Barry went back in time to save his mother, and in the process created a Time Boom that changed certain events in history just slightly, but enough to cause the apocalypse.

** [[spoiler: The way his voice wavers and breaks... It's clear that this was the hardest thing he's ever had to do. And despite his ability to travel through time, he can ''never'' do it to save his mother, because he knows what would become of Earth if he did.]]


* The scene where Barry meets his now alive mother. It's heartbreaking thinking about meeting someone you you loved and was dead for a long time.

* FP!Batman in general. There's a reason why it's said that [[spoiler: a parent should never have to bury their child]].

** Which makes the similarities between Normal!Batman and FP!Batman [[spoiler: aka son and father]] all the more heartbreaking. Whoever it was who donned the cowl, both of them do not fear death, and they cannot stop [[spoiler: missing the family who was taken from them too soon]]. It hammers in the tragedy of [[spoiler: a young family separated by death]], no matter which side of the thread it's viewed from.
