** The worst part about it is when you take into account that while Peter was apprehensive about watching Charlie, he more or less ''didn't'' have a problem with her being there, considering their brotherly sister bond. He seemed just as annoyed as Charlie over Annie forcing Charlie to go with him despite Charlie making it clear she didn't want to go.

* The argument at the dinner table between Annie and Peter regarding Charlie's death and both attempting to pin the blame on one another for what happened. What makes the dinner scene so heartbreaking is the fact ''both'' know they are at fault, but they're hurt that the other doesn't want to admit they ''both'' fucked up leading to Charlie's death. Annie lets it clear she's emotionally broken and stressed from the death of her daughter and lashes out at Peter for the cause of it...and then Peter asks her quite bluntly [[ArmorPiercingQuestion why did she still force Charlie to go to the party if she made it clear she didn't want to go]].

* Charlie at the party. She doesn't want to be there, doesn't know anyone other than her brother, and doesn't want him to leave her alone. He tells her to go eat some of the cake to occupy her, not realizing nuts were added to it (even harsher when it's shown before this that her parents check with her often to make sure her snacks are nut-free - and of course Peter didn't check, because he's just a kid himself and not thinking as a parent), and she does, starting to slowly breathe harder and choking slowly on air right there on the couch in the middle of a crowded room of a dozen strangers who don't seem to be paying any attention to the 13-year-old. Even when she finally goes to Peter for help, it takes him a bit to realize what's wrong and he's clearly panicking when he does - trying desperately to help save her but getting her killed in a split second with a sudden swerve away from roadkill. It's heartwrenching to watch a little kid suffering like that without immediate help, especially if you have siblings or know someone as introverted as Charlie.

* During the seance scene where Charlie possesses Annie and begins calling out to her family. This is the first time Charlie has ever been able to speak and act as herself without Paimon's influence. Not only that but she's understandably terrified and calls out to Peter for comfort and safety, showing that, in reality, she's just a scared 13 year old girl.

** The worst part of the whole matter? ''Peter didn't have a problem having her at the party''. Heck, he didn't even have a problem with being in the car with her as she made her tongue clicking noise. He ''knew'' she was uncomfortable going and did so out of obligation by Annie. Which makes what happens afterwards so heartbreaking.
