* ReverseWhodunnit: The theme of the second act, as the inspector arrives to unravel the events shown in the first act. [[spoiler:Subverted as no actual murder happened. In fact, the inspector is actually the supposed victim in disguise, putting his own plan in motion to get even.]]

* OnlyOnePlausibleSuspect: When Inspector Doppler turns up and announces that [[spoiler:Milo has been murdered]], Andrew is the only plausible suspect; since he and Milo are the only two significant characters up this point, and it obviously wasn't Milo, the rules of drama dictate that nobody could have done it if not Andrew. [[spoiler:Subverted: nobody ''did'' do it; it's all a bit of fakery as part of Milo's revenge.]]
