* IdiotBall: The villains are [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy scarily competent]] at first, but suddenly when it's convenient for the hero their competence goes down a few notches and they start committing unnecessary blunders that could ([[spoiler:and then did]]) destroy their EvilPlan (like [[spoiler:killing the governor's personal assistant without coming up with an explanation for her absence]]), though it is implied that they did so out of sheer nervousness and desperation. The whole thing is [[GambitRoulette unnecessarily risky]], so it's amazing they didn't make more mistakes.
