* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Faith's little freak out with Riley and subsequent HeelFaceTurn appears to be due to Willow and Tara's spell. Or she could just as easily have begun to realize what a monster she has become, [[DeathSeeker leading to her trip to LA]].
* MeaningfulEcho: Faith starts the episode [[MirrorMonologue mocking Buffy in the mirror]], including several deliveries of "Because it's wrong!" She eventually says the line seriously when asked why she wants to stop the vampires at the church.
* MoralEventHorizon (InUniverse): Faith jumps it (again) with the GrandTheftMe plot and sleeping with Riley (as fans have pointed out, this could be considered rape of both Buffy and Riley). Buffy is so angry, she shows up on ''Series/{{Angel}}'' determined to kill Faith regardless of who's in her way, even willing to go through her ex to get at Faith.

* RageAgainstTheReflection: By the time [[GrandTheftMe Fuffy and Baith]] throw down, Faith wails on Buffy with [[PunctuatedPounding a number of derogatory remarks]]... about herself, due to Buffy being in Faith's body. Faith is trying to hurt herself.

* RapeAsDrama: Faith's actions would be treated as rape, legally it would be a murky issue even putting aside the supernatural elements and even way back in her very first appearance there was a subtle hint that Faith is a rapist. The consequences would be followed up on in the coming episodes and later in the season, and Buffy would even appear on Angel willing to go through her ex to get at Faith.

* TakeThat: When Giles asks Faith who's President to see if it's really Buffy; she replies they're not checking for a concussion. Subtle.

* IndulgentFantasySegue: Faith-in-Buffy's-body imagines stabbing Willow to death, after Willow talks about how much she hates her. Faith is actually so shocked by the momentary lapse into fantasy violence that she backpeddles and tells Willow, [[PetTheDog "I would never let her hurt you."]] (It's worth noting that this is the only instance of such a sequence in the entire series, though a [[Recap/AngelS01E19Sanctuary similar sequence appears]] when Faith crosses over to ''Series/{{Angel}}''.

** However, a similar sequence appears again when Faith crosses over to ''Series/{{Angel}}''. In the episode [[Recap/AngelS01E19Sanctuary "Sanctuary"]] she fantasizes about killing Angel, right down to the similar shooting style. Also a ContinuityNod.

* SexyDiscretionShot: The Riley/Faith love scene cuts away to Willow/Tara doing their spell with lots of suggestive heavy breathing, which means we have a SexyDiscretionShot covered by a GettingCrapPastTheRadar shot!

* BondageIsBad: The whole Riley/Faith sex scene and its aftermath seem to be arguing that BDSM and sexual role-play in general are a way for screwed-up people to evade true emotional intimacy.
