Trivia

Even though Poncherello has vivid flashbacks about the crash from years ago, to include his then-girlfriend Elena, no mention is made of the death of his fiancée Vanessa in CHiPs: Head Over Heels (1982), which had aired one week earlier. See more »

Goofs

When the Camaro goes over the hill, there are no cars on the side of the road, and the only vehicles behind it and the Firebird were the CHP motorcycles, yet in the subsequent scene, there are several cars and friends of the racers present. See more »

In Return To Death's Door,a guy is arrested for hill racing.He holds a grudge against Ponch because his brother, Ponch's friend, died while racing him. He blames Ponch for the death of his brother and challenges him to a race on a road popular with racers which involves a deadly curve,which is known to them as the Death's Door.

Ponch tries to persuade a young drag racer who challenges him to leave the sport.Also in this episode,Ponch and Bruce also tries to capture a pair of honeymooners that steal a car.

This episode tries to capitalize on what the show is known for:road chases and featuring a sport in it.The sport involved here is racing.These reasons alone make the show worth watching.
