandal and sends her off to Las Vegas, where she has their daughter and dies of cancer two years later. The guy manages to track his now HappilyAdopted daughter down and begins to gradually build up a relationship with her again through her charity. But then his lawyer cuts off contact with anyone and he never gets to explain anything to his daughter. The last time he sees his daughter he mistakes her for her mother who he thought had abandoned him and is thrilled to see her.]]

* The flashback in "The Second David Job" where Nate watches his son Sam die (complete with a particularly harrowing use of the BigNo) certainly qualifies, especially since we as an audience know ''exactly'' what it did to him. The fact that the same flashback is shown several other times doesn't make it any less painful to watch.
** Nate's BigNo is especially heartbreaking as its more of a scream of pain than anything else.
** Nate's whole conversation with Maggie, wherein we first see that flashback, where he confesses the truth about Sam's death is also pretty tearjerker-y.

* "The Bottle Job" has Nate falling off the wagon to sell a con, which is bad. At the end of the episode, he keeps drinking, which is ''worse''.

[[spoiler: He blames himself for the death of his cousin, who he was closest to in the world, and it sent him into a self destructive spiral to the point his panic attacks and feelings of guilt are so bad, he's trying to sell off his family business as fast as possible.]]

* "The Inside Job" has Parker's old mentor/father figure Archie having no idea why Parker would jump the gun and try to infiltrate the world's most advanced security system all alone. When they're finally in contact over comms, Parker simply says, "You were gonna get caught, and they were going to hurt you and your family -- your real family." The way she says it and the look on Archie's face are heartbreaking, as she has clearly felt the difference between herself and Archie's "real" family, knowing they've always been more important to Archie than she was.
