Did You Know?


"By any means" (title of the final four episodes) is so named, according to series creator and executive producer James Duff, in reference to the fact that Lt. Provenza (G.W. Bailey) is suddenly left in charge of the team, and his approach is very different from that of his predecessor. See more »


In her videotaped message to her family, Sharon refers to Ricky as her first born. But in "Sweet Revenge," Sharon tells Rusty that when she was pregnant with Ricky, Emily told her several times that she didn't want a little brother. That means Emily, and not Ricky, was Sharon's first-born child. See more »
