Goofs

When Poncherello goes to bail out Williams, he is seen entering an LAPD building. Prisoners in California are handled by Sheriffs so the LAPD would have no involvement in a CHP arrest.

It is possible that the suspect hasn't yet been arraigned, so he's not technically in jail; he's in a holding cell. Almost all LAPD stations have holding cells. Prisoners aren't transported to county jails (run by sheriff's deputies) until they are arraigned.

Since the suspect was arrested by the CHP, it's unlikely that he would be turned over to the LAPD, yet it's also possible that he was wanted by the LAPD on previous charges or that it simply made more sense to detain him at the closest LAPD station. CHP Central is nowhere near Mulholland Drive. 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.
