* In the finale, Ken was forced to turn against his closest ally in the game because he was too much of a threat. When confronted with it at the Final Tribal Council, he broke down clearly regretting decision saying he had to do it because his daughter means everything to him.

* Adam's mother passed away shortly after filming wrapped on Millennials vs. Gen-X. Fortunately, he was able to subvert NeverGotToSayGoodbye, as he made it home an hour before her time came. He even got to tell her that he knew he won.

* Jay and Adam finally put their antagonism to rest in the most heartbreaking way possible. After Jay and Adam argue with Jay telling him he'd take Adam to the end if Adam wouldn't turn on him, Adam remorsefully declines before tearfully telling Jay about his dying mother, which leads to Jay breaking down in tears and admitting he's afraid one day his own mother will die because of her brain aneurysms. It's a very powerful and tragic scene of two boys who had been on opposites sides bonding together through the pain of their ill loved ones, and afterwards Jay admits he can't hate Adam anymore after hearing what he was going through.

* The loved ones visit is this and [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]]. From everyone crying and smiling, to everyone talking about how much their loved one meant to them. David crying and saying how he wished he was as brave as his dad, Hannah comforting her mom, Bret and Zeke breaking down, and Adam meeting his brother. Especially Adam meeting his brother, since he's so, ''so'' desperate to hear how his mom is doing and is tempted to use the advantage... but he doesn't. Because he can't take that away from everyone. And through the challenge, he struggles so desperately and apologizes to his brother as he fails. And it would have been so horrible, if not for Jay showing kindness and taking Adam on the reward.

*** This is especially brutal since Bret admitted to Zeke he stayed closeted because he was fearful that his tribe wouldn't accept him as gay, a very valid fear considering they were from the generation before and dripping with machismo. However, he targeted the least one for having a condition he was unable to help (and had been shown struggling with throughout the full two-hour episode)- and while the two are very hard to compare in severity otherwise, it was still unkind of Bret, who appeared to be supportive of him in the earlier parts of the episode. Then again, in the first episode, Bret mocked David in confessional for, of all things, "having less testosterone than the women"- which indicates that he is not macho like Bret felt the rest of the tribe was. Not only is it very harsh, it also makes one wonder about what Bret has been through and how deep his mask is when dealing with his generation.



* Jessica's exit from the game in ''Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen-X'', is heartbreaking. She really didn't want to draw rocks but she went to do so believing that it is her only shot at winning the game. As she ended up pulling the black rock, she was crying on her way out of tribal council.

Not only that, but many of the cast members were crying at her sudden elimination- even Jay, who had a history of being brutal and hardcore and had no allies.

** Adam getting a letter from his mother in episode 10. He burst into tears even before he read it, and was smiling as he read that his mother had been well enough to go see a ballet.


Added DiffLines:

** This scene sort of happens again in episode 10, but instead it was David and Hannah who were being verbally abused by Zeke and Bret, who mocked them for their anxiety and neuroticism. Like above, it hit home for anyone who struggled with anxiety and have been made of for it. Some people online have grimly noticed the irony in the fact that it was two LBGT+ people degrading other people for something they couldn't help.

* While somewhat understated due to her over-the-top nature, it is made clear that Michaela is genuinely hurt by Jay's betrayal. The look she gives Jay as her torch is snuffed screams that she is trying to decide between being enraged and heartbroken.
** Even before that, the look she gave him after her BigWhat and his admittance. She looks as though she's tearing up.
* Adam trying to defend himself from Taylor and Jay's accusations and insults was eerily reminiscent of watching a kid get bullied. Every time he tried to speak up, they would cut him off or laugh at him. And when he started getting upset, they would mock him by asking him "why are you getting so defensive?". For anyone who was bullied growing up, this scene was uncomfortable and emotional. You definitely felt Adam's frustration and hurt.
