- Depa Billaba's death in the second issue, followed by Caleb struggling to survive.
- In the third issue, Caleb finally forsaking his Jedi identity and remaking himself as a thief. Also, the way he parts with Kasmir, who very much knows Caleb is trying to protect him and tries to talk Caleb out of leaving him.
- After being scolded really hard by Caleb for Order 66, Commander Grey comes to his senses and is horrified by his actions. When he's unable to get the rest of his brothers to come his senses, he performs a Heroic Suicide by destroying their ship's shields and letting Kasmir and Kleeve kill them. What's even more tragic is that at the beginning of Rebels Season 2, Kanan initially has heavy resentment towards the clones for having a hand in ruining his life (unaware that not all of them did so willingly, and not buying the bio-chip explanation), which means Kanan goes fifteen more years not knowing that one of the men who tried to kill him earlier sacrificed his own life to save him.
- Kanan's jumpiness over returning to Kaller and his inability to really even speak of his past.
- The final panel in issue 6 where Kanan lays unconscious due to a knife wound and the ghosts of his past, including his younger self, Depa, and the clone friends who betrayed him, stare upon him with pitiful looks on their faces
