** Doubles as FridgeHorror when you realize that, if his pushover attitude hadn't been short-circuited by receiving the mutually exclusive orders to [[spoiler: kill both Michael and Trevor]] at the same time, he very well might have just kept doing whatever he was told to, [[spoiler: killing one or both of his friends in the process, probably without even considering another option.]]

* The area Mirror Park is located about where Glen Park is in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas''. However, while Glen Park was gang-controlled territory, Mirror Park is full of hipsters and certainly can't be considered a dangerous neighborhood. Assuming that, like the 3D Universe's Los Santos, the HD Lost Santos used to have a Glen Park in 1992, how did it go from being a rough neighborhood to a trendy one? One word: [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gentrification Gentrification.]] Granted, some of it also has to do with the fact that Glen Park is based off of MacArthur Park, and Mirror Park is meant to be Echo Park and Silver Lake. Gentrification would still be an apt explanation for the change in neighborhood, with the implicit message of "millennials try to help low-income neighborhood, but only end up pushing everyone else out and making it hipsterville."

* It's very subtle, but during the intro, right as Dave takes the first shot that hits Brad, you see Brad walk in front of Trevor right before the bullet lands. If [[spoiler: Michael's dialogue and Trevor's suspicions concerning the event]] are to be believed, Brad may have inadvertently taken a shot meant for Trevor. He saved Trevor's life and [[spoiler: derailed a plan that would've otherwise gone perfectly and given Mike a scott-free escape from the criminal life]].

* Why does [[AxCrazy Trevor]] have the highest starting money out of all of the GTA protagonists with $100,000? Because, as revealed in Online, he continued making money by making meth and having the player character in Online take out his competitors. It also explains why The Lost are in such a pitiful state in the single player game due to so many missions in Online involving taking out members of The Lost.

* Nikki, one of the dancers at the Vanilla Unicorn, is an African-American woman who dances in purple underwear and boots. Take her home and you'll see her house is located in Strawberry, very close to the Balla-controlled Grove Street. Kind of explains her choice of clothing colour.

** [[RuleOfThree Also also,]] the antagonists are all paired with protagonists who mirror their traits, at least, in the eyes of others. [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder Michael takes down Stretch]], [[AxCrazy Trevor kills Haines]], and [[ConsummateProfessional Franklin handles]] [[AffablyEvil Wei Cheng.]]

* Concerning Molly Schultz's [[spoiler: death]]: In every previous appearance, she remained calm and professional, even when [[spoiler: withholding money from an angry Franklin]]. Then, [[spoiler: after Michael storms out of Solomon's office to get the film back, he gets a call from Devin Weston saying that Molly's high-strung and won't talk it out. After that, she suddenly panics as soon as Michael's in sight and drives like a maniac trying to get away from Michael, ultimately leading to her death.]] How did she know [[spoiler: Michael]] was coming? Only two people knew [[spoiler: Michael was coming after her]], Richard and Devin. Richard wouldn't tell her, so clearly Devin must have called her. Devin clearly didn't tell her the truth [[spoiler: (that you just wanted to talk)]] or she wouldn't have panicked like she did. So, a normally collected, professional woman [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness completely loses it after Devin talks to her]]...the only logical conclusion is that Devin told her ''something'' to make her that afraid of you. What the hell did he say you were planning on ''doing'' to her?

** Emergency rooms are required to at least stabilize people who come in regardless of ability to pay, so if he can get a passerby to call 911, he should be OK. He'll probably be in a lot of debt and an unpleasant legal limbo (depending on whether the FIB [[spoiler: bothered to get a death certificate, which they probably didn't]]), but he should be able to at least get basic medical attention.
