* {{Forgiveness}}: Played with. At first, it's clear that Marni's path to forgiving her high school bully is nigh impossible, especially when the latter keeps trying to bury the past. [[spoiler: But later on, it's reconstructed once a [[BreakTheHaughty humbled]] Joanna acknowledges that she's [[IHatePastMe genuinely sorry for everything she did to Marni]], and in turn, Marni finds the closure to let truly let go of her grudge.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BlasphemousBoast: In [[spoiler: Joanna's time capsule video, true to her [[AlphaBitch character]]]], she boasts to the camera "The meek shall ''[[DarkReprise not]]'' inherit the Earth".


Added DiffLines:

* SmugSnake: Probably why [[spoiler: teenage Joanna thought it was a good idea to bully Marni in front of the camera and bitterly advertise "It's better to be bad" was because she was %100 certain at the time that nobody would see the video for 50 years. How wrong she was.]]

* BookEnds: Gail and Ramona's friendship was ruined [[spoiler:and years later rebuild]] in a pool.
* BothSidesHaveAPoint: Simultaneously, both sides are wrong. Joanna shouldn't have just assumed that, [[spoiler:if they would ignore what happened in high school, things would be okay and they could start again]], not that Marni's decision to [[spoiler:publicly shame her for the person she was in high school]] instead of attempting to look for a way to solve the issue with discretion and dignity was any better.

* GreenEyedMonster: Ramona. [[spoiler:Most of her actions spark from jealousy towards Gail. Gail got everything Ramona ever wanted easily by being the most popular girl in high school. This sparked again when, after meeting her again, Ramona realizes that Gail has a successful marriage and a family, something she could never have.]]

* SchoolBullyingIsHarmless: Subverted, Marni was entirely too messed up for what Joanna put her through, to such a level that she moved away from the city as soon as she got the chance. When they finally confront each other, Marni states that Joanna can't just brush off her actions just because it happened in high school, since it had lasting damage on Marni's mentality and self-image.
