[show]SPOILER: The death of beloved Unit member Hector Williams is still a controversial topic amongst fans to date. None of the cast, including actor Demore Barnes who portrayed Hector Williams, were aware that his character would be killed off until they received the script for the episode. The character was a fan favorite, and the writers and producers chose to kill off Williams to retain an air of believability in the storylines that some times the good guys and heroes do get killed in combat. There is also a significant number of fans who at first believed that Williams was killed off in secret on the orders of Colonel Tom Ryan by an unknown assassin, due to Williams accidentally catching Ryan dead to rights in an affair with Tiffy Gerhardt (Mack's wife) at a hotel they coincidentally all wound up staying at off post. It was theorized that Williams was killed off by Ryan to keep the affair secret, though the idea of Ryan killing off Williams was disproven in the series plot later.
- All the actors had a part time session of learning Spanish and Arabic.
