** The transition from Scully's laying with Emily to Emily's funeral was especially hard on this troper. The imagery of Scully laying with her dying daughter while the stained glass of the chapel portrays the Virgin Mary with her (living) son and Bill's newborn daughter in his wife's arms probably helped absolutely nothing.

** [[spoiler: Margaret's last words being to her missing grandson William]], and Scully's reaction:
--->'''Scully''': (crying) Her last words to us were about [[spoiler:our child, her grandchild, that we ''gave away''.]] Why did she say that? Why did she have to say that?

----* Large portions of "Home Again", which deals with the [[spoiler: heart attack and death of Margaret Scully]].
** When Scully gets to the hospital, a nurse tells her that her mother was asking for "Charlie" (the youngest Scully child and who had apparently become estranged from Margaret). Not Bill (her favorite) and not Dana, not any of her grandchildren, but Charlie.

[[AC:2016 Miniseries]]
* In the first episode, "My Struggle", it's revealed that [[spoiler:Mulder and Scully have broken up and become estranged, and both are now more or less completely alone.]]
* In "Founder's Mutation", Mulder and Scully discuss [[spoiler:William]], with Scully admitting that [[spoiler:she hates herself for giving him up,]] while Mulder says that he's "put that behind [him]". Except it turns out Mulder ''hasn't'' put it behind him--[[spoiler:both he and Scully still keep photos of William with them and fantasize about raising him.]]
** Said [[spoiler:fantasies]] are themselves a mix of tearjerker and NightmareFuel. [[spoiler:They start out happy and benign, only to get darker as Scully's and Mulder's personal fears take over. Scully's fantasy ends with William undergoing an alien mutation like Emily did, while Mulder's ends with William being abducted in exactly the manner Samantha was.]]

* The ending to "The Unusual Suspects." After the Lone Gunmen solidify into a trio, and go after the attempt to poison unsuspecting asthma patients with a mind control drug, things go to hell in short order - the warehouse is shot up, the drugs vanish, the trio are arrested, and the last they see of Suzanne Modeski is her being shoved into a car and kidnapped in broad daylight after she tells them ''"no matter how paranoid you are, you are't paranoid enough."'' It's especially harsh on Byers, who saw every part of his worldview wrecked in the process.
