Sonny’s amnesia is gone and now the Vice team can get down to some real work while he’s still hiding out in the glades at an ol’ honky-tonk. Tubbs and Castillo have their eyes set on bringing down someone who stole literal tons of cocaine. In this Castillo heavy episode everything happens you’d expect:
- One of his friends dies after being the sacrificial lamb for the investigation
- Dad murders someone in the name of honor, that he only knows the definition
- Castillo shows zero emotion the entire time
We even get a little hint of Stan’s gambling problem. Melissa spends most of the episode defending Castillo. John gets really upset with Reese digging his fingers into Castillo’s dinner. Dom just can’t see past Dad have two sets of rules for himself and his team and professes his love for Pink Floyd.
