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.

They Don't Make them Better than This ****
1 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Superb episode where Danny is having a bad day. A tiff with his wife and his workers in the precinct,this all leaves him is a miserable mood. When he is out in the field, he is as nasty as well and this soon leads to a tragic shooting of a fellow officer.

The one thing that Danny has going for him is that the officer hadn't identified himself as a cop. Despite this, it begins to appear that Danny's erratic behavior led to the tragedy and Danny is placed on modified duty.

A true cop through and through, Danny goes through the steps of what led to the tragedy and it all comes out very clearly why the cop didn't identify himself.

You can imagine what pop Tom Selleck has to go through as Police Commissioner with stories swirling around the shooting. The ending is heartwarming which shows the camaraderie among officers. That hospital scene will tug at you.
