* TakingTheBullet: At Brian's wedding their Captain mentions, after drinking a lot, that during a tour of duty in the military a buddy of his took a bullet for him. He still feels guilty, thinking he was the one who deserved to die. [[spoiler: It's implied that the reason Brian survived the final ambush is because Z's body, including his bulletproof vest, was able to shield him from the worst of it. It was likely unintentional because it just happened to be the right angle, but works the same way]].
