  • Improvised Weapon: Sam's sculptures can do a lot of damage.
  • Magic Skirt: In Freeze My Margarita Sam insists her skirt cannot be looked up by simple virtue of being too tight.
  • Mystery Magnet: Lampshaded, Sam is well aware of how weird it is that people keep dying around her and at one point exploits that to intimidate a suspect.
  • What Did I Do Last Night?: From the synopsis for Chained
    When Sam Jones wakes up handcuffed in a cellar and with a terrible headache, she naturally assumes she is suffering the aftermath of a great night out.
