They eventually get him out but upon returning there are people in Miami who will do whatever they have to, to get the President. Even threatening or intimidating people Crockett and Tubbs work with.

Sonny Crockett: What you doing here? Figured you'd be halfway to New York by now.
Det. Ricardo Tubbs: Everything always takes longer than you think.
Sonny Crockett: Well we had one hell of a run, didn't we partner.
Det. Ricardo Tubbs: Yeah we sure did Sonny.
Sonny Crockett: So you really gonna go back up to the big bad Bronx?
Det. Ricardo Tubbs: Yeah it looks that way. How about you?
Sonny Crockett: I don't know. Somewhere further south, somewhere where the water is warm, the drinks are cold, and I don't know the names of the players.
Sonny Crockett: I'm gonna miss you man.
Det. Ricardo Tubbs: I'm gonna miss you too ...

Lousy wrap up to a great series!!
7 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

Miami Vice for all intended purposes ran out of gas at the end of the fourth season with the exception of the completion of the 3-part arc in which Sonny Crockett lost his memory and became a murdering thug which they should have stretched the fourth season to include Season five was complete garbage and the **Freefall** finale is reduced to a 10 minute clip scene at the end, and even to my enemies I wouldn't recommend watching this **Freefall** garbage as this is **Tired Vice** Without a doubt Miami Vice was the show to watch in the 80's, but you can only compare Miami Vice season five with Wiseguy season four, obviously somebody thought it was a good idea What a waste!!
