* In the Season 5 episode ''Paris Is Burning,'' Mellie lists some of the absurd and belittling things she has had to do as First Lady to Olivia, since Olivia is going to "take over" for her. She is able to make a kind of peace with Fitz, which is ruined when Cyrus plays her by making her think Fitz played her. When she reflects on all the things she has gone through for Fitz's benefit [[spoiler: such as getting raped by Big Jerry, her son getting murdered, and losing Andrew]], she just tells Fitz "You almost had me" and leaves the White House.

* For most of ''Dog Whistle Politics,'' Olivia is hiding from the press in her apartment after revealing she's the president's mistress. Abby had to throw Olivia "under the bus" in the previous episode (as they both agreed), but there is fallout from that. Media shows speculate if Olivia dates powerful men just to date powerful men. It is ''really'' bad on the internet. As she tells Fitz over the phone...
-->'''Olivia:''' I have at least a thousand threats of rape here. Just on this one site from guys who are mad that I had the audacity to be born female. And black.

* In the Season 4 episode ''Put A Ring On It'' we find out what [[spoiler: Cyrus's fiance]] {{Backstory}} is - namely, that his parents do not approve of him. But not just of him [[spoiler: being an escort]], but of him being ''gay.'' His father tells him directly that he sent him to conversion therapy camps to "[[CureYourGays fix him]]" and that his son still being gay makes him sick, and his mother outright states that the only reason they're sitting at that table with him is because they're being paid by the head of the RNC to do so. [[GayConservative Cyrus]]'s face at hearing all of this speaks ''volumes'', as he is shocked and ''horrified'' at what he's hearing. [[spoiler: His fiance's]] reaction to it is ''heartbreaking''.

** The ending of "The Lawn Chair." Olivia takes Clarence Parker, whose determinism revealed his unarmed son was killed by a cop, to meet the president in the Oval Office. Clarence, who has been awake for about 36 hours, finally breaks down as he tells Fitz "My son's name was Brandon." Fitz hugs Clarence, as we cut to Brandon and ZippingUpTheBodyBag.

* Namida no Regret's PV. You see short scenes of Haruna, Tomomi and Rina shedding tears, then you see Mami bawling her heart out. The contrast is so huge it's possible to cry by watching Mami cry.

Added DiffLines:

* Fitz and Jake are probably the oldest friends on the show. Making Jake's speech to Fitz in "The Last Supper" heartbreaking.
-->'''Fitz''': Look, Jake...
-->'''Jake''': Captain Ballard. [[FirstNameBasis Jake is what my friends call me.]] You're not my friend, Mr. President. Friends don't put you in prison for crimes you didn't commit. They don't refuse to hear you when you're telling them the truth. They don't hit you when you can't hit back. [[TheyCallMeMisterTibbs So when you refer to me from this point forward it will be as Captain Ballard, is that understood?]]

* Perhaps the entire episode "The Lawn Chair." The cast and crew live Tweeted the episode about how they were crying while watching it for the first time on ABC.
** Clarence Parker trying to protect his son's dead body, including using the titular lawn chair to cover Brandon "in case it rains." He also talks to Olivia about Brandon. He put a college bumper sticker on his truck, even though Brandon intended to go to trade school. Also, Clarence said his goal was to "Get him to 18." Clarence is also certain he's going to end up in jail or dead by the end.
** Olivia herself during the episode. Despite her PR skills, she does not think she can fix the situation. She's also still suffering from PTSD after her kidnapping, best seen by Olivia trying to hide her trembling hand. As she tells David...
-->'''Olivia:''' I thought I was going to die. For about a week straight I thought I was a goner. I lived in complete and total fear. Imagine feeling like that every single day of your life.

* Seeing Cyrus [[spoiler: break down sobbing at the press conference announcing the capture of his husband's killer, or at least the person he thinks is his killer, to the point where he has to be hugged and escorted off by the president]] is heart-wrenching. [[spoiler: Even if he is severely morally ambiguous, we see through the episode he really did love James and is completely lost now.]]
