* 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.
