Added DiffLines:

* Early in the movie, Raven and Hank are talking about leaving and they mention they are the last of the first class. It takes a moment to realize that this is because their [[Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast other friends and teammates]] [[Film/XmenApocalypse were all killed off]] before the events of this movie.


** Mystique's funeral afterwards. Storm isn't even using an umbrella, and Hank is standing in the rain as Beast, as it was what Mystique would have wanted. And Charles delivers this hopeful, yet depressing eulogy:

* Jean learning her father deliberately gave her up to Charles, as he blames her for what happened to his wife. The worst thing coming from this is the HopeSpot: Jean finally arrives at her house, and this is one of the few times she is genuinely happy after absorbing the Phoenix Force. Her father welcomes her, and she asks for tea. As he goes to make it, Jean wistfully looks around her home... and then she notices that there are no photos of her. After that, everything goes to hell.



** Her funeral afterwards. Storm isn't even using an umbrella, and Hank is standing in the rain as Beast, as it was what Mystique would have wanted. And Charles delivers this hopeful, yet depressing eulogy:

* Jean learning ** In the aftermath, Charles and Hank end up arguing about what the former did to Jean.
--->'''Charles:''' [[CallBack Do you know, this is where I first met Raven.]] [[Film/XMenFirstClass She was just this little girl, and sheíd broken in, looking for food. I said she could stay, and that sheíd never have to go hungry again. And then I think I promised
her father deliberately gave her up a better life.]]\\
''''Hank:''' And then you took it from her.\\
'''Charles:''' I beg your pardon?\\
'''Hank:''' You heard me.\\
'''Charles:''' Hank...\\
'''Hank:''' This is your fault, Charles. Itís your fault that sheís dead.\\
'''Charles:''' Come on, thatís not fair.\\
'''Hank:''' Fair? Oh, donít talk about fair. [[AwfulTruth You messed with the mind of an eight year-old girl.]]\\
'''Charles:''' Jean?\\
'''Hank:''' [[NiceJobBreakingItHero You pushed out all that pain and anger. Where do you think it's going
to go?]]\\
'''Charles:''' I did that to help her. What I do, I do to help all of you.\\
'''Hank:''' Oh, please. Come on, please! You still canít see what you did wrong?\\
'''Charles:''' Letís just...\\
''[[[DrowningMySorrows Charles attempts to reach his whisky bottle]], but Hank angrily bats it away.]''\\
'''Hank:''' [[WhatTheHellHero NO, YOU NEED TO FACE THIS, CHARLES! YOU NEED TO FACE IT! COME ON, ADMIT IT TO ME RIGHT NOW! COME ON! ADMIT IT!
Charles, as he blames her for just admit you were wrong, please.]]\\
''[{{Beat}}]''\\
'''Hank:''' You still canít.\\
'''Charles:''' I really hope you feel better, Hank. I hope that raving on me five minutes after I put my foster sister in the grave, is making you feel a damn...\\
'''Hank:''' This isn't about me. [[MyGreatestFailure You know what, I know
what happened I did wrong, okay, Charles? [[ILetGwenStacyDie She was going to his wife.leave. Raven was going to leave, and I talked her out of it.]] She saw what the rest of us didnít.]]\\
'''Charles:''' And what was that?\\
'''Hank:''' [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech This whole time, weíve been trying to protect these kids from the world, when really, we shouldíve been protecting them from you.]]
** Jean's reaction after she left. She is slumped against a wall in the rain, [[TheseHandsHaveKilled tearfully attempting to get blood off from her cardigan]], and repeatedly asking why she lost control of her powers at the worst time.

Added DiffLines:

** The last person Mystique sees is Hank, the one person who she almost started a romantic relationship with, and encouraged to remain [[Film/XMenFirstClass "mutant and proud"]]. She cannot even say much, only mouthing the words "I love you". After she says this, Hank is in utter denial over her death, begging that she [[PleaseWakeUp wake up]].
** Just look at Charles' face after this moment. The poor soul looks like he is about to cry, as he had telepathically froze everyone else but Mystique and Jean, [[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath hoping the former would talk down the latter]]. And that failed in the most brutal way.
** Her funeral afterwards. Storm isn't even using an umbrella, and Hank is standing in the rain as Beast, as it was what Mystique would have wanted. And Charles delivers this hopeful, yet depressing eulogy:
--->''"We are all at war, at war with ourselves. And Raven had been waging that war for most of her life. I hope now sheís found peace. Raven died doing what she did best. Helping a friend. A friend in need. She is not gone. She lives on through me, through us, and through the spirit of the X-Men."''
