Episode Notes
The last few episodes got major publicity, not just for the fact that Chiklis was coming back up for Emmy consideration, but for the fact that many of the story lines offended several groups.

When it was revealed that Danny was being fired, fans wrote the show in outrage. However, when it was revealed that she is still a starring character in Season 3, it was soon revealed that Shawn Ryan did it just to get a rise out of the fans. As he put it -- "Hey, it did air on April Fools Day. They should have caught on."

The original opening showed Vic getting booked and locked-up, but was taken out because Shawn Ryan ended the previous episode with Vic being arrested and wanted to start the final episode off with a bang -- hence why the beginning was changed to Shane pounding on the door. The original opening can be found of the Season 2 DVD.

Episode Quotes
Vic: What were you thinking?
Shane: Hey, where I come from, when a guy's lady jams him up, his buddies go have a talk with her.
Vic: Not in the middle of the night, Jethro.

Vic: Let's remember where this Armenian money's coming from. Prostitution, drugs, robberies-- and the rest of this cash is just gonna finance more of the same. They didn't earn it, I don't feel bad about taking it.

Chorekian: I am Armin Chorekian.
Shane: Cletus... Van Damme.

Episode Goofs
In the scene where the Strike Team go to Raidohead's place. When you see Radiohead come out from a room and Vic and his team goes inside, the camera follows Vic inside and you can see a cameraman around the corner to the left.

When Julien gets the blanket party, they use rubber clubs again like the first season. You can see the one Jackson uses starting to crack.

There's a bag of money out on the table when Ronnie drops off Shane & Lemonhead, yet the mob just waves him out not thinking twice. Guess they really didn't think he was a problem.
