* GreyAndGrayMorality: For instance, in "Prisoner of Love": Greevey wants to be taken off the case because he's a Catholic, and he feels sickened because the victim was a BDSM sex worker. Later, when interviewing the daughter of the victim, who died from hanging, she says that her father never would have committed suicide. When asked why, she says that it's because he's a Catholic.

* SuspectExistenceFailure: When a doctor who's supposed to be giving vital testimony in his daughter's case (she's up for murder, her defense is that it was assisted suicide) kills ''himself'' on the stand (via poison he administered several hours beforehand.) This, obviously, calls for a mistrial and [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled gets him out of facing consequences]] even though he'd practically admitted that there were less-than-merciful motives for the "assisted suicide" all along.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In the first few seasons it wasn't unusual for none of the main characters to appear until after the credits. One season three episode ("Consultation") in particular has a lengthy ER scene where doctors attempt to revive the victim for a full minute with none of the show's regular cast in sight.

** In another Season 1 episode, "Out of the Half-Light", the rape of an African-American girl by white cops turns into a witch-hunt against the judicial system after an ambitious Congressman gets involved. It turns out that [[spoiler:the girl was never raped; she lied about it knowing this was the only way her strictly religious father would allow her to have an abortion.]]

** "His Hour Upon The Stage", for example, is a line from a famous {{Macbeth}} soliloquy about people's lives being devoid of meaning, comparable to actors in a play. In the episode, a producer's body is found ''five years after he was killed'' by [[spoiler: an actress who used him and his play production company to advance her career and as a front to sell drugs, and killed him when he got wind of the plot. Stone lampshades the fact that she viewed the victim as an actor on her stage]].
