* ReplacementScrappy: Surprisingly averted after Maddy left the show. Although she is far and away the most popular sidekick, both Carla and Joey were generally accepted by audiences.

* ReplacementScrappy: Surprisingly averted after Maddy left the show. Although she is far and away the most popular sidekick, both Carla and Joey were generally accepted by audiences. [[TheScrappy Polly, on the other hand]], mocks Jonathan's fascinating and rare (former) career, gets rid of his duffle coat and thinks living in a windmill is childish...

* InformedAbility: Although certainly clever and brave, Joey is initially introduced as Jonathan's intellectual equal, described on a television show as "someone whose powers of deduction and truly phenomenal flair for solving seemingly impossibly puzzles are beyond cool." Yet apart from ascertaining that the Nightmare Room is inescapable and discovering a clue that Jonathan misses (one which she slightly misinterprets), she doesn't solve any part of the mystery, and eventually admits: "I'm out of my depth here."

* CompleteMonster: [[spoiler:Alan Kallarnak.]] Granted, the man had a motive: as a [[TheFundamentalist fundamentalist Christian]], he was furious that his ex-wife had an abortion. But what he does afterwards leads another character to claim that his "soul rightfully belongs in Hell". After discovering that his ex-wife had a child out of wedlock in her teenage years (one that she's befriended, but neglected to tell of his maternity), he approaches the now-grown son and convinces him to kill his own mother (without informing him that she ''is'' his mother; the son was actually in love with her and - being a bit mentally disturbed - couldn't understand why she didn't reciprocate). The son dutifully carries out the murder, and the woman dies reaching out for him. The scene in which she breaks down in front of her ex-husband, sobbing about how her own son wants to kill her, contains a moment in which the killer smiles to himself as he comes up with his plan, cementing his position as a CompleteMonster. [[spoiler:Upon learning this, neither Jonathan nor Carla are particularly inclined to turn his murderers over to the police once they determine who they are.]]

* AngstWhatAngst: In "The Grinning Man", Joey [[spoiler:comes face to face with her friend's corpse]], in a scene that has earned an impassioned entry under NightmareFuel on this very Wiki. By the next scene she has completely recovered her composure, and at the end of the episode is looking forward to writing it up in her blog.
