* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Both Caroline and Miss Williams tried to protect someone in the name of what they thought was justice, but their lies caused the actual murderer, whom neither of them would want to shield, to get away with what they'd done.

* ParentsAsPeople: Lampshaded by Poirot when he finds strange that every witness seems to forget that the murder victim has a baby daughter: Miss Williams as the governess discusses it when she explains that middle class children know that their parents love them but are too busy providing for them to pay attention; the love between the affluent murder victim and his wife was so intense that the baby could never have been their first concern.

* LivingLieDetector: Miss Williams to a degree. When she was a governess, none of the kids even tried to lie to her, feeling that it'd be pointless. Poirot, at first, tells to other people that he's writing a book about the case, but he tells the truth to Miss Williams right away.

* ExactWords: Caroline is overheard fuming about the unfairness of the situation. [[spoiler:She's not mad that her husband has fallen for yet another model, but that he's going to break the ''model's'' heart.]] The key phrase is, "You and your women!" [[spoiler:In the Summation Poirot notes the plural, implying there's nothing special to Amyas about this latest woman, Elsa, after all.]]

* DoesNotLikeMen: Miss Williams. Years of observing the womanizing Amyas probably didn't help.

* DeathByWomanScorned: Amyas' womanising ways eventually got him murdered. [[spoiler:Elsa, one of his lovers, genuinely believed his claims when he told her that he'd leave his wife for her. Then she overheard the truth, got her heart broken, and killed Amyas in revenge.]]

* ClingyJealousGirl: Gender-inverted with Amyas. The infamous rows between the couple is mostly not because of Amyas' frequent flings with other women, but because he's jealous that Caroline seem to prioritise her sister Angela over him.

* AssholeVictim: Possibly subverted. Several characters sided with Caroline Crale when she was convicted of murdering her husband Amyas, since he was having an affair with his model - one of many. [[spoiler:It turns out he never intended to leave Caroline, and he was murdered by said model. It depends on the reader whether you think that the fact that he never intended to leave Caroline is enough to get Amyas out of the "Asshole" category, or if you think he's still an asshole for having an affair and letting Elsa think he loved her enough to leave his wife.]]

* AmbiguouslyGay: Miss Williams is an old maid who takes DoesNotLikeMen to the hardcore and sees Caroline as a saintly martyr to one of that filthy kind. To the more modern reader, it may look like she'd been attracted to Caroline.
