* AxCrazy: Jonathan is a psychopathic murderer who travels the world only a few steps ahead of the police. He'll kill you for any reason, or no reason, but especially if you tell him he [[BerserkButton looks like Boris Karloff]].

Added DiffLines:

* KnightOfCerebus: Jonathan's appearance in the story, makes it a take a turn to nightmareville, as he is both insanely cruel and sadistic and makes the viewers take him seriously, unlike the cute and naively murderous aunts.

* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Dr. Einstein's effort to get Mortimer the hell out of the house and spare him a grisly fate seems genuine. He's very sweet to Teddy and won't abide killing him when Jonathan threatens it, and when Jonathan tries to kill Officer O'Hara, the Doctor knocks him out before he can. He's also very courteous to Abby and Martha. He's most probably only hanging around Jonathan because of what Jonathan would do if he tried to leave.

Then his ''other'' older brother Jonathan brother, Jonathan, returns after a long exile and some plastic surgery... and things get truly dangerous.



'''Jonathan''': Well, we'll see about that. All I need is ''one more''. And I've got a pretty good idea [[CainAndAbel who that's going to be]]!

* ChekhovsGun: When Mortimer and Aunt Abby take a moment to look at a picture of Jonathan, you know he's going to figure in the story eventually.
