Episode 48

Walk Alone

HOME

Original air date: 10/17/1986

Filming for this episode took place from 09/04/1986 thru 09/15/1986

The episode starts out with Tubbs in bed with his girlfriend. According to Tom at Miamiviceonline.com, who has the daily production reports for this episode, this was filmed inside Club Ovo, 1450 Collins Ave. SoBe.

Then it cuts and Tubbs is happily at work inside the O.C.B. (set).

While there Tubbs gets a call from his girlfriend. She overheard a phone conversation about a 3 kilo deal going down in her restaurant. Tubbs and Crockett respond and witness a hit. Tubbs’ girlfriend gets killed. Thanks to Crockettt at Miamiviceonline.com who let me know that this was filmed at Hoffman’s Cafeteria. Better known today as Jerry’s Famous Deli but at the time of this filming it was Club OVO. 1450 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach. I first saw this location on film in the movie, A Hole In The Head where it was seen in it’s original design, Hoffman’s Cafeteria.  We saw it before the remodeling to become Club Ovo in episode 18, Made For Each Other.

Then we see the opening montage. The same montage we saw in episode 47, Killshot.

After the opening montage we see return to the restaurant and Castillo is there being briefed by Crockett.

Then we cut to the exterior of Raoul’s for an establishing shot. This is stock footage from California. 19850 Santa Monica Blvd. at San Vicente Blvd. We also saw the exterior of Raoul’s used in episode 43, Trust Fund Pirates.

Then we go inside where Stan and Larry question Izzy. This was also shot at Hoffman’s Cafeteria.

Then we return to the O.C.B. (set).

From there we go to the hospital. Tom confirms that this was a set at Greenwich Studios. Thanks Tom.

Which leads us back to the O.C.B. (set).

Then we go to a library where Stan and Larry obtain assistance from Carl. Looks like a set but location unknown.

Then we see Tubbs out to get arrested. We see him eastbound crashing through the toll gate onto the Rickebacker Causeway.

He finds trouble right away and the chase begins eastbound on the Rickenbacker Causeway toward the bridge.

After being forced onto the u-turn ramp, Tubbs takes the long route under the bridge and is cut off. We see this location used in Freefall (episode 110) and in Burn Notice, episodes 6 (unpaid Debts) and 47 (Made Man).

As seen in:

Then we see Tubbs on a prison bus. Not enough is seen to verify the location but it was likely filmed near the prison.

We see Tubbs arrive at the prison. He is seen from above traveling south then east around the perimeter of the South Florida Reception Center, 14000 NW 41st Street, Miami. We saw this facility used in Payback and now Burn Notice has used it for episode 54, Hard Time.

They enter through the southern gate.

Then we are filming on location within the facility.

They film inside and outside in the yard of D block.

Trudy comes and goes without a kiss through the southern gate where the crooked guards discover that things are not what they thought and the cops are setting them up.

Then we cut to the drug deal meet. This was filmed in location at Horatio’s on Virginia Key. We saw this same restaurant used in episode 35, Yankee Dollar with a similar scene.

As seen in Yankee Dollar.

It cuts back and fourth between Horatio’s and the prison.

Then the Vice Squad goes to the prison. We first see them on a rural road, possibly the perimeter road but that is not confirmed.  Location unknown.

Then they go inside. Castillo first.

Castillo manages to get off 7 shots from his 6 shot revolver.

The episode ends at D Block where the crooked correctional officers got a jury of their own peers.
