  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: "I know men who'd rape you!" The line is completely over the top, and doesn't lead to anything later. Even stranger is the fact that it was a clear Narmy scene in the original series and it's a wonder why they kept it in a second time.
  • It's the Same, Now It Sucks!: A common criticism is it was too similar to its UK counterpart: (the first episode was a shot-by shot remake of it's UK parent) so there was really nothing new to hold the audience's attention. Even the killer was more or less the same.
  • Tear Jerker: Jacks fate. The investigation ends up causing the town to discover that Jack was involved in a relationship with a minor back then. This causes a petition to form against him, a mob to show up at his place that comes very close to ending violently and his house getting trashed outside. The media also pokes into his past which involves his kids death (who was three years younger than Danny when he died). The last part is what drives him to suicide.
    • Susan Wrights own past and how her biological son Vince reacts to the news when Carver tells him the truth.
      • The Miller family in the ending, especially for Ellie.
  • The Woobie: Jack. Lucky to get out of prison alive even though he was jailed for a completely consensual relationship. His son dies and his marriage crumbles. Ollie digs up his past and soon the entire town turns against him, hounding him until he's Driven to Suicide.

How well does it match the trope?
