* ABNegative: Averted in a case where it ''shouldn't'' have been in "Living Proof", when Maura declares that a type A pregnant woman couldn't be the biological mother of the type O baby she was carrying. Type A or B people can carry the O blood type as a recessive allele; to rule her out as the baby's genetic parent, she'd need to be type AB.

** Early episodes also feature Jane's neighbor Marissa, who knows Jane well enough to come check on her when she's having a bad day. Also Korsack has much thicker Boston accent and a much more antagonistic relationship to Frost.

** As well as the LiteralCliffhanger in the mid-season finale, when Jane jumped off a bridge in an effort to save the DrivenToSuicide suspect who had fallen off--just as Jane managed to talk him out of jumping by telling him that she believed his claims of innocence (she'd found definitive proof that he was being framed). [[spoiler: While it was highly unlikely that they'd kill off one of their titular characters, the actor playing the suspect--JamieBamber--is a ChronicallyKilledActor, so his status was iffy until the next premiere]]

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Rizzoli is a thoroughly unlikeable secondary character in the first book in the series, while Isles doesn't even exist, and she herself is a minor character in the second book. Jane's mother also completely ignores her while doting on her brother before doing a 180 into a MyBelovedSmother to Jane.

* BabiesMakeEverythingBetter: In the first two books of the series, it's established that Jane doesn't particularly like children and is she isn't happy to learn that she's pregnant in the third book. But by the book's end, after a talk with her mother, she does a complete 180, marries the baby's father, and despite some initial anxiety typical of a first-time parent, is a loving mother.

* CaliforniaDoubling: The show is so obviously filmed in LA it borders on embarassing. [[MisplacedVegetation Frequent shots of palm trees, which are literally unable to survive in Boston's climate]], buildings almost all being built in an architectural style that was developed decades after most of the city was built, streets in an orderly layout that simply does not exist in a city that pre-dates urban planning, and the near complete absence of Boston accents in the cast make for a setting that amounts to an Informed Location.
* CallBack: Oh, man, "I'm Your Boogey Man" is made of this trope. [[spoiler:Somebody puts a road flare in front of Jane's apartment building, indicative of how she scarred Hoyt in "See One, Do One, Teach One."]] Later, we find that that somebody is a kidnap victim who [[spoiler:Hoyt tortures to the point of suffering Stockholm Syndrome (not to mention he killed her abusive husband). Having gotten Frankie, Jr., to fall in love with her, she captures both Rizzoli siblings. While Jane tries to explain to the victim that Hoyt doesn't love her and is just using her to get Jane,]] she lets her guard down long enough for a struggle to ensue between herself and Frankie, Jr., for the gun. While they are both down on the ground, Frankie, Jr., gets the gun and [[spoiler:kills her with two shots to the chest, even though his wrists were duct taped. In "See One, Do One, Teach One," Jane and Hoyt's apprentice were on the ground going for a gun. Jane got to it first and, with her wrists duct taped, she killed the apprentice with two shots to the chest]].

* CatchPhrase: Amongst the obscenely rich Fairfield family, "Brothers don't kill brothers." [[spoiler:Garrett Fairfield, Maura's ex-boyfriend, obviously thinks half-brothers aren't protected by this saying]].

** Frankie once had a girlfriend that ran out on him [[GoldDigger sometime after he bought her a car]]. Understandably both Jane and Angela are not fond of her, and when she shows up again with a little girl in tow, they want proof that the girl in question really is Frankie's. Jane smuggles out a plastic cup to use for DNA testing, and Angela sneaks out something else. Eventually they learn Frankie himself already ordered a paternity test - and it turns out that he isn't the father.
