"World of Trouble" is the eighteenth episode of Miami Vice's fifth season and the first of four "lost" episodes aired after the series finale "Freefall" aired. The episode premiered on June 14, 1989.

SummaryEdit

Al Lombard, thought to be dead, returns to see his son and the grandson he never knew, while eluding his rival Librizzi's hitmen.

PlotEdit

Crockett & Tubbs are attending a demonstration of a new weapon "that will revolutionize the war on drugs". They meet FBI Agent Hanley, who will help put on the show. Meanwhile, a group of "caterers" have arrived carrying automatic weapons. Lawrence Fowler (Vincent Schiavelli), is the creator of HAVOC (High Voltage Vehicle Override Capacitor), designed as a "stun gun" for vehicles instead of people. Just then the "caterers" arrive, steal HAVOC under a hail of gunfire, and escape, using the weapon to stop a pursuing Metro police car cold.

The one gunman killed was Johnny Gottman, recent parolee and low-rent muscle. Crockett tells Hanley the thieves had inside help, as they knew about the demonstration and layout. Tubbs finds a card on Gottman regarding "Mooring 89" and go check it out. On the yacht Gulfstreamer II they find Hans Weitzler (Luca Bercovici), a major arms dealer, and Sal Lombard (Tim Quill) arrives to finalize the deal with Weitzler for HAVOC, but demands an additional $100,000 because of Gottman's death, and gives the dealer 48 hours to come up with it, and Crockett & Tubbs fill in Hanley. Sal arrives at his place and his father (Dennis Farina) is waiting for him, having been in hiding since Librizzi put a contract on him four years ago. Sal tells his dad he packages capital for real estate projects (instead of his real profession), and Lombard is back to have his family around him, and finds Sal's wife, Rita (Julian Brams) has a son named Tommy, when Lombard asks to see him, Sal lets him know Rita feels he's a bad influence, but will speak to her. Crockett & Tubbs spot Lombard leaving (and bust him), and follow him while Switek tails Sal. Lombard tells about his travels while in exile, including a rumored Jamaican trip where Librizzi's men caught up to him, only all ended up having fatal accidents. Lombard's lawyer comes in to pick him up, seems the charges against him were dropped "in the interest of justice due to Mr. Lombard's 'failing health' (which he's fine now that he's home)". Lombard and Sal are walking on the marina, still under the impression Sal is doing well legit, when Sal has to make a call to Fowler, who wants to see him ASAP (because he's involved in HAVOC's disappearance). Fowler is panicking about the FBI searching the lab and questioning everyone in it, Sal assures him he'll make enough money to start his own lab, but Lombard overhears and wants Sal to forget about his plan, and that he lied about his business, then Sal brings up the old wounds about their relationship. Just then a hitman shoots down Sal, who mentions a "package at the post office" before he dies.

Crockett & Tubbs express their condolences to Lombard, and promise to find the ones who killed Sal. Lombard knows it was Librizzi's men that killed him, and doesn't listen to Crockett that going after his former boss would result in burying father and son. Librizzi (Ned Eisenberg) is angry about the hit being blown, saying that he set Lombard up, even buying the judge who dropped the charge. Switek gets a composite on Fowler while Lombard is unsuccessful in getting the package back. Crockett & Tubbs stop by Fowler's car who said Systex (his employer) stole HAVOC and gave him $5000 in bonus money, while Sal offered $200,000, but he doesn't know where HAVOC is other than Sal sent it to his uncle. Lombard stops by to see Rita who blows him off saying

Tommy doesn't need a grandfather who is a gangster, so Lombard arranges to have money sent to him without knowing who it came from. Meanwhile, Librizzi's hitmen are back and heading for Lombard's place, but the former gangster kills one and wounds the other who tells all to Lombard, then a helicopter flies over Librizzi's place and dumps the dead hitman into the pool where he & his girl are swimming.

Librizzi stops by Weitzler's yacht and informs him that his vendetta against Lombard cost him the HAVOC and gives him five days to find it or else. Gina & Trudy bring in the reports of the shootout at Lombard's place, while Al stops by to see Tommy and brings him a remote control car, then Rita stops by and tells him that Sal wanted to be like him, died protecting him, and wants Lombard to stay out of their lives.

Crockett brings Lombard in for help in bringing Librizzi down, for his & his grandson's sake, by getting HAVOC for him to use to get Librizzi--only if Lombard doesn't kill his rival. Lombard goes to see his lawyer Mike, who tells him that Librizzi set him up, but Mike steps on a button, bringing in a guard who shoots him.

The shooting is a set up, Lombard is not hurt, to be put into the Witness Protection program, while Crockett calls Librizzi to offer HAVOC in exchange for $200,000. Rita drives by a daycare to drop Tommy off, while Lombard stops by to see him and take him a lunchbox, and to let him know his grandpa would be going away for awhile (Tommy thinks he's going to heaven with his daddy), and will think about him every day. Librizzi arrives at the marina where Crockett, Tubbs & HAVOC are waiting, and they demonstrate it by blowing up Librizzi's boat. The exchange is made, but Lombard shows up ready to pull a gun out, saying "this one's for my son", then Librizzi shoots Lombard and Crockett & Tubbs kill Librizzi. Lombard as it turns out was unarmed, thereby keeping his word, asks Crockett to tell Rita to explain things to Tommy, and Lombard dies.
