** The rather horrific statements of racism, classism, and moral/national superiority made by the Nazi commandant in "The Butcher" (who has posed as a radio talk show host), and the way he has so many callers enthusiastically agreeing with his demands for deportation, ethnic cleansing/genocide, and restoring America to greatness, are...extremely similar to a certain Presidential candidate and his supporters. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment Let's leave it at that]].

** Also, the death of Ryan's father in his son's place, and Mrs. Kent becoming the seventh victim to heal her baby with the cursed cradle. Becomes TearsOfJoy when we see the baby lived and will be raised by the babysitter who loved her.

* KickTheSonOfABitch: At the beginning of "The Voodoo Mambo", the estate handler and the realtor seem just a bit too smug at kicking out the VillainOfTheWeek from the home of his late father.

** The doctors mocking White Cloud for his Native American heritage in "The Shaman's Apprentice" most definitely seem to be receiving some well-deserved karma when he kills them to cure terminal patients. The chief surgeon coming to report to him that he has told the medical board to revoke his license is even more of an AssholeVictim, to the point that Micki actually thinks they should let White Cloud kill him if it will save her ill friend; her friend being left instead to face the definite likelihood of death in a couple months actually seems crueler by comparison, to the point of seeming like {{Black and Gray|Morality}} or even GrayAndGreyMorality.

** "Mesmer's Bauble", wherein the pop star the episode revolves around dies by being melted into the villain, is hard enough to watch after learning her actress, the real-life singer Vanity, nearly died from renal failure due to drug overdosing and thus dropped out of show business. (In the episode her character loses her manager and lover, and nearly breaks down saying she can't go on...) It gets worse learning she died in 2016, right before her partner and discoverer, Prince, died as well (eerily, at the same age). To cap it off, her character also sings a cover of "Nature Boy" in the episode--a song quite fitting for a story about a fan with unrequited love, but which was also used in ''Film/MoulinRouge'', wherein the singer character also died onstage.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Two undeniable ones for Micki occur in "Dr. Jack" where she electrocutes the villain with a defibrillator and "Bedazzled" where she uses a mirror to reflect the burning light of the lantern back at its owner. She's overall clever and resourceful throughout the latter unusual HostageSituation episode, whether in feigning ignorance, stalling for time while looking for the entrance to the vault (twice!), lying in wait to hit the villain over the head as soon as he opened the vault again, arranging to shock the villain by wrapping exposed lamp wires around the lantern, and having Richie throw it over the railing to make the villain fall.

** Ryan's would have to be: using the jumper cables to ground the villain's charge in "The Electrocutioner" so he electrocuted himself through the radiator pipes; knocking Reverend Josiah out the window by letting go of the Quilt of Hathor; tricking the villain of "Tails I Live, Heads You Die" into [[spoiler:bringing Micki BackFromTheDead]]; getting the cursed pocket watch away from Reatha [[JustInTime right as the clock reached one]]; and strangling the werewolf with silver-nitrate-coated movie film.
** As for Jack: tricking Lady Di out of the cup in "A Cup of Time"; going apeshit on the villain of "Brain Drain" after he [[spoiler:used the trephanator on his OldFlame]]; refusing Uncle Lewis's [[TheFinalTemptation Final Temptation]] in "Bottle of Dreams" so as to save Micki and Ryan; and setting up a small weapons arsenal to use against "The Butcher", then taking him out with his own barbed wire after removing the Thule Amulet (after he had taken out all of Jack's BandOfBrothers).
