The episode starts off with a brief recap of recent events.

Then we see an aerial shot of Miami Beach centered around 15th Street

Then the south tip of Miami Beach.

Then we go inside a restaurant for a meet. Filming location unknown.

Then we see the South Point of Miami Beach again.

Then looking south from downtown Miami along Interstate 95 with the Stephen P. Clark Center in the foreground.

Then an old aerial of Michael’s place located at 528 NW 7th Ave. Miami.

Then we land outside Michael’s place. Filmed on location at the rear of the Coconut Grove Convention Center Studio.

We then go inside. Filmed on set inside the studio.

Then we see an aerial of the charger on the Rickenbacker Causeway headed off of Virginia Key toward the mainland.

Then we see a shot looking north up the west side of southern South Beach.

Then passing Beach Paradise Hotel and Heathcote Apartments on Ocean Drive, Miami Beach.

Then we land outside the nightclub where Rebecca last saw here brother. They are parked outside the Amnesia nightclub, 136 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. This location may look familiar to you if you have seen Band of The Hand. Michael has parked in front of what was the “halfway house” used extensively in that movie. The location of what is now Amnesia was seen in the background in the movie, Band of The Hand.

Then we cut back to Michael’s pad where the gang gets organized. Filmed on set inside the Coconut Grove Convention Center.

Then we see an exterior establishing shot of the Metro West Detention Center, 13850 NW 41st Street, Miami.

Then we go inside Fiona’s jail. Filming location unknown, possibly a studio set.

Then we cut to Jesse and Nate headed north. In fact they are headed north on Alton Road with Mt. Sinai Medical Center seen in the background. If this looks familiar it is because it is re-used footage from episode 66, No Good Deed.

Then just north of 195 immediately in front of Mt. Sinai Medical Center.



Then we see a couple of aerial establishing shots filmed over capitol Hill, Tallahassee.

Then we see Jesse and Nate have arrived. Only it is very clear that they are still in Miami. Filmed on location on North East Miami Place at 15th Street in Miami.

Torn down in the first half of 2014


House 1535 NE Miami Place

Then we go inside. Filmed on location at 1535 NE Miami Place.

Then we see an aerial establishing shot of the Florida State Seminoles Stadium in Tallahassee.

Then a shot of Miami from over Bayfront Park.

Then an aerial of Michael’s loft on NW 7th Ave., Miami.

Then we go inside. Filmed on set at the studio. Jesse is seen still inside 1535 NE North Miami Place.

This behind the scenes photo (below) shows that the scene was filmed in the daytime but the windows were blacked out to make it appear to be nighttime.

Then we see Michael go into action as the ex-con. This appears to be the same location where Michael met with Card at the start of the episode but I have not placed this filming location yet. Location unknown.

Then we cut to Carlito’s. Filmed on set at the rear of the Coconut Grove Convention Center Studio.

Then we see Michael meet with Foster again, this time in his home. Location unknown.

Then we go inside the police records office. This was almost certainly filmed on set inside the studio but I have not confirmed this yet 100%.

Then we go inside Fiona’s jail. Filming location unknown.

Fiona calls Greyson. Greyson is on the bay directly behind the American Airlines Arena.

Then we see Michael and Foster (who has no one lower in the chain of criminal command to handle this?) Round a corner to break into the Police Records warehouse. In reality this is a fake wall and door built onto the exterior of the Coconut Grove Convention Center Studio. On the east side.

The edge of the studio’s real retaining wall can be seen sticking out here past the edge of the fake wall.

The tree behind them still remains despite the studio having been destroyed.
