* FridgeBrilliance: The plot point of Annie's cardiomyopathy makes a good metaphor for her post-Hong Kong state of mind. She's both heartbroken and in the process of becoming [[TheStoic heartless]].

* Foreshadowing: Probably unintentional, but amusing in light of Season 4. In "Walter's Walk", Auggie and Annie have a discussion about what Annie should do in the event she becomes guardian of her nieces:

** Season 4 seems to be subverting this for Annie. [[spoiler:Many of her gambits against [[BigBad Henry Wilcox]] only partially succeed at best, and at worst blow up in her face, sometimes literally.]]

-->'''Annie:''' My sister wants to make me her kids' guardian. What's the CIA policy on that?
-->'''Auggie:''' Don't tell your family you're on a mission in Colombia.

* CannotSpitItOut: Annie wanting to read-in her sister, but only for a short while.
** [[spoiler: Annie telling Auggie that she likes him.]]



* IdiotBall: Most of Annie's decisions in "Rock and Roll Suicide". The worst being [[spoiler: giving Simons sister her passport, which was her only ticket out of the country.]] Subverted in the end when [[spoiler: she blackmails her interrogator into letting releasing them.]]

* AndTheFandomRejoiced: Annie and Auggie's kiss in season 3.
* {{Anti Climax Boss}}: [[spoiler: The final faceoff between Annie and Lena. Especially after having a whole episode building up to that one moment.]]

*** That possible double subversion is given credence as even though the target gets away and the agency gets literally nothing, Joan suggests Annie might get a medal for simply 'getting closer than anyone else'. A fangirl in the CIA even tells Annie she admires her. Though to be fair [[spoiler: Lena was also setting Annie up, so some of the good attention might have been played up intentionally and even elaborated.]]
**** Some episodes shortly there after suggest that some sort of MythArc is forming/has formed around Annie being that multiple agencies are interested in getting close to her (including her own). So where we're at on subverting the subversion for MarySue-ism keeps getting spun around as, on some level, the show acknowledges that she's getting special treatment from at least some of her colleagues.

* HollywoodHomely: The embassy representative that Annie must get to turn her remarks that no one pays her any attention because she isn't good looking. Considering a few scenes prior she's wearing (quite well) a cocktail dress that shows off quite a bit, it's... not a convincing complaint.
