Original air date: 05/06/1988

Filming for this episode took place from 03/09/1988 through 03/18/1988.

Working Title: Alter Ego

The teaser opens with C+T sitting at a Marina waiting for a meet. This was filmed at what I now call Tony Rome’s Marina after Frank Sinatra was based here in the movies,Tony Rome and Lady In Cement. The real name is Crandon Park Marina, Key Biscayne .

They were seated in the NE corner of the marina.

Then we go out on Biscayne Bay except for the shot of the Marlin jumping. That is clearly stock footage from an unknown deep water location, not Biscayne Bay.

The Rickenbacker Causeway Bridge and Brickell area, are seen in the background. The Marlin jumps from deep water then it is back to Biscayne Bay a few hundred yards south of Crandon Park Marina in about 8 feet of water.

Then the boat (or really a lame model) blows up which leads us into the standard season 4 opening montage.

Act 1 open inside the OCB, filmed on set within Stage A of Greenwich Studios.

Then we see Crockett is alive and recovering. This is one of those locations that could be hard to find but because my mind happened to be working in the right way at the right time it was a quick find. The main clues were the unique windows and the unique flooring. This was filmed on location at 953 Collins Avenue. The Edward Hotel.

Then we cut to Manolo’s house in Ft. Lauderdale. Filmed on location, not in Ft. Lauderdale but at 9190 SW 57th Avenue in Miami.

Next we see Tubbs breaking into the rear of the Edison Hotel. Through the rear door on the north side (10th Street opposite the Clevelander Hotel). There he get a clue to cross the street and go to the Clevelander.

Burnett recovers

Tubbs breaks in.

Tubbs then goes across to the Clevelander pool

Then we return to Burnett at Manolo’s. Filmed on location at 9190 SW 57th Ave.

Then to the interior of the OCB. Filmed on studio set.

Then we go to a deal where Burnett murders a guy without much concern. Location unknown.

Then we return to Manolo’s.

Then Tubbs arrives in Ft. Lauderale. Most likely filmed on set at the studio but I have not yet confirmed this 100%.

Then we see Burnett kill Gutierrez. Filming location unknown.

Then we see an exterior establishing shot of the Fairmont Hotel, Now the Fairwind. NW corner of Collins Avenue at 10th Street adjacent to the Edward Hotel where Burnett recuperated after the explosion. A shot of opportunity. We also see this location in the movies; All About The Benjamins and The Specialist.

Then we return to Manolo’s at  9190 SW 57th Ave.

Then we go inside. Filming location unknown.

There Tubbs receives a call from his friend at Ft. Lauderdale P.D. Who appears to be on a set.

Then Tubbs goes to the Gallery. This is instantly recognizable as Bruce Willis’ house from episode 7, No Exit. Filmed on location at the Spear’s Pink House, 9325 N. Bayshore Drive, Miami Shores.

The palm trees are about twice as tall now as they were when Vice filmed this episode.

Then we cut back to the interior of Ft. Lauderdale P.D. Filmed on set.

Then we cut back to Manolo’s, filmed on location at 9190 SW 57th Avenue.

Then we cut to Tubbs in his hotel room. Filming location unknown.

Tubbs talks on the phone with Manolo. Manolo’s location is unknown.

Then we see Tubbs get shot by Burnett in an alley.This was a convenient filming location near several other locations used in this episode. It starts off with Tubs walking westbound along the north side of the Breakwater Hotel with it’s unique vents. 940 Ocean Drive.

He reaches the corner of the Breakwater and heads south down Ocean Court.

Burnett approaches from the south and shoots Tubbs at the rear of the Breakwater. In the picture below right, the fourth yellow pole (bottom center in the picture) marks the spot Tubbs was standing when Burnett shot him. He falls on the spot where the three closer poles now stand.

Then we see a dream sequence that was filmed on Miami Beach. Due to the zoom lens used to film this, it is difficult to place the exact spot on Miami Beach where this was filmed.

Then we see Burnett awake from the dream. Filming location unknown but likely at 9190 SW 57th Ave.

Then we cut to Tubbs getting patched up. Very likely filmed on studio set but I have not confirmed that yet.

Then a quick cut to Burnett at Manolo’s (likely filmed there). Before returning to the Ft. Lauderdale P.D. Filmed on set at Greenwich Studios.

Then we cut to Manolo’s. Filmed there on location at 9190 SW 57th Ave.

Intercut we see the leak in Ft. Lauderdale P.D. (Set) talking via phone with Manolo.

Then we see Tubbs talking via phone with Castillo. Both were filmed on studio set.

Then we go to the rear of the gallery, filmed on location at the pink house. 9325 N. Bayshore Drive, Miami Shores.

There B U R N E T T plugs the leak.

The season and episode ends here as Burnett flees the scene.
