Just after Crockett calls for Tubbs to give him some covering fire in the climactic shootout, Tubbs fires seven shots (sound-wise) from a revolver, in the time-span of only five muzzle-flashes. See more »
Fresh off the series opener and right out the gate, the show's focusing on the tragic side effects of being a Vice cop. The clothes are flashy, the car's a dream, but Crockett and Tubbs rely on solid backup during an operation. And they walk that line on a daily basis, always at risk of getting in too deep and losing sight of what's important. This is what makes 'Heart of Darkness' resonate.
To that end, Ed O'Neill does a pretty good strung-out cop performance, and there's a sinister undercurrent running throughout all of this. Even so, that's one bitter ending and the seeds of our detectives' mistrust of the Feds are sown here.
