Added DiffLines:

* {{Blackmail}}: Sean uses the existence of Vicky's daughter to force her cooperation. Eventually subverted, as Henri points out Vicky is ''far'' too competent to let him genuinely blackmail her, so she must be doing it for another reason. Sean then realizes she's attracted to him.


Added DiffLines:

** Somewhat unusually for this trope, Sean is clearly disgusted with himself for doing it.

* PlayingAgainstType: Anyone who has seen Zeljko Ivanek (Blake Sterling) in anything else immediately identifies him as the villain...except he's actually a ReasonableAuthorityFigure.



* TookALevelInJerkass: The President, in response to constantly getting jerked around by Sophia and Thomas and losing control of the situation, is becoming increasingly short-fused. He was willing to risk a nuclear meltdown if it meant catching Thomas, and isn't even considering diplomatic options anymore. By contrast, Sterling seems to be mellowing out, and is more willing to consider working with Sophia.
** Actually, what's happening is more of a constant effort to BreakTheCutie (or BullyingTheDragon, if you remember that [[WhatAnIdiot the people involved are messing with the U.S. President)]], leading into a [[JustifiedTrope quite acceptable case]] of BewareTheNiceOnes.
* TooSoon:
** Jetliner SuicideAttack as a weapon in the United States complete with screaming passengers. Obviously NBC's is hoping that nine years was enough for this to just be a credible dramatic threat and not stomach-turning to most of the audience.
** The old warehouse collapsing in 1x6.
** The episode "Turnabout", in which the threat of a nuclear incident in Southern California is a major plot point, aired a few days after the massive Sendai earthquake in Japan that led to major incidents at several nuclear reactors. In a moment before the President gets updated on the situation, we see him in a meeting with a foreign dignitary... from Japan.



* WhatTheHellHero: Simon Lee to Sophia after [[spoiler: she destroyed the Washington Monument]]
** And similarly, Sterling to President Martinez after [[spoiler: blowing up two buses full of Sophia's people]].
* XMeetsY: It's been advertised as ''[[Series/TwentyFour 24]]'' meets ''Series/{{Lost}}'' and been referenced as ''TheXFiles'' meets ''TheWestWing''.

* ReverseMole: Simon Lee is really an alien. At first he's a straight example of this trope with Sophia's group having good intentions, [[spoiler:but after things go bad they become KnightTemplars and he ends up deserting them]].

* MagicalDatabase: Sean is able to access any information on Earth in record time, no matter who holds it, no matter how secret, no matter how protected, with his Macbook Pro and a flawless, extremely fast wireless Internet connection that apparently works from anywhere, including PlanesTrainsAndAutomobiles.
