Then we cut back to the studio.

Then we cut to the streets where we see Tubbs at work. Tubbs walks into the scene on 12th Street immediately hitting Washington Avenue. He is then standing at the SE corner of that intersection. Filmed on location there in Miami Beach.

Then we return to Washington Avenue by 12th Street.

Briefly back to the studio before returning to Washington Avenue. Crockett is stationed on the NE corner of the intersection with 12th Street which is where Leona crashes into the building.


This ends the teaser. We then see the standard season 4 opening montage.

Act 1 opens inside the police station. Filmed on set at Greenwich Studios.

Then we return to the t.v. studio, also a set at Greenwich Studios.

Then we see Faye call Tubb’s at what is apparently his apartment. Both these shots were likely filmed on set at the studio but the locations are unconfirmed/unknown.

Then Tubbs is seen at the t.v. studio (set) meeting alone with the nutty girl.

Then we return to the police station. Filmed on set at Greenwich Studios.

Intercut we see Castillo’s office (studio set) then back to Faye taking a polygraph. Also filmed on set at Greenwich Studios.

Then we see Crockett in Mason’s office trying to dig up dirt on Billy Bob Proverb. This was no doubt filmed on set at Greenwich studios but I have not confirmed this yet.

Then we see Crockett arrive at Billy Bob’s home to rescue Tubbs from himself. Filmed on location at 19 Star Island. This home no longer exist as a number of lots were purchased and combined into one residence, 21 Star Island.

Then we see Bill Bob leave 19 Star Island and go the long way off the island. Gina and Trudy pull out of 21 Star Island and follow.

Then Miami Beach, northbound on Ocean Drive passing thru the 800 block.

After passing the Waldorf Towers they turn west on 9th Street.

Then Stan calls in the location as Bill Bob exits the limo. This is a somewhat rare occasion where the dialog matches reality. “He’s out of the limo at 9th and Ocean“ and they are on 9th Street at Ocean Court.

Then we see Bill Bob walk south down Ocean Court away from 9th Street.

Then we cut to the interior of the OCB. Filmed on set at Greenwich Studios.

Then we go to Fast Eddie’s Gift Shop. According to Tom at miamiviceonline.com the location sheets which are attached to the script, report that this was filmed at 1201 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach. Thanks Tom. This location is not 100% confirmed as location sheets are pre production and therefore not 100% reliable like the Daily Production Reports.

Then we see C+T at Mason’s studio. This was likely filmed at Greenwich Studios but I have not confirmed this yet.

Then we see C+T drinking at a bar. This was filmed on location at Tropics International, 960 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach. Inside the Edison Hotel.

This leads us to Billy Bob’s studio. The interior was filmed inside Greenwich Studios but the exterior was filmed at LOVE94, 194 NW 187th Street. We saw this location used previously in Stone’s War.

Then we go to the hospital. This was filmed on location at Mt. Sinai Hospital, 4300 Alton Road. We have seen this location used in Florence Italy, Everybody’s in Showbiz, and we will see it again in Line of Fire. Also seen in the movies,Tony Rome, and A Hole In The Head.

Then we return to Billy Bobs Studio. Filmed at Greenwich Studios.

Then we see Crockett and Tubbs arrive at Becker’s place. This was filmed at the Edison Hotel, 960 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach. The same building where we saw them inside at the bar earlier.

Then the chase is on. They run past the pool toward the rear but Tubbs come in from Ocean Court.

Tubbs continues the chase up the exterior stairs while Crockett goes thru the interior of the Edison. We saw these stairs in the background during episode 53, Baby Blues.

They coral him on the roof, but it is not the Edison. Somehow they have shifted south and have arrived on the roof of the Breakwater.

Then we go to Mason who has escaped his room and climbed up a radio tower. This was filmed on location at WKAT, 1759 Bay Road, Miami Beach.

Then we return to Billy Bobs Studio (set) where he somehow does a final broadcast even though his equipment had all been fried.

Then we see Crockett and Tubbs watching them on t.v. at the station. Filmed on set at Greenwich Studios.
