The episode starts out inside a bar with a young crowd. As the sign on the wall indicates. This was filmed on location at The Kitchen Club, 100 21st Street, Miami Beach.

Then we go to a college campus. This was filmed at the University of Miami’s School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. 4600 Rickenbacker Causeway, on Virginia Key.

Then we see the standard season 5 opening montage.

Act 1 opens inside the OCB. Filmed on set inside Greenwich Studios. We see Detective Mills. Surprised to see her as a Vice cop after trying to shoot Crockett in Rock and A Hard Place.

This leads us to a meet between Crockett and Cutter. This was filmed on location at Big Fish. 55 South Miami Avenue, Miami. We have seen this location used previously in Lend Me An Ear. Burn Notice has since used it in A Dark Road.

As seen in, Lend Me An Ear.

As seen in, A Dark Road.

Then we go to the shooting range. This was filmed at greenwich Studios in the parking lot immediately outside of Stage C. This was the exact same spot we saw in Bad Timing where it was used as the prison yard.

Fortunately they were not using real bullets with only a thin wood plank fence as the back stop.

Then we go inside the Young Criminals Unit. Filming location unknown.

Then we go to Baine’s class. Filming location unknown but likely filmed inside the Rosenstiel School, 4600 Rickenbacker Causeway.

Then we see them leaving the class. They exit the south side of the science building at the east end. The Satellite dish can be seen reflected in the glass windows.

Then we go to Baines’ party. Filming location unknown.

Then we see Claire and Mundy getting closer. Filming location unknown.

Then we go to a bar for introductions. With the unique high gabled roof this should be easily recognized but I do not recognize this location. Filming location unknown.

Then we see Hardin call Mundy. Both of their locations are unknown but likely filmed on the University of Miami Campus.

Claire calls Mundy. Her location is also unknown but all three may have been filmed in the same building.

Then we go to Baines’ office. Believed to have been filmed at the Rosenstiel School but I have not confirmed the location.

Then we see the results. Filmed on location at the SW tip of Dodge Island/ Port of Miami. The same spot we saw used in the teaser of Whatever works.

As seen in Whatever Works.

Then there were three, on the beach. Filming location unknown.

Then we see an exterior establishing shot of a commercial building. Thanks to airtommy at miamiviceonline.com we now know that this was filmed at Cahn Bros. & Redmond Inc. 900 S Peters Street in New Orleans LA. The vehicle is seen driving west on St Joseph St. and turns onto S Peters Street with 900 S Peters Seen behind the vehicle. Thanks airtommy.

Then we go inside the Young Criminals Unit. Filming location unknown.

This leads us to Baines’ office. Filming location unconfirmed but likely at the U’s Rosenstiel School.

Andrews starts to freak out and we see Hardin is listening in. He is parked at a famous Miami Vice location. Made most famous in the climax of Bushido and also used in Afternoon Plane and Cuba Libre. Filmed on location at the Deering Estate, 16701 SW 72nd Avenue.

Then back to Baines’ office which certainly looks like Rosenstiel School.

Andrews runs out onto the balcony/open hallway on the southside, second floor of the Rosenstiel School.

Then they are on the ground running along the north side of the building.

Then up onto the bridge to Key Biscayne.

Hardin saves Zach on the bridge. Filmed on location on the bridge between Virginia Key and Key Biscayne.

Then it is back to Baines’ office. Location unconfirmed but likely inside the  Rosenstiel School.

This leads us to Harrison Hall. In reality it looks more like Montgomery Hall by the sign but neither is correct. Thanks to Airtommy at miamiviceonline.com we know that this was filmed on location at the Miami Beach City Hall. 1700 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach.

Cutter is listening in from the Rosenstiel School on Virginia Key.

On the roof, they get Baines talking. Filmed on the roof of the Miami Beach City Hall.

Baines’ takes a fall ending the episode. The quality of the episode ended it’s potential to become a spin off series.

Not good enough.
