[[AC: Episode 1 - The Saviour]]
* After spending almost all of the last season trying to become allies, Zelena and Regina nearly loose that bond when they argue about the role Zelena played in Robin's death. Zelena meanwhile hated it when Regina went to Snow instead of her, her sister, for comfort and felt that Regina destroyed the part of her that Zelena felt most of an attachment to.

* Henry's eager hopefulness that Regina has found a way to be together with him again that doesn't involve hurting the rest of his family... only for Regina to reveal that her way not only involves killing them, but [[KillEmAll killing everyone in Storybrooke]]. To see him so horrified, [[YankTheDogsChain all his hopes for his adoptive mother dashed]], is very sad to witness. And then, to top it all off, Regina casts a spell on him that wipes his memory of the event.

* In its own warped way [[spoiler:Pan killing Felix to fuel the new curse. The casualness that he does it shows that even the one he loves the most is so utterly disposable to him shows just how shallow the ties he forms with others are... even the one he loves the most is just a tool to be discarded when no longer needed. And the look of absolute betrayal in Felix's eyes...]]

* So Emma's lost her memories of Storybrooke and her friends and family from there. That's pretty bad, but it's balanced by the fact that she has a happy life with Henry and a pretty awesome new boyfriend...[[spoiler: until it all goes straight to Hell. She gets her memories of said friends and family back just in time to learn that they're in danger, she has to abandon her new life to go and save them, and to top it all off, her awesome new boyfriend turns out to be a flying monkey sent by The Wicked Witch of The West to keep her occupied.]] Come on, writers, that's just wrong.

** Judging from Eddy and Adam's treatment of the situation, one the one hand, it seems that her characterization as a parent in season 1 was not completely meant to appear as heinous as that in the end (it was clear as early as episode 5 that she loved Henry, and Emma's power had failed after 11 episodes), and there are clues that she was happy with Henry and him with her at some point earlier in Henry's life (the objects Cora looks at when trying to find how to persuade her to do a FaceHeelTurn). On the other hand, this might classify under CompletelyMissingThePoint and ObliviouslyEvil in her characterization. She ''is'' putting him before her, to make him live the life ''she'' would have wanted in his place. [[TheChainOfHarm Just like her mother did to her]]...

** This is the first time in the season that Regina actually BreaksTheHaughty, telling Emma that she has everything: her parents, Neal, and Hook's affections. Meanwhile, after [[spoiler:murdering her own father, unintentionally doing so to her mother as well, and said mother murdering the only man she's ever loved,]] Henry is ''all'' Regina has. Even Emma looks guilty.

* When Mary Margaret uses the spell to link with Regina...right as she's going through ElectricTorture. Her agonized screams, and David rushing to her side, are bad enough, but when she comes out of it, and describes it as the worst pain she's ever felt...and considering she's gone through losing her mother, her father, being put under the Sleeping Curse (and experiencing the nightmare dimension), almost losing Charming several times...

* Anton's situation. All he wanted to do was explore, make friends, and learn about humans. Instead, Jack and James decide to invoke HumansAreTheRealMonsters in the most manipulative and ''evil'' ways possible, being a FalseFriend, trapping him in human size (albeit, a pretty ''big'' human) robbing the giants, killing off Anton's whole family, and then James turns on Jack and gets away with the goods.

-->'''Emma:''' I was angry at you for so long. Wondering how you could choose to let me grow up without you. Just seeing all this... you gave up everything... for me. And you're still doing that. [[NotSoStoic *crying*]] I'm sorry, I'm not good this. I... I guess I just...I-I'm not... I'm not used to someone putting me first.

* The look of pure joy and [[JerkassWoobie Regina's]] face when Henry calls and asks to meet her for lunch. What we don't see is [[spoiler:her finding out he just said it to get her keys and search the crypt, then sending Charming to get him because she thinks he won't go with her.]] Henry's actions are completely understandable. The woman has seriously crossed the MoralEventHorizon and has [[KickTheDog kicked a whole pound's worth of puppies]] but picturing her waiting at Granny's (probably with a crossbow pointed at her) is ''gut wrenching.''

** It's also a tearjerker for Rumple in retrospect...he knows how it feels to be in Bae's position here all too well.

* Actually, Milah's case IS also sympathetic if one stops to think of it from her perspective: the opening scene shows that she genuinely fell in love with Rumple ''because'' he was the son of a coward who strove to break away from his father's reputation which he suffered from by association. No matter what his justification was, the fact is that he still did something that would brand him a coward and have a negative impact on both Milah and her new child, making them suffer in the same way he had. No wonder she said "I never loved you" later on...from her point of view, the Rumple she fell in love with was a sham and he actually ''was'' just like his father.

** Hell, [[spoiler:Cora's death is actually pretty heartbreaking. Regina places her heart back into her body and a smile of genuine love spreads across her face. Then she feels the effects of the candle... and then comes her [[DyingDeclarationOfLove last words]]. ]]

* In the flashback, Regina's desperation to be forgiven by Snow and welcomed back as a member of her family, and it ''almost'' happening....only for Snow, in a moment of very justifiable anguish, to say the ''worst possible thing'' that could be said in the situation: "she takes it back, she ''won't'' forgive Regina, Regina is evil, always has been, and always will be".
