  • Nice wedding gear

    9.3
    This is a memorable episode for a few reasons. It opens with a wedding (the music is provided by one Jan Hammer in his only cameo, and dig the hair and outfits) that ends with an execution and high speed boat chase.



    It leads to a dealer named Sagot, who had a DA killed. His defense lawyer, Thurmond (played very well by John Heard) undergoes a crisis of conscious.



    Thurmond also has a nasty past with Crockett. He decides to end it all but ensure he provide Crockett with the evidence he needs. He goes out mid episode in a plane crash. But is it the last we hear from Thurmond?

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Assassin Sagot uses a stolen boat to take a wild ride down the Miami River, in an effort to elude police. As he comes to the end of the line, Crockett is seen on a bridge above the boat, waiting to jump on and catch Sagot. When Crockett makes the jump, he is clearly headed for the back of the boat, but Crockett lands in front of Sagot, gun drawn, ready to arrest the hit man.

  • NOTES (5)

    • The German episode title is "Reise ohne Rückkehr", meaning "Trip with no Return".

    • Music: "Kyrie" (in club) by Mr. Mister from album Welcome to the Real World; "Face the Face" (during flight/at firing range) by Pete Townshend from his album White City: A Novel; "Mustang Sally" (in garage) by Wilson Pickett.

    • Jan Hammer, who wrote and performed the show's theme and score each week, is seen briefly in the teaser (the pre-credit sequence) as a wedding musician. Hammer was riding high on the success of the show's soundtrack album, released the previous summer. It was the first TV soundtrack to reach the top of the Billboard Album Chart since "Peter Gunn" did it in 1959.

    • Annie Golden, who had a very small part as a hooker in the police station in "The Prodigal Son", is introduced in this episode as Tommy, Crockett's mechanic.

    • Don Johnson is said to have essentially directed this episode by taking the reins from the inexperienced Bolotin.
