The episode starts out at night with the Vice Squad working a drug deal with Tubbs undercover. Both the police staging area and marina where Tubbs goes for the deal were filmed at the exact same spot which of course would not have worked in real life. This was filmed on location at Nuta’s Boatyard. 1884 NW North River Drive, Miami. This is the third time Miami Vice filmed at Nuta’s. We previously saw it in Red Tape and Cows of October.
Below we see that the same Key West boat, the Vanesa where they conducted the deal for bull futures in Cows of October is still being worked on at Nuta’s 3.5 months later.

Then we see the standard season 4 opening montage.
Act 1 opens with an exterior establishing shot of Gold Coast Shipping. This footage was originally seen in episode 31; Bought and Paid For. It’s roots go deeper though as this was footage originally shot for episode 3, Cool Runnin’ but in that episode (and many others) the footage was cut down and we only saw the footage that follows a second after this footage. This footage was also seen in episode 64, By Hooker by Crook.
Then we go inside. Filmed on set at Greenwich Studios.
Then we cut to the interior of a car as a guy drives along. This was likely filmed by SW 3rd Avenue and SW 6th Street but I have not confirmed this yet.

There, Tubbs chases after the woman he saw in the opening drug deal. She runs through Jose Marti Park which we have seen used previously in: No Exit, Rites of Passage, Cows of October. Burn Notice has since used it in episodes: Friends Like These and No Good Deed. The Movie Marley and Me also filmed here.
