** "By Any Means, Part 3", involves Sanchez looking up a real estate listing on Zillow. Everyone knows about it, apparently. (Except for Provenza.)

** Rusty's mother somehow manages to be even worse than his father. [[spoiler: She tries to use him to get illegal drugs and when he eventually refuses to give into her demands she blames him for her drug use, her abandonment of him, and him being forced into prostitution. In front of the rehab clinic. And then she calls him later that day to pick her up after she leaves to rehab center and starts drinking again. And ''then'' she calls him up a few weeks later because she's been arrested. When he goes to visit her in jail, she asks him to earn her bail money by prostituting himself again. The look on his face is heartbreaking.]]

* DeathByIrony: In "Conspiracy Theory Pt 4", [[spoiler:Sharon starts yelling at a suspect for being selfish. While she's back in the office, despite explicit medical orders to avoid stress on her failing heart, causing concern in literally ''every recurring character in the show'', for a case her team can handle on its own. She's being pretty selfish herself. And the stress kills her.]]

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: After the numerous times that ''TheCloser'' screwed itself over with 6th Amendment violations, this has changed in ''Major Crimes''. The way they get around it now is usually with the interrogated person saying some variation of "Maybe I should call a lawyer,"(without actually saying "I want a lawyer") whereupon Sharon tells them they ''can'', but this is their last chance to make a deal before going to trial.

* AmoralAttorney: Zigzagged - there are some who're in it for the money, and some attorneys, like David Ahmed, who are genuinely motivated by a sense of idealism and principles. There's also one lawyer who, upon realising that his brother killed two kids with poisoned drugs and framed his wife, immediately calls him out and refuses to help him.

** Sharon was slowly shown to have good sides on ''Series/TheCloser'', and that's only gotten clearer now in Major Crimes due to her having to actively earn the trust of the team ''and'' deal with Rusty. It's also becoming evident that not only did she learn a thing or two from having to monitor Brenda and her crew for three years, but she's also beginning to take on some of the very same characteristics that she'd once found so exasperating.

* DisappearedDad: Rusty never knew his father because his mother said he ran off before Rusty was born. [[spoiler: Once the team finds Rusty's father, however, he explains that he had no idea Rusty existed and expresses an interest in getting to know his son.]] Also happens with Sharon's kids, as their father is largely absent from their lives - he hasn't spoken to either of his kids in five years.

* NoSympathy: Rusty gives his biological father absolutely no sympathy even before he has met the man. Accusing him of abandoning him despite it has been stated (every time he brings this up) that his father never even knew he existed, keeps accusing him that he will abandon him before he has even met him face to face, and calls him out on being late to a meeting despite the fact that he just found out about his son and it wouldn't be easy to just uproot his entire life just to spend time with him. One can almost not hold it against him when he smacks Rusty after he went out of his way to introduce him to his fiancee and her two young daughters and Rusty gives them a BrutalHonesty statement of his history before meeting his dad. [[note]] Rusty told girls not older that 8 that he was a homeless male prostitute.[[/note]] If anything one could say it was the [[TheLastStraw breaking point]].

* OverlyNarrowSuperlative: In "Tourist Trap", an episode of ''Badge of Justice'' which "Lieutenant Mike" [Tao] co-wrote wins a Platinum TV Choice Award, for Best Teleplay for [''deep breath''] Non-Serialized 60-minute Episodic Police Procedural on Basic Cable!



* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Dr. Joe [[spoiler:Rusty's therapist. He is kind and perceptive enough to help Rusty. And when Raydor tried getting him to spill the confidential information Dr. Joe knows, first by being an officer of the law and then his legal guardian, Dr. Joe politely states the exact legal requirements to force him to break confidentiality (getting a court order and Rusty's written approval, respectively) and then leaves before Rusty might get the wrong idea about what they were talking about - but not before suggesting that Raydor simply ''talk'' to Rusty]].

* StatingTheSimpleSolution: As noted earlier, [[spoiler: Raydor attempts to get Dr. Joe to breach confidentiality on his sessions with Rusty, first as the police officer in charge of his safety, then as his legal guardian. Dr. Joe shoots her down on both approaches, and suggests a simpler approach - just talk to Rusty and ask him how he's doing with Dr. Joe.]]

** This also seems to be going on for Raydor and Flynn - she calls him Andy to calm him down or get his attention, and he's started to privately call her Sharon to comfort her after they attended his daughter's wedding together. [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial It wasn't a date.]]
