Go With The Heat 60 - Better Living Through Chemistry

Its been a while since Izzy was on an episode of Miami Vice. But it was well worth the wait, Izzy came in and and really saved this episode. A hot button topic in the 80's was synthetic drugs and this episode has it coming out of its eyeballs. In a strange story, we follow a man named "Wango" who has a chemist that is making synthetic cocaine. Crockett has infiltrated the gang, but Tubbs is left to go play in his own yard after being outed as a cop by his old partner. Things get wacky and weird and eventually end in true Miami Vice fashion... A massive shootout that leaves all the criminals dead.

But we still have a ton of fun with this episode! Dominic wonders why Luna is still making drugs even though he's being ransomed. John wants to know why Clarence didn't make JUST ONE PHONE CALL to help his old partner. Meanwhile we learn in the music segment Melissa is related to... Gene Autry? Maybe things do get really weird.
