* BuryingASubstitute: At the beginning of the series, about 2% of the world's population just suddenly vanishes, with no apparent cause and NoBodyLeftBehind. After a little while a company comes around that will build expensive, lifelike dolls that look like the deceased for a mock burial.

* AbsenteeActor:
** Season two's "Off Ramp" is the first one in which Christopher Eccleston and Carrie Coon don't take part, while Justin Theroux only appears in footage from the season one finale (they're the only ones to have been in every episode up to that point).
** "Ten Thirteen" is the first one where Theroux doesn't appear at all.
** In "International Assassin," Theroux, Ann Dowd and Jovan Adepo are the only regulars to appear.
** The extent of this trope on the series is summed up by Creator/LivTyler, who's listed as a regular - she appears in seven season one episodes, but only three episodes of season two (and one of them is a cameo).

Added DiffLines:

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: In "Lens", Erika gets reprimanded by Nora for associating her actions with the disappearance of her daughter. In turn, Erika asks about Nora's kids, and whether they died or departed. Her follow-up is enough to cause Nora to break down in tears.
-->'''Erika''': What were the last words they said to you, to the best of your recollection?

** Near the start of the series, a man shoots a dog out of nowhere. [[spoiler:{{Subverted}} at the end of the episode where he appears again when a pack of wild dogs mauls a deer, telling Garvey "they're not our dogs" before starting to shoot them.]]

** No one knows why people were disappeared, so no one knows whether it has a scientific or supernatural/religious explanation (the world's scientists cannot come up with any). And WordOfGod has it that the series is ''never'' going to tell you what happened - it's telling that the song over the season two opening titles is Iris [=DeMent=]'s "Let The Mystery Be."

* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Because Matt stopped to help a member of the GR victim of agression, he ended up losing his church [[spoiler: to the very GR]]

* SwissCheeseSecurity: At the conference Nora goes to, her name badge is taken by someone else, apparently without having to offer so much as an ID to get it. The thief is then able to break a bar mirror, somehow avoid getting immediately caught so the real Nora is blamed, and then join the conference posing as Nora without security ever noticing. Hotel security is also thoroughly unhelpful, kicking Nora out immediately even though she clearly outlines how someone stole her badge and could easily impersonate her. They do eventually check her story and realize their mistake, and to make up for it by comping all her hotel expenses.
