* MyBelovedSmother: Possibly the most extreme one ever in "Tragedy". [[spoiler:A woman's adult daughter started a relationship with a man who had a pregnant ex-girlfriend, and hired a hitman to kidnap and murder the ex-girlfriend and her newborn baby, so her own daughter could marry the boyfriend and have a happy life together. Her daughter is not pleased when she finds out.]]

-->[[spoiler:'''Melinda's mother:''' Why? I had no other choice. You love Daniel. You deserve a wonderful life together. That baby would have ruined everything.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Melinda:''' I told you that didn't matter to me.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Melinda's mother:''' Oh, you've always been so trusting. But I know men. Daniel would have taken your money and gone back to that woman and her baby. I did this for you. I wanted you to be happy. That's all I ever wanted!]]

* ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe: Gender inverted and deconstructed when a boring nine-to-five man was so convinced that his wife would cheat on him with one of her exciting and artistic coworkers that he injected a tracking chip into her while she was sleeping, [[RealityEnsues which almost killed her because he didn't sterilize the injection site]].

* {{Gaslighting}}: This occurs in "Girl Dishonored" where a rape victim was gaslit by her ''entire campus''. It was so bad that her roommate called campus security and forcefully had her committed. She was so traumatized that she agreed to get EST at the mental institution.

** In "Real Fake News," the team is dealing with a conspiracy freak pushing stuff on his site like a Congressman using a Chinese daughter as a sex slave ring. At first, they treat the guy's site as just an annoyance getting in the way. But then he pushes a story on how Benson and Rollins are both "mothers of children of unknown origin," blatantly hinting they stole their kids and are thus covering up a "sex scandal." Needles to say, the two women are now joined in taking this guy down.

*** To further his "proof" the man shows off photos of young women leaving and asking "Where are their mothers?" He then shows how the diner's logo is a dragon with a tail he claims is heart-shaped which matches a pedophile symbol. Rollins can only FacePalm in response to this lunacy.

** In "Real Fake News," a website puts out word of a Congressman using a Chinese diner as a sex slave operation. Rollins and Finn go the site's owner who shows "proof" in the form of an e-mail the Congressman sent about how the place got a "fresh batch of Chinese broccoli" in and they have to try out. As they shrug, the man just laughs on how it's "obvious" that's code for an underage Chinese sex slave as "who eats dinner at 4 pm?"
-->'''Owner''': On pedophile boards, CB stands for Chinese Brides.
-->'''Finn''': It can also stand for ''Chinese broccoli.''

* WoundedGazelleGambit: Used more than once, like the case where a woman has consensual sex with her lawyer and then accuses her ex-husband of raping her... purely out of bitchy spite and to ruin his life. [[spoiler:The guy can't prove that he wasn't a marital rapist, loses it and ''sets her on fire''. In her very death bed, she ''keeps lying to Olivia'' about how she was "raped". Olivia only finds out the truth casually, as she speaks to the lawyer, and is appalled by how [[FromBadToWorse it got Worse]].]]

* DarkerAndEdgier: Than the parent series by a good margin. Both have CrapsackWorld on display in earnest but this series lands much further on the cynical side. While ''Series/LawAndOrder'' had criminals facing justice one way or another, this series has LaserGuidedKarma as naught but a wistful dream at times and the possibility of becoming a KarmaHoudini is ''always'' present. Similarly, while the main characters on ''Series/LawAndOrder'' weren't free of vice they were saints compared to the ones here who practically live by ProtagonistCenteredMorality and arguably cause more problems than they ultimately solve with their actions.
