* BettyAndVeronica: The Gardner brothers and the Beauchamp sisters themselves. It could be argued that both generations of Beauchamp sisters qualify.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Having even a tan skintone will not work out well for a character in this show.

* {{Immortality}}: It's unclear whether or not all witches are immortal or if Wendy and Joanna have been specifically cursed to be immortal. Their immortality certainly works differently. Joanna is [[NighInvulnerability near-impossible to kill]]. Wendy dies like anyone else, but [[ResurrectiveImmortality comes to life]] a few hours after she dies. Ingrid and Freya die like anyone would, but almost as soon as they do Joanna [[BornAgainImmortality gets pregnant]] with Ingrid and the cycle starts over.

* LanguageOfMagic: just speaking words in [[AltumVidetur Latin]] will make things happen if someone has magic powers. Old Norse is said to be the older language of magic, with all magic coming from [[spoiler: Asgard]], though how does that work with the "newer" magic in Latin is anyone's guess.



* ShirtlessScene: Freddie Prinze Jr. gets one in the fourth episode. Wendy spends a moment EatingTheEyeCandy before deciding that, no, she's not going to leave so soon.

* TarotTroubles: The witches lay the cards a couple of times. It's how they find out that a shapeshifter is out to kill Joanna and her daughters. Even shuffling the deck and trying it over dozens of times doesn't change the message of the cards.

Even shuffling being torn between the deck two brothers, of whom one - represented by "the trickster" - will be her destroyer and trying it over dozens of times doesn't change the message of other - the cards.Emperor - is her soulmate. Unfortunately, there is no "trickster" Tarot card, though going by the function, the Magician, the Fool, or possibly even the Devil would work. The two cards are also shown to have a clear meaning, one positive and one negative.

* NorseMythology: Joanna and Wendy apparently come from [[spoiler:Asgard]], and Freya's name is a blatant ShoutOut. Also, Mike's previous book's title is "The Aesir of Midgard," so something is definitely going on.

* DisappearedDad: Ingrid and Freya's father isn't mentioned until [=S01E08=], when it's stated he's been gone for ''over a century'', making this an extreme case. Due to their {{born again immortality}} Ingrid and Freya have never seen him before in their present lives, nor in most of their past ones going back centuries. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Ingrid is bitter with him over this, although Freya warms up more quickly. It's somewhat different because Joanna asked him to leave as well, and he's thus upset that she told his daughters he'd abandoned them.
