The team is embedded deep in a big time South Beach dealer and the only thing that can mess it up is… Themselves. Not only do they mess up the court case, but they let little Nicky get blown up.
Okay, that was probably pretty harsh. But they are quite bumbling in this episode. In the end, the real villain is killed in a classic case of Vice vigilante justice from a family dispute none of them saw coming, even if it was a train laying on its horn while on fire. One positive note: They actually arrested the drug dealer! Not everyone got killed!
John agrees with Sonny’s position of never letting a hot dog stand get robbed. Melissa wonders how Gina is getting the money for a fancy convertible and that gigantic house. Dominic is quite upset with how the Vice writers handled Gina in this episode. We all wonder how many kilos of drugs they actually have.
Its a must watch episode of Miami Vice and a fantastic episode of the greatest Vice podcast on the planet.
