21 Sad Tv Scenes That Were Also Beautiful

Some series make you laugh, others make you cry. In this article we are going to discuss about the ones that have done both. Recently, we have made a list of the most remorseful underrated tv scenes. But so many of the scenes were salt and pepper moments — here are some of the best bitter and sweet TV moments!

WARNING: Spoilers ahoy! Also, some discussions contain topics of death.

 1. When Stefan died and was reunited with Lexi on The  Vampire Diaries:

“I still rub my eyes when Stefan sees Lexi in the serial finis after he forfeits himself. Most of it is due to the mellow song ‘Never Say Never,’ which plays in the ambience of the image and makes it so emotionally charged; from that point on in the show, I just weep the whole time. The emotional symbol is unmistakably referenced.”

2. When Jason wanted to go through the door first on A Good Place, he said:

“As soon as Jason finished Madden, I started sobbing cause I knew what was about to take place. I didn’t stop seeing until the episode was over.”

—bethw41d9ffb62

“I started sobbing as soon as it came to my knowledge that Jason knew that he was ready to move out (just a few moments in) and I didn’t pause for the next two hours. Never in my life have I cried over a  mellow film, book, or television episode. It was flawless, but I doubt I’ll be able to watch it again.”

3. When Homer came back to the power plant to support his family and put pictures of Maggie to remind  why the picture was worth it on The Simpsons, he said:

“Homer leaves his job, and has to ask for it back. Burns does by providing him with a plaque that reads, “Don’t forget, you’re here forever.” Homer then covers it with Maggie’s pictures and writes, ‘Do it for her.’ I’m crying right now while writing about it. It’s the sweetest episode I’ve ever seen, and it never fails to move me.”
