When we last left this program, the secret military unit had been virtually dismantled — not by bombs, but by politics. Coexec producer Eric L. Haney: ”I said, ‘Let’s destroy the place and see what happens…. You can say it’s a political attack. Who in the government has this sort of power? This is different than the normal enemy the unit [usually] confronts. If it’s someone with guns, they know what to do. But if it’s a political power, it’s an alien enemy to them.” But what about Max Martini’s Mack and Demore Barnes’ Hector, in jail in the finale? ”It gets worse,” says Haney. ”This is not exact, but think Guantánamo.” Yikes! Maybe CBS could send James Woods’ Shark lawyer over to bust him out.
