Worthy closer to the third season
11 August 2015 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

The transport with everyone's salary money gets robbed. Belker (essayed with growly gusto by Bruce Weitz) and LaRue (sturdy Kiel Martin) track down the man who shot Washington (an engaging turn by Taureen Blacque). Benedetto (a bravura portrayal by Dennis Franz) busts Rollie (a terrific Michael Lerner). Furillu (Daniel J. Travanti, typically superb) finds Martinez (a nicely swaggering Trinidad Silva) behind bars.

The payroll robbery subplot provides a good deal of tension and humor, LaRue's loyalty to his partner Washington is quite touching, and there's some really funny business involving Furillo and Davenport (a positively ravishing Veronica Hamel) trying (and failing) to get some time alone together for a little afternoon delight. Moreover, the storyline with Benedetto gets resolved in this show's customary uncompromisingly grim manner while the ultimate outcome of struggling junkie Rico's (ace work from Marco Rodriguez) attempts to kick his habit proves to be simply heartbreaking.
