* GoodCopBadCop: In the parenting sense, Stef tends to play bad cop and overall is a lot stricter than Lena. Kinda plays into their parental names--Stef is "Mom" which is more formal while Lena is "Momma" which is more casual.
** Ironically, later events in the first season play with the label. [[spoiler: We find out that she lies to Internal Affairs about her shooting. Her shooter shot her by accident and dropped his gun in shock which causes it to fire a second time; Mike comes in and, assuming he was still armed as it was a dark room, shot in return. This is an issue because, legally speaking, Mike just shot an unarmed man.]]
