Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Sgt. Anthony Renzulli (as Nick Turturro)


Jimmy has a poor first impression of his cocky new partner Vinny Cruz, from a different precinct. Ignoring PR advice, Frank compromises himself when visiting the family of an honest cop's hasty mistake fatal victim, then antagonizes the while force by bluntly apologizing in the media, yet makes up by preventing the traumatized cop's suicide attempt. Incorrigible criminal Garrett Moore, who lost everything when duly arrested by Danny, finally made parole and is likely to make true his promise to exact revenge, on Danny or his family.

Did You Know?


The name of Michael Madsen's character was "Benjamin Walker." This name is very similar to the name, "Benjamin Barker," which was "Sweeney Todd's" name, before he changed it. Both characters were on missions of vengeance, concerning a wife and child. Also, Len Cariou, who plays the "patriarch" of the Reagan family, originated the role of "Sweeney Todd" (the musical) on Broadway. See more »

3.1 Season Opener is ****
29 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tom Selleck proves his mettle here when a police officer accidentally shoots an innocent person to death on the street. While his statement is unpopular to the union and officers, Selleck knew it had to be done and then turns hero himself when the devastated officer contemplates suicide.

The episode is also terrific as Danny, shows his human emotion and that he is vulnerable just like everyone else in the world. He sheds his tough guy persona and turns in a wonderful performance as an officer threatened by a man he helped send to prison. The latter blames him for his estrangement from his wife and son and their subsequent deaths. How Danny handles the situation he is thrust into is memorable to see.

This show continues to be a great one and I expect that to continue during this new season.
