* OneSceneWonder: So far, the [[BigBad Faceless Man]] has appeared in person exactly two times, for one scene each. Both of these scenes were some of the most [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome]], [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]]-[[CrowningMomentOfFunny funny]] and plot-relevant scenes in the entire series.

Added DiffLines:

** ''[[UsefulNotes/BritishNewspapers The Daily Mail]]'' also gets the piss taken out of it on a bookly basis, usually by having Peter snark about how their current case is going to be presented by ''The Mail'' as being the fault of immigrants/muslims/irish travellers/violent youth culture/etc.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: The {{Reveal}} that Molly is [[spoiler: simply a kind of fae]] seems kind of disappointing after four books full of hints and the NightmareFuel that was the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Pale Lady]].

* RewatchBonus: For the first novel, the Bonus is [[spoiler: spotting the occasions when Pyke/Punch slips up and voices an un-Lesley-like remark, or when she's told about police plans thus giving the revenant a chance to sabotage or circumvent them.]] For book three, it's [[spoiler: watching Peter's interactions with Leslie, and knowing that the acceptance he shows her is probably contributing to her ''not'' letting the Faceless Man kill him when he's tased and helpless at the end of book 4.]]

** [[FridgeLogic This also raises the question]] of why none of the Rivers told Peter what he was up against in [[spoiler: ''Foxglove Summer'' despite at least Father Thames' boys obviously knowing what Pale Ladies are.
* {{Wangst}}: Yes, Peter, [[spoiler: Leslie betrayed you]]. No, Peter, you do not have to mention that [[spoiler: she tasered you in the back of the neck]] every few paragraphs.

* {{Padding}}:''Foxglove Summer'' and, to a lesser extent, ''Whispers Under Ground''. They contribute next to nothing to the overall plot, except for the scenes in ''Whispers Under Ground'' concerning [[spoiler: Woodville-Gentle]]. Especially {{egregious}} in the case of ''Foxglove Summer'', which came right after a huge CliffHanger.
