Act 1 opens outside a Miami Beach Church, at the Wire’s funeral. This was filmed on location at St. Patrick Church, 3716 Garden Avenue. We see this exterior view in the Burn Notice episode, Bloodlines. We see the interior of the attached church complex used in When Irish Eyes Are Crying.
Stan is watching from the SW corner of the intersection of Barry Street with Garden Avenue.
Crockett and Tubbs are amongst the mourners even though the dialog reveals that Crockett is the one who killed him.
