* Brenda is told that the man responsible for the murder of some young women is a mob informant for the FBI and thus protected. In an interrogation, Brenda lets it known to the guy and his mob lawyer they know his connection. Realizing what will happen if his bosses find out, the guy tries to confess...only for his lawyer to give him an "air-tight alibi" that Brenda says is too convincing so they can't hold him. The lawyer drags the guy out as he practically begs Brenda to throw him in jail and the cops know the guy will "be dead when he leaves the building." When Pope asks Brenda if it was worth it, she just shows the picture of one of the victims as answer.
* A young man who murdered a little girl flees to Mexico and is arrested there. Brenda heads there, giving the guy a chance after chance to confess to the killing but he refuses. Sighing, Brenda then shows how the girl was born in Mexico, making her a Mexican citizen so they have first crack at him. In other words, the guy is about to go to a ''Mexican'' prison as a known ''child molester'' which is akin to a death sentence.
** It gets better. The perp is refusing every pressure to confess, then Brenda says that they will waive extradition from Mexico if he will just tell her what happened, so she can have some sort of closure. He does, figuring it won't matter since the can't bring him back to America to face prosecution. Once he is done, that's when she shows the documentation that he had murdered a Mexican citizen, to which he has just confessed in front of a room of Mexican police. He then begs for her to take him back to American, to which she replies it is too late now.

* A At the climax of "Good Housekeeping", a young man who murdered a little girl flees to Mexico and is arrested there. Brenda heads there, giving the guy a chance after chance to confess to the killing but he refuses.

* ''Buzz'', of all people, gets a passing one. Yeah, Buzz, almost-never-seen-outside-of-the-viewing-room-Buzz. Unlike the multiple cops that searched the suspect, Buzz notices the gun that perp in the interview room pulls out . . . and is about to use it to kill Brenda. Without Buzz's quick warning, the guy may well have killed her [[spoiler:instead of himself]]. Very subtle, very awesome.

* The mid-surgery confrontation with the AntiVillain doctor in "Heart Attack." In just one scene, he establishes himself as an underrated MagnificentBastard by casually shooting down all of Brenda and co.'s attempts to arrest him before he's finished, and ShutUpKirk-ing them whenever they try to KirkSummation him for his VigilanteMan actions. And in the end, he surrenders with a sense of satisfaction, and the cops are forced to let his stolen organs be used exactly how he intended (i.e., to save innocent lives at the expense of AssholeVictim lives).

* In just one scene, the AntiVillain doctor in "Heart Attack" proves himself quite the underrated MagnificentBastard. In the middle of performing a heart-transplant, he casually gives Brenda and co. a list of reasons why trying to force their way into his surgery room would be a bad idea, then a ShutUpKirk list of reasons why his {{Asshole Victim}}s' deaths have made the world better (if only just a bit). At the end, said transplant is a success, and he surrenders with a sense of satisfaction about his OrganTheft, VigilanteMan mission.

* Early on, there's a scene where Brenda finds herself alone with the killer. After being hit repeatedly by a cattle prod, she still manages to shoot him--repeatedly. Then she grabs her recorder and ''tries to get a confession from the dying man.'' The bad guy grabs his prod again, and she ends up shooting him ''again''--but still feels like she's failed for not "closing" the case. Wow.
