* LoggingOnToTheFourthWall: [[https://twitter.com/Sharon_Raydor Raydor]], [[https://twitter.com/TheRustyBeck Rusty]], and [[https://twitter.com/AndyFlynn_ Flynn]] have {{Twitter}} accounts, which are updated even when the show isn't currently airing. Said tweets contain references to "camera crews following [them] around", or did when filming started again, which means that apparently, InUniverse ''Major Crimes'' is a reality show. [[note]]Which is pretty unlikely, given that all the sensitive information displayed.[[/note]]

* ExplainExplainOhCrap: In the pilot Flynn is venting at Raydor blaming her for the death of an armed robber who was about to confess, as the new rule instituted by the department forced them to keep him at the scene instead of being taken to the station where he wouldn't have been shot by his accomplices. As he finishes up by pointing out no other law enforcement agency in the country would have done anything like that, [[spoiler: Raydor realizes he's right: it wouldn't have been done anywhere else. So how did the ''killer'' know about the new policy, not used anywhere else, so he'd know he could return to the scene twenty minutes later and his victim would still be there?]]

* CentralTheme: The Season 5 finale, "Shockwave", has the recurring theme of "failure to communicate". Most obviously, [[spoiler:the suspect in the case plead guilty to a crime he didn't commit. A few weeks later, the police finally processed evidence that would exonerate him, but no one told him or his lawyer. It got lost in the system, and the Major Crimes team only finds it after he got out and started taking revenge. Everything in the episode stems from that one failure.]]



* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In "Shockwave", it turns out [[spoiler:the current killer was falsely imprisoned due to LAPD error. Buzz is visibly disturbed by the fact that they put an innocent man in prison, making them responsible for said man's murderous revenge campaign when he got out.]]

** Mary Conrad in "Bad Blood" who was a detective who retired because she was caught taking kickbacks during her time as a fraud detective. She also stole her neighbor's packages, tryied to punch anyone not in a uniform (even those in a uniform, like Sharon Raydor), and killed a neighbor's dog. That's not even getting into the reason ''why'' she was killed! [[spoiler:She lied to her own family about losing her pension so that they would have to pay for her bills, risking depriving her grandnephew's chance to go a good school. When her nephew-in-law found out about it and Mary was still all too happy to continue stealing from them, [[RageBreakingPoint he lost it and]] [[KarmicDeath beat her to death with her own badge]]. Then, he tried to cover up killing her by making it look like a break-in]] After Andrea Hobbs hears why Mary was killed, she states it would be very likely that the killer would walk not just because of the lack of evidence but also due to how unsympathetic the victim was.
