Is there a trope for a sort of literary cop-out? In the first book Todd treats it as a big deal that he can't kill someone, then he kills one of the indigenous Spackle. Later on in the book one of the characters acts like killing the Spackle didn't count, and everyone acts like the tension over whether Todd will kill or not still exists.
