* IHatePastMe: [[spoiler: Future Killer Jess, having gotten tossed off the boat, finds herself at the beginning of the day and sees herself [[AbusiveParents physically abusing]] and yelling at her kid. Hating what she used to be, and having long since [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope jumped off the slippery slope]] she [[DropTheHammer smashes her past self's head in]] and tries to take her place. Somehow this does not result in erasing herself from time, but sets up an infinite loop.]]

* ClassicalMythology: The plot lays out a personal hell for Jess with obvious references to the story of Sisyphus. According to the myth, Zeus enchanted the rock so it would roll down before reaching the top of the hill. Jess' intent to save her son represents that enchanted rock which crushes her every time she rolls it up. That's why she always ends up dead no matter how the loop turns, either in the accident or killed by herself on the ship.

** The original [[ClassicalMythology Sisyphus]], who Jess seems to imitate, is said in the film to have cheated death, though the characters fail to remember how. While there are several versions of his myth, there is one where he broke a promise to the death gods. His family failed to offer him proper funeral rights, and he convinced the death gods to offer him a second lease at life in order to prepare his own funeral. He promised to voluntarily return to the Underworld and then failed to do so. In Triangle, there is a sign which says ''Goodbye, Please Return'' and Jess later promises the cab driver (a ferryman like Charon?) that she will come back to him and pay for her ride. Which she doesn't actually intend to do.

*** Moreover, [[spoiler: Jess moves the needle backward on the record rather than forward, perpetuating the loop instead of moving beyond it.]]

** [[spoiler: Jess herself. At least, the ''original'' Jess, who was physically and verbally abusive towards her autistic son, and was killed by the 'Time Loop Jess' whom we follow through the movie]]. Also, [[spoiler: "Mean Jess", who brutally stabbed Downey and Sally, ends up getting beaten to death by ''yet'' another Jess (presumably an earlier iteration of herself)]].
