* JoggersFindDeath: Happens from time to time. A subversion happened in "Want"; a couple was out walking their dog, only for said dog to run off and find the victim's body. Played straight in "Death Roe" where two joggers discovered the initial victim's body [[{{Squick}} after they noticed that her blood was dripping onto one of them.]]


Added DiffLines:

* NWordPrivileges: Discussed in "Acts of Contrition" when one of the perpetrators in a years ago brutal beating that left a Black man with permanent brain damage admitted to Goren, Eames and Carver that as he tried to crawl to her to escape his horrible ordeal, she instead yelled out, "What are you looking at, nigger?" and kicked him in the face. The admittance of this made her cry and begin to beg for Carver's forgiveness.


Added DiffLines:

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Played with in "The Healer" when the detectives interviewing a suspect's ex-husband, who shortly after their divorce came down with a mysterious illness that gave him a curious rash and made him lose twenty pounds due to being sick and then Logan himself ends up with a rash of unknown origins after being in contact with her. That and other information about her and those involved with her ending up dead, sick or in some other form of misfortune lead them to believe that she really did have magic powers. [[spoiler: Turns out, it was totally mundane; she merely poisoned both men with ivy.]]



* ShutUpHannibal: Logan gets a great one in after the suspect in "The Healer", an alleged Voodoo priestess who is nothing more than a master manipulator and a poisoned who even poisoned him and [[WhatAnIdiot continued to make thinly-veiled threats against him upon being arrested]]:

* RedHerring: Whenever the killer isn't revealed immediately, the episode will spend much time teasing the viewer is as to who it is, making certain that everyone is presented as a viable suspect.

* RedHerring: Whenever the killer isn't revealed immediately, the episode will spend much time teasing the viewer is as to who it is, making certain that everyone is presented as a viable suspect. For example, in one episode, all signs point to a disabled man's TrophyWife being physically abusive to him and the murderer of the man's academic rival. It turns that despite her [[SocialClimber social climbing]] ways, she's completely innocent on both counts-- the man's actually an EvilCripple who's been trying to frame her.

Added DiffLines:

* ShootHimHeHasAWallet: Subverted in "Pas De Deux"; the suspect really ''did'' have a gun, but it was a starter's pistol. Had he not been clumsy and dropped it, the police would have followed through with this trope, [[SuicideByCop which is exactly what he wanted.]]
** Played straight with Logan in "To The Bone" where he shot a suspicious man who was reaching for his [[spoiler: ''badge'']]. They both had been set up by a suspect that was [[OffingTheOffspring related to the man.]] [[{{Understatement}} The eventual revelation of these events left Logan horrified.]]
