From his point of view during the entire sequence of events ingame he has been dedicated to them beyond any other, given them his all despite escalating damage to himself and saved their lives multiple times. The only time he had ever asked them for anything was to save and protect Gortys but he instead witnesses them killing her.]]

* Jack's final moments are appropriately pathetic. Going from undignified begging to insane raving, Jack comes across as desperate, sad and very alone, trapped in his own broken mind. And adding to that is Rhys. The proud Hyperion employee and Jack fanboy, watching his idol reveal his true nature as a broken loser among the burning wreckage of Helios.

* Reject Hyperion ending is just as much a TearJerker as it is NightmareFuel. Handsome Jack genuinely opens up, offering to give Rhys everything he wanted - and ''fully'' intends to follow through with it (at least for now) - and Rhys brashly throws the offer back in his face. Its one more betrayal in a lifetime of allies-turning-traitors for Jack. As terrifying as he is in the reject ending, its a little sad too. He ''really'' hoped Rhys would be different.
