* ObfuscatingStupidity: On Hayley's part. Jeff is trying to manipulate her into making the first move so that he can have some plausible deniability if necessary. She knows the entire time what he's doing and she plays dumb pretending to fall into his trap.

* LittleDeadRidingHood: Hayley's iconic garment is a red hoodie that matches the Little Red Riding Hood vibe of the first part of the movie. This symbolism is the result of a lucky coincidence, however, as the hoodie was actually orange and only turned red in color correction. The film makers swear up and down [[FauxSymbolism this was not meant to be symbolic]].

* KnightTemplar: Hayley believes herself to be on a righteous while murderous crusade, lashing out because of her anger at uncaught pedophiles. And she gives some preachy {{Hannibal Lecture}}s along the way.
