** While initially played for laughs, Grif's upbringing, as brought up by O'Malley, makes Grif's mannerisms pretty harsh in hindsight when one connects the pieces. Turns out that as a kid, Grif's parents constantly favored his sister over him (explaining his constant hostility towards others), his father wasn't exactly "stable" (resulting in Grif's consistent opposition to order), and after his mother ran off to join the circus, apart from being left to take care of his sister on his own, the utter humiliation Grif felt at the fact that his mother "turns tricks behind the elephant cage" is what lead to Grif's binge-eating hobbies. It's hard not to feel absolute pity for Grif as he can only bow down his head in shame after being reminded of his horrid childhood, and so broken that he can only say "It was a nice circus".

* Churches bittersweet monologue on a good love and a good memory. He finishes it with [[spoiler:"and hell if you have to spend the rest of your life in a memory why not make it a good one?" Then the camera pans over Blood Gulch.]]

* Sarge's HeroicBSOD upon learning his entire career was just a fake for the real soldiers to practice with. He just silently walks away, and is actually crying when the others catch up.

* Simmons' heartbroken "He's...Gone." when he thinks Grif is dead.

to:

* The trailer starts off with Blood Gulch crew shenanigans, only to reveal Church, now dead, watching them. He laments his legacy and deadness to Tex, who appears next to him. Then there's the end of their conversation, which while maybe not a tearjerker in the sad way, sure elicits ''some'' kind of emotion, especially with the soft delivery of Tex's lines.
-->'''Tex:''' Okay. So then we’re done?\\
'''Church:''' No, ''[sighs]'' no we’re not done.\\
'''Tex:''' Well if we’re not done... let’s get started.\\
'''Church:''' Hey have I ever told you how helpful you are to me? I mean you’re so full of fucking wisdom, what would I do without you?\\
'''Tex:''' Mm. I try my best. And you have no one to blame but yourself.

*** Even worse is that he was told they dropped out of the project instead of straight up abandoned on an ice world. And South continues to be gleefully dismissive of them.

*Episode 22
** After finding out they had been ReassignedToAntarctica instead of being given a real mission, Ohio breaks down crying that her one chance to show Project Freelancer that she was a good soldier was yanked away from her.
**At the end of the episode, Wash comes up to South and CT asking if they'd seen the Triplets, because he wanted to have lunch with them. Even if he was among the top ranking Freelancers, he still cared about his old friends... made worse that now that the Triplets are gone, Wash becomes the target of the others' teasing.

** South and Georgia bullying Ohio, Iowa, and Idaho like the military equivalent of a JerkJock and AlphaBitch pair.
-->'''Georgia:''' Some of us have ''actual'' missions to train for.
-->'''South:''' ''(false sweetness)'' Have fun cleaning our gear when we're done ''Triplets''.
** Ohio, Iowa, and Idaho are friends with Wash and CT... or at least, they were until the latter two ranked in the top ten while the former three ranked at the bottom. The entire thing comes off as the social outcasts losing friends to the {{Jerkass}} cool kids.
-->'''Iowa:''' ''(tentatively)'' See you at lunch?
-->'''Wash:''' Uh... yeah. Sure.



* As explained in the ''Red vs Blue Fan Guidebook'', the reason for Dr Grey's personality. She was relatively normal (we get a breif view of it when she's making a log entry at the temple), but the stress of constantly putting back together the wounded, well, she just kept telling herself to go to her happy place. She lives there now.[[note]]WordOfGod: There were originally plans to have Kimball hearing Dr Grey's journals after the destruction of Harmonia, which would have started off with her normal, and shown her decent into madness, as a reminder of the toll the war has taken on people, but the just couldn't squeeze it into the time they had.[[/note]]
