Someone is trying to put the SQUEEZE on Castillo and the team is having none of it. But that’s not what we’re focused on. With one of the corniest villains ever in Miami Vice. The Bond knockoff is desperate to find out who stole his drugs and is willing to frame a Congresswoman to force her son to turn them over. The Vice team is hot on his trail but no one suspects Edwina.
We have a lot of fun with this episode, right up until John has to go John Wick on everyone that worked on the show. Melissa is concerned about the attitude of the hospital staff working on Castillo. Dominic is all caught up in Sonny’s therapy sessions and John… John is a little upset at Vice (massive understatement) and loves Edwina.
