  • The history of The Watchers is pretty sad, with Og's narration really making tough to watch.
    Og: The Creator formed us on the second day, the day He made the Heavens. We watched over Adam and Eve, saw their frailty and their love. And then we saw their fall, and we pitied them. We were not stone then, but light. It was not our place to interfere, yet we chose to try and help mankind and when we disobeyed the Creator, he punished us. We were encrusted by your world. Rock and mud shackled our fiery glow. Still we taught mankind all we knew of creation. With our help they rose from the dust and became great and mighty, but then they turned our gifts to violence. Only one man protected us, your grandfather Methuselah. We were hunted and most of us killed. Those who lived were left prisoners in these stony shells, marooned on this barren land. We begged the Creator to take us home, but he was always silent. And now you claim that you have heard his call, Samyaza cannot accept this. A man, when it is man who broke the world. But I look at you, and I see what I saw in Adam again. The man I knew, the man I came to love.

  • The death of Na'el. Ham just got her out of the pit of corpses, only for her to get her foot caught in a trap and left behind to get trampled by the Cainites. Ham only briefly knew her, but he knew she was good and was willing to bring her onto the ark not only as a wife, but as a companion.
  • The death of Samyaza, leader of the Watchers. As he's being killed by Tubal-Cain, he stares up into the sky and cries out to God, "My Creator, forgive me!" And God does.
  • On the same subject, the Og's death as he looks back to Noah with a smile and just says "Goodbye, son of Adam". Before ascending to Heaven.
  • The nameless Cainite woman who keeps pleading desperately for the man not to kill her baby for food.
  • Holy cow, the climactic scene of Noah being prepared to murder his own granddaughters. Ila starts pleading - not for their lives - because she has accepted that her children are going to die. She just begs Noah to let her calm them so they won't die crying. She even insists on holding them as Noah does it, and screams for him to do it quickly.
    • There's also Naameh's begging for Noah to have mercy on the babies. Noah doesn't realise it's twins at first, and she says "you can't kill two". When Noah ignores her and climbs up the ladder, she collapses crying.

How well does it match the trope?
