** Case 6: [[spoiler: Just when the team thinks that they've straightened things out in Europe, Chief Ripley is shot with a poison dart and seemingly killed, forcing the team to start their quest around the world.]]
** Case 9: It's revealed that instead of defeating individual district villains like previous seasons, this season will focus on a global organization called SOMBRA, and that they'd already had a run-in with them via the Promethians.
** Case 12: [[spoiler: The suspects in this case put several Bureau members' lives at great risk, especially the BigBad. For the first time ever, a suspect becomes an official member of the main police force, and Chief Ripley is revealed to have faked her death to trick The Sword.]]

* NoWarrantNoProblem: There's enough warrantless searches to keep an entire Internal Affairs department busy. One of the more blatant examples is in Grimsborough Case 4 -- a suspect refuses to let Jones and your [=PC=] search her apartment without a warrant. Jones tells her that demand is "cute", and you and Jones search the apartment anyway.

* WeAreEverywhere: SOMBRA. Think the criminal organizations from previous seasons are bad enough? They are just in America (as far as the game tells), SOMBRA is ''global''.

* SuddenlyShouting: In case 8 of Pacific Bay, the player character is implied to lose their patience and yell at Frank when he's reluctant to help with a clue.
--> '''Frank''': Alright, alright, I'll help out, don't yell! That bag looks pretty straightforward, let's have a look inside.



* UnexpectedCharacter: After being sentenced with a life imprisonment without a possibility of parole, you'd think that [[spoiler:Alden Greene]] would finally disappear for good, [[spoiler:especially since this is not the first time he managed to bail out from prison]]. But no, he had to come all the way from [[spoiler:Grimsborough]] to once again disrupt the player character's lives.
