This was the pilot episode.
When this epiosde aired it featured commercials for the new episode "Sweet Little Lies" despite the fact it aired in August.
During a commercial break, NBC stated that viewers were watching an all new episode of Crossing Jordan.
Some of the props from City Guys can be seen in this episode. A BJ Armstrong jersey appears in this episode as it did on City Guys. Interesting enough both times were during the final episodes of both shows.
