* AdaptationalVillainy: Carrington's short story counterpart, Blair, does quickly realize that the Thing is a monster and can't be reasoned with. Although he takes it too far in the opposite direction by threatening everyone on the base, it's also implied that a combination of paranoia and guilt has driven him more than a little out of his mind by this point, while Carrington receives no such explanation for his behavior (Nikki suggests he's acting out of exhaustion, but this is clearly a weak defense).

Also, it's implied that Blair's idea to thaw the alien was influenced by a telepathic suggestion from the Thing itself, while this version of the creature lacks the ability to influence Carrington.
