* SecretRelationship: the same one as in the original ([[spoiler:Frank Churchill and Jane Fairfax]]). The {{Race Lift}}s mentioned above result in an incidental TokenMinorityCouple.



* SkewedPriorities: At the base level, Emma is not an example. She wants to make others happy and happens to focus on their personal life, she's self-reliant and ambitious and will not give up on her plans. It just happens that she has a terrible superiority complex and is certain that manipulating others into accepting a ''stylish'' life, maybe sacrificing independance and future chances at happiness because ''this will look adorable''.

** Episode 23, "Moment of Triumph". The first intimations are dropped that Match #21 is not destined to be, complete with amusing party shenanigans, a photo booth and Alex giving a couple of hilarious {{Aside Glance}}s at the camera. But in TheStinger we see... Emma, tears unshed, in clear confusion about everything. It's the first genuine moment of CharacterDevelopment for her, and it raises the stakes of the show: all the miniscule flaws that trouble the foundations of Emma-land are not going to stay buried for long...

* BothSidesHaveAPoint: In Episode 30, after Emma's plan to reroute her sister's family vacation begins to go awry, they get into a pretty intense debate.
-->'''IZZY:''' I did exactly what he does to me. That's called being a hypocrite.\\
'''EMMA:''' No, that's called fighting fire with fire, and sometimes that's the only way to win![[note]]She's speaking of combating the character listed in the entry for AdaptationalVillainy here, so her motive has the audience's sympathy, even if her method doesn't.[[/note]]\\
'''IZZY:''' No. I don't want to win. I don't want to ''fight'', at all. Emma, if there is a winner, then there is a loser. And when you have winners and losers in a marriage, ''[[KillEmAll everyone loses]].''



-->'''Emma''': ...Don't say it.
-->'''Alex''': I didn't say ''anything''.

* JerkAssHasAPoint: James Elton [[spoiler: when he rejects Harriet because they run in different circles. He didn't have to be so harsh, but there's no way she'd fit with his political lifestyle.]]

to:

* JerkAssHasAPoint: James Elton [[spoiler: when he rejects Harriet because they run in different circles. He didn't circles]]. What he says is true, if quite harsh.
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Emma sails through life on dreams and blithe confidence, and can come across as this trope -- particularly when she's wrong. Elton calls her on it when asking if he and his proposed match, [[spoiler:Harriet]], ''actually''
have to be so harsh, but there's no way she'd fit with his political lifestyle.]] any real chemistry.


Added DiffLines:

* ObliviousToLove: despite being a ''professional matchmaker'', Emma [[FailedASpotCheck Fails A Spot Check]] when it comes to detecting [[spoiler:Senator Elton's feelings for her]]. It also takes a bit of a bombshell before she notices her own feelings for [[spoiler:Mr. Knightley]].

* [[BigBrotherInstinct Big Sibling Instinct]]: Emma and Alex towards Harriet. Of course, since they are foils, they go radically differently about it. Emma is very condescending and manipulative towards her, and starts a PygmalionPlot because she's certain that this is the best for her. She doesn't respect Harriet's choices. Alex thinks Harriet is fine this way. He never tries to change her and seems to just have trouble dealing with her Moe-ness tendancies.

* UptownGirl: Emma's friend Annie is marrying into the Westons, a sprawling family of old money, and this is part of what causes her cold feet. Of course, since they get married in the first chapter of the book, the wedding being back on is a bit of a ForegoneConclusion.
