* LockedOutOfTheLoop: For most of the series, Harry keeps pretty much everyone in the dark about his bracelet, which makes sense since it's hard to believe. In Series 2 he tries to tell Anna, [[CassandraTruth though she doesn't believe him]], and Daisy learns and accepts the truth. This trope however is fully deconstructed in regards to his relationship with Suri, since his secrecy about what is happening contributes to him becoming a BrokenPedestal and Suri being unable to to trust him when [[spoiler:he's the victim of a FrameUp]].
