* BoringButPractical: Ironwood's fighting style, as finally showcased in this episode, favours basic punches, kicks, tackles and PistolWhipping in hand-to-hand combat, and his primary weapon is a simple revolver with no transformation. It's no less effective than the fancy moves of other Huntsmen, and is more than sufficient to take on Watts.

* SkewedPriorities: Having just learned that Cinder is somewhere inside of Atlas because of the CallingCard she left on his desk, what does Ironwood focus on? That Blake and Yang told Robyn about the Amity Tower and helped her escape capture, going against his orders. His fury at their "betrayal" (Born of a well-meaning attempt to make Robyn understand Ironwood's intentions to protect the kingdom and win her trust and help) proceeds to overtake his panic at Cinder's presence.

* HopeSpot: A third of the way into the episode, things are looking incredibly optimistic. Watts is defeated, Tyrian is in custody, and the citizens of Mantle are being evacuated to safety in Atlas. Then Ironwood discovers the Black Queen chess piece in his office, and [[FromBadToWorse everything quickly goes downhill from there]].

* PoorCommunicationKills: When Ironwood makes the decision to abandon Mantle to the Grimm, Jaune sends out a group call about an emergency. Ruby immediately announces Ironwood's plans and Salem's approach. Before she can finish, Ironwood shuts off their scrolls with his own. This means Jaune can't tell them about Oscar being missing from his room, and that the Lantern is possibly in danger.

* DefiantToTheEnd: By the end of their fight, Ironwood has overpowered Watts, who was last seen being held by the neck over a volcanic biome by the former. Even with the latter being held dead to rights with Ironwood declaring that he "will sacrifice whatever it takes to stop Salem", Watts is unfazed. He simply grins, spits out blood, and states he hope that's true. Just look at the page quote.

* BigSisterInstinct: When Salem uses the fate of Ruby's mother against her, Ruby collapses to the ground, sobbing. Yang rushes to her side and cradles Ruby's head on her lap to comfort her.
