Detailed Story RecapEdit
Behind the ScenesEdit
- The German title for this episode, "Killerinstinkt", is a straight translation of the English one.
- The police officer who arrests Nick reads him his rights, but does so with the words, "You have the right to remain silent, [...]" from the American "Miranda" caution. In Canada, a different wording is used.
