In episode 7, scene 107.22, Jared Vasquez is driving his undercover police car through a neighborhood street in New York as Michaela hears a heartbeat which either gets softer or louder depending on how close they are to the suspect. If this sounds strange, it’s not. Episode 7, S.N.A.F.U. is one of fans’ favorites.

As Michaela screams to Jared to go faster and to turn here or there, on set J.R. Ramirez isn’t even driving the car. Though Ramirez is behind the wheel, a stuntman in a metal rig on the roof of the car is the one actually driving. Camera rigs had to also be built around the car.

“It truly takes a village to make these awesome episodes come to live every week!” says J.R. Ramirez.
