* When Butters goes out to fight Nicodemus, he puts on Harry's duster ... which still has the "knife" from the Jesus collection. Butters goes into the fight carrying the ''Spear of Destiny''.

** And ''Aftermath'' is Murphy's notes that he added in, maybe as a lesson to future readers not to underestimate a BadassNormal.


Added DiffLines:

* Harry starting the war with the Red Court for Susan's sake becomes a total Tearjerker after ''Changes.'' [[spoiler: He began the war to save her life and protect her from becoming a vampire. He ended the war by tricking her into sating her bloodlust and murdering her.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Aside from any advice Malcolm gives, just giving Harry the opportunity to talk to his Dad is very much something that the above would do.

* Three-Eye being illegal, normally it takes time to get a new drug banned but Three-Eye contains peyote and hallucinogenic mushrooms, and the base is absinthe, which was banned in the States at the time of writing.

* Kincaid serving as Ivy's bodyguard makes a huge mount of sense when one considers that most of Ivy's power comes from magic, whereas Kincaid's primary means of beating ass is with guns, melee weapons, and physical power. They're an excellent compliment for one another who can support each other in areas that they can't cover.

* Consider all the paperwork probably generated about Harry: police reports, White Court records, his own case files, increasingly antagonistic reports from villians. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Ivy knows exactly what sort of man Harry is and knows he would protect her]].

Added DiffLines:

* It's mentioned several times that magic requires strong belief and emotion to pull off. So how is Harry able to kill off ''every single Red Court vampire?'' Well, he's just murdered the woman he loves, which was only the latest part of the TraumaCongaLine he's been through all book, not to mention with decades of experience turning pain and anger into magic. As for belief? These guys are responsible for Susan being turned, his rape, and pretty much the whole above-mentioned TraumaCongaLine, not to mention that he's in full-on PapaWolf mode. Not too surprising that he can pull it off, really.

** Since we now know that the mantle of the Winter Lady will react VIOLENTLY to any attempt at activity there, this was actually a pretty clever assassination attempt.

* In the scene where Harry convinces Elaine to help him contact the Mothers, she begs him not to ask her to do it. An initial read makes it seem like she doesn't want to be further involved Fae politics, but after completing the book, it seems more likely that [[spoiler: she is trying to keep him from falling into Aurora's BatmanGambit, which relies on Harry getting the Unraveling from the Mothers.]]

* In ''Backup'' we find out about the Oblivion War, a war waged to erase the Old Ones from living memory. To make them forgotten, and thus powerless. The brilliance comes in when you realize that one of the definitions of oblivion is "the state of being forgotten, especially by the public." He even says that when the Archive erases the final memory of an Old One(its own) it is sentenced to oblivion.
