** Sara is Lindy's little sister, not her child; nonetheless, I'm pretty sure watching Sara get pulled into that black van while Lindy watches, screams, and tries frantically to get out the car (trapped in a drive-thru!) and get to her would give any parent the shivers.
** Not to mention the whole reason for Lindy's site, the never4gottengroup: someone you love disappears, you never hear from them again, and the police don't (seem) to be doing anything to find them.

* {{Magnificent Bastard}}: [[spoiler: Hamish, so much. Quickly established as a major asshole, he's also revealed to have 'business' dealings with cyber-terrorist Bubonic. '''Then''' he's revealed as the mastermind behind the Babylon Portal. When he's caught, he remarks 'I always have a parachute', and offers crucial information to the identity of the Flirtual Killer - in exchange for destroying Babylon and all proof against him. He also makes this offer in front of two of the few people who have very strong reasons to take this deal, rather than a chance to arrest and prosecute all those illegal acts.]]

** [[spoiler: Pretty sure that Jake was the only one motivated to do those killings. ''However'', Reese Mastin's murder was so perfectly co-ordinated to give Jake an alibi, that Jake must have had an alliance with Reece's killer at least, and an actual accomplice at worst.]]



* BoundAndGagged: [[spoiler: Lindy is victim to this in Episode 7, "SOS". Lindy would have also been branded had Tommy not come to her rescue.]]
** [[spoiler: Actually, the pervert for hire specifically says that he was asked to scare Lindy with the possibility of branding her - with a mark of 'the perfect ten', no less! It's the Flirtual Killer's way of punishing Lindy for kissing Jake in public; but he can't actually have her permanently disfigured, or TFK himself will be guilty of ruining Lindy's 'perfection'. But Lindy doesn't know that, the viewer doesn't know it at the time either, and it's still damn scary to watch.]]
** [[spoiler: In [=A4U=], Sophia lies bound and gagged in the back of a black van, as part of Jake's 're-run' of Sara's kidnapping.]]

** [[spoiler: I think that's meant to be an example of just how terrifying this guy is: the Cyber-crimes Unit is good; Lindy is very, very good (in part because she doesn't care about stuff like warrants). The Flirtual Killer is better than all of them... possibly all of them put together.]]
