Production NotesEdit

  • This episode is the first part of the two part pilot for NCIS: RED.
  • Technical error; the Red team uses Glocks, it's common knowledge that NCIS standard issue side arm is the SIG-Sauer which is the case for the regular cast members of NCIS: Los Angeles (with the exception of Deeks who is still an LAPD officer and has used a Beretta 92F) and in the original NCIS.
