[S2E1] The Black Market Car [NEW]
Sometime after the events of last season's "The Chrome Car", Mirror Tulip has found a blacksmith car. After rendering the denizens comatose, she gives herself a makeover to be visibly distinct from her "prime". Now sporting a confident new look, MT proceeds to spend the next few months traveling the train and experiencing all it has to offer, while doing her best to avoid detection from the reflection police. After learning that One-One now controls the train and is giving new passengers instructional videos on how to leave the otherworldly locomotive, MT silently contemplates her own lack of a number before entering the titular Black Market Car.
[S2E1] The Black Market Car
In the car, a denizen inspecting MT with an eyeglass results in Special Agent Mace and Agent Sieve finding her, still desiring to execute her for the crime of escaping the Mirror World. After a prolonged chase through the marketplace, she manages to lose them by escaping into the autumn forest within the next car, hiding behind an odd deer that can alter the properties of its body. Thanking the woodland creature, MT attempts to continue on her journey only to discover that the deer has become attached to her and won't stop following her around. Though initially annoyed by this, she quickly grows fond of its presence and spends the next two day playing and caring for it.
Tropes for this episode include: As You Know: The Mirror Police discuss how a compromised suit is dangerous, which they should already know.
Berserk Button: M.T. loses her temper at Jesse for nicknaming her "Chrome Girl", because she doesn't want to be defined by him.
Bread, Eggs, Breaded Eggs: Jesse first names the deer Dracula, then Alan, before settling on "Alan Dracula".
Chameleon Camouflage: The deer is able to blend into the forest floor to hide M.T. from the Mirror Police.
Cliffhanger: The episode ends with the deer falling through the ground, and M.T. and Jesse about to go after it.
Continuity Nod: M.T.'s bracelet is the metal chain for a pen. Tulip parted ways with her in the bank car with living pencils.
When One-One mentions how one can encounter friends along their journey across the train, images of Randall and Atticus pop up.
M.T goes through the Kaiju Car from the shorts.
We see a passenger transport pod being put to its proper use for the first time, revealing where the Conductor got the parts for the "head" of her suit.
The idea of a guide in general was most likely stemming from a comment Tuip made about the Train "not having a rulebook" back in "The Beach Car".
Cyberpunk: The aesthetic of the Black Market car with its grittiness, neon and combined with MT's status as a 'clone' with the Mirror Police after her looks like it's the Infinity Train version of Blade Runner.
Desperately Seeking A Purpose In Life: M.T. is wandering around the train aimlessly, knowing that none of the quests are for her and that there is no home for her apart from serving as Tulip's reflection.
Dress Hits Floor: M.T. takes off her shirt and jacket so she can change into a new shirt, with the camera positioned behind her legs. The two hit the floor with a loud clang due to being metal.
Important Haircut: M.T. shears off her hair on one of the train's wheels to keep from being recognized.
The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: One-One's orientation video has him mentioning that new passengers will probably have a lot of questions, including "Where am I? Why am I here? Are snacks provided?" The new visitor watching the video actually asks the first two questions in sync with Glad-One.
Magical Security Cam: Apparently the Mirror Police can do this with any sufficiently reflective surface. M.T. has taken to carrying black spray paint around to keep any such surfaces covered, including the shirt she wears and a ball-chain bracelet made out of the chain from a pen.
Musicalis Interruptus: When MT tries to walk off after meeting Alan Dracula, the walking music starts up only to immediately cut out when Alan Dracula interrupts her.
Oh, Crap!: M.T.'s reaction when one of the slug vendors shoves a small telescope into her face, which has a reflective surface the Mirror Police can see her through.
Psychological Projection: It's pretty clear that the reason M.T. does not like Jesse is because she views his tendency to assign things to the deer (putting glasses on him and giving him a name) and especially to her (calling her Chrome girl) as being akin to what her old life back in the mirror world was like, even though its mostly harmless and he's doing it in good jest.
Rattling Off Legal: Sad-One at the end of their video.Sad-One: By watching this recording you've agreed to release the Train of any liability....
