- Alas, Poor Villain / Tear Jerker
- Annoying Arrows
- Bad Guy Bar / Bad Guys Play Pool
- Book Ends: Cordelia kissing the Beast, and Cordelia kissing Connor.
- Cardboard Prison: The prison Faith is kept in is presumably sufficient to keep ordinary humans inside. However, after Faith breaks out of it in 30 seconds (including about 1 second of planning), there can be no question that her incarceration was completely voluntary.
- Well, given that the steps in Faith's escape involved things such as 'Step one: Head-butt your way through inch-thick shatterproof glass' and 'Step three: Fall four stories without bruising', the prison's designers can hardly be faulted for not planning on the inmates being able to do that.
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Literally
- Continuity Nod: An inmate tries to kill Faith with a Bringer knife, as a result of an outside contract presumably organised by an agent of the First, the Big Bad of Season 7 Buffy the Vampire Slayer who seeks to destroy the Slayer line. The actress playing that inmate also played a human assassin in BTVS "What's My Line?" though it's unclear if they're meant to be the same person. Also Wesley using Faith's Catch Phrase "Five by Five" and introducing her as "Faith, the Vampire Slayer".
- Dead Person Conversation
- Death of the Hypotenuse: Lampshaded by Lilah.
- Description Cut
- Double Entendre: In an episode with both Angelus and Faith? No kidding.
Wesley: (watching Faith stake two vampires) Feel natural?
- And once more with Foe Yay when Faith discovers the Beast is in it with Angelus.
Angelus: Smile, Faith. I thought you'd enjoy a threesome.
- Disconnected by Death: Angelus makes his phone call to Sunnydale from a smashed and blood-splattered booth.
- Due to the Dead / Off With Her Head / Killed Mid-Sentence / Gory Discretion Shot
- Exactly What I Aimed At: Faith hurls a construction hook at Angelus, who easily dodges the slow-moving, dangling object and snarks about Faith's bad aim, and is about to close in for the kill when the hook shatters a covered window, releasing brilliant shafts of sunlight that separate the two.
- Fainting: Cordelia does the Fainting Seer act when Connor is about to walk out and take on Angelus.
- Foe Yay: On hearing that a Slayer is in town, Angelus calls Dawn in Sunnydale and asks if he can speak to her sister. On hearing a reply in the affirmative, Angelus hangs up and mutters in a disappointed tone, "It's the other one."
- Hot Amazon: Connor is quite taken with Faith after she defeats him and apparently the Beast.

Lilah: You're free now. No longer encumbered with the secret shame of our relationship.
- Mooks: Angelus recruits some henchvamps.
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Angelus kills the Beast and restores the sun, much to his annoyance.
- Not What It Looks Like: Angelus' verbatim reaction to being caught holding Lilah's body right after she'd been stabbed in the neck by Cordelia. Everyone naturally assumes he's the one who killed her, and Angelus is so amused by this turn of events, and by the fact that the heroes would never believe him anyway, that he doesn't even try to hide his snickers as he delivers the line.
Angelus: (in a sarcastically overwrought voice) Wait, guys, it's not what it looks like!
