Boyd Crowder's pic

Can we get a pic of Boyd that's ac5ually Boyd and not Shane from The Shield.. I uploaded one where he's pretty much in the exact same position pointing a gun. TheNarrator 06:30, November 21, 2011 (UTC)

Character TemplateEdit

I added a "Status" and "Cause of Death" section for the infobox. I saw it done on the 24 Wikia and I think it helps since we won't have to put Deceased beside someone's age.

Episode SubnavEdit

Can we add s4 to the Episode subnav? Sorry - I'm not sure how to do it.Fakerton (talk) 14:19, February 27, 2013 (UTC)

I think only the admins can edit the subnav because I can't figure it out either.

Good call. Posted on Opark 77's page.  Fakerton (talk) 19:36, March 7, 2013 (UTC)

Surname RedirectsEdit

I added redirects for characters such as Ellstin Limehouse, Robert Quarles, and Wynn Duffy that are commonly referred to by their last names by fans and on the show. If there are any that I have missed, feel free to let me know.
