* AwesomeMoments:
** Demetri's BigDamnHeroes rescue of [[spoiler:Celia, by ramming that guy's car.]]
** Stanford exhibits some [[MagnificentBastard Magnificent Bastardry]] by successfully blackmailing the ''President of the United States.''



* FunnyMoments: "I know what a bong is."
** "I'll make you gayer."
** The scene where Stanford tells Mark ''exactly'' what was going on in his flash forward. Both Courtney B. Vance and Joseph Fiennes look like they could barely get through the scene without laughing.

*** One-upped in 1x19, when Simon apologizes to Lloyd for keeping him in the dark re: his sister's kidnapping, and goes on to say he's the only friend Simon's got. Lloyd responds with what looks suspiciously like reluctant fondness and takes him out for a drink.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic - The New York Times review of the pilot included a list of historical events tied to the flash forward date of April 29, 2010, and suggesting speculation over the date's significance would be more fuel for EpilepticTrees. In actuality, it's just the 50th birthday of Robert J. Sawyer, author of the ''Flash Forward'' novel, which coincidentally falls close to the airing of the first season finale.

** Arguably, Simon.



** Lloyd and Mark, especially during "Blowback." This may be FoeYay, however.



** The whole concept arguably counts. Just imagine being the patient who died during the blackout because his doctors were unconscious. Or one of the people who was in the bus that drove into the lake or the planes that crashed. Just such a random, pointless and helpless way to die. Just try to imagine the mind-bogglingly high number of people just driving in cars at the moment the Blackout strikes - all around the world! Or for that matter, all the people who are swimming, climbing...

* FridgeLogic: In "Queen Sacrifice," it's revealed that [[spoiler: Dyson Frost has had many, many flash forwards and knows all sorts of detailed stuff about the future, and particularly about the Mosaic investigation. If so, why does there need to be a mole inside Mosaic at all, much less two of them?]]
** [[spoiler: Near the end of the episode, Frost contacts Mark and informs him that he can now meet up with him and talk more freely seeing as the "mole problem" has been taken care of. It appears that the moles aren't his.]]
** It's been shown that the Flash Forwards aren't certain, only possibilities. Things might play out one way or another, and he needs to know which.
** Plus, your Flash Forward is only about what you will be doing at time X; you can't see or acquire knowledge about anything or anyplace you won't be or don't have access to.
** That kangaroo is ''still'' running around in the series finale! How the hell did no-one do anything about that kangaroo in six months?
*** Well, during Hurricane Andrew, much of Miami Metro Zoo was destroyed and lots of animals escaped. Some, including a ''giraffe'' were never recovered. Dead or alive. If you can lose something as big and prominent as a giraffe, a kangaroo is child's play.

* DesignatedHero: Mark is shaping up to be this way.
** It's looking more to be DecoyProtagonist, really: [[spoiler:Lloyd Simcoe]] seems to be a much better candidate for hero.
*** The DesignatedHero thing is actually {{Lampshaded}} in a conversation with Mark's federally mandated therapist.

** ...and what if a flashforward of someone who ''died'' in the blackout turns out to be important?
*** [[MindScrew But then they wouldn't have had Flash Forwards because they were already dead in 6 months because...you know...they just died and thus they couldn't have been important]].
