About the episode[]

The plot of Stone's Wars revolves around Liddy supplying arms to unnamed fighters in an unnamed Central American country, but it's evident that it's US arms being shipped to the Contras in Nicaragua. There are performances by Bob Baliban and G Gordon Liddy reprising their roles from an episode from the previous season, with the final scene set to Jackson Browne's "Lives in the Balance" making a powerful ending.

The episode features Andy Taylor's song "When The Rain Comes Down", which is also included on the Miami Vice 2: Soundtrack and "Mercy" by Steve Jones, who Andy worked with on many of his solo tracks.
