When the Bahamian police chief talks to Crockett and Tubbs, the police car he is seen in is not actually a Bahamian police vehicle. It belongs to the U.S. Virgin Island Police Department, as is evidenced by the decal on the door; displaying both U.S. and U.S. Virgin Island flags. See more »

Excellent conclusion to this two-parter
2 March 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Directed by Paul Michael Glaser, part 2 of "Calderone's Return" is a solid affair. With a show as stylish as this, there is no "previously on 'Miami Vice'" recap. Instead, we are plunged into the action and pop-video style flashback sequences accompanied by "Voices" from Russ Ballard.

The search for Calderone takes us to Bimini where Tubbs falls for a beautiful woman, Angelina. Tubbs is dealt a cruel twist of fate and is forced to consider what action to take when Crockett's life is placed in danger. Are his loyalties still with Crockett or are his emotions tied up with Angelina? The episode finishes with Tina Turner's "What's Love Got To Do With It?" rather than the usual end music.

Stylish and satisfying, I'd give this episode an 8.
