* [[spoiler: Sam dying after she saves Juliet. To call it a BittersweetEnding is putting it mildly. You realize everything Sam loses: her family, her friends, her future, marriage, college, kids, and everything she had to do or say with her life are gone. After spending 400 some odd pages with her. To say nothing of what her LoveInterest, family, and best friends are implied to deal with grief wise.]]
* [[spoiler: Juliet taking the blame for Lindsay, which resulted in her ''best friend'' ostracising her just because she was scared Juliet would blow her cover. You see just how much of a BrokenBird she is when she begins [[DissonantSerenity calmly listing all the horrible things that have happened to her since then to Sam.]] ]]
