* OutsideContextVillain: Barnabas. Before he shows up, the only other paranormal thing in town is Josette, whom every other character believes is a figment of David's imagination. Throughout all the investigation of the mysterious puncture wounds that show up on the necks of Loomis, Maggie, and assorted cattle, no one so much as utters the word vampire, even in jest, as though they don't know what one is.

The show was also notable for having storylines taking place in different time periods and parallel worlds, allowing the same actors to play [[IdenticalGrandson identical relatives]] or [[HeyItsThatGuy lookalikes]].

* ScarpiaUltimatum: Levelled against Barnabas by (who else) Angelique. She actually uses this twice: once she conditions for being his wife if she saves his sister (whose pains Angelique caused for exactly this purpose), and once they are married, she threatens Josette's life to keep Barnabas acting as a "faithful husband". When he tries to remove Josette from danger, the threat is simply expanded to his family.
* SecurityCling: Done wordlessly by Daphne and the possessed David and Hallie, when Gerard [[spoiler:who is really Judah Zachery]], kills them.

** Plus, the ''very first thing'' the show ever aired: the ABC announcer saying in an irritated tone, "Okay, I'm here. What do you want me to do?" (''pause'') "I can't see the slate!" He then proceeds to read the episode number as usual.
