Added DiffLines:

* TrivialTitle: The final episode is full of drama, but is deliberately given the unusually mundane title "Occurrence Reports" from the folder of ordinary day-to-day paperwork that [[spoiler: Reid]] picks up at the end.

* YouCalledMeXItMustBeSerious: Jackson calls Susan by her real name, Caitlin, when trying to defend his actions in investing in a doomed mining scheme. Susan is having none of it, though. She uses his real name, Matthew, as she calls him out.

She uses his real name, Matthew, as she calls him out. In later episodes it's seen that they have a tendency to do this when circumstances are bad (which is more and more as the series continues), making them walking illustrations of this trope.

Added DiffLines:

* KilledOffscreen: [[spoiler: Jackson]] in the final episode. Could even be considered a BusCrash, given the circumstances of [[spoiler:his]] departure.

* AndTheAdventureContinues: The last episode, "What Use Our Work", ends with one of the officers coming in and announcing that a man has locked himself up with four hostages and is threatening to kill them if he sees any cops. The scene ends on Reid getting up from his chair and turning to Drake and Jackson with a simple, "Shall we?"

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: Shine]] and [[spoiler: Thatcher]] in series 5. The former is at least foreshadowed, but the latter is a WhamShot.

* ChildrenAreInnocent: Deconstructed in "In My Protection", where we're introduced to a gang of child criminals who commit various crimes, including brutal murder. But they were led / brainwashed by an [[TheFagin adult man]]. The trope is averted even harder in the third season episode "Your Father, My Friend", where we meet a maybe 13- or 14-years-old boy who apparently makes a pretty good living[[note]] He wears a fancy suit. [[/note]] locking up young girls to sell them to groups of men. [[note]] Also, considering that he already has a file in Reid's archive as a known pimp selling "the young", that boy must have been doing this for some time, despite his own youth. [[/note]] (And he was going to rape at least his current victim by himself, too.)



** In the last season, Reid and Jackson hold a former colleague and current underling of [[spoiler: Detective Inspector Shine]] at gunpoint and strip him naked (which would nowadays be considered sexual assault) and then publically humiliate him by tying him onto a horse and making him ride through Whitechapel - all just to send [[spoiler: Shine]] a message. In the show, everyone laughs about it and even the victim [[spoiler: switches sides to help Reid and Jackson shortly later.]] Though it's unclear if this was meant to be ''deliberate'' values dissonance, or if it's just a case of double standards on part of the writers, who thought this was funny...

Added DiffLines:

* WouldHurtAChild: Reid would, if the child is a pubescent sociopath who captured [[spoiler: his daughter]] and was just about to sell her to be gang-raped. In fact, he will [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique half drown]] that boy to find her, not even bothering to try threatening him first, which probably would have been sufficient. Drake, on the other hand, has more scruples. (At least at that point in his CharacterDevelopment.)
--> '''Reid''': Fear not, Inspector, I will not kill him. Not yet.
