Storyline

Latino street gang lord Pablo Torres is too careful to be prosecuted for his crimes. So Danny and Erin hope to get to him via his 'kid' brother, second chance education teacher and chief Esteban, a brilliant mathematician. The doubly immoral blackmail fails, but Pablo is murdered. Jamie protests when on top of customary hazing, at his age much more unruly, hence paternally spanked Danny reproaches him turning down grandpa's now illegal bludgeon. The mayor and his challenger, popular present D.A. Charles Rosselini, both want chief Frank's election support (at least passively) badly. Written by KGF Vissers

Wonderful Problem of Ethics Debated Here ****
6 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Can this show get any better? Keep this up and you'll be waltzing down the aisle when the Emmy's and Golden Globe Awards are handed out in 2011.

In this episode we meet The Webster Ave. Boys of the Bronx. They're an infamous gang who claim to own the streets. The leader of the gang has a brother who is a high school math teacher in the N.Y.C. school system. (Perhaps, he could use the gang's experience in improving school discipline.)

It seems that the bad brother has been funneling money into an academy set up by the teacher brother. Reagan's daughter wants him to testify and this causes a reaction by the family.

For the 2nd straight episode, Donnie Wahlberg is not dominant here. Sunday dinner as usual is used to clear the air once the situation has been resolved. We also see some friction between Wahlberg and the younger brother. The latter is still into investigating his dead brother's affiliation with that certain society.

Tom Selleck makes a wonderful patriarch of a very dedicated and earnest family. He proves his mettle over and over again.
