* MurderBySuicide: After getting tired of waiting for Anthony to kill himself, she simply told him of [[BitchInSheepsClothing her true nature]] to finally make him hang himself from despair.



---> ''“[[OffingTheOffspring You killed Sterling.]] [[DrivenToSuicide You killed your husband.]] [[DomesticAbuse You tortured me for years.]] [[{{Hypocrite}} You have no right to look at me and think of me as the demented one.]] [[HarmfulToMinors I learned it from you.]]”''

Added DiffLines:

* DestroyTheAbusiveHome[=/=]LetThePastBurn: Cinder burns down her former home with Brigit in it. She specifically states that there's nothing left for her there and that no amount of money would negate the horrors that were committed against her there.


* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Even after a {{Retcon}} finally gave Cinder's father a name, the name is only used once and he is mostly referred to as Brigit's husband or Cinder's (and the other kids'} father.



* NoNameGiven: Oddly enough, Cinder’s father’s first name isn’t given.



* SmallNameBigEgo: Even though Cinder was not a Maiden ad still in training, she still let it get to her head. Watts decides to take her down a peg, but she still remains arrogant about her future power.

* ShoutOut: Cinder's father was [[ComicBook/IronMan a rich man named Anthony Stark]].
* SmallNameBigEgo: Even though Cinder was not a Maiden ad and still in training, she still let it get to her head. Watts decides to take her down a peg, but she still remains arrogant about her future power.


* AssholeVictim: It's safe to say that Brigit deserved to kick the bucket.



* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Subverted for Cinder. At first, it seems like her revenge is motivated by what Brigit did to her father and her brother. However, Cinder seems to have no problem killing Clementine after the fact and completely dissociates herself from the Stark family after leaving. See LoveIsAWeakness.

See LoveIsAWeakness.



---> Unfortunately… it required me to have to kill Clementine as well. She didn’t know any better. She was as much a victim of Brigit as I was. But leaving her alive without a mother would be too cruel. And I couldn’t bring a girl as young as her where I was going. There was no getting around it, honestly. But I also couldn’t subject her to the fate that I have for my mother.

* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Handcuffed to a bannister and burned while the key to her release is barely outside her grasp. It’s hard to say that [[AssholeVictim Brigit]] didn’t deserve such an end.

* MeaningfulRename: Apparently, the rename to “Fall” and its connection to her future status as the Fall Maiden was [[AccidentallyAccurate accidental on Cinder’s part]]. She derived it from her middle name of “Autumn.” But Salem, knowing what she’d become, saw it as perfect.

* TheSociopath: Brigit Stark to a T. ConsummateLiar? Check. She is described as having acting skills that would put movie stars to shame. [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative]]? Check. She wraps her other two children around her finger and makes them hate Cinder. [[FauxAffablyEvil Superficial charm]]? Check. Her good looks help with that. LackOfEmpathy? Check. She feels no sorrow when her husband hangs herself and killed her son when he could no longer be a pawn to torment Cinder. [[ItsAllAboutMe Pathological selfishness]]? '''''Big check!''''' She only does things for her benefit. She married Cinder’s father for his money and dislikes having children because they could potentially take away from her cut of the money if they inherit it. Lack of remorse? Check. Even as Cinder burns her alive. She only cares about not dying. Now we know where Cinder gets a lot of it from.
