** The show had an arc in Season 4 about a lawyer getting together a class-action lawsuit for mercury poisoning originating from vaccines. The Mackeys were involved, as it could explain Matthew and Megan's autism. The show's stance on this issue is anti-doctor; Vic snaps back against a doctor advising them to get out of the suit and save their money by saying they're covering for each other like cops cover cops. With today's climate of Anti-Vaxxers and the evidence showing vaccines don't cause Autism, watching this arc unfold can be a little grating. Thankfully, they [[AbortedArc don't really go anywhere with it]].

** Shane would qualify as well. He may be an asshole, but there are several moments in the series where you just have to feel for the guy as far as the sheer level of abuse he suffers at the hands Vic Mackey. Not to mention the fact that his entire downward spiral character-arc wise is based upon the fact that Vic Mackey treated him like dogshit when, in the second episode of the series, he went to Vic and admitted feeling regret for the role he played in helping Vic kill Terry.

* NightmareFuel:
** Ronnie Gardocki's ultimate fate, being arrested and made into the Judas Goat for the crimes of the Strike Team. In a situation where being stabbed to death during your first night in county lock-up awaiting trial is considered the LEAST awful thing that could happen to you, the scenerio is made even more horrifying when you consider that Ronnie was the least evil of all of the Strike Team members, meaning his fate is literally a fate worse than death.
** Vic Mackey's confession also counts. Watching Olivia's reaction to Vic telling her that he murdered Terry Crowley, then move onto confessing to even WORSE sins of abuse of authority and greed, you get the reaction of someone realizing that they've been conned into allowing a monster to forever escape punishment for crimes that are beyond the pale of corruption and evil. Also toss in Claudette's reaction, in which she is so utterly broken by her failures and complicity in allowing Vic to continue to get away with his crimes by turning a blind eye towards them, that she can't even bring herself to try and break his immunity for justice, just shame and humiliate him. Even the other federal agent overseeing Vic Mackey's confession is disgusted.

** Vic's confession scene in the show's penultimate episode. After horrifying the ICE agent he's been working for with the laundry list of murders and crimes he's committed over the years - selling out his accomplice/last remaining MoralityPet Ronnie to get full immunity in the process - Vic is reminded that protocol dictates he can't tell Ronnie that he implicated him, or his immunity deal is shot and his confession can be used against him in court. Rather than suddenly panicking at the implications that he can not warn Ronnie to skip town as a means to have his immunity and protect his friend, Vic doesn't show a single sign of remorse. Instead, he tells the agent matter-of-factly that he'll outright lie to Ronnie in order to keep him in play until his arrest, then tells her that he's done much worse things before.

However, when Vic finds out his wife betrayed him to Claudette and Dutch, he tried to tell Ronnie and get him to escape into hiding, but Claudette called him in to inform him of the deaths of Shane and his family, complete with the incomplete suicide note. And when Vic tries to prevent Ronnie's arrest afterwards, [[YouAreTooLate it's too late for him.]]

At the heart of it all, with all the twists and turns and differences and personal issues, stands an oath of dominance between three hungry competitive men and Dean is continually all too aware of it.

Added DiffLines:

*** This even extends to the Shield's breakup: many during the group's run thought Ambrose would be the one to betray the Shield with his insanity taking hold, and WWE even teased going in that direction prior to their HeelFaceTurn in 2014 by having him slowly lose control of his mannerisms and butt heads with Reigns a lot out of ego. A few even believed that Reigns would be the traitor in a "Corporate Champion" role similar to [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]]'s push as a main eventer. After a change in course, however, it would be Seth Rollins chosen to become the Traitorface, selling out to the Authority in a ShockingSwerve that ultimately panned out as part of a master plan to become the top guy in WWE.
