Captain Castillo (Edward James Olmos) directs this episode and takes center stage trying to protect an old friend's wife and son. The dramatic ending to this episode lasts 10 minutes and is fun to watch.

Dean Stockwell, who I'll always remember as one the crazy characters in a couple of David Lynch movies in this era ("Blue Velvet" and then "Wild At Heart") plays Castillo's old military partner Jack Gretzky. Also featured is another favorite of mine, the star of "Slege Hammer" himself, David Rasche.

This is a solid episode all the way, a bit different in that Crockett and Tubbs plays supporting roles. I kind of like taking a break from those dudes once in awhile. "Castillo" is a strange guy but always interesting to watch even when he says nothing, which is most of the time.

Good to hear another old pay, too, do the opening song: Bryan Ferry ("Boys and Girls."). The ending song is very different for Miami Vice.
