Did You Know?


At the construction scene where the dead petty officer's body is discovered, there are portable potties which clearly display, in repeated and prominently edited shots, a business name of "Tenley Rentals." Tenley Rentals does not, however, rent port-a-potties. It is instead a reference to the Tenleytown section of NW D.C. and the town homes rented therein. See more »


The agents find a gun in a sofa bed. While it is referred to three times in the episode as a SIG, it is in fact a Glock 17L (a long-slide Glock pistol). What makes this odd is that the agents' sidearms are SIG pistols, so you'd think they'd know the difference. See more »
