When Danny is talking to the groom after his new wife has been shot and killed in the drive-by shooting, the wound on the groom's head changes from shot to shot. Sometimes there are two butterfly stitches on the wound, sometimes there's just one stitch, and the blood smear changes appearance. See more »

3.4 is ***1/2
20 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nice to see that Jamie (Will Estes) finally had a larger part in this episode.

The problem we face sometimes when we have several stories within an episode is that we need more development in one or more of the stories. In other words, one of the stories would seem to dominate while the others fall by the way side. This is what happened in this episode; although, it was still a good one.

It was great of Frank to tell that third world dictator where he should go. Too much in resources is used to protect these scoundrels.

We also had a cocky officer who along with Jamie used stop and frisk incorrectly; although, the one stopped was carrying an illegal item and was subsequently found to be stashing away a gun.

The tragic shooting of a bride on her wedding day brought us back to the groom who indirectly caused her death by stealing from a gang. This was the story which needed further development.
