Storyline

Chief Reilly is facing severe repercussions after beating up a gay firefighter. In a desperate attempt to find a witness who will testify on his behalf, Chief Reilly seeks out a bartender who was present during the altercation at the gay bar. Tommy is growing increasingly jealous of his ex-wife's new relationship. Additionally, he doesn't exactly receive the sympathy he is expecting when he vents to Sheila about his depression in dealing with the break-up of his marriage. Of course Sheila is unsympathetic since she lost her husband Jimmy on 9/11. Lou inquires with a post-traumatic stress group about possibly sharing his poetry. Written by WyattJones

Gritty, Powerful, especially for the year it was released
14 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode has an amazing start thats fully charged and action packed. From the opening scene to the closing titles I didn't find myself bored or thinking "how much longer?" a single time.

The episode roughly revolves around the aftermath of a fight at a local gay bar and an upcoming hockey match between the NYPD and the FDNY. The "probie" seems like a good player but a certain member of the hockey team has some doubts which get settled in only a way that the sport of hockey can depict.

Another storyline revolves around the main character and his father who without giving it away have an awesomely dubbed sub-titled scene which leaves this viewer laughing.

All in all this episode focuses on change and how change effects us in both a positive and a negative way. Highly recommended and a great episode!
