At any point in the season did real world events trigger the slightest script tweak?

GORDON | [The death of] Osama bin Laden was certainly a line that we added, but it was a big one, because it really sort of stood for why this show was a post-Osama bin Laden show.

GANSA | And remember the recent [real-world] plot [to assassinate] the Saudi ambassador? It didn’t influence what we were telling but what we wish we had told, because that was such a great story, the idea that Al-Quaeda would target the Saudi ambassador in Washington, D.C. I wish that had broken a couple of days earlier. - By Matt Webb Mitovich
