Storyline

Jamie has his first confidence crisis when he fails, to mentor Renzulli's dismay, to draw his gun on a suspect who might have been armed and dangerous. Bored investigating a minor domestic row, Danny makes a split second decision to shoot an armed man, who turns out to be undercover colleague Lou Tedesco, hospitalized in critical condition, actually with a recent previous, mentally and physically crippling wound. Lou's apparent target, junkie Tyler Lee, and his friends and family prove key to the case. Danny is suspended pending an official IA investigation, but still acts as if on duty. Written by KGF Vissers

Usually idealistic, this Blue Bloods required too much suspension of disbelief
27 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I like Blue Bloods, sort of. From the very beginning, it presented itself as an idealized version of the NYPD where corruption is swiftly rooted out and punished, and a multi-generational family of cops runs the gamut from rookie beat cop to decorated detective to dead hero son to retired police commissioner to current police commissioner.

In this idealized world, this multigenerational family is immune to the failings of normal human beings, and apparently also immune to rules and regulations of real city agencies. I'd like to know in what world a detective under investigation himself would be allowed to investigate the very shooting for which he is under investigation? It's such a clear and obvious violation of conflict of interest laws, it's laughable. And when the noble Police Commissioner gruffly announces that the decision to punish or not punish the detective in question, his equally noble son, for violating the terms of his modified duty, the viewer is led to believe that the Commissioner will do the right thing and suspend him.

But no. The noble detective son is restored to full duty.

I want to like this show more than I do. But this episode was annoying for the fact that Danny should have been suspended for violating the terms of his duty. I know most viewers loved the fact that Danny got away with it because he's written as such a good guy, but his actions were reckless and arrogant. There's nothing noble or ideal or good about what he did, and it would have been so much more noble had his commissioner-father done the right thing and required him to pay for his actions.
