* DesignatedVillain: Bo [=McLaren=] in N.S.F.W. The Police Department is dead set on getting this guy arrested solely because he makes porn with women just as they turned 18, which is the legal age of consent. They treat this guy as if he is a pedophile, fully believing that he '''must''' be sleeping with the girls before they are 18, and constantly harass him to the point he carries every document he needs with him because they pull him into questioning so often and set up a home surveillance network just so he can show he has an alibi. Then a cop goes off the books and gets the newest girl for the porn shoot, which at the time was underage, to be his CI, which is very illegal. But despite the fact Bo is completely cooperative they still continue to treat him as if he is the scum of the earth and they must get him on something. Then how they do arrest him is that they get him on rape since some of the girls took drugs to help them relax before the shoot; and in the eyes of the laws this makes her unable to give consent. They essentially claimed that a girl who has given consent close to a month in advance, agrees to the shoot, and took a drug of their own free will to help them relax, is equivalent to her being comatose. To those who have kept up with the explosion of false rape allegations in the media where a woman who gets drunk, has consensual sex, regrets it the next day, and then claims the guy raped her, this just seems off.

* DesignatedVillain: Bo [=McLaren=] in N.S.F.W. W, to some. The Police Department is dead set on getting this guy arrested solely because he makes porn with women just as they turned 18, which is the legal age of consent. They treat this guy as if he is a pedophile, fully believing that he '''must''' be sleeping with the girls before they are 18, and constantly harass him to the point he carries every document he needs with police dislike him because he pulls barely legal women into pornography and generally acts scuzzy about it, but they're so intent on finding a crime to prosecute him for that it comes across as a bit of a witch hunt. [[spoiler: At least until they pull him into questioning so often and set up a home surveillance network just so find out he can show he has an alibi. Then a cop goes off the books and gets the newest girl for the porn shoot, which at the time was underage, to be his CI, which is very illegal.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Rusty's Father. Was he a guy that only cared about his image or was he a guy that just found out he had a teenaged son and tried to be right by him but did not do a good job. This did not help with the fact that said son was giving him absolutely no breaks, seemed to expect only the worse from a guy who up to that point didn't even know he existed as if the guy abandoned him, seemed to act as if the man was even worse than his mother before having met the man, and practically self sabotage any time he and his father actually spent time together such as telling the man's fiance and her two little girls that he was a male prostitute.

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Rusty's dad, as mentioned in AlternativeCharacterInterpretation. He seemed to be a guy trying to do his best, which wasn't very good, to a son he did not even know existed. This did not help with the fact that said son was giving him absolutely no breaks, seemed to expect only the worse from a guy who up to that point didn't even know he existed as if the guy abandoned him, seemed to act as if the man was even worse than his mother before having met the man, and practically self sabotage any time he and his father actually spent time together such as telling the man's fiance and her two little girls that he was a male prostitute. It also doesn't help that Rusty '''''still''''' tries to help his mother after all she did to him and continues to do to him, but treats his father as an abusive monster when he lost his cool and hit Rusty after he was put through all mentioned above, accumulating into the entire Major Crimes willing to ruin the man's life if he didn't give up his parental rights and promised never to see Rusty again, which after all he has been through one would wonder why he would want to.

* LauncherOfAThousandShips: Take another look at the entry for ShipToShipCombat, and notice that ''every'' pairing on the list involves Sharon Raydor in some capacity. There ''are'' pairings that don't involve her, but they are few and far between.



** And then there was the City Attorney who was introduced in "Two Options", who is pretty much a colossal bitch to everyone, and is only concerned about liability issues.

** Sykes was helped by keeping hold of the bad guy's gun even as he's smashing her head against the pavement--giving her a concussion and dislocated jaw.

** Sykes was helped by keeping hold of the bad guy's gun even as he's smashing her head against the pavement--giving her a concussion and dislocated jaw. By season 4, she's a damn competent detective, bona fide ActionGirl, and has lost her ProfessionalButtKisser tendencies entirely.
