Lee Rose, who directed "Poseidon Adventure" this season and "Old Ghosts" from Season 2, directed this episode. She's worked on such TV series as Greek, Weeds, and Haven.
The patio scene with Carlos and Colleen in their swim suits was fun for the producers, who had fake script pages written where Carlos was wearing a red speedo. They went so far as to have Carlos Gomez do a fitting with one of our executive producers. Needless to say, he was relieved that it was a joke.
The photos of Jeff as a young boy swimming in Jim's pool were taken from our Season 1 files; they weren't reenacted. The picture of younger Callie with short black hair was taken on set the day before filming, during a "stills shoot."
Former teen heartthrob Edward Furlong, who plays Way N.E. Bey, was in a string of successful movies in the 90s, including Terminator 2: Judgment Day, American History X, and Detroit Rock City. Since then, he's kept busy with roles on TV shows like CSI: NY and smaller, indie films.
That was a real airplane flying over Jim and Jennifer's heads during the scene at the foreclosed property. Matt and Taylor filmed the part where they are running, but we used stunt doubles for the part where they leap and fall to the ground.
The Sovereign Citizens movement was not something made up for this episode. As Colleen Manus pointed out, Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols was a member of the movement. There have been incidents in the U.S. of Sovereign members killing members of law enforcement.
In this episode Jim tries to teach Jennifer Starke how to putt. But in real life, the actress who plays her, Taylor Cole, is an avid golfer.
Fans may recognize actress Lili Mirojnick, who plays arrogant government worker Willow Danson, from her role as Lei in the horror movie Cloverfield.
The bar scene with Carlos and Jim was filmed at the famous Poor House, which is known for its blues and jazz performances. The Native Lager that they drink there is an actual beer brewed and sold in Florida by The Native Brewing Company. Of course, we put water in the bottles instead of beer so that no one got tipsy on the set.
The set decorating department had to build 500 file boxes for the scene at Connie's house. They taped one file folder to the inside of each to give the appearance they were full.
The court house was filmed at the City of Miramar's City Hall.
