- Broken Base: This is either the best episode in the history of the show, or the worst. There is very little middle ground.
- Moral Event Horizon:
- Evelyn crosses it when she becomes a willing accomplice to Prometheus' plan to break Oliver by faking her death; Jerkass doesn't even begin to describe her.
- To Anatoly, Oliver torturing a mook to death even though he told him what he wanted to know sure puts him right on the line. When even a mob captain is shocked by your brutality and says you're becoming a monster, it's official: you're going off the deep end.
- Kovar crosses this when he intends to use sarin gas to murder thousands of people, all so he can overthrow the Russian government.
- Narm: Kovar fails to recognize Oliver until his hood falls down (see Failed a Spot Check on the main recap page).
- Narm Charm: A rare care of deliberate Narm, as Adrian snapping Evelyn's neck at first comes off as obviously fake...and then it turns out it actually was.
