Great Episode
27 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While not a great fan of Miami Vice, this episode sticks out not only as one of the best for the series, but one of the best episodes of any series in TV history. The plot line of an old retired Miami Vice detective coming back after having to leave for medical/psych reasons really sticks out. He was predicting what would happen while Crocket and Tubbs were only able to go along for the ride as Det. Hank Weldon led them down an interesting path. He was showing up two of the biggest (for the time) characters and totally stole the show. The way that all of the Miami Vice characters were teamed up with the character of Det. Weldon made this an enjoyable ride. Plus the musical score with Dire Striaghts doing Brothers in Arms makes this episode a 9 out of a 10.
