* MoralMyopia: Used twice in "Forgive Us Our Tresspasses." First, in 1746, Duncan, still reeling after the Scottish defeat at the Battle of Culdoon, discovers the Earl of Rosemont has sent his troops to crush villages in order to put down any more rebellion. A furious Duncan goes to the Earl's home and grabs his son.
-->'''Earl''': Please, don't hurt my son!
-->'''Duncan''': That is what a thousand Scottish mothers cried out before your soldiers murdered their children.
** Two hundred years later, the Earl's friend, Immortal Steven Keane, comes looking for payback on Duncan. Duncan realizes that Keane is doing pretty much the same thing Duncan has done several times, settling a score from long ago and they're not that different.

* {{Squick}}: At one point, to escape the titular characters of "Mountain Men" who have him at gunpoint, Duncan decides to leap off of a high cliff. The men assume that he's dead until a conversation their leader has with Tessa asserts otherwise. We then see Duncan recovering at the bottom of the ravine, with his bones gradually (and audibly) snapping back into place as his HealingFactor kicks in.
