These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Corporate Congress Lackey: We call loyal citizens patriots.note Depending on what other TV shows you watch, the term carries some interesting connotations.
Asshole Victim: Agent Gardiner could qualify, although this depends on whether one considers him either a loyal CSIS Agent doing his job to investigate a mysterious woman whose story doesn't hold up, or simply an Inspector Javert deliberately seeking ways to antagonize and implicate Kiera for any crime whatsoever.
The Chris Carter Effect: As the second season has progressed and more characters are introduced or revealed to have their own agenda, it's 50/50 whether week to week things are being thrown at the wall and seeing what sticks or if there's a master plan and the series is falling into this or Gambit Pileup.
Jerkass Woobie: Kellog seems to be a classic Con Man, Manipulative Bastard and Punch Clock Villain abusing time travel for his own gains. Then he had to watch the woman he thought/might be was his grandmother die in his arms due to his former comrades trying to blackmail him and his own back story implies he only joined up with Liber8 after he was wrongfully arrested because he stayed with his dying sister (the real Liber8 member at the time) in her last moments when the arresting officers fired upon them it is really hard to not feel bad for the guy. And he gets to witness the Charlie Foxtrot that the Liber8 inspired timeline becomes, as he becomes one of the last holdouts after a series of devastating inter-corporate civil wars.
Foe Yay / Les Yay / Bi the Way: Garza for Kiera in a kind of weird one-sided way. Along the way she also throws a smooch at Fonnegra. Then again, she likes trolling Kiera, who seems a bit straitlaced in the realm of sex.
Moral Event Horizon: Even though the entire season was building up to Past!Alec being evil, it could still have been argued that he was at least well-intentioned. Then comes the season finale, where he taunts Future!Alec by claiming that he will do everything in his power to keep Future!Alec from being happy with Emily, even if that means killing her, and uses his dying breath to rub Kiera's lost family in her face. Even before that, he tries manipulating her by mentioning her lost family.
Paranoia Fuel: Quite a bit of what Liber8 is fighting against is disturbingly plausible. And some of it has already happened. Kagame explaining how the banks dodged responsibility for the 2010 crash is a good example.
