Added DiffLines:

* FireForgedFriends: Not so much in season one. With the Cons only out for themselves and the Cops having their own issues. However they soon earn each others trust. Comes season two Lloyd drops his insults and encourages Shea in his legitimate business pursuits. Shea warms up to him and has his and Erica's back. Erica trusts the others more. This even extends to the cops, Charlie turns down a promotion to ensure the program keeps going. Ray sometimes arms Erica and Shea when he needs tactical support and trusts them to back him up. Even Juliette is more open around them. This extends to the series finale when without hesitation the Cons and Cops work together to save Ray's daughter without hesitation.

* BrutalHonesty: This appears to be how Lloyd views his profiling; he doesn't understand why Shea gets pissed when he rattles off statistics about black crime rates or why Erica is enraged to the point of attacking him when he [[EurekaMoment realizes that]] [[spoiler: she's got a daughter who she's been separated from]].

The fact he uses them to insult them may have part to do with it. Of course as the series goes on we see that Lloyd despite his intelligence [[FridgeBrilliance suffers from self esteem issues and used his insults and intelligence to prove himself.]] Come season two when he feels more comfortable with the group he drops the insults and attitude.

** For example, Lloyd gets ''twenty-five years'' for writing an illegal prescription to pay for his debts, a prescription that his "patient" paid for, and then used to commit suicide with by downing a handful of pills with a bottle of vodka. Of course Lloyd unlike Shea and Erica while being very book smart is not as verse in the legal World as Shea and Erica. Shea as a professional criminal knew how to work the system to get the least time. Erica as a former bounty hunter knew how to make sure she could not go down for her actual crime of multiple murder .

*** Its important to note that the girl probably would have found a way to commit suicide without the pills anyway.
** Shae, on the other hand, got considerably less time, and less stigma, when he ran a gang syndicate which was directly responsible for dozens of deaths.

** For example, Lloyd gets ''twenty-five years'' for writing an illegal prescription to pay for his debts, a prescription that his "patient" begged for, and then used to commit suicide with by downing a handful of pills with a bottle of vodka. Everyone treats him like a murderer, including himself. In fact the team seems to view his wrongful endangerment as being more reprehensible than the murders that Shay and Erica have actually committed.

* NWordPrivileges: Shea stops doing business with Carmen Vega partly because she tried to get him to sleep with her and partly because she called him a "word he doesn't allow people who aren't black to call [him]".

* {{Expy}}: Lloyd is basically [[PrisonBreak T-Bag]], taken down a few notches.
** YMMV. T-bag is a egotistical, psychotic rapist and murderer who has no remorse and speaks with a creepy southern drawl. Lloyd is a certified genius with awful social skills, a crushingly guilty conscience, and a habit of rambling into science speak when nervous. The only similarities is that they are both skinny white convicts with a habit of playing mind games (though this is mostly accidental on Lloyds part) and some serious mommy issues.
** Watching their confrontation in 'The Bag Man' really highlights just how different they are. T-bag is a growling, twisted, wild animal with an abusive childhood and a violent disposition. Lloyd is quiet, calm, and in control of himself, has multiple graduate level degrees and a shrew sense of intelligence.

* CharacterOverlap: In the third episode of the first season [[PrisonBreak T-Bag]] breaks out from Fox River, yet again. An unprecedented case of a character crossing over to a show on a completely different network. The show was originally owned by Fox.
** Not to mention, it was unadvertised; only people who had seen ''Series/PrisonBreak'' would know about the crossover.
