* MistakenForCheating: Danny. When one of his rookies shot an unarmed man instead of the armed man who confronted them, she deflected attention from herself by saying Danny was cheating with her and told her to lie. A video from the bar shows her cozying up to Danny and makes Internal Affairs more suspicious,though Danny denies it and insists she came on to him. Lindsay eventually pressures the rookie to admit the truth and clear Danny.

* BallCannon: In "Buzzkill", a man attacks attacks a group of models doing a live billboard display with a tennis ball launcher.

** Mac still has scars from being burned by a hot object after a bomb blast in Baghdad. Granted, we can't spot them when he's swimming in 'My Name Is Mac Taylor', but makeup is really hard to manage during a water scene, so it's justified.(although in the season 9 opener, they did manage to show his bullet wound scar from the season 8 finale in a shower scene) The scenes where he's shirtless in bed with Peyton, though...
