YMMV: Torchwood: The Lost Files
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Ianto's Heroic Sacrifice in The House of the Dead, which permanently seals the rift.
  • Crowning Moment Of Heart Warming: In The House of the Dead, As he's about to pull a Heroic Sacrifice;
    Jack: Ianto Jones, I love you.
    • Plus the fact that of all the people he lost, Jack saw Ianto at the House of the Dead.
  • Pandering to the Base: "The House of the Dead" is pretty much the writers humoring the shippers who lost their shit because Jack didn't explicitly say that he loved Ianto when he died.
  • Tear Jerker: " I never thought these would be my last words to you Jack... but just go away."
    • Also: "I never said it properly before!" "Does it need saying?"
    • "Goodbye, Ianto."
