* NoBisexuals: Not explicit but there is a noticeable shift in the treatment of Nolan's sexuality between seasons 1 & 2 and 3 & 4. Although Nolan's bisexuality is never specifically retconned, in the show's latter two seasons he only engages in sexual relationships with men and his partnership and subsequent marriage to Louise is treated much like a [[TheBeard beard arrangement]]. This was likely the new showrunner's response to the [[TheScrappy overwhelmingly negative reception towards Nolan's only female love interest Padma]].

* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: The season 3 opening tease showed Emily shot aboard a ship and falling overboard. Even when the episode where it happened ended on a {{cliffhanger}} of whether she'd survive, there was no real question � there's no show without her. The promos for the next episode didn't bother to pretend there was a chance that Emily would die from her wounds.

* HamAndCheese: Compare Henry Czerny's relish-filled portrayal of Conrad to Madeleine Stowe, who often delivers her lines with a thick layer of "I do [i]not[/i] believe this shit that I am saying."

*** [[spoiler: His fate is revealed to have been even worse in Season 4. Instead of being assasinated by Conrad, David was instead kidnapped and held captive for 10 more years by arms dealing psychopath Malcolm Black. Upon learning of his daughter's apparent death he finally escapes and stays in hiding long enough for his name to be cleared. However he then has to contend with Victoria's manipulations, Malcolm's revenge and Conrad's mistress Natalie trying to frame him again. And after finally making it through all that he learns he has lymphoma. ''Yeah''.]]

!!YMMV tropes for the show



* VillainDecay: Victoria rapidly undergoes this in Season 4, mostly as a result of Conrad's role in the David Clarke frame-up finally being outed to the public. This leaves her penniless, publicly disgraced and estranged from her remaining family members, with her only attack being to try and manipulate [[spoiler: David when he shows up alive and infatuated with her.]] Despite her continuing animosity with Emily, she fails to pose any real threat to her and, once David learns the truth about his daughter's identity, has her role basically reduced to that of a bitter stepmother. Made even more egregious by the season's promotional campaign promising Victoria's grand "revenge" against Emily, which she only actually follows through with in the final four episodes.

!!YMMV tropes for the band

* ColbertBump: In one of the few non-shirtless photos of Stefan Burnett, more commonly known as MC Ride from Music/{{Death Grips}}, he can be seen repping Revenge's ''Infiltration.Downfall.Death'' album. [[http://forums.lastbullet.net/mydownloads/previews/preview_286_1449178397_36fc7c8e1a847805576c4da105cc82a7.jpg]]
* EpicRiff: "Blood of My Blood", "Filth Solution (Intolerance)", "Us and Them (High Power)", "Humanity Noosed", "Hate Nomad", "Death Heritage (Built Upon Sorrow)", "Genocide Conquest", "Shock Attrition (Control in Decline)", "Cleansing Siege (Take Them Down)", "Atrocity March"
* MusicToInvadePolandTo: More like music to besiege the gates of Heaven to.
* NightmareFuel: Uninitiated listeners might find Revenge's music to be completely terrifying, and rightly so. The breakdown in the middle of "Wolf Slave Protocol (Choose Your Side)" and the beginning guitar solo in "Death Heritage (Built Upon Sorrow)" are particular examples where the true musical horror of Revenge shines through. In an interview from when he was in Conqueror, James Read warned fans of melodic music to not waste their money on his band's album.
* SignatureSong: "Blood of My Blood" off ''Triumph.Genocide.Antichrist''

** After '''four seasons''' of near complete irrelevancy, Charlotte finally had something to do. [[spoiler: Her entire life crumbles, as does her family (two of whom die), all due to a meddlesome step-sister she only recently knew existed.]] What happens? Absolutely nothing!

* BondVillainStupidity: Emily leaving Victoria in the mental institution, which she easily can [[spoiler: (and does)]] escape from, rather than having her prosecuted for the very real [[spoiler: murder of Aiden.]] It's even more egregious when you remember that Emily's goal that entire season was faking a murder to put Victoria away with.
