I used to cry a lot more easily than I do now. I’ve toughened up through the years. But there are still some TV and movie moments that make me tear up, and some that actually make me weep. Here are a few of my moments. There are more, but for the sake of brevity, I’ll limit them. And for those of you that haven’t watched these yet, there may be some spoilers.
1. BuffY the Vampire Slayer: The one that absolutely made me bawl was when Oz left Willow. Oz was one of my favorite characters and I didn’t want him to go. Willow was also a favorite of mine, and I couldn’t stand watching her heart break.
2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer: At the very end when Spike sacrificed himself to “save the world”. Buffy finally says “I love you”. Then Spike says “No, you don’t. But thanks for saying it.”
3. The Vampire Diaries: When Damon tells Elena for the first time that he loves her. He says, “I don’t deserve you. But my brother does.” And he says, “God, I wish you didn’t have to forget this. But you do.” And this big tear falls out of his eye. Then he makes her forget the whole thing.
4. Moonlight: When Beth tells Mick they can’t live in each other’s world and that she “can’t do this anymore”. He walks out and goes down the hall and stops and puts his forehead against the wall like he’s going to cry. She puts her head on her arm against the wall of her apartment and starts sobbing. I thought it was going to end that way. That one actually has a happy ending, but I won’t say how in case someone wants to watch it and hasn’t yet.
These are just a few of mine. What are some of yours? I would love to hear from you!
