With the help of TC, Rick, and Dan's sister, he delves more and more deeply into the seamy underworld of smuggling. Finally he confronts a crime lord who both he and Dan had known from their previous tours of duty in Vietnam. Magnum has to deal with this crime boss if he is to establish Dan's innocence. Written by

When Magnum is pursued by the beaten up car, after it goes over the cliff edge, he screeches his Ferrari to a halt, burning rubber from his tyres as he does so, leaving obvious black marks on the tarmac. However, after he drives off again, one of his pursuers climbs back onto the now empty road, which is also clear of tyre marks; it suggests that they filmed the crash, destruction of the car, and the climb back to the road before they filmed the scenes with Magnum.
