EPISODE 34



Original air date: 01/10/1986.

The episode starts out at an aggregate quarry. We see a black Porsche speed down a dirt road into a back area of the quarry where he approaches a black Corvette only to be killed. He is then buried in his car. This was filmed at Tarmac now Titan America Cement, in Medley Florida. The bridge you see in the background is the Florida Turnpike.

Goof:  Ted Nugent is suppose to be the only living person around but we see two front loaders dumping sand on the Porsche at the same time.

Then we see the standard season two opening montage.

After the montage we are at a Miami Beach hotel. Crockett and Tubbs are on the job despite being the hottest day of the year and being slightly distracted by the scenery. This was filmed at what is now the Sheraton Four Points Hotel, 4343 Collins Avenue. At the time it was the Hotel Barcelona. We have seen this location used by Vice before in the episode, Lombard.

Sadly the exact section of decking where Crockett and Tubbs sat and Crockett showed great immunity is long gone. Only the side section remains. Callie approached on this side area.

Next we go back to the O.C.B. (set) where the A.C. is not working. Then we return to the Barcelona to track down the Bartender. The bar was located just inside the front door in the hotel’s lobby. When Crockett walks Callie out back and onto the beach they are at the rear of the Hotel Barcelona.

Then we see Crockett walk Callie up the beach and into a safe house on the beach. This was filmed at 7747 Atlantic Way, Miami Beach.  This house has either had a major addition placed on it or was torn down and replaced with a new beach house since Vice filmed here.

Goof: As Crockett is standing in the bedroom (we see this same bed used several times through out vice on different sets for example in #8 The Great McCarthy) waiting for Callie to come out of the shower, the hand of a crew member is seen reaching out from behind the bed and grabs the string connected to the ceiling fan. He yanks on it twice turning the fan on. Guess they weren’t alone after all.

Then we see an exterior establishing shot of the O.C.B. This footage is from Out Where The Buses Don’t Run.

Then we go inside where we meet Agent Dalva. Filmed on set at Greenwich Studios.

Then we see Crockett and Tubbs talking on the beach just north of the Blue Waters from the episode, The Maze.

On their way to the safe house they pass by this beach house.

Next we see them driving with Agent Dalva toward Key Biscayne on Virginia Key passing the marine stadium.

Then they pull into a parking garage. Location unknown.

Then we go to Callie’s hotel room, #960. By the look of it this was probably a set at Greenwich Studios but it also may have been at the Alexander Hotel based on the the door locks and the windows. Location unknown.

Then we go to the Rickenbacker Causeway bridge with it’s construction almost complete. Here they try to scam Clemente but it does not work. We however; get some nice views of mid 80’s Miami.

Then we go to the O.C.B. (set) where they get 1 more chance to deliver Clemente’s sister, Maria.

Then it is back to Callie’s hotel room. Location unknown. It then cuts back to the O.C.B. where Crockett is trying to call her.

Then we go to Clemente’s sister, Maria’s place. This was filmed at the Key Biscayne Hotel and Villas.  # 70, 701 Ocean Dr., Key Biscayne.

Then we see Crockett return to the beach house. Callie is there waiting to continue the scam.

Then we cut to hotel room. He is out on the balcony enjoying the view and the weather. This was filmed at the Alexander Hotel, 5225 Collins Ave.

Callie is inside the room as he walks in. The exterior does not match up with what we just saw, indicating that the interior is likely a set at Greenwich Studios.

Then we go to the O.C.B. (Set) where Crockett gets ready to face Callie’s scam.

From there we go to an industrial site. Here we find Clemente’s messenger. This was filmed at Tarmac building S-15, 11000 NW 121 Way.

Then we go to US Precast located at 8351 NW 93rd Street. Here Maria Rojas stabs her brother and his sniper shoots her.

Then we cut back to the Quarry area at Tarmac. Here Crockett gets helped by Zito and they put Charlie Basset down.

It cuts back to US Precast where Brother and sister lay dead. Castillo looks down on sleazy opportunist Agent Dalva, not having to say one word but gets his message across. Classic Castillo.

Then we cut back to Tarmac where they find more of Charlie’s victims.

Then we see Crockett return to the beach where Callie is playing in the sand.  She is taken into custody but her days of playing men are clearly not over.  Not enough is seen to say for sure exactly where this was filmed on the beach.
