*CompleteMonster:
** Mandy and Cameron Klinefeld from season 4's "Assume Nothing" put the "unholy" back in UnholyMatrimony. A married couple united by a shared sexual fetish for rape and murder, the pair operate by abducting other husbands and wives, sexually torturing the women while making the men watch, with the ultimate goal of forcing them to MercyKill the women they love. They promise the husbands they can go free if they do this, but [[ILied they're lying]].
** Season 12 ArcVillain Laura Gabriel is a ruthless arms smuggler and BigBadFriend to [[TheLancer Catherine Willows]]. Playing a meek and submissive wife to her [[CorruptCorporateExecutive sleazy private military firm head husband Mark]], she uses this false personality to deflect blame off her and onto him as she funnels his company's weapons to TheMafia and {{The Cartel}}s. When the investigation starts getting too close to the truth, she hires employees of the company to murder her own lawyer and all of his staff; following this, [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness she kills the assassins]] and burns their bodies beyond recognition in order to fake her own death and that of her right-hand man. She intended for an enraged Catherine to [[VigilanteExecution summarily execute her husband]], and placed a contract on Catherine herself to clean up the last remaining loose end, not caring for her old friend in the slightest.

** The FinalBoss of the series, in "Immortality," is a man who uses drugs to force his victims to commit suicide bombings along the Strip for him, sending Vegas into a state of panic. Two years later, the real Strip would see the deadliest mass murder in US history, with sixty people dead including the gunman - [[RealityIsUnrealistic more than the villain kills in the episode]].

* MagnificentBastard:
** The show's first-ever ArcVillain, Paul Millander, eludes the team at every turn, successfully impersonates a ''judge'', and when finally cornered and caught simply decides to kill himself rather than let [[ArchEnemy Grissom]] beat him.
** The killing couple in the BlackComedy episode "Two and a Half Deaths" cover their tracks so expertly that they give an extremely detailed confession ''right to Grissom's face'' and still [[TheBadGuyWins walk]] due to lack of evidence.

* {{Anvilicious}}: The episode centered around internet bullying, though possibly a case where this [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped needs to be brought to the public eye]] but it does get a bit {{egregious}} when Nick basically tries to say anyone who ever looked at the mocking videos, even if they did nothing about it or thought it was in bad taste, deserved to be put to the court system.

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: Creator/{{ABC}} turned the series down with the excuse of it being, [[ViewersAreMorons "Too confusing for the average viewer"]]. Of course, it became a smash hit for Creator/{{CBS}} and the start of the ForensicDrama genre. [[note]] ABC's decision to pass on CSI was one of the factors in Disney's second management shift in 2005. [[/note]]

* SeasonalRot: While not ''bad'' in its later years, the show received a lot more press, ratings, and critical acclaim in its first few seasons (even earning a few Emmy nominations). One could make a case with show growing stale as early as Seasons 6/7, but it was likely Grissom's departure in Season 9 that really accelerated things.

To be fair its hard to avoid going stale when you have to keep making episode for 15 years and the show is locked into a few Emmy nominations).rather strict formula.

** May be due to this series coming from Viacom, the same people behind MTV's [=Sex2K=] series.

* EsotericHappyEnding: "Ch-ch-ch-changes," the 100th episode, becomes this [[FridgeHorror once the viewer remembers]] that [[UnholyMatrimony the villains]] had an adorable little daughter who knew nothing of her parents' misdeeds and is now completely alone in the world, since even her nanny ([[spoiler: who was also her surrogate mom since her mother is transgender and can't have children]]) was arrested for helping the couple cover up their crimes.
