* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: An assassin whose preferred weapon is a telescopic baton with AbsurdCuttingPower, gets undone by his own weapon after Liam kicks him, causing the baton to extend through the assassin. Also, happens to [[spoiler:Sandoval]] in the GrandFinale after [[spoiler:Rene]] kicks him off a catwalk.

* AbortedArc: More than one. For example, Maya's life in our reality, and Lili's half-Jaridian baby.

* AlternateReality: Liam and Augur end up on an alternate Earth where the Taelons are busy conquering humanity. Additionally, humans never built cities and remained in harmony with nature, which didn't stop them from building advanced weapons (it's not explained where they got the industry without cities). They find many duplicates of people they know, although some of them have different names (e.g. Alternate!Sandoval is called Jason).

* HalfHumanHybrid in Liam Kincaid [[spoiler: more properly Liam Sandoval-Beckett but no one calls him that, ever]]. He has [[ExtraParentConception three parents]], two human and one [[EnergyBeings Kimera]] and ends up with a kind of triple stranded DNA helix and a few special abilities. The entire manner of it is convoluted but the [[EnergyBeings Kimera]] race were extremely advanced and had a demonstrative skill in genetic manipulation.
to:
* HalfHumanHybrid GambitPileup: All the time in the first four seasons, since just about every Taelon seems to have their own (sometimes violently contradicting) agenda, and many of the humans have their own agendas and the skills and resources to pursue them. It's quite astonishing how thoroughly at cross purposes the Taelons can operate, given they have a form of shared consciousness and memory. * HalfHumanHybrid: Liam Kincaid [[spoiler: more properly Liam Sandoval-Beckett but no one calls him that, ever]].

* {{Expy}}: The mothership's look is a dead ringer for the underwater aliens' technology in TheAbyss.

* TwistEnding - The show wasn't afraid to [[RetCon reveal]] that characters two seasons old had secretly been plotting against what they seemed the whole time. The actual finale, however, is a relatively straightforward fight to stop Howlyn from regaining control of his starship and the hibernating army it contains.

Added DiffLines:
*** At least on episode attempts to HandWave this. A human who has "evolved" past the Taelons makes an off-handed comment implying that what's happening isn't actually "evolution" in the sense humans understand it, but the English Language lacks appropriate terminology.

Add trope: Child Of Two Worlds - Liam
Added DiffLines:
* ChildOfTwoWorlds: Liam mostly identifies as human, but his alien ancestry does seem to give him a greater rapport with the Taelons.
