- Magnificent Bastard: Gavin is constantly running at least three schemes that feed into each other, and at times it seems every single event in the show is one big con game by him.
- Rooting for the Empire: Henry and Jane's characters are... not the best ones on the show, especially Henry.
- Too Dumb to Live: Annie, literally. You have the power to write obituaries that magically come true. There's a scary hitman after you. And you don't even think about trying to write the scary hitman's obituary?
- What an Idiot: Anyone who makes deals with Gavin Doran. Seriously, damning yourself for eternity just to get something now? Hasn't anyone learned anything from Faust?
- Henry's failing to notice ANYTHING weird about their new digs.
- Also Jane's investigating every sort of spooky stuff ALONE.
- And bringing the spooky suitcase IN HER AND HENRY'S APARTMENT.
- That last one can't entirely be her fault. She seemed hypnotized by something, or under some kind of power while doing so.
- The thing in question is the spirit of her dead great-grandfather.
