Added DiffLines:

** The implication that Mama Coco has been ''wanting'' to talk about her father for years but her family never spoke of him. Now, ''at last'', here is her beloved great-grandson ''wanting to talk of her beloved father...'' and she springs back to life. Is it Dementia... or forgetting because ''there's no-one else there to discuss the memories with?''


Added DiffLines:

*** The implication that Mama Coco has ''literally just died'' given her father's reaction to seeing her. She died immediately before the ceremony to remember the dead and can now come back to see them, family whole, at ''last.''


*** Moreover, it appears to be in Coco’s former bedroom, since it seems to be the room Miguel ran to.

Added DiffLines:

*** It also indicates that Imelda has forgiven Héctor.

Added DiffLines:

*** The point where she's descending the staircase and looks right at him and ''smiles'', beginning to get into the performance is this. She's remembering all the times he would play for her in life and recalling the enjoyment she got from such a simple little act, something she's not been able to enjoy for decades owing to her own decision to forsake music to look after her family.


** Young Coco being so happy when her mother gifts her with a new pair of shoes she crafted herself. Even though her mother is a strict woman, Coco loved her enough to express appreciation for the shoes at such a young age.

* When Miguel sings "The World is my Familia" to get Ernesto's attention, it's his way of sending a secret message to him (how both use music as "thier" language because both are "[[LikeFatherLikeSon familia]]"). There's such hope in his face at finally meeting his hero face to face.

Added DiffLines:

*** Another potential, just as sweet interpretation of these lyrics, the singer knows just how Juanita looks to other people, and how physically ugly she is. But even in spite of it all, he declares how ugly ''he'' is at the end, and wishes for her to give him a chance. For all the way she is described in the song, it's ''him'' that feels unworthy of her loving him like he does her.


* Imagine what the dead Riveras must have experienced after Miguel returned to the land of the living. They watched Hector grow weaker and weaker, to the point where he was probably already unconscious and even becoming transparent. They might have gotten ready to mourn, and particularly Imelda may have had her heartstrings tugged. Then suddenly Hector started to recover, until he was back to full health. And they all knew that Miguel had caused it.

Added DiffLines:

*** Of course. They saw Miguel every year on the day of the dead, even though he never saw them.


** Miguel slowing down his playing so Mama Coco can catch up.



*** Fridge-Heartwarming: Miguel may have preformed at the Land of the Dead's talent show, but who is his first truly-living audience? ''His own family''.

** Plus she gives him another one that lets him get into Ernesto’s party.


* Miguel's reunion with his (dead) relatives. In contrast to finally meeting his ([[BrokenPedestal former]]) hero Ernesto, this is where Miguel is [[BidDamnReunion happy]] to be surrounded by the familiar faces of his family (even if they're [[DemBones skeletons]]). It's a warm moment that illustrates how he's come to appreciate being with the people who love and care for him.

*** What makes this all sweet is that this is the highest form of the trope WartsAndAll: yes Héctor left his family, yes he failed to return home and yes he's been reduced to a nobody who never amounted to anything, but what counts is that he's Miguel's family and was a decent father in life.

*** Héctor getting his very own museum. The heart-warming part comes in when you see ''where'' said-museum is situated: inside the Rivera family's shoe shop, so people will know how family-orientated he was in life.
** Héctor avoiding a [[DeaderThanDead final death]] and finally having his picture on the ofrenda, allowing him to cross over the bridge with his family.
*** The relief on his face when, for once, he doesn't sink when he steps upon the bridge.
