Finding a kidnapper, past affects the future.

Inspector Thomas Brackenreid, Murdoch's boss loses his temper a lot. He gets mean in many episodes and uses what he can to get the results. You will see a lot of emotional mood changes in this episode.

This episode starts with Mrs Brackenreid his wife and a nanny sitting and talking in a park while young Brackenreid is playing pirates with his friend. The young friend has a rich family named Stanton. They both are around 7 years old.

A woman's starts screaming and the ladies get off the bench to see what happened. The lady said a man stole her purse. Mrs Brackenreid and a nanny talk with her a bit then go back to where they were. They find out the Brackenreid boy left with a man and was kidnapped.

Inspector Thomas Brackenreid panics and sees his wife in pain. At some boy he confesses how he wish he was a better father. It is kind of good advice to fathers when he admits what he could have done better. He is brought a message by Mr Stanton that the kidnapper wants money for the boy. The problems is Stanton's son is not the boy the boy that was kidnapped and Brackenreid is afraid they will kill his son once they find out.

A lot of investigating is done. It appears Stanton's son was adopted and the mother of this kid just got out of prison.

Murdoch stays very dedicated to treat everyone fairly and not let his emotions affect his investigation and he calms those cops down that get out of hand.

The end is good but very emotional for all concerned and kind of heartbreaking.
