* AngstWhatAngst: Allison doesn't seem all that broken up about all her friends being killed.
* CrossesTheLineTwice: Yep.
* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Chad]] crosses it when he [[spoiler:kidnaps Allison and straps her to a ConveyorBeltODoom.]]

** Allison has difficulty parsing the gravity of the situation around her. [[spoiler: Then again, she might just be in shock.]]
* TheWoobie: Dale.
