- Like You Would Really Do It: Jane is dying in the prologue. The credibility of the threat is left up to the level of cynicism of the reader. She lives.
- Nightmare Fuel: Bits of it here and there. Some special mentions:
- Lanalee telling David to go take a bath... and not telling him he could get out again.
- The entire scene where Owen shoots himself to explain to Jane that he's already dead.
- Jane cutting off Ally/Lanalee's toes.
- The Woobie: Ally.
