** In "The Descent of Man", the near-death of a skydiver whose parachute was sabotaged turns out to be connected with the deaths of two men who were killed from the sky.

* ShootTheShaggyDog: "[[spoiler: Fracked]]", essentially. Just when the team think they've figured out what's going on, Ecklie [[ShockingSwerve randomly forces them to close the investigation]] [[DiabolusExMachina for no real reason]]. Particularly infuriating because the team ''have'' been allowed to proceed with investigations in which they had much less evidence than this one.

** "A Thousand Days On Earth" is another rather gutting example. [[spoiler: Turns out there wasn't even any murder - the dead little girl had accidentally suffocated while playing with her foster siblings. Her foster father, a genuinely repentant ex-con, covered up her death because he didn't want to go back to jail, but before this is found out, his innocent wife is accidentally shot by an overzealous SWAT marksman. As if that weren't bad enough, Catherine unintentionally ruins the life of the totally-blameless first suspect by outing him as a registered sex offender (which he'd only become by accident - he obliviously stripped naked in front of a group of children while high), and in the episode's final scene he confronts her in the parking garage and tells her point blank that someday when she least expects it, he's planning to come to her house and commit suicide on her front lawn]].
