Added DiffLines:

* Davian's brutal interrogation of the [[MacGuffin Rabbit's Foot]] at the [[InMediasRes start/climax]] of the movie, where Davian slowly counts to ten before killing Julia. At one point during the interrogation, Ethan ''snaps'' at Davian and Davian yells back at him, and despite Ethan's pleas, Davian eventually reaches ten and executes Julia. [[spoiler: It's later revealed, however, that the Julia Davian executed was actually his translator, with the real Julia held hostage in a separate building.]]


* The whole plot is made of Nightmare Fuel. [[spoiler: You just watched your whole team die. A list of half the world's secret agents is out in the open. And you just realized your Agency thinks you've done it. You get away, but where do you go? Everyone you can trust is either dead or thinks your a traitor. You're on your own.]] What do you?

Added DiffLines:

* The death of [[spoiler: Jack.]] While on the elevator, it suddenly starts to move, and in a blink-and-you-miss-it shot, he gets ''impaled through the eye by the ceiling''. Easily one of the most brutal deaths in the entire series, similar to [[spoiler: August Walker]] in ''Fallout''.


* At the start of the movie, Ethan gets his usual briefing... but then it’s revealed to be the Syndicate giving the briefing, which tells Ethan to “face his fate, and should they pursue them, he’ll be caught, and resist them, he’ll be killed, and his precious secretary will disavow any knowledge of his actions.” Then sleeping gas is released, and the last thing Ethan sees before passing out is Solomon Lane executing the female IMF agent before his eyes.

* Krieger pushing the helicopter blades toward Ethan's neck. It's one of the few times in the whole series where Ethan is ''absolutely helpless'' with nothing he can do to stop a gruesome death, and he only survives from the luck of the helicopter's tail hitting the Channel Tunnel roof.

Added DiffLines:

* Everything about Owen Davian. He's an utterly sadistic monster with zero empathy or compassion who will slaughter everyone you love and for whom murder is as natural as breathing. Creator/PhilipSeymourHoffman resists hamming it up and turns him into a cold-hearted bastard with little emotion which sells just how utterly removed from humanity Davian is, making him every bit as nightmarish as someone like John Doe in ''Film/Se7en''.
