* ActionSurvivor: Daniel crashing in his snowmobile, breaking his leg in two places and dragging himself three miles to get help. The question of whether Daniel was conquering a fear of death or just showing a survival instinct is the argument.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: InUniverse and invoked, as the trial tries to determine whether Daniel's actions were fear motivated. A perfect example is Daniel being thrust to speak in front of a large audience, but never speaks thanks to a timely gas leak evacuation. Lena presents it as an example of Daniel's fear not letting him speak, while Bob states he'd have used the same clip to demonstrate Daniel's courage (despite being pushed on stage by his co-worker.)

Lena counters that Daniel never spoke in front of a large group of people again.

* TheRival: Lena for Bob.
-->'''Daniel:''' ''(aghast)'' Are you two ''feuding''?!\\
'''Bob:''' We're not feuding. That would indicate at one time we liked each other. We ''never'' liked each other.

* LiteralMetaphor: Since YourMindMakesItReal, it seems your emotional states can literally manifest. When Dan demands Bob explain why he seemingly abandoned him mid-trial, he tells him, "I was trapped in the inner circle of fault." Dan is unsurprisingly confused, but one may surmise Bob was ''literally'' immobilized by an emotional breakdown made real.
