  • Piggot pointing out exactly why she kept Sophia to Legend. No matter how much you dislike her or Sophia, she wasn't wrong and he can't say otherwise.
    Piggot: “I request reinforcement after reinforcement. More troops, more supplies, more funding, more Parahumans, more anything that can be spared. Would you like to know what happened, Legend? Nothing. I get nothing! I get it. The Bay is a shit hole, an economic disaster sinking into its own filth. This place isn’t a priority for any of you. I can manage. I roll with the punches.

    I keep my relationships amicable with New Wave. Get a working relationship with Parian for the capes who need costumes from her. I take the help where I can find it. I muscled Sophia into the Wards out of necessity, Legend. She was my only hard counter to Lung, my only hard counter to Hookwolf, to Kaiser, perhaps even Krieg as well. She was a cape that dropped into my lap out of sheer happenstance.

    I take what I can get, Legend. And I try to get the damn job done with the table scraps you and the Director here deign to spare me from wherever the hell you are. And I can deal with that. But don’t you sit there, coming on down from your Ivory Tower to see the disaster zone and judge me when all you’ve done is leave us out here to drown in a sinking city."

  • Tattletale outing Coil during the meeting and setting things up to where it's completely viable that he did everything, enough that it fooled Victor.
  • The Raid on Coil's base. Virtually every faction against him has someone who does him in during an alternate timeline, his world is crashing down around him, and then Miss Militia gives us this gem:
    Militia: "The E-88 is the least of your problems Thomas. I am your problem..."

    “I wasn’t always Miss Militia… I wasn’t always the girl of red, white, and blue. I wasn't always Hannah Washington. I did many things before I became a Ward and later a Protectorate hero… a lot of things that gave me skills… skills I’ve never forgotten. I swore to myself I’d kill you when this started. After you killed Assault… after you turned Taylor against us. After you drugged Dinah to the point of no return. Used Taylor to hurt Colin. Sophia. Chris..."

    “You’re no savior. You’re nothing more than another warlord. This’ll be simple then. Killing Warlords is always simple.
