Storyline

Crockett and Tubbs are working on nailing a Bolivian drug dealer. When something goes wrong at the meeting, the Bolivian loses something very important to him and he won't deal until it's returned to him. They discover that an old man who was at the meeting has it. He tries to sell it back but the Bolivian won't agree to that. One of his people tries to get it back but the old man proves to be tough. Crockett and Tubbs offers to act his intermediary but the old man insists on being involved. They later learn that the old man is a Texas Ranger. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Decent episode...but who's doing continuity?
4 August 2007 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Considering Crockett's black Ferrari Daytona was blown to smithereens in episode 2 it's hard to explain how it shows up in this episode. Zito's beard appearing and disappearing from one episode to the next was an issue before, but this one takes the cake.

Another issue that's really getting under my skin are the A-Team like shootouts where the bad guys couldn't shoot straight to save their lives. One of the greatest strengths of Miami Vice was it's realism, but with more and more studio sets and silly shootouts popping up, I'm starting to lose respect for this series as I revisit it for the first time since I was a kid.

All in all, this is decent episode with a great cameo by Willie Nelson.
