** While a shape can be seen inside the block of ice, we never see exactly what the Thing looks like when it landed on Earth (questions of whether that's its "original" shape aside. What few glimpses we do get suggest that it looks like [[spoiler: a massive, tentacled, multi-limbed insect of some kind]].

* HopeSpot: The ending offers the slightest of slight ones - Kate [[spoiler: and Carter have stopped the Thing from escaping,]] head back to the snowmobile, and are going to head for a Russian research station about fifty miles away. [[spoiler: Then Kate notices his earring's missing... If Carter was really heading in the direction of the Russian base, Kate might survive and, even if Mac and Childs die (or one of them is the Thing), then [[CantStoptheSignal word will get out]]. But if he was just taking her away in a random direction...]]

* WomenAreWiser: Juliette is the [[YouHaveToBelieveMe only person who believes Kate]] when she says the alien is disguised as one of them. [[spoiler:Subverted because she's already been assimilated and is intent on luring Kate someone quiet to do the same.]]

* GenreSavvy: [[spoiler: The Thing becomes progressively more intelligent after each of its encounters. After being burned under the shed, it learns to try and isolate the cast members one by one. When it's overpowered anyway, it starts trying to sow dissent amongst the group. In addition, it shows that it's perfectly willing to sacrifice parts of itself in order to take the pressure off it. Finally, it keeps its dog form in hiding in case all of its other forms are killed.]]
