* TakeThat: Georgia Roux snarks on Sammy for being an avid reader of Creator/NoraRoberts and StephenieMeyer (authors that King ''[[{{Hatedom}} really hates]]'') and says that ''Literature/HarryPotter'' rules (King loves the series). However, this is halfway to TakeThatMe, because Georgia Roux is clearly not a nice person.

* InvisibleToNormals: In a few short sections set from the viewpoint of Julia Shumway's corgi, it's stated that dogs are able to hear the voices of the dead due to their extra-sensitive hearing. A random ghost points the dog to the VADER file (which had fallen behind a couch, unbeknownst to anyone), which leads to Andrea Ginnell finding the file and finally finding out about Rennie's corrupt side businesses.

* ObviouslyEvil: Though he is deceitful and manipulative to an unforeseeable degree, it is amazing how often people who have pretty much known [[spoiler: "Big Jim"]] their whole lives can watch him sneer and laugh at the misfortunes of others and the chaos surrounding them and not be more than quietly disgusted for the most part.

As a consequence, [[spoiler:protecting them even becomes his final goal in life (after killing Barbie and his dad, that is) - although by the time he decides on this, he's gone [[AxCrazy completely mad]] and the safest place for the children would be as far away from Junior as possible.]]

Added DiffLines:
* PrettyLittleHeadshots: Graphically and horrifically averted multiple times. Often when somebody is shot in the head, they still live for several moments or even hours before dying. One man gets shot in the face twice, screams for mercy from his attacker, and then only dies after being shot a third time in the heart.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Rather amazingly for anyone who has read ''Literature/TheStand'', Colonel Cox and the rest of the military and federal government. There's some habitual, knee-jerk secrecy, but despite some dark, early intimations of government involvement with the dome, everyone on the outside really is trying their damndest to save Chesster's Mill. They ''fail'', of course, but not for lack of effort or even intellect.
