I was surprised when the gang opened fire with so little time left in the show. I was picturing more of a protracted standoff in the next episode. Hank and Gomie getting to cover without being shot full of holes was hard to believe...
The shootout wasn't very well staged. Realistically, even with the short time remaining in the episode, Hank and Gomez should have been dead on the ground with time to spare, unless Todd and his pals are the worst marksmen in history. (Normally, I'm very forgiving of lapses in realism if it contributes to the dramatic impact of a scene, but here it didn't really.)
