Added DiffLines:

* SternTeacher: Verrocchio, Leo's master. (The way the apprentice system works, he's closer to a teacher than a BenevolentBoss, but has elements of both.) He's shown to genuinely care about his apprentices, but he'd appreciate it if they didn't spend their time building ridiculous devices when they're supposed to be learning to paint.

* BeneathNotice: In "Dogs of War", Tom discovers none of the apprentices are allowed in the workshop where the superweapon is being built. [[spoiler: Lisa, however, can easily get in by carrying a mop and bucket.]]



* DancePartyEnding: The final episode of SeasonTwo ends (more or less) with a huge street party being held to celebrate that Leo saved Florence.
-->'''Verrocchio''': I'm never going to hear the end of this...



* DeathEqualsRedemption: At the end of "The Fugitive" [[spoiler: Placidi, battered to death by a mob and abandoned by Piero, decides to tell Leo everything before he dies]].

* DeathEqualsRedemption: At the end of "The Fugitive" [[spoiler: Placidi, battered to death by a mob and abandoned by Piero, decides to tell Leo everything before he dies]]. As it turns out in "Dogs of War" [[spoiler: he's OnlyMostlyDead, and manages to explain it all to Lorenzo as well. And by the end he's made a full recovery.]]



** In "Dogs of War", when [[spoiler: Leo's superweapon fails to wipe out Leo and Mac, Leo stares at it and says "It didn't work!" An incredulous Mac asks "Are you ''disappointed''?]]



* HowWeGotHere: "The Dogs of War" begins with [[spoiler: Rocco having Piero arrested for treason]]. Then the action rewinds to the end of the previous episode.

They do the rewind thing again halfway through to explain how [[spoiler: Lorenzo knows his father's a villain]]. And ''again'' near the end to explain what Tom's been up to.



* ImprobableWeaponUse: In a frenetic swordfight in "The Dogs of War", Mac is armed with ... a pewter tankard. And doesn't do badly with it.



*ItWorksBetterWithBullets: In "Dogs of War", Piero [[spoiler: aims the superweapon's cannon at Leo, Mac and Rocco, presses the trigger, and nothing happens. At which point Tom casually wanders up carrying the flint (the Renaissance equivalent of removing the firing pin).]]



* TankGoodness: Leo's "superweapon": an armored cart with a cannon.

* EngineeredPublicConfession: In "The Dogs of War" [[spoiler: Leo gets Piero to admit to everything, unaware that Duke Rocco is hiding in the tank]].



* HaveYouToldAnyoneElse: In "The Mask of Death" [[spoiler: Leonardo tells the Medici family doctor that he suspects the Duke was poisoned, hoping for a post mortem. The doctor replies "And you've told no-one else of this? Good, keep it that way." And then, of course, we cut to him telling Piero "He'll find out I gave you the poison! We'll all be exposed!" Unfortunately for Dr Pentageli, Piero decides ''he's'' more disposable than Leo is.]]

Added DiffLines:

* NotSoDifferent: In "Dogs of War":
-->'''Piero''': You and I, Leonardo, we're thinkers. Men of the future.
-->'''Leo''': I am ''nothing'' like you!
-->'''Piero''': ''(looking towards Leo's superweapon)'' Aren't you?
* NotSoFastBucko: The EngineeredPublicConfession in "Dogs of War" takes place five minutes in, and the scene from the beginning of [[spoiler: Piero being arrested]] is a couple of minutes later. Obviously, it can't be that simple...


Added DiffLines:

* TheSadisticChoics: Piero gives Leo one in "The Dogs of War":
-->'''Piero''': Interesting MoralDilemma, isn't it? Let your friend die and you could stop me. Save thousands of lives. Obviously, [[TheNeedsOfTheMany it's the right thing to do]], but I don't think you've got the stomach for it.

*XanatosGambit: While Piero is the master of the BatmanGambit, "Dogs of War" reveals that even if that goes wrong, he's still got a plan.
-->'''Piero''': Maybe we're not so alike after all. You make plans. I make plans ''within'' plans.
