* ReveallingReflection: Ward's taking Akela's place goes fine until he accidentally passes in front of a mirror and the handler looking at the camera feed sees a white man in spectacles instead of a black woman.

* [[ByTheBookCop By The Book Agent]]: May, fed up with Coulson's softer approach due to his personal connection to Akela, goes behind his back to try and apprehend her herself. She promises the latter a painless apprehension and a fair trial if she comes quietly.
-->'''Akela:''' Did Coulson send you?
-->'''May:''' No. He feels sorry for you. ''I don't.''



* CameBackWrong: Yet another hint. Akela asks May at the end, "What did they ''do'' to [Coulson]?", implying that she saw something with her x-ray vision.
* ChekhovsGun: At the start of the episode, it is shown that Fitz has made a pistol-sized version of the Night-Night Gun. Coulson later uses it to apprehend Akela. After suggesting Ward could use it if he misses, Fitz-Simmons backtrack and suggest he could use it against multiple assailants; he does exactly that after escaping from the aftermath of the "mission" he did in Akela's place.
** Akela's objective, the formulas on the walls - what were they? The question isn't answered for another 25 episodes.
* ContinuityNod: The "Night-Night gun" finds use once again, modified this time into a more practical multi-shot pistol - and again, Fitz is told not to call it that. Fitz also brings up how his and Simmons' last trip into the field in "0-8-4" was a bad one.

* NonchalantDodge: During their fight, Akela tries to pitch a glass shard at Melinda. She barely moves her head to avoid it, then looks back with not even a hint of concern.
* OhCrap: When Ward realizes that he looked into a reflective surface while wearing the x-ray specs, he has this reaction. He quickly tells Fitz and Simmons, who were calling him for tips on disposing the eye implant, to cut the wire before the handler activated the kill switch.

* PowerPerversionPotential: In the stinger, Fitz tries to get Skye to use the x-ray glasses to read Ward's cards during their blackjack game. Skye points out that doing so will allow her to see through his clothes, so he quickly excuses himself. She proceeds to use that feature on Ward, instead.

** A spy with an artificial eye that handlers can see through. Considering that this is a Creator/JossWhedon production, the idea was likely taken from the backstory for [[{{Series/Firefly}} Shepherd Book]].

* BrickJoke[=/=]ChekhovsGag: Before the mission starts, Ward and Coulson discuss Skye's weapons training, mentioning that she mixes up the safety and the magazine release, and also that she says "Bang!" when she pulls the trigger. Midway through the episode, while Akela is attacking their van, Skye tries to shoot Akela... and accidentally releases the magazine, then lamely says "Bang?"

* WrongGenreSavvy: Skye assumes Akela must have psychic powers to do what she does, even though her teammates think it's still in the realm of science fiction. The actual explanation is much more mundane, though still beyond the capabilities of S.H.I.E.L.D.

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: The dozens of red-masked, briefcase-carrying men who descend on the crowded subway station faze absolutely nobody.
