* In flashback, Beowulf is ready to frame Rumple as a monster but Bale gets the Dagger away. Beowulf sniffs that people will never believe them as he marches off. Rumple looks at Bale and realizes what the boy is planning and begs him not to. Angered, Bale orders the Dark One to stop Beowulf. Forced to obey, Rumple snaps the man's neck, then looks at Bale in sadness to realize his own power turned his son to darkness.
* Rumple then uses a potion to make Bale forget what happened. Realizing his father killed Beowulf, Bale snaps he's turning into a monster. He leaves as a sad Rumple realizes it's better his son hate him then remember what truly happened.

* Rumple then uses a potion The whole scene with Blue. Not only does she genuinely, even tearfully, apologize for not having been able to make Bale forget what happened. Realizing save Gideon from the Black Fairy, his father killed Beowulf, Bale snaps he's turning into a monster. He leaves as a sad Rumple realizes previous scene with Gold shows he genuinely does care about her, and actually hesitated when finding out it was her blood he'd need to restore the sword...but he did it anyway, because he "has" to. Then Gold shows up, and with true regret [[spoiler:drains her blood and all her magic, because he didn't want Gideon to take on that kind of corruption and darkness, and he believes she can be saved once the Black Fairy is killed]]. Seeing how far Gold has come after all, that even with the darkness of all the Dark Ones in him he was able to regret this, and did it ''only'' to save Gideon rather than out of malice and power, is tear-inducing enough. But amazingly, after all this time, it's better his son hate him then remember what truly happened.actually a TearJerker to see [[spoiler:this happen to Blue. Not so much a BitchInSheepsClothing, TheScrappy, or a HateSink anymore]].

** More tragic irony: James' whole reason for running away was that he didn't want to become a knight and "kill things." But because he was taken back by King George, he grew up to not only "kill things" but commit outright genocide on the entire Giants race.

* The WhatCouldHaveBeen that the episode revolves around: not only could David's father have come back to him and they could have had a real family if not for George [[spoiler:and Hook]], but he had been about to give James a life with them too, after the boy had run away from George's cruelty. There was a chance he didn't have to grow up to become the spoiled, arrogant, nasty prince he did, but it was dashed. It makes his fate in the Underworld retroactively a lot more sad.

** What makes this even worse is when we find out [[spoiler:George's men didn't kill David's father: Hook did, after saving him, just so he could steal the king's gold and there would be no witnesses. Not only does this make the previous scene more heartbreaking, it leads to Hook being overcome by remorse and unable to propose to Emma out of fear of what will happen if David finds out the truth]].
* Regina's reaction after kissing Wish!Robin [[spoiler:and finding out she felt nothing: "It was like kissing a photograph."]].

[[AC: Episode 10 - Wish You Were Here]]
* Seeing Princess!Emma reduced to a DamselInDistress, begging for mercy and willing to surrender the kingdom to save her parents, makes Regina angry, and visibly disturbed; to us, knowing how strong and brave and badass Emma is and can be, it's heartbreaking (even if it does show how much her parents mean to her).
