Heartwarming / To Hell and Back (Arrowverse)

Go To

Spoilers Off applies to all Heartwarming pages, so all spoilers are unmarked. You Have Been Warned!

  • The castaways becoming a family. They may have been in Hell, but they weren't totally deprived of light.
  • When the Queens and Wests learn their loved ones are coming home. Especially Mr Allen's reaction, who took the loss of his son so bad he almost committed suicide. And the Tears of Joy flow again when Barry visits him.
    • The guards bend the rules for Henry to allow him to hug his son for the first time even though his visits aren’t conjugal.
  • With Oliver being the product of Moira's infidelity with Malcolm, Robert's behaviour grows even admirable — it wasn't his son lost at sea, yet he mourned him and let him in his life and heart again all the same. If a man has the raising of a child, that child is his, and none can say different.

  • Astra's utter relief and joy to learn Kara survived Krypton's destruction.
  • Slade escaping Waller and finding his way back to his kids. They all glomp him — even Kal, who was barely a toddler the last time they interacted, is happy to see him again, to the point of calling Slade 'Papa' just as he did when he was a baby.
  • Even if it's a mark of how screwed up the timeline was, Batman never appeared since Martha and Thomas never were shot in the alley. Just for once, Bruce Wayne got to grow up with his parents.
  • Dante awkwardly comforting Barry right after Zoom psychologically tortured the speedster. He really doesn't know what to say, he just can be there... and sometimes, that's all someone needs.
  • After Barry and Dante are rescued from Zoom's prison, Dante and Cisco begin reconciling once Dante reaffirms to Cisco that he doesn't blame him for what Zoom did and that he'd like to have a stronger relationship with his brother. Cisco agrees to reconciliation, and the two begin to mend their broken relationship.

How well does it match the trope?
