Next Silk arrives and goes inside the Checker Club.
The interior was filmed on location inside Club Z/Mansion. The Movie Chains of Gold
with John Travolta also filmed here. In that movie we get an excellent view of the
club which helped confirm the location.
Then we go downtown for a meeting. This was filmed under the Brickell Avenue Bridge
on the north bank of the Miami River.
Looking toward camera. Opposite direction.
Then we cut to the interior of the OCB where Castillo calls Crockett who is outside
the Checker Club. He orders him to bring Romano home. The OCB is of course a set.
Then we arrive at Ramano’s house. This was filmed at 41 Washington Avenue, Miami
Beach. Commerce Street stretches out to the west behind them. Behind Crockett we
see the south wall of the Ramrod. In my picture below (09/02/2008), Burn Notice was
using the area where the Ramrod was for their trailers during the filming of episode
25/213; Bad Breaks.
Next we cut to the jail. A set at Greenwich Studios.
Intercut we see Vic inside his place.
Then we hit the streets again. Trudy is on the east side of Washington Avenue just
north of 10th Street.
Then we cut briefly to the jail where Tubbs has bailed out Carla. This was filmed
on set at the studio.
Then we see a brief exterior establishing shot of the Checker Club’s rear entrance
at 1235 Collins Ct.
Before going inside, filmed on location inside Club Z.
Then they take it outside. They are about 15 yards north of the entrance door when
Tubbs puts Silk against the wall.
Then we go inside the OCB (set).
Then we see Carla and Tubbs having dinner.
Tubbs calls Castillo who is in his office (set).
Then we see Crockett pay a brief visit to Vic’s home where he picks up Vic. 41 Washington
Then we see Leo in his limo at a college campus. In reality he is not on a college
or university campus. He is at the front entrance of Greenwich Studios. Partially
hidden in the dark background is the neighboring trailer park and Stage A where the
OCB office was located. Also seen further back is Storer Communications, 12000 Biscayne
Blvd. and it’s parking garage.
Limo was parked where the white SUV is parked in my picture from inside the studio’s
Limo parked behind fence.
Intercut we see Silk on the phone with Leo. At first look it would appear to be also
at the studio but after closer examination it was probably filmed on Collins Court
near 13th Street. Location unknown.
Then we see Crockett,Tubbs, Vic, and Carla in a high rise. They are in the South
East Financial Center at 200 S. Biscayne Blvd. The Bank of America tower is seen
prominently in the background.
Then we go to Vic’s home where Leo has a hit on Crockett that fails.
Then we go back to the rear of the Checker Club before cutting back to Vic’s where
Crockett gets a call about Leo’s location.
It cuts to Tubbs and Carla inside the Checker Club.
Filmed on location inside Club Z.
Then Crockett arrives where they have Leo pulled over. This was filmed in the same
stretch of Washington Avenue just north of 10th Street. He arrives driving northbound.
Then we go to the rear of the Checker Club where they have a significant gun fight.
Goof: So who moved the shooter’s body after Crockett put him down?
Then we see Crockett and Tubbs doing paperwork. Location unknown.
Then we see Crockett and Tubbs northbound up Washington Avenue through the 1000 block
where we see Carla come out of Frank’s Restaurant and go back to work. The episode
It is during this scene we get a shot of the buildings across the street to the north
that we saw earlier when Tubbs tackled the man outside the Ramrod. They filmed very
carefully so with shots all around, they did not reveal that Vic lived adjacent to
Windows broken out.
