The Aftermath - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the first episode of Season 3, "The Aftermath", Ryan's hair is much shorter than it was at the last episode of season 2. Since they arrive at the hospital with a bleeding Trey, we know that this is right after Trey got shot. It doesnt make any sense that Ryan would go get a haircut right after Trey got shot and then go to the hospital with him.
