* DeadPersonImpersonation: It turns out that Leslie's husband [[spoiler:actually is dead, and on the way to tell her the news, his UncannyFamilyResemblance cousin got a TapOnTheHead and ended up with IdentityAmnesia. Everyone presumed that he was the dead husband, and only an operation lets them all know this was the wrong assumption.]]

* DeadGuyJunior: Most of Anne's kids are named after dead people or family/friends. Ditto Leslie's kids, and most of the other Islanders'. This was a fairly standard naming convention in that place and time.

Added DiffLines:

** The adaptation ''Series/AnneWithAnE'' also strikes a darker tone, choosing to focus more on Anne's DarkAndTroubledPast, and portrays Anne as having symptoms of PTSD as a result (while also retaining her usual love of whimsy, imagination, and big words despite this).

** There are some references made throughout the Montgomery's work to the plight of children who were adopted from asylums and used by their new guardians solely to work on the farm or in the house, without receiving affection, good clothing, and a proper education.

* EvilRoy: He's not evil, but Roy Gardiner does serve perfectly as a parody of a young Anne's desires for a husband. He's tall, dark, and handsome. He writes poetry and sends her flowers. The problem? He's really dull. Even his sister tells Anne (after she rejects his proposal) that she would have been horribly bored if she married him.
