  • Not So Different: The neo-Nazi most responsible for Isaac's murder ends up covered in graveyard mud, behaving very much like a soulless automaton.

  • Resurrected Romance: Isaac and Ariel.
  • Shout-Out: Ariel mentions how her family hails from Prague, the city famous for the Golem legend.
  • Widowed at the Wedding: Isaac and Ariel were already married, but he was killed before the wedding at the synagogue, so the trope somehow fits.
