  • Trivia

    • This episode does not have any boxes at the end like there usually is.

    • After Victor Aruz flees the scene of the first attempt on his life, the shooters call 911 to report the car Aruz fled in as stolen, and they give the license plate number. However, in New York City, stolen cars can only be reported in person and with proof of ownership. This prevents pranksters or vengeful people, such as angry spouses, from falsely reporting a vehicle as stolen to cause problems for the real owner.
