Every crime/detective show needs to have a least one “boomerang” episode. You know, the one that goes back to an earlier episode and brings back a worthy adversary. With only two episodes left in our coverage (and twelve episodes total), it seemed like we might never get that chance, but a glance at this episode’s title will let you know that moment is finally here. As the tagline for POLTERGEIST II (1986) said, “They’re back!”

Diamonds” can be a pretty tall order, but “Gonzales’ Revenge” is another great entry in the second season. Naturally, a lot of this has to do with the return of our favorite villain from season one. Estrada is having a ball here and gives a decidedly over-the-top performance, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. Coming off like Tony Montana minus the accent, Estrada doesn’t let a since scene pass without doing something outlandish (and flashing his teeth). You’d think he was being paid per maniacal laugh. The end has him blowing up in a huge fireball, but you know the producers weren’t going to let that happen so there is a scene showing that he survived (how is never explained) and recaptured by Jack for more prison time. Had this series continued, I’m sure we would have seen his incisors again.
