* SecretKeeper: He is one of the few who knows about Tilda's true parentage, since he was Mariah's confident in high-school.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatTheHellHero: He is one to regularly ream out Misty when she breaches protocol, like secretly talking to Arturo Rey after Arturo lawyers up, or going to crime scenes without authorization. While he'd like to suspend Misty for her constant insubordination, he can't because the brass at One Police Plaza have basically declared Misty the department's new public figurehead in light of her heroics at Midland Circle.


** She has less headbutting with Misty in season 2, in part thanks to Misty's maturing.
* SignificantWardrobeShift: She loses her curly hair between seasons 1 and 2, concurrent with her promotion to Deputy Chief.



* DirtyCop: He's secretly trying to negotiate with Mariah, and also has Comanche as an off-the-books informant.

* RankUp: He is promoted to Detective in between seasons 1 and 2.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Bailey's promotion to Detective in season 2 essentially sees him taking over Scarfe's former post as Misty's partner, and filling Scarfe's role in being there for Misty as she adjusts to her new bionic arm.

* ActorSharedBackground: Just like her actress, Nandi is pretty proficient in singing Broadway show tunes.



* TooDumbToLive: Yeah, not only it's very stupid of her trying resisting arrest and trying to go toe to toe against Misty, consider she has a dozen of guns trained on her by the ESU at the aircraft hanger; luckily none of them opened fire on her for assault.

* WeirdnessMagnet: His constant involvement with Matt's, Karen's and Foggy's escapades puts him firmly into this. He even lampshades Karen's tendency to get involved in deadly situations at one points.



* ChekhovsGunman: When he first appears, he's just some random cop Kilgrave pulled off the street and ordered to kill Trish and then himself. After Jessica saves them, Simpson unexpectedly returns to Trish's place on his day off to make amends, and the two begin a relationship and he vows revenge against Kilgave with his unique resources. It's unknown if Kilgrave was aware of Simpson's background when he enslaved him.

It's unknown if Kilgrave was aware of Simpson's background when he enslaved him.



* FeelNoPain: Thanks to his pills. As a result of this, he doesn't notice he burned his arm disposing of Clemons's body, and so doesn't cover it up, which gives Jessica an additional clue that he's not right in the head.
* {{Foil}}: To Jessica. They both suffer from trauma caused by having been forced by Kilgrave to do horrible things. However, while Jessica isn't exactly dealing with her issues ''well,'' she's managed to remain functional by becoming a cynical, [[PragmaticHero pragmatic]] AntiHero. Simpson tries to remain an idealistic, heroic figure, and succumbs to BlackAndWhiteInsanity as a result - essentially, Jessica bends, and he refuses to bend and breaks.
