  • Doomsday Device: In the wrong hands, the Pop Rocket (aka the Pieces III) qualifies.
  • Heroic BSoD: Virgil's breakdown, which happened during the events of Episode 1, but isn't shown until Episode 3.
  • Unspoken Plan Guarantee: Played with when Virgil, Weaver, and Fisher break into Redhaven. Fisher explains the fake I.D.s to get them inside, and they are (almost) caught at the door, but their escape plan is not discussed until the last second, and (mostly) succeeds.
