Trivia

Ellen Geer plays Mrs. Williams, who had a son about the same age as Poncherello. The character appears to be too young to have had a child that old, and this is due to her being only 8 years older than Erik Estrada. 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.
