Background information and notes

  • This episode is notable because it will be the first time that Det. Eames and Det. Nichols team up for a case. The real reason is that Julianne's second pregnancy during the filming complicated her work and Kathyrn stepped in to fill in her role.
  • Goren is mentioned in this episode to be on a police case in Tennessee.
