If you haven't seen The Amazing Spider-Man 2, here’s a BIG FAT SPOILER ALERT: Gwen Stacy dies. The Green Goblin drops her from the sky, and Spider-Man swoops in to save her and his webbing does reach her, only for the impact to kill her via whiplash. She dies in Peter Parker’s arms. TEARS, YOU GUISE.

All the fan theories online prepared us for that moment, but it was still a pain and a pleasure to watch. Emma Stone is that rare actress who's a solid player in comedy and drama, but with Andrew Garfield, she has a glow about her that makes us love her more. To watch her die onscreen, with Andrew cradling her in his arms? So good.

  6. When she graduated valedictorian and delivered a pretty personal speech. "We have to be greater than what we suffer. My wish for you is to become hope. People need that. And even if we fail, what better way is there to live?" 

  7. When she wasn’t afraid to give Peter a piece of her mind.

  10. When Peter kissed her in front of the whole school and she went along with it. There is a fine line between gross and sweet PDA—file this one under the latter.

  12. When they broke up and Peter admitted he stalked her just once… a day… maybe, and she was okay with it. (Because it was still the cute, non-creepy kind of stalking.)

  15. This is going to sound superficial, but she looked good even seconds away from death. What—don’t tell me you’ve never had a nightmare about dying when you look like hell! No, just me? Okay.
