* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The theme song, for the visuals almost as much as the music. Thank you, network, for keeping BearMcCreary as the composer.

* FanonDiscontinuity: Lets just say that the last two episodes are divisive for ''Caprica'' watchers who kept on with the franchise even after BSG's controversial ending.
* GameBreaker: Being a "deadwalker" in New Cap City gives you [[{{Immortality}} immortality]] and RealityWarper powers.

* * SpiritualLicensee: Strangely enough, to ''Series/{{Continuum}}'' of all things. While at first glance, this may be chalked up to the many, MANY actors who crossover with both it and its parent series, there are simply too many similarities to be entirely coincidental. Let's count:

Daniel Greystone, who has shown bouts of anger scarcely before, proceeds to verbally abuse the avatar (who genuinely doesn't understand why he's doing any of this) and when asked what he wants, he grabs her by the throat, throws her onto the couch, screaming: "I want you to be REAL! I want you to be HER! My real wife would never forgive me like that - she would call me on all my crap, and walk straight out that door, and probably never come back!"]] Why this is such a hard moment is because [[spoiler: Daniel isn't only confessing what he did, he's also baring, essentially, that he ''knows'' Amanda is right in not coming back home.]]

* TheWoobie: Both Zoe-A and Tamara-A are this to varying extents, though in the latter case it's particularly so. Zoe's situation in part seems to be partially her own doing, whereas Tamara is completely obvlivious - at least at first. As of the end of ''There Is Another Sky'', Tamara has [[spoiler:upgraded into an ActionGirl. Still pretty woobie-ish though.]]

** Characters
*** A dark haired, aloof ActionGirl with superpowers and a very skewed sense of morality, exploring an alien environment. Are we talking about Kira Cameron or Zoey Graystone?
*** A ByTheBookCop who slowly jumps off the slippery slope of radicalism in his failing attempts to deal with a fanatical terrorist organization, and played by Brian Markinson. Jordan Durham or Jack Dillon?
*** Richard Harmon as angsty teenager who slowly TookALevelInBadass.
*** Wiliam B. Davis as a high ranking political figure in a dystopian sci-fi show?
** Themes
*** AIIsACrapshoot, CyberneticsEatYourSoul, ProtagonistCenteredMorality, AnyoneCanDie, hefty doses of GreyAndGrayMorality, many a CorruptCorporateExecutive, the list goes on...

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Tamara Adama, in spite of only featuring prominently in two episodes (though her father's mourning for her and his wife is a long-running theme), is one of the most popular characters in the series, almost solely thanks to her part in "There Is Another Sky," where she takes control of New Cap City single-handedly.

** Clarice gets another one in ''Blowback'', shared by Agent Durham: The murder of [[spoiler: Mar-Beth]]. Agent Durham because he framed [[spoiler: Mar-Beth]] as a GDD mole and Clarice for the actual killing. To her credit, Clarice seems genuinely conflicted by the act but come on...

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Very brief but in ''The Imperfections of Memory'', Joseph and Emmanuelle walk by a graffiti-covered wall. The camera lingers and eventually zooms to a specific graffiti: The image of a man that [[EpilepticTrees somewhat resembles]] [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Gaius Baltar]]. Next to the image is written "This is not me, It's just my body vehicle". It obviously has a deeper meaning and may even be some {{Foreshadowing}} but it is never referred to and has no weight to the rest of the episode or the following episodes.

* UncannyValley: The Cylons don't look even remotely human, but they have very human reactions and gestures. Examples include the first Cylon looking to Daniel for permission to finish off his opponent during the first demonstration, the Cylon ostentatiously checking his clip to see if there are any more bullets, and [[spoilers: the combat maneuvers in the Pyramid stadium]].

* LesYay: Between Amanda and Clarice. Commented on.
** Taken further in "Unvanquished" when it's revealed that [[spoiler:they're secretly living together]].
** And then in "Here Be Dragons", Clarice actually says, "I loved you".
** Seems to be present in some scenes between Clarice and Lacy.

* NightmareFuel:
** Tamara Adams' Avatar [[spoiler:can't hear the beat of her own heart.]]
** Daniel's [[spoiler:torture of the Zoe-Cylon in "Ghost in the Machine." The things he does and says are disturbing enough on their own, but when you consider that it's his daughter he's tormenting, and abusing his knowledge of her deepest fears to do so, it hits a whole new level. Also distressing is the speed Daniel goes from "trying to talk rationally" to "borderline MindRape."]]
** "Things we Lock Away". [[spoiler:Vergis forces Daniel to kill him after the latter proposes an alliance. Both actors do a really good job in the scene; remember that this is, as far as we know, Daniel's first direct kill, ever.]]
*** This instance goes double for Daniel, especially since [[spoiler: he had been trying to make the case for Vergis and him teaming up to take down the Guattrau, (in his words) "ending the bloodshed," and simultaneously saving Vergis' life. What drives this moment even ''further'' is that Vergis appears to accept his proposal. He tells Daniel to swear on his grandfather's knife - relaxed, Daniel puts a hand on the hilt, thinking that it worked, which is when Vergis grabs Daniel's wrist and plunges the knife into his chest.]] Sheesh.
