** Werewolves and Witches. The books use a vague "evolution creates supernatural races" handwave, the show explicitly has [[spoiler:Werewolves created by a Witch's curse]]


* AdaptationOriginConnection: Clara has her past linked to Aleister (both original to the show), and Aleister is linked to Ruth and Paige [[spoiler: (being their son and half-brother respectively)]]

** Victor Olsen is a pedophile in books too, [[spoiler: the connection to Elena is new for the show]]



* CompositeCharacter: Aleister has shades of multiple characters - the original financer of the scientific program, the sorcerer in charge, and a half-demon who wants custody of Savannah.

* GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion: [[spoiler: After becoming unexpectedly pregnant, Rachel is excited to be a mother. That changes in season 2 when she gets kidnapped, experimented upon, and tortured because Logan (and by extension the baby boy she's pregnant with) are werewolves. She has an abortion off-screen late in season 2 largely in part because she ''cannot'' deal with all these new aspects in her life.

Added DiffLines:

* CompositeCharacter: Aleister has shades of multiple characters - the original financer of the scientific program, the sorcerer in charge, and a half-demon who wants custody of Savannah.
*CompressedAdaptation: Season 2 has whole chunks of the book it's based on cut out to simplify and streamline things. The facility where Elena is held only contains her and Savannah, as opposed to a multitude of different supernaturals. Their purpose is [[spoiler: to enable Aleister to kill all witches]], as opposed to the book's purpose of studying supernaturals to discover their origins.
** The show also removes the distinction between sorcerers and witches, making no mention of the former at all. Half-demons are also unmentioned, having little part to play in the second book.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: Ruth destroyed Clara's talisman (after she's found trading spells for money), making her powerless as a witch. Approximately thirty years ago [[spoiler: Ruth gave birth to Aleister and demanded Clara kill him (as a male which should never live, per the commandmant)]]. Clara [[spoiler: spares his life, leaves him in front of a church...and twenty-six years later hunts him down and tells him exactly who he is in revenge for Ruth's actions.]]

* ArtisticLicenseGeography:
** Stonehaven is 100 miles west of Syracuse, in the middle of nowhere, and the closest town, 50 miles away, is "Bear Valley." Apparently Buffalo and Rochester no longer exist. Also for some reason a train goes from Toronto to Bear Valley. Especially egregious considering that this was filmed in Toronto, and they should know better.
** The Pack drove from Rochester to Baton Rouge in the same day, approximately 1400 miles.
