  • Bio-Augmentation: The woman Felix meets at the club, Astrid, since she's a Neolutionist.
  • Call-Back: When Helena sneaks into Beth's apartment, her actions mirror Sarah's when she did the same thing in the series premiere. Shot-by-shot comparison here.
  • The Care Taker: Tomas to Helena. He nursed her back to health after the events of episode 5.
  • Dancing with Myself:
    • Helena while waving Olivier's severed tail. Comes with a side order of Nipple and Dimed.
    • Felix takes a solo turn of his own on the dance floor.

  • First Kiss: Cosima and Delphine.
  • Foreshadowing: During his dinner with Delphine and Cosima, Leekie mentions that the Dyad has created a line of stem cells from human baby teeth. This becomes a plot point later in season 2.

  • Playing Nice for Now: Helena may tell Sarah "I'm supposed to kill you," but she's also polite enough to murmur "Excuse me" after a tiny post-meal burp.

  • Heroic Sacrifice: Paul, to give Sarah time to flee.
  • "It" Is Dehumanizing: Tomas refers to "The Imposter" (i.e. Sarah) as "it" in his conversation with Helena. This is a staple of the Proletheans with respect to the clones.
