Pablo Torres
Esteban Torres


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

Family is everything
23 March 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This particular Blue Bloods story finds Bridget Moynahan testing family loyalty involving one of her cases. She's trying desperately to take down South Bronx gang leader Francis Capra. Feeling frustrated she decides to leverage his straight arrow brother Max Arcienigra who is a teacher who has founded an early learning center in the South Bronx with some laundered rackets money from Capra.

This is ironic because she comes from a family where family loyalty is all. It was a task she really didn't have her heart in. But later on when Capra is murdered she and Donnie Wahlberg find a most creative way to take down the whole bunch.

In fact even Arcienigra comes out ahead due to some words Tom Selleck speaks in the right ears. You have to see the episode to know what I'm talking about.

You won't be disappointed.
