Added DiffLines:

* MotiveRant: DiscussedTrope. When Sidney prompts the killer for a motive, he derides the whole idea of a Motive Rant, pointing out that the villain tends to be [[NothingIsScarier a lot scarier if there's no motive]]. However, this is immediately double subverted when he gives her one anyway.

Added DiffLines:

* SinsOfOurFathers: The killer explains that his motive for wanting to kill Sidney is that her mother Maureen had an affair with the killer's father, which caused his parents to divorce and his own mother to run away. Which, obviously, is hardly something that Sidney can be held personally responsible for.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Gale Weathers may be rude and egotistical, but she was right about [[spoiler:Cotton Weary being innocent and Sidney ignoring the facts to defend her mother.]]
