Jamie is pleased to be teamed up with an academy friend, whom he can teach a lot about human nature. The Reagans soon realize a bank-robber, who gets trapped unlike his accomplices and takes a hostage, knows police lingo and procedure too well not to be former colleague Bill Flood, and work out he was once on Frank's top-secret SCI crack team, but freaked over a family drama.

Bluebloods ****
8 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode depicts what the cops'families go through and is even better, when it shows that the human element is involved. Police are human too and will do just about anything when their families are involved.

The hostage situation in the bank may have been predictable, and just so convenient that the diamond merchant, a guy wearing a Yarmulka, was licensed to use a gun and used it to kill one of the perpetrators. How convenient that the teller was a nursing school dropout and was able to comfort our religious victim.

The story then focuses in on the remaining bandit in the bank. An ex-cop whose daughter needs a life-saving heart transplant and as a result, he works with the other 2 guys to rob the bank.

Politics is never overlooked. When Danny goes into the bank to try to resolve the situation, the press clamors that his father, the commissioner, has done this for political gain. Does political machinations ever stop?

Yet, it is Danny's wife who shows great emotion when she confronts her cowboy-like husband after the hostage drama ends, and her discussion with her sister-in-law about the lives of a cop's family.
