**However, this information came from [[spoiler: Al, who may have tampered with the evidence. If, for instance, Al knew that Tui's baby was his, he might have substituted his own DNA for Matt's, in which case the results would show a match for Tui's baby and no match for Johnno.]]

** When Robin first questions Matt about Tui's pregnancy, he boasts about how young he was when he first lost his virginity and jokes about Tui being "a slut like her dad". At the time, it comes across as macho insensitivity. [[spoiler:However the final revelations about Matt's abusive mother make one wonder if it was multi-generational and Matt was, in fact, abused by it as a child.]]

* {{Narm}}: Johnno and Robin stripping down naked to have sex in the middle of the woods, ''while they're in the middle of an investigation'', is pretty... random.

* HolyShitQuotient: The series is in no way plodding, but the tension is pretty level and slow-burning, ramping up only when [[spoiler:Jamie dies, and when Matt reveals he's Robin's father.]] And then comes the second half of the last episode. [[spoiler:Matt's the father of Tui's baby! Or is he? Tui and her friends go missing! Robin shoots Al! The barista training is nothing more than a front for a sex ring, led by Al!]]

* AssPull: After it's revealed that [[spoiler:Matt is Robin's father, it seems obvious that Johnno isn't going to be Matt's son or else the show will have to answer to some [[BrotherSisterIncest serious]] [[SurpriseIncest incest]] issues. Johnno ''is'' revealed to not be Matt's son,]] but it's at the end of the last episode with little foreshadowing besides a few lines and exists just to cover for the aforementioned reveal, which others might also consider an AssPull on its own.



** [[spoiler:Considering Al is the leader of a paedophile ring that uses date rape drugs, it is likely that Robyn was raped again off screen during her blackout in episode 4.]]

** A minor one; Robin assumes her mother doesn't like Johnno because he's related to the unstable Matt, and that's also why her mother's last request is for her to not see Johnno. [[spoiler:It ''is'' because she thinks he's related to Matt, but not because she worries that he's like his father or brothers; she knows that Robin is Matt's daughter and she's worried that she's watching her daughter commit incest.]]
* {{Squick}}: Robin and Johnno's sex scenes become this [[spoiler:after the revelation that Robin is Matt's daughter. She even tries to seduce him, calling him her brother, though a shocked Johnno leaves. They're not really related, but ''damn.'']]
