Heartwarming / The Departed

  • Madolyn and Costigan's relationship is genuinely sweet despite the circumstances. You can tell that if things were different, and Costigan was not in his situation that he would have liked to have been with her, and Madolyn for her part greatly misses Billy at the end, while, presumably pregnant with his child.
  • He's an unrepentant asshole, but Dignam's devotion to the police force and the Captain is quite heartwarming. which makes it all the more awesome that he is the one that shoots that filthy rat Sullivan right in the face.
