* Subsequent books make it clear that most vanilla mortals who encounter the supernatural ''have'' to block it from their memory in self-defense, because it's too psychologically destabilizing to cope with. The [=ThreeEye=] addicts don't have that escape, because things experienced with the Sight ''cannot'' be forgotten. Ever. They're ''never'' going to get over what they've Seen.

* While Butters was 'safely' behind TheMasquerade at this point, he still spent ''years'' trying to figure out what was going on after examining those corpses. When the subject comes up during ''Cold Days'', one gets the impression that he's kind of relieved to finally have an explanation. [[spoiler:Less relief that it came up out of a discussion of what the bad guys might be able to do with the blood Harry was leaving behind.]]

** The realization of what the spell is supposed to do when properly powered. The version of the spell used in this book is roughly the equivalent of powering something through a potato battery.
*** For those who haven't read Changes [[spoiler: It is a genocide spell. It starts with the target and starts traversing their family tree. Killing EVERYONE along the way. Yeah...]]

* The way that the mobster and his girlfriend are murdered in ''Storm Front''. Their hearts EXPLODE OUT OF THEIR CHESTS. ''While having sex.''
** Although this can double as a horrific Crowning Moment of Heartwarming-- you later find out only the girl was targeted. The mobster dies because he was in love with her, and in that moment, their hearts were as one.
