* There is a scene that is very easily missed in the opening. Remember the moment where Diana, Meg and Eleanor are shown hammering the coffin? Well right before that there is a moment showing them [[spoiler: hammering a bag in the attic.]] By the end of the game we know that [[spoiler: Wendy and the rest of the aristocrats killed Brown.]] We're never told how they do this in the game itself and we are lead to assume that, because of the cut scene that's shows [[spoiler: the imps (the darkest form the rest of the orphans take in Jennifer's head) sweeping a non-bagged Brown]] and the fact that [[spoiler: Brown had previously been seen by both Jennifer and the player as a full grown animal (that would have been hard to put in a bag while still living) up to that point in the game,]] [[spoiler: Brown was put into the bag after his murder.]] However, we are shown during the true ending that [[spoiler: Brown was actually a puppy when the events took place. (Similarly how Jennifer was actually a young girl.]] That brief moment in the opening then gains some meaning. Under the orders of [[spoiler: Wendy]], Diana, Meg and Eleanor [[spoiler: kidnapped a defenseless puppy, shoved it in a bag, took it to the attic, and beat it to death with hammers.]] The fact that three girls could be fooled into [[spoiler: killing a puppy]] is both incredibly disturbing and utterly heart wrenching at the same time.

* The entire game has a very solemn and melancholic feel to it. [[spoiler: Given that you're literally reliving Jennifer's childhood memories, this sort of tone is to be expected.]] As if it weren't bad enough that everyone except Brown dislikes Jennifer, the narration repeatedly referring to her as a "poor, unlucky girl" really nails it in how pitiable the protagonist is.

* Looking at the intro to see [[spoiler: Young!Jennifer and Wendy]] play Princess and Prince in the rose garden is this, once you know what a dark turn it took. At one point, they really liked each other and were at least a little bit happy. And then jealousy and misunderstanding lead to the most horrible outcome possible.

* If the player examines a window during the "Once Upon A Time" chapter, Jennifer will bask in the sunlight streaming through it. The scene is a brief moment of happiness made all the more poignant by the hell she is walking through. Cue TearsOfJoy.

* Brown's sad, unhappy fate brings tears to the eyes of anybody with a heart.
* The ending. Just the ending. You shouldn't be able to feel so sorry for the person responsible for almost everything bad that happened during the game.
* In general, if you're not scared of the game, it'll fall into this category. The incredibly sad thing, when playing the final chapter/epilogue, is how ''fondly'' Jennifer remembers her time at the orphanage when it was actually an incredibly disturbing and traumatising experience.
