  • Trivia

    • When Don Eppes arrives at the shooting of the two drug dealers, LAPD Detective Cates tells him the preliminary tests matched the shell casings to Epps stolen Glock. To do so, the recovered shells had to be collected, taken back to a lab and compared under a microscope to the ballistics records on file for Don's Glock. It is not feasible that this would be accomplished is such a short time that police are still at the murder scene with the bodies on the ground.

    • When Colby and David were looking at the driver's license information for Mike Hiller and James Mazzolla, Hiller's address is listed as 6229 Portsmouth Way, Los Angeles, CA, 90021, while Mazzolla's is listed as 344 W Masterly Ct, Los Angeles, CA, 90013. These addresses, particularly the zip codes, are entirely different from each other, despite the fact that Mazzolla and Hiller are next door neighbors.

    • Don has been an FBI agent for 15 years, and worked with David for six years.

    • Charlie's middle name is Edward.
