YMMV: Strike Back
  • Foe Yay: Leatherby makes a pretty unsubtle pass at Stonebridge in the third episode of Shadow Warfare.
  • Ho Yay: Scott and Stonebridge. The former even Lampshades a particularly choice exchange.
    • Dalton also hangs a lampshade on this shortly after meeting them.
    • Shadow Warfare begins with them on vacation together, and ends with them on the road together.
      • At one point, while they're being tortured, Scott apologizes to Stonebridge - "I'm sorry Mikey. I gotta do this. All the love, you know that, right?" - before mouthing off to a druglord.
  • Like You Would Really Do It: It's extremely unlikely that a certain character was blown to pieces at the end of an episode. That said, some credit is due for the "next time" promos acting like they would.
    • And then horribly averted when many recurring characters are suddenly and unceremoniously Killed Off for Real. note 
    • In the final episode of '"Shadow Warfare'', Locke agrees to exchange Stonebridge and Scott for the Big Bad with a Russian mobster... and then it turns out he has snipers ready to kill the mobster as soon as the exchange is complete.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Conrad Knox, from the beginning of the season he has complete control of the situation with Section 20 several steps behind him.
    • Leo Kamali from Shadow Warfare, who proves himself to be one helluva Gambit Speed Chess master, with everyone dancing to his tune (and he dancing around them), who also managed to stay as The Man Behind the Man right until the last episode.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Andrew Lincoln as Collinson in series 1/Origins, which aired on Sky1 in May 2010. The Walking Dead premiered on AMC on Halloween of the same year.
