Storyline

Crockett and Tubbs along with a couple of other cops were about to make a bust but instead are ambushed and one of the cops is killed. It seems that this was not the first time this happened. It's evident that someone on the inside is giving dealers info on busts. Tubbs then loses it. Later he is approached by a cop who wants him to work with him. The partner of the cop who was killed is determined to find out what happened. And when he sees Tubbs with the cop, he follows him. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Goofs

In the ambulance, the "wounded" officer asks Gina about their surveillance warrants, and she said the prosecutor was talking to the grand jury. This was repeated in a subsequent scene involving the prosecutor and Castillo. In Florida, the grand jury is not involved in that process, as a judge must decide if there is probable cause to issue a surveillance warrant. See more »

Tubbs goes nuts - one of my favourites!
21 February 2010 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This is in my top 10 Miami Vice episodes. Don't read anything about it before you watch it as it has some major surprises in it.

I'm surprised nobody has turned this into a big budget thriller - the plot is so clever and exciting.

If I was going to show an episode of MV to a newbie, this might be the one I pick - it has the Miami flavour throughout, and a tough exciting storyline.

Look out for a young Viggo Mortensen (pre-Lord of the Rings) at the opening scene.

Tubbs-centric episode - one of the best. Lots of red sky and sunny shots of Miami.
