Added DiffLines:

* When Bob first arrives in Mainframe, its Twin City was just destroyed. There's nothing he can do to repair that sort of damage, save preventing things from getting any worse. Dot mistakes his condolences as blame for the accident, and brakes down in tears on him, all while Bob is pleading just to try and help her.


* Enzo looking around for [=AndrAIa=] in "Between A Raccoon And A Hard Place", after it looked like the game had taken her with it. It's a brief moment, but the look of despair on his face and the tone of his voice as he calls "[=AndrAIa=]!" really help convey the desperation the young sprite was feeling.

* To save Mainframe, save the Net, from Daemon's infection Enzo has to shatter Matrix's first time feeling whole and content. Needs of the many and all, but considering the self-loathing that Matrix carries with him (as we saw in season three's "Number 7")... The fact that it takes Matrix going to the dark place that has defined his life to save the day...

Added DiffLines:

** At the end of ''End Prog'' there's an musical preformed by binomes recapping the events of season 3. During the part where Enzo loses the game and is forced to start game hoping growing into a 'grim aggressor man' there's a cut to Matrix in the audience looking regretful and sad. One can tell that Matrix isn't happy with the person that he became.

* Frisket drained of energy by Gigabyte. Sure, Bob immediately reassures Enzo and [=AndrAIa=] that he'll be fine, but it doesn't make the horror of seeing their faithful companion downed in an effort to protect them.

Added DiffLines:

** The tracking shot of Mainframe in ruins, with Matrix, [=AndrAIa,=] Bob, Captain Capacitor, and Frisket just staring in horror. Worse when watching immediately after the preceding episode's triumphant ending of our heroes finally managing to make it home.

-->''"Uh, hi..... sis."''
* One thing about Matrix and Dot's reunion that always seems saddening is the short look of confusion on Dot's face. Either she doesn't recognize her brother at first, or she's in denial that it's really him and it HURTS to see.
** It doesn't help that Matrix grew up at an accelerated speed so he's not supposed to be anywhere near as old - something that almost certainly hit Dot.
