Did You Know?

Goofs

It's apparent from the wardrobe (heavy coats and hats), sparse snow in places and trees without leaves that this episode takes place during the winter months. At 35:52 the scene switches from Spencer and Hawk talking after a car chase/shootout to a scene on a tree lined street, green with leaves, where kids are skateboarding in shorts and t-shirts, some without. Good example of the production companies using stock footage when they can. See more »
