* AbsenteeActor: Bushmaster is not in this episode, with all the screentime focused on Luke, Misty, Mariah and Shades. This makes the reveal of the severed heads even more shocking.
* AlcoholInducedIdiocy: The drunken guests at Piranha's party think it's hilarious to break bottles on Luke's head and shoot him with guns to watch the bullets bounce. Shades goes to the party, specifically saying that he doesn't trust Piranha to keep his mouth shut while plastered.
* AssholeVictim: Cockroach, both in the flashbacks as well as in present day. In the flashbacks, he got framed by Scarfe for a murder he didn't commit (but he murdered several other people) and in the present day, Bushmaster decapitates him and mounts his head at Mariah's new clinic as a warning.
* BreatherEpisode: Everyone's focused on completely unrelated issues - Mariah getting ready to open her new Shirley Chisholm complex, Misty getting her new arm, and Luke getting sued by Cockroach - which means none of them are prepared for when Bushmaster pulls his severed heads stunt.
