  • Marie Laveau's genuine kindness with Cora, as her son was killed by a lynch mob in the 60's.
  • Fiona reviving a stillborn baby for a woman in "Burn, Witch, Burn!"
    • At the end of the episode, she praises Zoe for protecting the Coven, stating she loves a witch who can fight.
  • Nan going out into the undead horde to save Luke.
  • Zoe using the education tapes/shows that people use for their little kids so Kyle can re-learn to talk. If it works for children, it would work for someone who got resurrected.

  • Myrtle, in her own brutal way, returning Cordelia's sight. By stealing one eye each from Quentin and Cecily.
  • Luke's mother singing to him in the hospital after not wanting to believe Nan's readings. Up to Eleven when she takes Nan's hand during the song.
  • Fiona comforting Marie after the Cornrow City Massacre in "The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks".
    • Inverted later on, Marie tending to Fiona after the latter collapses during a spellcasting to take out the Delphi corporation. Beforehand, She comforts Cordelia after the latter get bitch-slapped by Fiona.
  • Myrtle gives Zoe one of her most valued possessions to hock so that she and Kyle can get enough money to get away and start over somewhere safe. Say what you will about her, Myrtle actually seems to care about the girls at the school.
  • Queenie, Madison and Zoe playing Transmutation tag. Takes a bit of a nasty turn when Zoe teleports onto a fence spike. But it's sweet until then.
    • Also sweet: Queenie tries to bring Zoe back.
  • Blink and you'll miss it: during Stevie Nicks's Seven Wonders at the beginning of the finale, Queenie is looking at a photo of Nan.

  • There is something almost heartwarming about Stevie Nicks' appearance in the beginning of the final to perform the Fleetwood Mac song "Seven Wonders". It's a really good way to start such an episode.
  • Madison suggesting that she and Zoe could share Kyle and revealing that he won't die if she has sex with him and then leading her into a threesome. Even if it's a bit squicky considering two of them are dead. Too bad Madison could not handle sharing him and Kyle preferring Zoe.

How well does it match the trope?
