Added DiffLines:

* Carol's [[HeroicBSOD breakdown]] in the yard outside the Rambeau home, after she hears the black box recording and realizes that not only have the past six years of her life been a lie, but she's a ''human'' who was stolen from her family and turned into a weapon. Her desperate attempts to debate Talos, to have ''something'' real to hold on to, just get more broken and angry, until she finally spits out that ''she doesn't even know who she is anymore''. Seeing Carol, who has been cocky and confident and joking throughout the film until this point, crack under the weight of what she's done and what's happened to her truly drives home what the Kree put her through.
** Thankfully, Maria steps up to the plate to talk her down, firmly reminding her that she is ''Carol Danvers''. Carol subsequently breaking into tears and hugging Maria is a tear jerker of a whole different kind.

Added DiffLines:

* Right before Mar-Vell's death, she begs Carol to leave, so that Carol won't end up on Mar-Vell's list of regrets now that she's been dragged into the Kree situation. It's clear that Mar-Vell cared a lot about Carol (and Maria), so knowing that one of her last wishes ended up failing is heartbreaking. To make it worse, it fails primarily because Carol, noble to the end, tries to complete Mar-Vell's ''other'' last wish by doing a HeroicSacrifice to destroy the engine- and, as a result, she's turned into a prisoner of war and brainwashed into helping commit genocide.


* In a sense, Carol's whole storyline. She loses her memories of her old life on Earth, and never gains them back. By the end of the movie, Carol is essentially a woman with no home or family of her own, and no idea of her place in the universe.

* In a sense, Carol's whole storyline.storyline is as sad as Star-Lord's/Peter Quill's. She loses her memories of her old life on Earth, and never gains them back. By the end of the movie, Carol is essentially a woman with no home or family of her own, and no idea of her place in the universe.


Added DiffLines:

* There's also Carol's encounter with the Supreme Intelligence again. Now that she remembers who Dr. Lawson/Mar-Vell was and what she did, seeing the genocidal, war-mongering Supreme Intelligence wear the face of someone so noble who wanted to end all unjust wars in front of Carol now feels like an insult both to her and the deceased scientist.


* A TearJerker that can only be inferred by [[ForegoneConclusion the way the plot is set to go in the future]]. Carol was back for all of a few days after being missing and presumed dead for six years, and now Maria and Monica have to say goodbye to her again. And this time, she doesn't come back home for the better part of a quarter-century. And when she finally does, [[Film/AvengersInfinityWar there's a chance that one or both may have been victims of the Snap.]]

** Related to this, while she almost certainly knows the Snap happened, there's absolutely no way she could know Fury specifically was a victim. The first thing she says upon encountering the surviving Avengers, who are investigating what is to them a weird pager displaying a bizarre symbol that only meant anything to Fury, is "Where's Fury?", and the answer is probably going to be devastating.

Added DiffLines:

* Upon seeing the Skrull refugees, and learning the truth that the "war" between the Kree and the Skrulls is just a one-sided genocide, Carol briefly and visibly [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone breaks down in guilt]].


* Two words, just before the film opens: "Thanks Stan."

Added DiffLines:

** Sad still is the implication that, beyond Maria and Monica, she really ''didn't'' have anything to come back to. Her family life was bad, the military men around her weren't friendly, and her mentor was dead. Even before this she had little holding her around.

Added DiffLines:

** Additionally, because the crash Carol 'died' in was classified, Maria could never talk about it to anyone.

Added DiffLines:

* Likewise when Carol looks at Creator/StanLee to see if he's a skrull, unlike everyone else, she gives him a warm smile.


* Creator/KevinSmith reported that he had ManlyTears at Stan Lee's cameo, referring back to Smith's time working with him on ''Film/{{Mallrats}}''.
