** Hiddleston describes the direction he was given for the look on that face in that scene (in the film) as everything else peeled away and Nicholls being like a boy of nine again. It's not even fear, it's wide-eyed horror as he realizes exactly what's happened.

* Major Stewart surrounded by German soldiers and forced to surrender after most of his troops have been slaughtered by machine guns. He drops his saber to the ground, with the harsh knowledge that not only is his cavalry dead the cavalry tradition itself has been rendered completely obsolete by modern technology.

* The moment when Joey is set to be shot with a blind Albert only a short distance away. Given the [[{{Determinator}} two]] [[WarIsHell themes]] of the play, you genuinely don't know if Joey's going to die.[[spoiler:He lives.]]

* Captain Nicholls' death was made quite heartbreaking with slow motion and the noise of the war being deadened.... not to mention his expression of knowing that he was going to die and being terrified of the certainty of it.

* The scene in the play that takes place at Christmas, when Alfred is told that Nichols has died in the war. After his mother loses her temper and yells at him for only caring about Joey while half of the men in the village died with him, she apologizes and goes in to get something. Alfred then spontaneously decides to go over the Channel and look for Joey. His mother comes out and realizes what he's done, then runs back inside screaming for her husband.

** Worse still in the scene that precedes it. Nicholls has just been killed, and many other casualties - both soldiers and horses - are strewn about the stage. When the scene shifts back to Devon, every single actor and puppet laying on the floor just... stays there.

** Friedrich, also convincing himself, that he could bring home Joey and Tophorn to his little girl when the war is through. He devastated to find Tophorn nearing death.

* In the play, Albert looks upon all the corpses of horses on the field and comes to accept that Joey is dead (or so he thinks). He then spies a dying horse, weak from carting weapons, and he goes down to comfort it in its final moments. He lays down the portrait of Joey on the horse's corpse as a tribute.
