Tropes

  • As the Good Book Says...: Donna sways Pastor Don from calling a lawyer in part because she knows an Evil Lawyer Joke from the Bible by heart.
  • Dirty Cop: The "Butterfly Killer" turns out to be an FBI Agent who's formed an alliance with literal monsters.
  • Find the Cure!: For Doug's vampirism after Marlon infects him.
  • Internal Reveal: Doug has never known about monsters and hunting before. When he finds out, and after he's temporarily stricken with vampirism, it ends their relationship.
  • Murder.com: The Butterflly's victims are tortured on a live feed and their meat is auctioned off to online bidders.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Dean reads Sam's sleeping late and his harshness with Donna as a sign that something is wrong. Sam says he's just being realistic.
  • Sinister Minister: Pastor Don Hankey is a mild example. Definitely a creepy ephebephile, but not involved with the kidnappings.
  • Advertisement:
  • Soundtrack Dissonance: The slaughters and other nasty business in the Butterfly's lair are accompanied by romantic soul music.
  • To Serve Man: Clegg's business is based on monsters who are passing and can't hunt for their own food being willing to pay for gourmet cuts of human.
