* BigEntrance: When Harry confronts Gentleman Johnny Marcone, he does so by blowing off the doors of his gentleman's club in a burst of magic (towards himself, protecting himself with a shield, so as to keep bystanders from getting hurt), then fireballing the jukebox into slag, and popping every lightbulb in the joint to make an impression. In a later story, Marcone has [[GenreSavvy remembered this]], and has the dramatic entry points of his establishments furnished with flimsy doors, so that when similar things happen, the shrapnel won't do any damage. The ''strategic'' entry points, on the other hand, are equipped [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy with reinforced steel]].

** Mentioned again seconds later, when Harry disrupts [[spoiler:Victor Sells']] concentration by shoulder-checking him, remarking that one of the major potential weaknesses of being a powerful wizard is that [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer sometimes wizards stop expecting threats from anything mundane]].

** In Murphy's defense, she ''may'' have been thinking that if Harry went to the hospital his magic might short out some crucial equipment and kill some patients. That's been a concern in other books when Harry's been injured. Still, it would have been smarter for her to let him crash on the couch in her office rather than leave him alone at home.

** Murphy has one when [[spoiler:she answer's Harry's phone by saying, "Harry Dresden's residence". This is how Victor Sells knows where to send his demon to attack]].

** [[spoiler:During Marcone's soulgazing with Harry, Harry saw a hint of something that Marcone was keeping deep and hidden but this also galvanized Marcone into the man he was]] This point of fact would come up several times as Harry learns more abut it.

* BlessedWithSuck: There is a (seemingly) B plot in the distribution of the illegal drug Third Eye. Harry doesn't particularly care about it (mundane drugs are not his problem), until he discovers that [[spoiler:it's a ''magic'' drug that ''forcibly'' opens the Sight, even on mundanes. [[GoMadFromTheRevelation Users of the drug are driven completely insane from the first use, unable to ever forget what they've seen.]] And since supernatural Chicago is not a nice place...]]

** Harry has a minor one when he realized [[spoiler:after soulgazing Johnny Marcone and seeing [[PragmaticVillainy what an efficient means he has to running his "business" he is the one to look away first. This in turn makes him lose his air of confidence he had just prior.]]]]

* DeliberatelyPainfulClothing: Harry is given an amulet that belongs to the man he's been hired to locate. It's made from a dead scorpion, and Harry muses about how nasty it would be to wear against bare skin, where its pincers could catch in a man's chest hairs or scratch the top of a woman's breasts; unfortunately, wearing a shirt in between would spoil whatever magical benefit it might confer.
