* BackToFront: The whole premise is this.
* ContrivedCoincidence:
** Elaine becoming Gabriel's partner, given that [[spoiler:she's been in love with him since he saved her as a child from a rape plot in a hospital.]]
** Christine's vicious burn marks and injuries. [[spoiler:A brief line implies she gave them to herself so she could be like her mother.]]
* CowboyCop: Gabriel is a vicious sociopath who will bully, intimidate, and at times physically harm suspects, while Elaine is a {{Yandere}} who is also [[spoiler:a serial killer.]]
* CrimeAfterCrime: Played with. The killer is fairly good at sticking to their intended target/s, but the investigation and [[spoiler:interventions from ''other'' killers]] often mean that more people end up dead than they intended.
* GreyAndBlackMorality: Gabriel's a vicious CowboyCop who is cheating on his wife with his partner. His wife covered up the fact that he might not be their daughter's father. Almost all of the other characters are [[spoiler:rapists, murderers, or both.]]

** [[spoiler:Elaine]] has been obsessed with Gabriel since their meeting [[spoiler:when she was a child]], and it led to the acid attack on him.

* MamasBabyPapasMaybe: Gabriel's wife isn't sure if their daughter Hannah is his or his boss's, Benton's.
* MayDecemberRomance:
** Gabriel and Elaine. [[spoiler:She's been obsessed with him since she was a child.]]
** Patrick and Sally. [[spoiler:Made even more disturbing by the fact that she is his stepdaughter, who he raised and probably groomed.]]
* PlotHole: How did Elaine ever become a police officer in the first place, with [[spoiler:her extremely traumatic past and horrific link to Gabriel]]?
* RapeLeadsToInsanity: [[spoiler:It's Elaine's whole motivation.]]
* ScaryBlackMan: Isaac, who starts off being a NeatFreak oddball before it's revealed that he was part of [[spoiler:a pedophile plot in a children's hospital.]]
* ScaryBlackWoman: Christine, a psychopath who is also accused of murder.
* SignificantAnagram: Elaine Shepard is [[spoiler:an anagram for Helena, a young girl that Gabriel saved while still a newbie police officer.]]