Taught by Experience: Having been restored as the Conductor, One-One has added a prerecorded message to the passenger pods that plays once they're woken up, informing them of the rules of the train and how to get home.
Time Skip: According to Owen, this takes place two months after Tulip left the train.
Visual Pun: Mace and Sieve are police officers running after MT with a giant sander (with a blade used to grind her to dust). They're Blade Runners.
During the first two seasons and two episodes from the third season, Detective Sonny Crockett drove a black 1972 Ferrari Daytona Spyder 365 GTS/4 replica with a Florida license plate ZAQ178. Ferrari North America had turned down the request by Miami Vice for authentic Ferraris (they did the same with Magnum, P.I., forcing that production to purchase 308 GTSs). Although Tom McBurnie is credited with planting the Daytona Spyder in the mind of the public, it was actually Al Mardekian, an importer of gray-market exoticars, who sold Miami Vice the two look-alike Ferraris for $49,000 each. In total two Corvette Daytona replicas were used for the show, car 4 and then car 1 after the pilot which acted as the stunt car. McBurnie was hired to build the bodies for the Corvette-chassised cars. It was blown to pieces on the show with a hand-held Stinger missile launcher during an illegal arms deal.
The "Ferraris" used in the first two seasons were actually re-bodied Corvettes based on a 1976 Corvette (car 1) and a 1981 (car 4) Chevrolet Corvette C3 chassis that had been modified with fiberglass body panels by specialty car manufacturer McBurnie Coachcraft to resemble an early-1970s Ferrari Daytona Spyder. the tan and black leather interior as well as the convertible top was fabricated by Scott Draizin/Headsup industries based in Ft Lauderdale. Still, the very first scene in the pilot episode which has the black Daytona appearing, though for a few seconds, makes use of a real Ferrari Daytona owned by Dr. Roger Sherman of Coconut Grove, Florida. It can be clearly identified as a real Daytona (American version) by the door handles, side markers, windshield rake, sun visors, width variation and side vent windows. All moving close-up scenes were done on the back of a flatbed truck under the supervision of TIDE Ferrari Racing crew member / model Kimberly Denson of Ft. Lauderdale, Fl.
In the second episode of the third season, Crockett complained to Lt. Castillo about driving vehicles that did not fit his cover as a high-roller drug dealer, that he was going around "looking like Li'l Abner"; Castillo quietly replied "It's out back." Sonny was then delighted to find his new white 1986 Ferrari Testarossa, Florida license plate AIF00M. The original Testarossas donated by Ferrari North America were black metallic but were then painted white. The Testarossa briefly appears in black in the season 3 episode "El Viejo", which was originally intended to be the season opener, but was then switched with "When Irish Eyes Are Crying" because it was thought that the season needed to start with a "bang" (i.e. the fake Daytona being blown up). Different reasons were given at the time as to why the cars were repainted in white, ranging from a driving mishap by Don Johnson on the set that resulted in one of the cars requiring a new coat of paint, to Michael Mann thinking that, unlike the Daytona, the black exterior paint did not make the Testarossa look good enough in night scenes.One of the two main Testarossas used in filming recently resided on display at The Fort Lauderdale Swap Shop. The Swap Shop's owner purchased the car from NBC for $750,000 and has reportedly turned down $1,000,000 offers for it. The other White Ferrari Testarossa was owned by Peter Lima, of Real Muscle Car Boutique also located in Miami, Florida and was put up for auction for $1.75 million through eBay in December 2014, after gaining a lot of buzz from the media. Today, the hero car (Ferrari Testarossa chassis #63631) is documented by Ferrari Classiche and is part of a collection currently owned by Adams Classic & Collector Cars in Buford, GA.

The pink teddy bear is seen in flashforwards during four episodes, the titles of which, when put together in order, form the sentence "Seven Thirty-Seven Down Over ABQ". The flashforwards are shot in black and white, with the sole exception of the pink teddy bear, which is an homage to the film Schindler's List, in which the color red is used to distinguish a little girl in a coat.
