Okay, real talk. This is not only one of the best episodes of season 5, but maybe one of the best episodes of Miami Vice. This story is complex and nuanced. It has several subplots that lead directly into Freefall and for whatever reason it was completely pulled from air until reruns.

To be honest, we’re all in total shock this episode did not air before Freefall on NBC. No jokes here, this episode really is something great. We have Stan’s gambling, Tubbs’ terrible loneliness, Tubbs & Crockett’s strained relationship and the closure of the Valerie story line. All of that doesn’t even include a very real and thoughtful story about a drug addict, child abuse & should a cop lie to take down despicable person.

This is an episode of Miami Vice you can’t miss.
