* How much does Bruce trust Alfred? ''He took him to the fucking Justic League with him!'' If ''that'' doesn't say trust, especially after all these years, nothing will - especially as he did ''not'' take Dick or Jason.

to:

* Garth's awkward attempts to ask Donna out is adorable to watch. There's also the fact that Dawn is completely supportive of the relationship, scolding Donna when she continuously pushes him away. Later on, even Jillian, Donna's Amazonian mentor, tells her to reconsider returning to Themiscyra for Garth's sake, despite the difficult relationship between Amazonians and Atlanteans.
* Garth's AnguishedDeclarationOfLove at Donna, who responds with her own in turn. Sadly, it's followed by a massive tearjerking moment, as Garth is murdered by Deathstroke.



* The moment between Kory and Rachel discussing the latterís lack of control over her power

* While it's also tearjerking, Hank is the person most persistent in trying to save Jason, despite their previous enmity, saying that he knew how terrifying it is to suffer in the dark at the hands of a psychopath, hoping that your friends would save you when ultimately, they don't.






*

to:

* Conner absentmindedly shielding Lionel Luthor from being shot at by the Cadmus mooks shows that, despite his abusive upbringing, Lex still has a soft spot for his father.
* After the incident at the Luthor house, it's briefly shown that Lex calls the people on-site to confirm that his father is okay.
* Conner saving Jason from falling to his death. Despite the fact that Eve previously asked him not to be a hero, the Superman part of Conner will always convince him to be one.






* The fact that Bruce serves as Dick's good conscience shows that, even though he considered him a ToxicFriendInfluence in the previous season, it is more of the opposite.
* Kory [[ConverseWithTheUnconscious talking with the comatose Conner]], saying that him being comatose means she is not in control, and she hates not being in control, so she asks him to stay alive for her.
* Conner smiling at Kory after she successfully neutralizes his Kryptonite poisoning.






*

to:

* Though they don't mean well (at first), Jericho finally finds a circle of friends in the Titans after years of abandonment by his father. It's especially hard not to smile at his joy of playing with Hank.
* Even if they hate Deathstroke for killing Garth, both Hank and Dawn ultimately refuse to use Jericho to spy on Slade, saying that he is just an innocent kid.



*

to:

* Hank's and Dawn's duet.



*

to:

* Rachel befriending Dani, an abused girl, at a shelter. Then when Dani's father comes to forcefully collect her, Rachel uses her powers to threaten him from abusing Dani. Dani's response?
--> '''Dani:''' You're fucking awesome!
** Rachel then moves in with Dani, who is living with other stray girls. Even though the apartment they live in is dilapidated, Rachel finally finds a place she completely fits in.
* Luis, one of Dick's inmates at Kane County prison, is given a deadline to kill Dick in return for his unpaid rent. However, he ultimately refuses to do it, saying that he has his conscience. Though this causes another inmate to be killed, Dick is touched by the act and factors this to the decision to help Luis and his friend Rafi escape from the facility.
* Dick helping Luis and Rafi escape prison. Double this since he previously dismissed Rafi's faith in "a bird spirit" helping them, only to end up playing the role instead.
* Despite her animosity, Donna still reports to Dick about Rachel's disappearance. At the end of the episode, when she tries calling him again after visiting Titans Tower, his voicemail inbox is full, indicating that the other Titans, most of whom are also not on speaking terms with him, have been trying to contact him as well.



*

to:

* Bruce Wayne inviting Kory, Donna, Rachel, and Dawn to a run-down diner in Nevada to convince them to reunite the Titans. Really shows Bruce's fatherly tendencies to the younger superheroes for him to go into trouble doing it, despite being busy in heroics himself. This also means that he still looks after Dick, his former sidekick and surrogate son.
* The episode reveals that Jason and Rose have undergone RelationshipUpgrade and are living together in a mansion outside Gotham. Jason later takes Rose to see the place where he grew up before Bruce took him.
* Rose terminating her cooperation with Slade, having grown to genuinely care for Jason and the rest of the Titans.



*

to:

* Jericho is still alive, albeit in Slade's body. He still considers himself a friend of the Titans, and Dick in particular, and is battling his father to be able to break free.
* Dick goes to the tailor shop where got his Robin suit to create a suit for his Nightwing persona. When he talks to the shopkeeper, he finds out that Bruce had anticipated this and helped with the design.



*

to:

* Dick's reunion with Jericho, especially when the latter uses sign language to communicate again, in spite of possessing Rose.
* Dick manages to bring Conner's conscience out from Cadmus' brainwashing. They end up in the Smallville farm, in its full shining glory.
* Dawn bonding with a little girl after the end of the fight with Conner, giving her a doll.
* Bruce comforting Dick after Donna's funeral. Later, he attends the new Titans' dinner before their first mission, commending Dick for finally bringing the Titans back together.
* Even though he still feels betrayed by Dick and the others, Jason is seen sending off Donna's coffin before it is taken to Themiscyra, though he quickly leaves afterward.
* Hank convincing Dawn to work together again, not as Hank and Dawn, but as Hawk and Dove.

Added DiffLines:

** And not only his fanboyism, but Jason tries to present himself an "inflated" version of himself to Dick just to impress him.
