Production NotesEdit

This was the third episode of the first season to air. However, this was the fourth episode of the series filmed. The presentation order of the episodes was reordered so that this episode would air before Killshot. The portion of the press release detailing the credits for the episode mistakenly listed the credits for the previous episode.
