    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (8)

      • The closing shots of the episode were filmed at two different locations on the boardwalk of Hollywood Beach, Florida: a burger shack and an ice cream store.

      • During the junkyard shootout scene, blanks were used in the gun, but the bullets hitting the cars were set off using squibs (small remote explosives) placed throughout the junkyard. Using these devices helps make the shootout look more realistic.

      • During the junkyard scene, it's actually Matt Passmore (Jim Longworth) who hops the fence and not a stunt double. The entire junkyard scene was shot in a real junkyard in the town of Davie, but everything you see — the cars, the school bus, the shed with all of the guns — was created by the set decorating department.

      • Gerry's Sporting Good's store was filmed at a real gun store in Fort Lauderdale, Florida called Arizona Shooting Range & Emporium. Nothing needed to be changed at the store but the signs. All of the guns were real and everything was under heavy guard during the shoot.

      • The home where Blake Wyatt is killed is located on a small secluded strip off Hollywood Beach on Sea Shore Drive. The bullet hole in the window was a special effect. It was placed on a different sheet of glass, which was switched out for the original window during the scene. We then restored the original window for the home owner. When locations are altered, the owner is usually compensated and their property is upgraded from its original condition. This is called being "Film Friendly."

      • During the scene where Shane Wyatt wants to commit suicide the actor who plays him, Bridger Zadina, really hung over the side of the bleachers. But he wore a harness under his clothes and the noose was not real. The show's stunt coordinator, Chick Bernhard, was close by, off camera in case of an emergency.

      • The scene where Longworth searches for Clay Malone's gun stand at the flea market is the Swap Shop. It's has been a drive-in movie theater since the early 1970s but on weekends hosts a flea market.

      • There are a lot of TVs and computer monitors are shown on the show. Everything you see on the TVs are pre-recorded shows that must be cleared by the legal department. This footage is purchased from a playback bank that sells to different TV shows for this effect. The computer monitors are set up almost in the same manner, but the keyboard is a prompter the actor uses to change the screen to make the scene look more realistic.
