* FiveSecondForeshadowing: When Sherlock mentions Watson's brother, Watson glances over at him with a confused "Hmmm?", clearly having no idea what Sherlock is talking about. In the next scene, Watson informs Sherlock that "Harry" is his sister Harriet.

** When Sherlock and Watson go to a café to stake out the killer, they walk down Rathbone Street, London W1. Basil Rathbone played Sherlock Holmes in several late 1930s/early 1940s films.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment:
** Sherlock has a show-stopping one when he first meets [[TheWatson John]]. It is, naturally, a startlingly accurate analysis of John and his background after having known the man for [[SherlockScan all of two minutes]].
--->'''John''': Is that it?\\
'''Sherlock''': Is that what?\\
'''John''': We've only just met, and we're gonna go look at a flat?\\
'''Sherlock''': Problem?\\
'''John''': We don't know a thing about each other. I don't know where we're meeting, I don't even know your name.\\
'''Sherlock''': I know you're an army doctor and you've been invalided home from Afghanistan; I know you've got a brother who's worried about you but you won't go to him for help because you don't approve of him; possibly because he's an alcoholic - more likely because he recently walked out on his wife, and I know that your therapist thinks your limp's psychosomatic; quite correctly, I'm afraid. [[DeadpanSnarker That's enough to be going on with, don't you think?]]
** [[InHarmsWay John]]'s ECM goes like this:
---> '''Sherlock:''' You're a doctor. An Army doctor.\\
'''John:''' Yes.\\
'''Sherlock:''' Any good?\\
'''John:''' ''Very'' good.\\
'''Sherlock:''' Seen a lot of injuries, then. Violent deaths.\\
'''John:''' Well, yes.\\
'''Sherlock:''' Bit of trouble too, I bet?\\
'''John:''' Of course, yes. Enough for a lifetime, far too much.\\
'''Sherlock:''' Want to see some more?\\
'''John''': [[JumpedAtTheCall Oh God, yes.]]

* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Two of Beth Davenport's colleagues took her car keys from her handbag on her birthday so she couldn't drink and drive. Unfortunately this meant she also had to take a cab, and the one she took had Jeff Hope as the driver. Without realising it, her colleagues accidentally condemned her. Although, had she driven drunk, she could well have died anyway.

-->'''Sherlock''': You ''did'' go to prison.

* ManipulativeBastard: The serial killer. [[spoiler:He first talks Sherlock into his EvilPlan without even using his gun by manipulating Sherlock's arrogance and curiosity. Then, once Sherlock reveals that the gun is a fake in any case and he has no need to take a pill at all, he gets him to take it anyway to prove that he's really the smartest. He's only stopped by a well-placed shot from John.]]
** Interestingly, the serial killer in the pilot version of the first story was not this way at all: [[spoiler:the cabbie simply drugs Sherlock in public (with everyone around assuming thanks to his acting that he's simply drunk), drags him back to his home, and presents him with the pill game when Sherlock is still too drugged to really fight him off. He even threatens to simply force the pill down his throat if Sherlock refuses. The cabbie only tries manipulating him after the police have arrived outside, thanks to John noticing something was off.]]

** This episode does a great job of making you think [[spoiler:that the sinister, all-controlling gentleman who calls himself Sherlock's arch-enemy, and who Sherlock tells John is the most dangerous man he'll ever meet, is Moriarty. This false play culminates in this man noting that he and Sherlock are NotSoDifferent, which makes perfect sense when we learn soon after it's actually Sherlock's brother Mycroft.
