Despite getting better some fans stopped watching because she wasn't Maggie, and she was written out after four seasons.

** [[WouldHurtAChild Vincent Platt]] from season 3’s "Spider Man" and "Day of Reckoning" is introduced getting his kicks watching police divers fish out the body of a little girl who was kidnapped, raped and murdered, one of his victims, which disgusts Wayne. The police bring him in, but they can't get any evidence out of him so they cut him loose. He immediately kidnaps another girl, and when he's brought in he refuses to help, cries about his rights, then tries to bait Nick into attacking him by describing techniques on kidnapping little children and how sexually appealing they are. When that doesn't work, he tries to assault him. Nick then brings in the photo of Platt's victim, trying to appeal to some form of decency. Platt steals the photo, taunts Nick about the victim, [[CardCarryingVillain declares he doesn't have a conscience]], and brags that the police "will never find the little bitch.” Nick is so infuriated he tries to kill Platt, before becoming disgusted at what he might have done, but it gives Platt the idea to bash himself and make it look like Nick did it; this [[HoistByHisOwnPetard fatally backfires]]
** Ashley Barker from season 12’s "Childs Play” and her boyfriend Luke Knight find young adults to have sex with, by force if they are not willing, then brag about it and Ashley videotapes it and posts it on the Internet. When Luke had picked out a girl, he genuinely liked her. Ashley reacts by using a pair of scissors to stab the girl. She then got Luke to slash her throat but he couldn't, so after he stabbed the victim until he got tired Ashley kept stabbing her even though she was well past dead before she and Luke made Beth (another girl) stab her as well. When caught, Ashley and Luke both mock the victim's mother.

* NightmareFuel: The previews for Child's Play warned that this was the most shocking episode the writers have ever done. They did not disappoint, with the real nightmare not being the rape and butchering of a teenage girl, but the suspects laughing and getting off on it.

* JumpTheShark: Some thought the show would never be the same after [[spoiler: Maggie died.]] Others though the large shake up and serious, graphic and gritty tone taken after [[spoiler: the station bombing]] qualifies.
