* FireForgedFriends: Robin and Miranda, after a lot of awkwardness and bickering.



**The scenes with the sex workers in Season 2 have a similar effect.



** In Season 2, Miranda Hilmarson is practically Mood Whiplash personified, as her {{Cloudcuckoolander}} behavior often goes from funny to creepy to sad and back again in the space of a single scene.

*HateSink: Puss [[spoiler: actually isn't responsible for Cinnamon's death]], but he's such an arrogant {{Troll}} and his treatment of Mary is so despicable that he comes off as the most villainous character introduced in the second season.

* FanDisservice: There's quite a lot of nudity but the clinical style and the fact that most of the actors aren't stereotypically hot means that it isn't particularly erotic - with some obvious exceptions.
* FanService: Robin has quite a few lingerie and nude scenes. On the flipside, Johnno is basically a walking fanservice machine.

exceptions. This trend continues in Season 2, where much of the nudity involves exploited sex workers and their clients.
* FanService: Robin has quite a few lingerie and nude scenes. On the flipside, Johnno is basically a walking fanservice machine. Pyke in Season 2 is less of a {{Hunk}} and mostly keeps his clothes on, but one scene quite blatantly showcases his none-too-shabby naked behind.


Added DiffLines:

** As of Season 2 [[spoiler: Robin has left Johnno, after he got arrested for drug possession while in the company of another woman, on their wedding day.]]
