* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler: [=McLeod=] goes out giving Cole his regards, and Cole himself can't help feeling sad at having to kill him. Helps that Nelse has been a NobleDemon from the beginning.]]

* EvenEvilHasStandards: [=McLeod=] makes it a point to rebuke the {{Mook}} who helped murder Mississipi's friend. "It ''really'' shouldn't have taken four of you...."


Added DiffLines:

* NobleDemon: [=McLeod=] is this in spades. He makes no attempt to defend the henchman that took part in the murder of Mississippi's friend, and is generally shown to be quite an affable sort of guy with lines he won't cross.

* OhCrap: After Mississippi kills a man in his EstablishingCharacterMoment, a mook attempts to kill him, only for the gun to be shot out of said Mook's hand by Cole Thorton. Thorton then taunts the man to pick up the gun and draw. Before the mook can prove he is TooDumbToLive, MacLeod forbids him from doing so saying that he can't afford to lose another man. When the Mook complains of his boss' faith in him, MacLead correctly identifies Thorton for who he is. The Mook doesn't say anything, but the look on his face is more than enough.
