* AngerBornOfWorry: The whole team towards Nate when he takes on a huge risk by himself [[spoiler: by tricking them, kidnapping Callen, stealing explosives, and making them believe he's gone to the dark side]].



* BlackWidow: The nickname of a notorious thief whose business and romantic partners have a habit of dying once her jobs are complete.



** Played straight when the team goes to a foreign country; fortunately most of those countries look like deserts.



** [[spoiler: Granger tried not to be this to his daughter "Jennifer" but she claims she didn't care either way about "the voice on the telephone".]]



* EmptyQuiver: [[spoiler: In the two parter "Out Of The Past"/"Rude Awakenings". A Russian arms dealer is looking for old Soviet sleeper agents who allegedly have nuclear bombs in American cities. At the end of the two parter, he has at least ''three'' bombs]].

** Fans are disserved again when Eric theorizes that [[ShipperOnDeck Granger is romantically involved with suspected North Korean spy "Jennifer Kim"]], who is young enough to be his daughter [[spoiler: and is in fact his ''actual'' daughter]]. Nell, who has no idea why Granger is so interested in the spy, quickly shoots that theory down.



* LoveMakesYouEvil: Nate and his "girlfriend", a thief known as the BlackWidow who does jobs for terrorists and has a habit of killing her partners to tie up loose ends. [[spoiler: Not really, he was undercover.]]



** Granger seems to do this to a suspected spy by implying he knew her mother (also a spy, though [[EvilParentsWantGoodKids he says she wouldn't have wanted her daughter in the same line of work]], not that their government cared), though it could just be psychological warfare. [[spoiler: though he has been taking some unusual leaves of absence...]]

[[spoiler: though he has been taking some unusual leaves of absence... It's later confirmed that "Jennifer Kim" is indeed Owen's daughter, with the twist that she currently doesn't know where her mother is.]]



** There's been two moles (one was captured and the other is currently at large as of 2016) and Hetty is really getting tired of this.



** Officially [[OverlyLongName inverted]] when [[spoiler: Callen gets new credentials with his real, really long name on it (Hanna jokes that he's amazed it fit)]].



* StockholmSyndrome: What the team suspects may have happened to Nate when he hooks up with a notorious thief nicknamed The BlackWidow and tricks the team to steal explosives. [[spoiler: He hadn't, but they were still angry that he took such an enormous risk by himself.]]



** [[spoiler: Jada, the warlord's sister who Hanna honey-trapped,]] also reappears [[spoiler: and chooses to return to her brother even knowing he'll torture her to death for betraying him]]. Although [[spoiler: she's being tracked so it's possible she could survive]].
