These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Harsher in Hindsight: Killing off Scarecrow's love interest Libby Gant is easily the most powerful scene he's written. It's now even worse after Reilly's wife died at 37, resulting in him becoming a depressed shut-in for several months.
HSQ: Reilly has a contractual obligation to keep it high.
Tear Jerker: The scene where Scarecrow attempts to commit suicide after learning that Gant has died. His fight against Mother and her subsequent loss to him is further compunded when she finally tears up pleading…"Shane…don't." Luckily for her, he stops upon hearing that.
