Chief Reagan has little hope of calming grieving Russian mob lord Grushenko after the fatal shooting of his firstborn son, who was with an 'easy' girl at his wedding. Danny investigates gang and personal suspects. Jamie is startled by the reported 'suicide' of his Blue Templar investigation contact Linda. D.A. and mayoral election challenger Charles Rossellini hands Erin, the mayor's protégée, the high-profile case of the corruption-accused deputy mayor, which probably hangs on 'glorified delivery boy' Joshua Saunders.

Did You Know?


Danny states that the victim was shot three times with a .38 and no shell casing were found. The gun shown during the shooting was a semi-automatic so could not be a .38 and would have left shell casings in not picked up. See more »

Very Good Addition:
26 January 2011 | by (Cornwall) – See all my reviews

A Very Good Show: Good Plot twists, Great Character Development, and Plenty of intrigue and Action to go around! It seems you have to watch each new 1 very Closely, cause they (the Writers) often seem to Throw in a lot of Wicked Breaking Ball Stuff that just blows you away when it is shown, stuff you wouldn't likely have guessed was coming, particularly if you have not been paying attention during Previous Shows: Hmnn Odd thing for a person to say! I really hope this show gets a Full Pickup as it is 1 of the Better Shows available on TV: However I really liked Miami Medical & Three Rivers and they are both History, so maybe I know very Little! But I Digress! Cheers T:
