* When Tommy hears a gunshot coming from Arthur's, he briefly drops his cool and ''runs'' to his brother's house.



* The look on Tommy's face when he sees May again - things have gotten very grim for him, but seeing her is like a ray of sunlight.



* In the last episode of season 4, Lizzie [[spoiler: holding her baby]] and smiling happily is so nice to see, considering she has [[ButtMonkey not had an easy]] [[TheWoobie time of it in the show leading up to that point.]]

* In the last episode of season 4, Lizzie [[spoiler: holding her baby]] and smiling happily is so nice to see, considering she has [[ButtMonkey not had an easy]] [[TheWoobie time of it in the show leading up to that point.]]]]
** Also, Tommy [[spoiler: holding his daughter for the very first time.]] He looks so happy, even if it seemed he was initially ambivalent.

Added DiffLines:

* Tommy is not amused when Aberama Gold tries to buy Charlie's yard and tells him they'll toss a coin for it - but if Aberama loses the bet, Tommy gets to fuck his daughter. Aberama declines.
** Everyone having a belated Christmas together and toasting in John's memory.

Added DiffLines:

* Tommy's maid, Frances, being so concerned about Tommy during his "vacation," during which time he suffers flashbacks and reveals how much of a ShellShockedVeteran he is, that she calls Polly. And Polly comes to his aid. Doubly heartwarming if you consider where Tommy and Polly stood at the start of the season.

Added DiffLines:

** Arthur's speech, stumbling and awkward as it is, makes it clear how much Tommy means to him.

Added DiffLines:

* Polly reminiscing about the days of her youth at the campfire with Aberama Gold. And then seducing him - without any ulterior motive, just because she finds him attractive and feels free to do whatever she pleases. It's very human.


* Aside from some signature teasing and sarcasm, the Shelby ladies (Polly, Ada, and Linda) congratulating Lizzie on [[spoiler: her pregnancy and joining the family]] is a sweet gesture.

--->'''Tommy''': I know you haven't been happy for a while, and I know why… I've spoken to our contacts in the police, and they have contacts in the council. Contacts with the people who keep the parish records. Records of adoptions, and of confidential forced removals. Now, with your permission, I'd like to grease a few palms and take a look at the records they never showed you. Pol, I'm going to find your son and daughter, and I'm going to bring them home. That's what this house is for--so that you can bring your family home where they belong. We're moving up, Pol.
