The episode starts with Sonny testifying in court. This was filmed on location inside the North Dade Justice Center. 15555 Biscayne Blvd., North Miami Beach.

They exit the rear of the building. Filmed on location at the North Dade Justice Center.

Then we see the standard season 5 opening montage.

Act 1 opens still at the North Dade Justice Center. There the FBI makes contact with Crockett and Tubbs.

This leads us into an office for a meeting. Filming location unknown.

At one point it appears as though this maybe a set despite looking so real. It appears there might not be a ceiling and studio lights may be visible.

Next we go on protection detail. This was filmed on location at the Biltmore Hotel. 1200 Anastasia Avenue, Coral Gables.

They take up residence in the Al Capone Suite. We have seen this same room used in the movie, Bad Boys and in the Burn Notice episode Better Halves.

As seen in Bad Boys

It cuts to nighttime and we see Stan has selected a poor surveillance location at the front of the hotel.

As in Bad Boys, the window is used as an exit to the roof.

Here the front door is used instead of the pool.

Crockett tracks Mollis down at the Rusty Needle. Filming location unknown.

Crockett pulls Mollis out of the Rusty Needle and we see them arrive back at the Biltmore. Filmed there on location.

We see the blond woman has followed them. This appears to have been filmed at the Biltmore Hotel but not enough is seen to confirm this.

Two hit men attack while they are in the suite. Filmed on location in the Al Capone Suite at the Biltmore Hotel.

Then we cut to the next day and Castillo is meeting with Crockett and Tubbs. This was also filmed on location at the Biltmore. The same location we saw later used in the Burn Notice episode, No Good Deed.

Then we see them sneak the decoy out the front of the Biltmore and away in a convertible. Not a great choice of vehicles to secret someone off in.

Then Crockett loads Mollis in the Testarossa at the front of the Biltmore.

They stop the blond at the front of the Biltmore on Anastasia Avenue only to find out she is FBI.

Then we see stock footage of a building. Thanks to Matt5 @ miamiviceonline.com we know that this was filmed at the Federal Building located at 11000 Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, CA.

Then we go inside, filming location unknown.

Next we cut to the boat. This was filmed on location in No Name Harbor on Key Biscayne.

At the start of the scene we see the area used previously in When Irish Eyes Are Crying.

When Irish Eyes Are Crying.

Then we cut to the interior of the OCB. Filmed on set inside Stage A of Greenwich Studios.

Looking toward camera, reverse view.

Then we return to No Name Harbor on Key Biscayne.

Here, they are attacked again and Crockett shoots down the helicopter with a flare gun. Amazing, also strange that the rotors are not turning and it is a totally different style of helicopter.

Then we cut to the OCB, filmed on set.

Then we cut to the interior of a courtroom. This was filmed on location inside the North Dade Justice Center where the episode started.
