* AwesomeMusic: The atmospheric, suitably creepy, title theme music.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome:
** Two undeniable ones for Micki occur in "Dr. Jack" where she electrocutes the villain with a defibrillator and "Bedazzled" where she uses a mirror to reflect the burning light of the lantern back at its owner. She's overall clever and resourceful throughout the latter unusual HostageSituation episode, whether in feigning ignorance, stalling for time while looking for the entrance to the vault (twice!), lying in wait to hit the villain over the head as soon as he opened the vault again, arranging to shock the villain by wrapping exposed lamp wires around the lantern, and having Richie throw it over the railing to make the villain fall.
** Ryan's would have to be: using the jumper cables to ground the villain's charge in "The Electrocutioner" so he electrocuted himself through the radiator pipes; knocking Reverend Josiah out the window by letting go of the Quilt of Hathor; tricking the villain of "Tails I Live, Heads You Die" into [[spoiler:bringing Micki BackFromTheDead]]; getting the cursed pocket watch away from Reatha [[JustInTime right as the clock reached one]]; and strangling the werewolf with silver-nitrate-coated movie film.
** As for Jack: tricking Lady Di out of the cup in "A Cup of Time"; going apeshit on the villain of "Brain Drain" after he [[spoiler:used the trephanator on his OldFlame]]; refusing Uncle Lewis's [[TheFinalTemptation Final Temptation]] in "Bottle of Dreams" so as to save Micki and Ryan; and setting up a small weapons arsenal to use against "The Butcher", then taking him out with his own barbed wire after removing the Thule Amulet (after he had taken out all of Jack's BandOfBrothers).
* FridgeBrilliance:
** The compact changing its powers seems to make no sense at first, until one considers what happened in the episode it first appeared in--not only did its owner end up killing herself once she achieved the love she wanted (but which she knew was only compelled and thus not truly hers), but she herself was a lonely and rejected girl whom everyone in her school believed unattractive. Killing ''herself'' after achieving her "love" instead of killing the man in question would break the love compulsion curse, and at the same time the death of an "ugly" tragic girl would cast a new curse related to giving beauty and the chance to have a life others would envy.
** At first the name given to the "Quilt of Hathor" is rather inexplicable, since an item marked with a Satanic pentacle and used to frighten people to death seems to have nothing to do with either the Egyptian pantheon or specifically a deity of goodness, love, motherhood, and community. (Although in and of itself a quilt would fit those last two.) But the main villain of the episode tends to use the quilt to kill people while envisioning herself as a sensuous, lusty woman at parties and dances, something which Hathor ''does'' hold sway over...and Hathor is also a goddess of fate who was believed to inspire people through divinatory ''dreams''.
** Why did the victims in "Symphony in B#" just stand there and wait to get stabbed? Look at their faces when Korda "plays" the violin. Of course a secondary ability of the violin would be to hypnotize its victims it'd help greatly in its ability to kill.
* HarsherInHindsight:
** The rather horrific statements of racism, classism, and moral/national superiority made by the Nazi commandant in "The Butcher" (who has posed as a radio talk show host), and the way he has so many callers enthusiastically agreeing with his demands for deportation, ethnic cleansing/genocide, and restoring America to greatness, are...extremely similar to a certain Presidential candidate and his supporters. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment Let's leave it at that]].
** "Mesmer's Bauble", wherein the pop star the episode revolves around dies by being melted into the villain, is hard enough to watch after learning her actress, the real-life singer Vanity, nearly died from renal failure due to drug overdosing and thus dropped out of show business. (In the episode her character loses her manager and lover, and nearly breaks down saying she can't go on...) It gets worse learning she died in 2016, right before her ex-partner and music mentor, Prince, died as well (eerily, at the same age). To cap it off, her character also sings a cover of "Nature Boy" in the episode--a song quite fitting for a story about a fan with unrequited love, but which was also used in ''Film/MoulinRouge'', wherein the singer character also died onstage.
* HoYay: [[ToyShip Ricky and J.B.]] in "A Friend to the End.''
* KickTheSonOfABitch:
** At the beginning of "The Voodoo Mambo", the estate handler and the realtor seem just a bit too smug at kicking out the VillainOfTheWeek from the home of his late father.
** The doctors mocking White Cloud for his Native American heritage in "The Shaman's Apprentice" most definitely seem to be receiving some well-deserved karma when he kills them to cure terminal patients. The chief surgeon coming to report to him that he has told the medical board to revoke his license is even more of an AssholeVictim, to the point that Micki actually thinks they should let White Cloud kill him if it will save her ill friend; her friend being left instead to face the definite likelihood of death in a couple months actually seems crueler by comparison, to the point of seeming like {{Black and Gray|Morality}} or even GrayAndGreyMorality.
* OlderThanTheyThink: The titular artifact in "The Poison Pen" had powers almost identical to a Manga/DeathNote. Also, the pentacle in the hand used by the FOX show ''Series/{{Werewolf}}'' is referenced in "Scarlet Cinema" thanks to it taking its plot (and footage) from ''Film/TheWolfMan1941''.
* RetroactiveRecognition:
** The female vampire near the start of "Night Prey" is [[Series/LawAndOrder Jill Hennessey]].
** [[Series/JustShootMe Enrico Colantoni]] is a crazed gardener in "Root of All Evil".
** The ventriloquist with the DemonicDummy in "Read My Lips" is [[Series/{{Charmed}} Billy Drago]].
** The mobster in "Badge of Honor" and the golddigger's criminal boyfriend in "13 O'Clock" is [[Series/TheSopranos David Proval]].
** The choreographer in "The Maestro" and the true-crime author in "Mightier Than the Sword" is [[Series/StormOfTheCentury Colm Feore]].
* TearJerker:
** The fate of Abraham's wife in "The Baron's Bride."
** [[CartwrightCurse The death]] of [[spoiler:Jack's OldFlame]] thanks to the trephanator, and especially his farewell to her at the end of the episode.
-->'''[[spoiler:Jack]]''': Well, Vi, now you know if there's anything after. Wait a while, darling...[[TogetherInDeath maybe we can be together again...after all]]...
** Also, the death of Ryan's father in his son's place (he ends up crying in Micki and Jack's arms), and Mrs. Kent becoming the seventh victim to heal her baby with the cursed cradle. Becomes TearsOfJoy when we see the baby lived and will be raised by the babysitter who loved her.
** William Pratt, aka Jeff Amory, his mind snapped, crying in Micki's arms after she tells him she still loves him, thinking she is the woman he loved and killed. It's also an in-universe example for Micki herself.
** Mrs. Wren, being forced to kill both her husband and son to save them from the "Mephisto's Ring."
** The death of [[spoiler:Jack's honorary niece, Grace]] in "The Maestro", and especially Jack's [[UnstoppableRage absolute]] [[HeroicSafeMode breakdown]] afterward.
** Johnny being forced to kill his [[BackFromTheDead resurrected father]] at the end of "Bad Penny" after finally realizing that it was wrong and selfish of him to bring his dad back from the grave without his own consent. At the very least, Johnny and his dad are able to finally make peace with one another before Johnny has to kill him with the episode's titular cursed artifact and that Johnny himself ends up crying emotionally as he holds his dad's body in his arms while Jack and Micki look on from the background.
** [[spoiler: Micki's DisneyDeath in "Tails I Live, Heads You Die"]].
** [[spoiler: Ryan's subverted HeroicSacrifice and being PutOnABus at the end of "The Prophecies"]].
