* JerkassWoobie: Kellog seems to be a classic ConMan, ManipulativeBastard and PunchClockVillain abusing time travel for his own gains. [[spoiler:Then he had to watch the woman he thought/might be was his grandmother die in his arms due to his former comrades trying to blackmail him and his own back story implies he only joined up with Liber8 after he was wrongfully arrested because he stayed with his dying sister (the real Liber8 member at the time) in her last moments when the arresting officers fired upon them]] it is really hard to not feel bad for the guy. [[spoiler:And he gets to witness the Charlie Foxtrot that the Liber8 inspired timeline becomes, as he becomes one of the last holdouts after a series of devastating inter-corporate civil wars.]]

* ParanoiaFuel: Quite a bit of what Liber8 is fighting against is disturbingly plausible. And some of it has ''already happened''. Kagame explaining how the banks dodged responsibility for the 2010 crash is a good example.

* SpiritualLicensee: Strangely enough, to ''Series/{{Caprica}}'' 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:
** 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 ByTheBooksCop 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
*** A.I.IsACrapshoot, CyberneticsEatYourSoul, ProtagonistCenteredMorality, AnyoneCanDie, hefty doses of GreyAndGrayMorality, many a CorruptCorporateExecutive, the list goes on...

** For crashers: First, anyone could be a Continuum plant, ''especially'' a future or past you. Second, if you know both the Continuum side of the story and the Narcissist side, the possibility occurs that ''any time you crash out of the main universe'', you're just being lied to by the Inheritors.

* DyeingForYourArt: Rachel Nichols, who plays the brunette Kiera, is a natural blonde.



* MoralEventHorizon: Even though the entire season was building up to [[spoiler:Past!Alec]] being evil, it could still have been argued that he was at least well-intentioned. Then comes the season finale, where he [[spoiler:taunts Future!Alec by claiming that he will do everything in his power to keep Future!Alec from being happy with Emily, even if that means killing her, and uses his dying breath to rub Kiera's lost family in her face. Even before that, he tries manipulating her by mentioning her lost family]].

* {{Anvilicious}}: Anyone starting to watch this series should be prepared for some fairly {{Anvilicious}} social commentary about corporations whose methods represent the CorruptCorporateExecutive, what it means to be a WellIntentionedExtremist, being a DefectorFromDecadence, as well as PoliceBrutality and SinisterSurveillance.
** Seriously, the EvilCorp is called [=SadTech=]. Seriously? (Though it is meant to be a bridge with the surname of Alec Sadler, who owns the company.)
