The end of Jadis' first solo story. She has a shrine in her wardrobe to the superhero she thinks is her mother. She sticks up a newspaper clipping of her saving a bunch of people, and asks whether her mother might one day tell her that she's proud of her.
In "Ayla and the Grinch", Ayla disguises himself as a beauty pageant contestant to hide from the MCO. He then ends up fighting a demon. Two of the other contestants face down the demon armed with nothing more than symbols of their faith (and it actually works). After the fight, Ayla goes to see them in the pageant, and while neither of them gets a place, he makes some calls and gets them scholarships and free long-term sessions with psychiatrists.
The end of Silent Nacht: Nacht has discovered that the Bell Witch was not her mother, and actually abducted her from another woman. Nacht has no idea who the woman is (she only has a photo), but she comments that at last, she has a mother she can love with all her heart, even without knowing her.
