The Shield: Coyotes

When Lanie's report on the Barn is leaked to the press, everyone suddenly fears for their jobs, including David who's mentioned as the reason for most of the problems. Gilroy skips bail and winds up on Vic's doorstep looking for help, so while Vic and Shane deal with him Lemonhead is forced to show the newest member of the Strike Team the ropes. Meanwhile Claudette faces some of her own demons as she and Dutch try to uncover the culprit behind a possible robbery/homicide and Danny comes to a startling realization.

Episode Notes
This marks the final appearance of John Diehl in the series, as his character is sent south of the border.

Several scenes were cut from the episode due to time, including Vic telling Shane about Tavon's past, and Aceveda's Smear cmmpaign against his opponent. You can find them on the Season 2 DVD.

Episode Quotes
Vic: (Sees Claudette staring at him) Yeah?
Claudette: Just reading the newspaper. Have you?
Vic: Lakers cut it pretty close last night.
Claudette: They're not the only ones.

Dutch: A transexual or a cross-dresser?
Long John: Is there a difference?
Dutch: Yeah, a pretty big one.

Episode Goofs
Watch Claudette's fingers when she's typing a letter to her daughter. She's only taping the keys, not actually punching them.

Vic says that he´s known Gilroy for 15 years, but in a previous episode whilst Gilroy is commenting on their friendship and him betraying Vic, Gilroy says "One bad year in twenty years of friendship, it isn't that bad."

Watch frame by frame when Vic sends Gilroy south. The giant spotlight behind Vic is a pro-light, not a regular light. You can see the tower it's attached to.

When Claudette is talking to Danny, the line "or another cop" is edited in, probably due to bad audio the first time around.
