* Harvey [[DrowningMySorrows drowning his sorrows]] after [[DirtyCoward skipping the ceremony at the bar]]. He can't face the cops he led into Pyg's trap and the [[HeelRealization guilt is clearly eating him alive]]. Made worse when Jim realizes he needs to take Harvey's job as Captain, since Harvey simply... can't do it.

** Oswald really can't catch a break this episode. His confrontation with Ed is just so...melancholy, in that while [[IronicEcho Oswald once visited Ed in Arkham to comfort him, Ed is visiting him purely to gloat]], and it's a pretty harrowing reminder of how far apart these two people are now, who used to care about each other so much. And as tough as he acts, some of Ed's words obviously hurt Penguin deeply; when Ed tells him he's alone and has no friends, Penguin looks ready to cry.

* The utter psychological ''torment'' poor Jonathan Crane undergoes at the hands of his kidnappers, especially considering the fact that he's only a bit older than Bruce. Is it any wonder the poor kid snaps?

* Penguin and Riddler's confrontation after Ed is unfrozen. Ed's confusion and fear from his brain damage can be really hard to watch, and it's obvious both of them somewhat regret the way things went between them, but it's too late to change anything. It's heartbreaking that these two people who used to care about each other so much have reached a point where they have nothing left to say to each other and simply go their separate ways.

* Bruce's obvious heartbreak at [[spoiler: Jeremiah's betrayal]], followed by his reaction to Gordon's supposed death.
* The conversation between Jim and Lee in the interrogation room. It's painfully obvious that they still care about each other, but his morals won't let him let her go, and she's too jaded to back down. It ends with her desperately insisting that Jim join her in the Narrows.

* Oswald's humiliation at Jerome's hands can be ''really'' hard to watch if you've ever experienced bullying. Practically every prisoner and guard is under Jerome's thumb, and there's nothing Oswald can do to escape or fight back without putting Martin in danger. The shot of him just crying brokenly alone in his cell is nothing short of gut-wrenching.
** It's heavily implied that Oswald was experiencing none-too-pleasant flashbacks to being bullied as a child, especially when he's forced to stand on a table in a humiliating costume in front of everybody while they all taunt and jeer at him.

* Despite never really trusting her, it's clear that Penguin ''wanted'' to give Sofia a chance, especially with how cripplingly lonely he seems and how desperate he is to have just one real friend. When Martin confirms that Sofia has been working with Gordon against him, Oswald is left crying in his car, heartbroken that his suspicions were correct.

* Jerome did ''not'' have a happy childhood. One of his recollections involves his uncle sticking his hand in a boiling pot of chicken broth for [[FelonyMisdemeanor ''stealing a cookie''.]]
** Particularly noteworthy was his honest astonishment that Bruce would try to save him from his abusive uncle, which leads to a rare {{pet the dog}} moment where he tries to save Bruce. "No one ever saved me. Which begs the question, what's wrong with you?" There's also his comment to his (now dead) uncle that he "really brought back the utter helplessness of childhood."

Added DiffLines:

* Blink and you'll miss it, but Jeremiah actually seems a bit upset when he sees Jerome's body. Despite how terrified he was of Jerome, they were still twins, and he probably didn't want his brother to die.
