* RetroactiveRecognition: Why is [[PacificRim Hercules Hansen]] dressed as a biker and trying to kill Jake? Guess losing Chuck must have hit him harder than we thought.

* {{Tearjerker}}:
** Leslie breaking down after [[spoiler:she ends things with Callum.]]
** [[spoiler:Jake and Rose racing to get Malachy (who's been shot) to the hospital. Even the weather is grim and dismal. The moment after Malachy gasps that he loves Rose (and always will) is just ''heartbreaking''. Rose looks absolutely terrified and begs Jake to hurry. Thank ''God'' Malachy got better.]]
** The end of season five has the entire Doyle family [[spoiler: broke thanks to Sloan robbing them]], and Jake [[spoiler: digging possibly dead Leslie out of a grave, and subsequently arrested for killing one of her exes]]. All while "Say Something" one of the most heartbreaking songs of the year, plays in the background.
** In season six, Sloan admitting [[spoiler:that she's been conning the Doyles and that she isn't actually Jake's daughter.]]

Added DiffLines:

* IdiotPlot: The episode "Blood Work" is full of such holes, as Jake acts surprised when Leslie tells him she's undercover even though Hood showed Jake the file (did he think she'd just suddenly become a druggie?) and then Leslie provides an alibi for Taylor by saying she'd been watching him all day... except if that were the case, wouldn't she have known about Taylor kidnapping and torturing Jake? Even if she chose not to blow her cover by rescuing him, she shouldn't have been surprised to see his marked up face.

** Sloan. She's been getting a lot of hate from fans lately who feel she's taking over the show. She came out of nowhere, was revealed to be [[spoiler:Jake's daughter]], is gorgeous, smart, sarcastic... One reviewer commented that the show seemed to be becoming "Republic of Sloan". There are also complaints that she seems to be the ReplacementScrappy to Tinny, as she shares a lot of similarities to Tinny in the early seasons.

** Why is [[Series/TheStrain Mr. Quinlan]] getting smacked around by some random thug and becoming Jake's uncle-in-law? Isn't he a badass half-vampire?

* EvilIsSexy: Kevin Crocker, as played by [[http://wpmedia.arts.nationalpost.com/2012/05/gross.jpg%3Fw%3D620 Paul Gross]]. Oof.
** Subverted a bit in that he isn't exactly evil, just... well, he's always on his own side and not exactly the most moral of folks.

Added DiffLines:

* AssPull: Some saw the reveal that [[spoiler:Sloan wasn't actually Jake's daughter]] to be this, as it contradicted certain earlier scenes such as [[spoiler:Sloan realizing that she and Jake looked very similar, and her secrecy in getting the [=DNA=] testing done (as well as her shock when she saw the results) - her later telling Jake that it had been a faked test just seems awkwardly shoehorned in.]]

** She also got very {{tsundere}} over Des' relationship with Chandra, eventually culminating in his [[spoiler:breaking up with her]], and is showing hints of {{yandere}}-ness.
** Thankfully, she's been RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap as of season four.
