Although the episode shows as taking place starting on October 20, 2001 (this is the first episode to take place in JAG time after 9-11-01), the only references to the 9-11 attacks are a scene showing heightened security at the JAG HQ and a character mentioning someone was at the World Trade Center. It appears the bulk of the episode was filmed before the attacks took place. See more
