* TheNthDoctor: The opening scene has Kovacs re-sleeved, and the actor portraying him switches from Byron Mann to Joel Kinnamen. As a perk his new body comes equipped with military-grade neurochemistry and combat muscle memory.innovate.test

* GladToBeAliveSex: Implied to be the reason Kovacs and his partner hook up in the opening. [[NoodleIncident Whatever]] just happened to them previously, it was bloody and violent. It's somewhat spoiled by the fact that Kovacs is [[ReplacementLoveInterest fantasizing about Quellcrist the whole time]].

* PeopleFarms: Sleeves in cold storage at Alcatraz are put into these, and vacuum sealed into bags of liquid. It keeps them from atrophying or decaying. The process of unpacking them and then uploading them with a new Stack is traumatic enough to cause Kovacs to WakeUpFighting, and he ends up breaking a technician's nose before being convinced to calm down.


* LockedRoomMystery: Only Kovacs and his wife had access to the safe containing the weapon used to kill him. As the wife has flawlessly passed a LieDetector, the police naturally assume it's a BungledSuicide.

Added DiffLines:

* ListOfTransgressions: The warden makes an attempt to go over Kovacs' file, but since just the ''unclassified'' portions of the document contain "more murders than I can count" he just hits a few highlights and gets on with it.

Added DiffLines:

** Among the crimes committed on the day Bancroft said he was murdered, Ortega mentions a Neo-Catholic woman dumped in the Bay.


** * Ortega and Samir brainstorm why Laurens Bancroft would want to hire an ex-Envoy terrorist.

-->'''Samir:''' Hired muscle? Uh, expensive toy? I don't know; maybe he's planning to invade another star system over the weekend like a Meth version of laser ball.


* LayeredMetropolis: San Francisco is now Bay City, a SkyscraperCity with [[StarScraper megatowers reaching above the clouds]] [[UrbanSegregation for the rich]], and a [[CityNoir rain-soaked metropolis beneath]]. There's some kind of above-ground [[TubeTravel tube transport system]], {{Flying Car}}s are [[IWantMyJetPack finally]] the norm and the [[TheConstant Golden Gate Bridge]] is now [[Megacity clustered with buildings]].

Added DiffLines:

* DramaticShattering: Kovacs is riddled with bullets by the Praetorians and is blown through the requisite sheet of glass. The last thing he remembers is his dying face reflected in a shattered mirror.

Added DiffLines:

* StartsWithASuicide: But is it a suicide?

Added DiffLines:

* SittingOnTheRoof: Instead of going up to his room to rest, Kovacs goes up to the roof of the Raven Hotel and contemplates blowing his stack out. A hallucination of Quellcrist talks him out of it.
