* BitterSweetEnding: Pierce wins the paintball competition and decides to donate the money to repair the school, but he comes to a decision to quit the Study Group.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Averted, since a nameless student is the first to get taken out by the Stormtroopers (however, Magnitude is the first named character to "die").
** Technically Chang is the first to be taken out, but since that was in the cliffhanger of the previous episode...

* DecoyProtagonist: The Dean and Jeff himself believe he is the the hero of the story. Turns out Jeff is the first of the study group to 'die'. Really any of the other members could make a better argument for being the protagonist. The day, however, is saved by Pierce and Shirley, the last two standing.
