"Today is one of our days when we're grinding pretty hard because we're in three different locations," King says during the shooting of the "Heat" episode, as the LAPD comes across the thoroughly dead body of victim Rick Dawson. "The entire crew and everyone that needs to be there has to travel to three different locations in one day. That's not happening in one day on most episodics."

"Southland: The Complete Fifth and Final Season" is available on DVD Tuesday.
