Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: By now Barnes is pretty much [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries The Judge]], a mentally troubled former lawman who decides to deal with criminals in a more hands-on fashion, eventually decides the whole city is corrupt, and states that he is the law.


* SlasherSmile: Barnes sports a particularly unnerving one when, at the end of the episode, he's surrounded by hallucinations of demons instead of Falcone's party guests, with the voices practically singing, "Guilty! Guilty!" in his head. He seems to be ''looking forward'' to

Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFetishist: There is something '''off''' about Isabella. Previously, she revealed that her favorite stories are the ones where StarCrossedLovers wound up dying together instead of living apart. Also, after learning about Ed killing his past girlfriend who looks exactly like her, she decided to keep dating him. When he tries to break up with her this episode, not only will she not allow it, but she ''dresses up like his deceased girlfriend'' and then puts his hand on her own throat, in a way recreating the scene of Kristen's death. In other words, she puts herself in the exact same situation as Ed's ex, to help him move past his fears, but judging by her favorite stories, perhaps she's planning for her and Ed's love story together to have a tragic end.
