- As Wallace is executed, he sees Murron in the crowd, and he smiles as the axe comes down on him.
- Robert the Bruce's realisation that he's unwittingly led Wallace into a trap.
- Campbell's death after Falkirk. Made all the worse with his final words to Hamish, and his son's weeping over him when he finally passes. Manly Tears can and will ensue...
"I'm dyin', boy.""No... You're going to live.""I've lived long enough to live free. Proud... to see you become the man you are. I'm a happy man..."
- Overlapping with heartwarming, Hamish and Stephen in the crowd at Wallace's execution. They know their friend is going to die, they know he will be put through hell first and that a spectacle will be made of his torture, they know they can do nothing to save him, yet they still go, simply so that Wallace doesn't die alone, even if he doesn't know they're there.
- The primae noctis scene. Historically accurate it isn't, but the moment where the bride goes to her husband and mouths "I'll be okay; everything will be okay"? Still pretty heartwrenching to watch.
- After Murron gets captured, she desperately looks around, hoping that Wallace will storm in and stop the English soldiers. He doesn't, and so she's executed.
