* [[spoiler: Remember how Episode 1 opened with Madoka's dream of Homura fighting Walpurgisnacht by herself? It looked like she was calling for help the whole time. Episode 10 reveals it was a previous timeline and that Homura wasn't screaming for someone to help her. She was ''screaming and begging for Madoka not to listen to Kyubey.'' But she was too far away to be heard.]]

* Madoka [[spoiler: taking Sayaka to see Kyosuke playing his violin one last time. It was possible for her to save Sayaka, but doing so would mean Kyosuke would never be able to play again. Sayaka makes peace with the fact and leaves with Madoka, saying she has no regrets and hoping that he and Hitomi will be happy together.]]

Urobuchi has said that every timeline in which Sayaka contracts is one where she's doomed to die, which means this is the ''best'' possible outcome for her. All because she wanted a guy she liked to be happy.]]

*** Junko mentioning that Homura's ribbon looks like something she would have bought for her daughter if she'd had one. Knowing that Junko bought that ribbon for the daughter she loved so much, but will never remember, despite there being something in her mind that recognises her just a little bit is gutting.

** Or, a more positive but equally heartbreaking interpretation is that Homura failed at granting her own wish... [[spoiler: but she did manage to grant Madoka's request that she not be tricked by Kyubey.]]

* All of that comes to its peak in the scene towards the end of the episode, where Sayaka utterly ''breaks'' and cries in Madoka's arms. Creator/EriKitamura's performance will surely make you cry as much as she.

Creator/EriKitamura's performance will surely make you cry as much as she. And Urobuchi's writing is perfect as well. You know the scriptwriting is good when you have a dialogue that includes the line [[spoiler: "I'm a zombie!"]] and ''still'' makes it incredibly heartbreaking!

* The third drama CD, [[http://wiki.puella-magi.net/Madoka_Magica_Drama_CD_3:_Farewell_Story Farewell Story]][[note]]A majority of this drama CD has been adapted in the first half of the spinoff manga, ''[[Manga/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheDifferentStory The Different Story]]''[[/note]], gives us the details on the past relationship between Kyoko and Mami and it's ''really'' heartwrenching even on observation alone. [[spoiler:Kyoko used to be an idealistic Magical Girl and the only friend Mami had. Then Kyoko's tragedy happened and she grew cynical and argued with Mami... until she decided to go on solo, then Mami desperately tried to make Kyoko stay with her. It ends with Kyoko beating the crap out of Mami, leaving her battered and crying over their broken friendship and her being all alone again...]]

** Because of a few changes, ''Different Story'' explores different elements to the Mami/Kyoko's dynamic. [[spoiler: Like the reason that Kyoko, despite the bad break-up, is extremely protective of Mami. Kyoko sees Mami [[LikeBrotherAndSister like family, specifically an older sister]], and is willing to do a lot to see her survive... that includes the HeroicSacrifice[=/=]SenselessSacrifice Kyoko makes latter on. This is shown via a flash back before she fights Oktavia von Seckendorff; of a time when the two were a team.[[note]]If this sounds heart-warming, that because it is but it's also a set-up... all this flashback highlights is how Kyoko [[NothingIsTheSameAnymore can't go back. That is how destructive Kyoko and Mami split has been...]][[/note]]]]
*** ''Different Story'' shows why Mami was better off dying in Episode 3. The series consists of events (and Kyubey) conspiring to [[BreakTheCutie break her in every way possible]], culminating in Mami [[spoiler:succumbing to her inner demons and nearly becoming a witch, with Kyoko pulling a HeroicSacrifice to prevent it. Later, Mami is DrivenToSuicide because she simply can't cope with the life of a magical girl any more.]]
