  • After the doping scandal and Yuuri seeks refuge in Hasetsu, his older sister Mari tries to comfort him and tells him that she's always ready to lend an ear if he wants to talk about it.

  • The very end where Yuuri decides to confess his love for Viktor on ice on international television after keeping their relationship secret for three years.
