* The [[InMediasRes interrogation scene]] at the beginning/climax of the movie, also doubles as NightmareFuel. Ethan and Julia are held hostage by Davian, and Davian slowly counts to ten before Julia is eventually executed. As Davian interrogates Ethan about the whereabouts of the [[MacGuffin Rabbit's Foot]], Davian snaps at Ethan and Ethan yells at Davian and swears to kill him. Despite Ethan's pleas, Davian reaches ten and shoots Julia in the head. [[spoiler: Thankfully, it's later revealed that it was only his translator that Davian executed, with the real Julia held hostage in a separate building, but still a pretty tense scene.]]

* After the White Widow tells Ethan about the plan to get Solomon Lane, involving the attack of a police convoy and subsequent slaughter of policemen, the scene cuts to that plan happening, with the White Widow's masked henchmen shooting down all of them. The audience then sees that one of the masked people is none other than Ethan itself, which can horrify the audience, due to Ethan basically breaking his NeverHurtAnInnocent mentality for [[TheNeedsOfTheMany the good of many]]. The slow, somber music, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H442e7CcMmA "Should You Choose to Accept..."]], doesn't help at all. It's hammered home when Ethan finally confronts a wounded officer after having shot him fatally. The officer's fearful expression is juxtaposed with Ethan's nonchalance as he aims his pistol towards his head, finally pulling the trigger. [[spoiler:Luckily, this was an ImagineSpot, but the emotional impact of what could have been still remains]].

[[ItsAllMyFault At this point, he feels that since he lived, he has been responsible for everything that has happened up to that point]], which included [[spoiler:Hunley's death]], among many things.

-->'''Luther:''' In all the years that I've known Ethan he's only been serious about two women. One was his wife.\\
'''Ilsa:''' He's married?\\
'''Luther:''' No, he was.\\
'''Ilsa:''' Was? What happened to her?\\
'''Luther:''' [[Film/MissionImpossibleIII Well, she was taken by some people who wanted to get to Ethan. It's OK. He got her back in one piece. Then he quit the game.]] They were happy for a while. [[SamaritanSyndrome But every time something bad happened in the world Ethan would think: I should have been there.]] And she would wonder: Who's watching the world while Ethan is watching me? Deep down they both knew that someday, somehow, something truly terrible was going to happen. All because they were together. So...\\
'''Ilsa:''' Where is she now?\\
'''Luther:''' She's a ghost. Good at it too. Taught her myself. Every now and then she sends up a signal to let Ethan know she's safe. And that keeps him going.\\
'''Ilsa:''' Why are you telling me this?\\
'''Luther:''' ''([[ManlyTears Tears up]])'' We're in this mess because Ethan wouldn't let me die. He's a good man. And he cares about you. More than he can admit. That's one more worry than he can handle right now. If you care about him, you should walk away.
