YMMV: Haven
  • Adaptation Expansion: The show is based off a Stephen King mystery novel called "The Colorado Kid." Vince Teagues is a reporter, and the Colorado Kid is a mysterious appearing of a dead body several years before. That's about where the similarities end. Almost In Name Only.
  • Fan Nickname: "Fraudrey" for the second Audrey Parker who showed up at the end of season 1.
    • Ironically, it turned out that Fraudrey was in fact the REAL Audrey Parker and the first one is the fake!
  • Harsher in Hindsight: In-universe. Nathan's rage against Duke (with repeated references to his inability to feel) in "Harmony" feels even angrier after he reveals in "Sins of the Fathers" that he blames Duke for the return of his Trouble.
  • He Really Can Act: Outside of a few WWE fans, no one expected Edge to take to acting the way he has.
  • HSQ: Very high, especially from season three onwards.
  • Hollywood Pudgy: A most Egregious example can be found in "Reflections", where a girl says she was teased for being fat. She's really, really not.
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • Wade Crocker jumps into the family curse with both feet. He knifes a Troubled man to get his blood to activate the Crocker family curse, then murders Jordan whom he'd been attracted to.
    • Once William is revealed to be evil he does a lot of bad things, but the worst one has to be activating a baby's Trouble that causes people to die whenever it cries, so he could force Audrey to create a new Trouble to cancel it out.
    • Mara wastes no time proving how evil she is in season 5, murdering two people over two episodes for incredibly petty reasons.
  • The Woobie:
    • Nathan.
    • Will Brady in "Last Goodbyes".
