* StraightGay: Leatherby. He's gay and is shown on-screen indulging himself, but he doesn't act stereotypically camp or feminine. Best way of explaining it is that Leatherby treats any man who's caught his fancy the same way a straight man would treat a woman.

* DepravedHomosexual: Leatherby is a real piece of work. Psychotic, sadistic, tortures his Hezbollah boyfriend [[GreenEyedMonster on a mere suspicion of infidelity]] and [[MurderTheHypotenuse murders the guy he suspects him of cheating with]], all within a few minutes after [[{{Hypocrite}} not-at-all-subtly hitting on Stonebridge right in front of him]]. Afterwards, Leatherby is irritated that a simple "sorry" doesn't make it up to him. Between the violent abuse from a guy who will clearly kill him if he tries to leave, and the blackmail from Dalton threatening to out him as a homosexual to his Islamic family, it's hard not to feel at least a little sorry for the boyfriend.

* AbortedArc: The first series ended with Porter wrongly labeled a terrorist and on the run. This series opens with Porter still a part of Section 20 with no explanation as to what happened in the interim. This aborted arc is also attributed to RealLifeWritesThePlot when actor Richard Armitage had already signed on to portray Thorin Oakenshield for ''TheHobbit'' by the time Project Dawn was announced.
