* Jack Zimmermann. His past, his present, his issues with his dad, his anxiety disorder, the draft, the pills, and even the above-linked incident, which he blames himself for... basically, literally everything about Jack is upsetting. Readers are praying for the day he just gets the chance to be freed from his worries, realize how much of a gem he is, and how many people love and trust him.
** Notable mention to [[http://omgcheckplease.tumblr.com/post/91527844307 1.18]]. Jack getting chewed out by the media, who put his recent accomplishments aside to talk about how much of a disappointment he was during his addict days. Despite Shitty yelling for someone to "''turn that shit off,''" the damage is done and Jack leaves the room with an utterly ''heartbreaking'' look on his face.
** And let's not forget [[http://omgcheckplease.tumblr.com/post/57707902966 1.6]], aka Jack's backstory, which gives a summarized account of Jack's messed up childhood, in the form of a fairy tale that depicts Jack as a fallen prince trying to reclaim his former glory. The storybook layout of the chapter gives it a childlike sense, which makes watching young Jack go through all that hell a thousand times more painful.

* Bitty casually bringing up the fact that the football team locked him in a closet overnight when he was in seventh grade. At the oldest, he would have been thirteen.
