Added DiffLines:

* OutGambitted: Gregor assumes he has the upper hand in the negotiation by threatning to have Natacha killed if they don't pay him. Too late, he realizes that the woman's ''own boyfriend'' is more than ready to let her die rather than pay up.

** Creator/MichaelLonsdale appears as a colleague of Reno's [[spoiler:who helps with Sam's surgery after a shoot-out]], and who happens to be a fan of UsefulNotes/The47Ronin legend.



* EvenEvilHasStandards: Gregor's contact (the man Gregor intimidates by [[WouldHurtAChild almost sniping some random kid, just to show he's determined to kill him if he's double-crossed]]) get some serious jitters from Gregor pulling this (and even diverts Gregor's shot at the last second).
** Gregor's OhCrap reaction is partially this when he figures out that, ''yes'', the Russians [[RuthlessForeignGangsters are perfectly willing to let Natascha die]] (especially the man who is ''her boyfriend'') before paying him so much as a red cent over the case (the rest is his reaction to being OutGambitted).

* RuleOfThree: The "lessons" Sam learnt as a spy: "When in doubt, there is no doubt", the second one (in sarcastic jest) is that he forgot who gave him the first lesson, and the third one is said by Vincent in narration at the end: you will have a lot of questions but very few answers, so best to deal with it and carry on to the next assignment.

* SelfSurgery: Done by [[spoiler: Sam]]. For his credit, he mostly acted as an instructor and asked if they now manage to stitch him before passing out. [[spoiler: And with [[TheReveal the final reveal]] we learn he did it only [[{{Determinator}} to uphold the masquerade]] ]].

* MeaningfulEcho: Sam claims the man he's talking to about triangulating a phone number is a friend from high school. Obviously it isn't true, as Vincent realises, but he doesn't actually care and repeats the claim about his own friend later on. His refusal to knock him out suggests Vincent may have been telling the truth though.

* PsychoForHire: Minor example with Spence: whatever else he may be lying about in terms of experience, he certainly can be classified as a BloodKnight. Played very much straight with Gregor (of the cold, methodical type).
