* BloodierAndGorier: Episode two alone probably has more blood and gore in it than the rest of the series combined. Still not ''incredibly'' gory, but relatively speaking...
** Justified as Freelancers are already using the Mk 6 armor which is, at least until Halo 4 comes out, the deadliest PowerArmor in the military's arsenal. The people they're fighting don't, indicated for example by their lack of the usual voice distortion effects, making them MadeOfPlasticine by comparison.

** Retroactively for Washington. We see how Wash started off as an [[WideEyedIdealist idealistic]] [[NiceGuy nice]], if [[{{Adorkable}} stiff and awkward]], guy. We now see how the Epsilon incident affected his personality so drastically. However, in a more straight sense, we have how, due to spending time on Blue Team, his nicer attitude is coming back, albeit without the {{Adorkable}} status.

He has only one or two lines and spends most of his screen time being injured by Tex and enemy soldiers.

* TookALevelInJerkass: The Freelancer flashbacks show that almost all of the Freelancers (most notably South, C.T., Wash, and even to a certain extent Maine) used to be idealistic and actually fairly heroic.

In fact Wyoming seems to be the only Freelancer who was a Jerkass to start with, and didn't change at all between the flashbacks and ''Blood Gulch''. York seems to be the only one who didn't lose his sense of moral decency after the team broke up, though [[spoiler:all we know about North's eventual fate so far is that South abandoned him to the Meta]].

* TrueCompanions: The Freelancers come off as once being this the more we see them. Kind of summed up by North a bit snarkily in Episode 5 when he comments that York and Wash are "my friends, for reasons beyond my comprehension". Episode 12 shows this is a deconstruction. Despite being such a close-knit unit, they still fell apart eventually. [[spoiler:This led to Carolina being pretty much completely unable to trust anyone later on.]]
** This particularly becomes a deconstruction when you realise that the Blood Gulch crew, who were recruited and trained to hate and fight each other, have become far more friendly towards one another in recent seasons, while the Freelancers, who are supposed to be a team and work together, are the ones who fell apart due to in-fighting and conflicting loyalties. In other words, the Freelancers were ''supposed'' to be TrueCompanions, while the Blood Gulch crew were the ones who actually ''achieved'' it.
** C.T. pointed out early on that the failure of Project Freelancer to achieve True Companion status was due at least partially to the Leaderboard. Instead of encouraging the members of the squad to work together, it turned almost half the team into [[CompetitionFreak Competition Freaks]], with Carolina, South being two notable examples. Instead of working as a team, we got situations where Maine and Wyoming were more concerned with being the ones to take out Tex, and Carolina was less concerned with achiving the mission objectives than doing better than Tex during said mission. This constant competition bred resentment, distrust, and ultimately was a factor in the team eating itself.

** In Episode 11, after discussion with the Reds and Blues about the [[TalkingLightbulb Monitor unit]] that Epsilon used as a body from part way into Season 7 to part way into Season 8, Carolina gets angry and stops talking about it entirely when she realizes that they left it on the floor of a warehouse. Despite it being ''the'' reason Tucker was defending the temple at Sandtrap in Season 7 and apparently a very important artifact to the Insurrectionist Leader, nobody bothers to look for it further after that [[spoiler:even when the gang go back to the same warehouse where they left it in the first place. Considering Carolina's HeelRealization, this is especially jarring, since it could have helped to go through with her [[TheAtoner atonement]] following the death of the Director if she had tried to grab it on the way out, and Tucker didn't even seem to mention why he thought it was a "big pain in the ass"]]. However, with the release of ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'' and its focus on [[HigherTechSpecies the Forerunners]], this might be a SequelHook to lead into the new trilogy while [[spoiler:Carolina and Epsilon hunt down the remaining technology of Project Freelancer]].
