Original air date:  01/04/1985





The episode starts off with a shot that reminds me of Hawaii Five-o. A passenger jet landing close to the camera. This appears to have been filmed at Miami International but I have not confirmed this yet 100%. Then we go inside the airport, only it is not a real airport. At least most of this scene was filmed in the Miami Free Trade Zone dressed up to look like Miami International. NW 107th Ave. at NW 25th Street, Doral, FL. The scene near the end where Eddie is running and Crockett is on the ground was filmed at Miami International.

Crockett is working hard and making new friends, while Tubbs is sweating like he has a hormone problem.

Crockett has counter help. Denise tells Crockett that the kid she just serviced was Eddie Rivers. He did not have a reservation and paid cash for a ticket to Bogota. C+T try to talk with them and they run.  Filmed at the Miami Free Trade Zone.

The kids get away and that ends the teaser. The opening montage was the same as in episode 9, Glades.

After the opening montage we see Crockett buying a hotdog from a street vendor. This was filmed outside the Dade County Courthouse on W. Flagler Street at the S.E. Corner of the court house.

Crockett plays the old, toss the hot dog with everything, into the dirt bags convertible. His signature move.

Then we see Crockett and Tubbs on a stakeout. I originally believed this was filmed on SW 8th Street at approximately #40. Now I know differently thanks to airtommy at Miamiviceonline.com. He was able to deduce that this was filmed on location on SE 7th Street at approximately # 31, east of South Miami Avenue. Thanks airtommy for the dedicated work and sharing your find with all Vice fans.

It cuts away to see Eddie and Louis at the airport.  This was filmed at Miami International outside terminal E.

Then it goes back to the stakeout. Dumbo walks into the lab with a lit cigarette and blows the whole place up. Filmed on location east of S. Miami Ave. on SE 7th Street in Miami.

Then we go to Bogota.  Actual location unknown.

Then we see Crockett and Tubbs driving westbound on the MacArthur causeway. Then they end up at the Grove Cinema in Coconut Grove. Grand Ave. at Commodore Plaza. This is now a post office.

Next we go to a boxing gym. This was filmed at the old Coast Guard sea plane hangar in Coconut Grove next to the Coconut Grove Convention Center which is now the Burn Notice studio.

Then there was allot more green while now there are allot more high-rises.

They follow Louis Martinez to South Beach. We see them drive by the Waves and Revere on Ocean Dr. at 11th St.  The Revere is sadly gone, torn down.

Past the Amsterdam Palace now called Casa Casuarina where Leon lived in the Pilot and C+T drove by in the Little Prince.

Past the Flambeau Apartments also torn down with the addition to the Victor in it’s place. Then past the Victor which we see in many more episodes of Miami Vice plus in Burn Notice; episodes 8 Wanted Man, 41 Enemies Closer and 55 Blind Spot.

Then they see him run into the Senator. Sadly this was also torn down and replaced with nothing but a small parking lot. This location also ties in with the Burn Notice episode, Wanted Man. The Senator sits on the site of the parking lot where Fiona has some fun returning the no longer wanted man to the other bounty hunter at the end of the episode. The Senator was located on Collins Ave. at 12th Street. On the N.E. Corner of the intersection.

Then they run into Rivers. They arrest him which takes us to the O.C.B.(Greenwich Studios set, Stage A)

From there we go to a restaurant and pick up Sloan. This was filmed on the second floor of the Bal Harbour Shops just north of the mall’s center.

Next, we return to the Senator. There have been some who have wrongly reported that the Senator’s location was Collins and 13th Street and that it was replaced by a parking garage. That is not accurate. They are off by a block. Any question of it’s location is removed with the screen capture below. As you look out the window you can see the Marlin hotel in the immediate background across Collins Ave.

Then we return to the O.C.B.

Then we return to the boxing gym. From there we return to the O.C.B. where they plan for the raid on the main lab and Lt. Castillo gives Crockett and Tubbs the Milk Run, bring Louis and Eddie to the airport.  Easy peasy they have earned a break.

This leads us to the safe house. Location unknown.

Then we go to the airport. The establishing exterior shot is of Miami International.

The interior scenes were shot at the Miami Free Trade Zone.

Eddie gets shot with a 12 gauge deer slug.

The episode ends there.
