Added DiffLines:

* BittersweetEnding: Teddy manages to get her daughter back (with Al essentially deciding [[KnowWhenToFoldEm to let her take her back]])... but Mona stays behind (hampered by the virus uploaded into her system), and [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled kills herself via electrocution]].
* BookEnds: Of a sort: Just like in [[Recap/TheOuterLimits1995S1E3Valerie23 the first episode to involve a killer fembot]], said robot is ultimately killed with a lamp.


Added DiffLines:

* HighVoltageDeath: With her systems being severely damaged by the virus, and faced with the prospect of being taken back to the lab and being destroyed, Mona grabs a lamp in Al's trailer and squeezes the light bulb until it bursts, [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled frying her systems.]]

!!Mona Tropa:
* DomesticAbuse: Teddy Madden was abused by her ex-husband Al during their marriage.
* GovernmentAgencyOfFiction: The Agency, which is so secret that it does not have a name.
* GrewBeyondTheirProgramming: The titular android, who was designed to be the perfect assassin, comes to realize that killing is wrong after her fail safes are deactivated.
* KillerRobot: The titular android was created by Dr. Willard Haley at the request of a secret government organisation called the Agency to serve as an assassin. She was given the appearance of a 25-year-old woman so that she could better serve as an infiltrator and gain the confidence of her targets.
* {{Robocam}}: The titular android's perspective is seen as she searches every database to which she has access for any information concerning the whereabouts of Teddy Madden's ex-husband Al and daughter Amanda.
* {{Technopath}}: The titular android is able to control any machine by remote. She uses this ability to hotwire a car and steal $100 from an ATM.
