*** It might also be a SubvetedTrope. Fiona only notes that she can tell one of the silver bullets has been blessed, it doesn't sear her skin or anything. It's possible she's only used a form of psychometry or divination to tell where a mundane object has been. There's definitive evidence that these witches are weak to silver, only that the witch hunters think they are.

** Delphine has a party before her curse, engaging in traditional Halloween games like the Withered Corpse. A guest expresses disdain for it, saying the "witch's eyes" he's feeling are just peeled grapes. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin He's wrong.]]

Added DiffLines:
* SurpriseCreepy: Delphine's Halloween party before her curse, where she plays the traditional game of Withered Corpse ("These are the witch's eyes."). Even in her time, it was a predictable game, so it's a surprise when she's not pretending.

The "glowing radiant health" rule had already been established when Fiona's health was failing, and Madison was discovered to have a heart murmur.]]
