Added DiffLines:

** Later, her speech to her mother about how she doesn't want money or a house or anything like that: she just wants her mum.
* Emily's self-destructive behaviour and subsequent breakdown in Katie's series 4 episode, culminating in her crying on her bed with Katie.


** Rich realising that the phone he's been using to talk to Grace on is broken, so the call obviously couldn't have happened, and was all in his head.

* The final scene of the main series, in which Franky finally [[spoiler:meets her birth mother]], Alex [[spoiler:leaves for Thailand with the implication that he'll never see Liv again and sends her a text that just says, "love you forever,"]], Mini [[spoiler:giving birth to her and Alo's child]], and a content Rich hearing the baby's birth and looking to the sky to say one final message to Grace (and to the viewer):
-->"Bye."

Added DiffLines:

* “Chelle. I’m so lonely.”


* Nicks complete breakdown and subsequent wrecking of his house. It displays really well just how difficult it is mentally to be the 'golden child'.
* [[spoiler: Graces death]] especially important as unlike the other two generations, it happens at the beginning of Gen3's second season, so we really get to see the fall out.

Added DiffLines:

* Cassie's speech about enjoying power during her exam. She's clearly asking her teacher for understanding, especially when she mentions her self harm. What makes it more tragic is that she actually gets some sympathy from her teacher and aces the test... [[spoiler: and it's her last happy moment before Chris dies.]]


** His description of his emotions towards [[spoiler: killing Foster]]. He describes it as feeling like nothing. This sounds worryingly like he's lost any sense of remorse, until he goes on to say he has to live with that nothing inside of him, and you realise that what he's actually dealing with is pretty obviously clinical depression. Feelings of numbness, a withdrawn nature, and self harm are often major red flags. If you compound those onto his severe low self worth, his best friend having been murdered, and the mental strain of being on the run for 3 years, its a wonder Cook hasn't completely cracked yet. Its hard not to feel sad about his evolution from a carefree trouble maker to a depressed and haunted man.

* Katie finding out that she is going through [[spoiler: premature menopause]] in her series 4 episode.


* Tony crying when [[spoilers: Sid leaves for New York to find Cassie.]] What really makes this scene is when Tony stands at the doors of the airport [[spoilers: after Sid goes through them a second time to catch his flight,]] as if he's waiting for Sid to come back a second time, but it finally clicks in for Tony when he never does. Then the tears start to fall.

* Cooks final speech on the last episode. The main theme of it is about how people tend to let grief and the past consume them, a vitally important theme for a show where [[spoiler: someone dies every generation]]. But he then reminds us that in the same vein, we sometimes forget to appreciate our lives, and that to be happy, we need to start letting ourselves live. Basically its telling the viewers thats its ok to move on. All this happens as Cook walks of over a snowy field, away from get another murder scene, into an uncertain future. The Skins logo fades in over the top, and it finally brings the series to a close, and sends the audience on its way, as the show has now taught us all it can.

** Cooks entire mental state through his two episodes in
series 7. He's quiet, withdrawn, serious, and most worryingly exhibits some self harming tendencies. He's definitely not the loudmouthed jokester anymore.
