Storyline

The former mayor gingerly approaches Frank after Jamie arrested his spoiled-rotten brat daughter, by the book, for drug possession and gross disrespect, which continues even in court. While Henry attends the funeral of his Hassidic friend, the New York grand rabbi, his junior son and designated successor is fatally stabbed just outdoors. Thus the firstborn, traditional successor becomes grand rabbi and prime suspect, or his bodyguard. Investigating, Danny and ex-Hassidic fellow detective Wolf Landsman find further possible motives in the rabbinical family's secret love life and consider further strong-armed acolytes opportunities.

Trivia

Frank while talking to Henry about why they did not have more kids alluded to an Irish-Catholic family in the mid 50's, suggesting that is when Frank had been born. Tom Selleck, who plays Frank, was born 10 years earlier in 1945. Henry, played by Len Cariou was born in 1939, so he is only 6 years older than Tom Selleck and would have been 16 in 1955. See more »

Goofs

Danny says something about the men being in a sauna. They're actually in a Steam room. (Steam rooms are wet, and tiled. Saunas are dry and usually cedar, or other hardwood.) See more »

Closed world
1 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

It's curious indeed that while seeing and then writing about this episode concerning a murder in the Hassidic Jewish community a real life story broke about how the NYPD broke a case involving two Hassidic men assaulting a gay black man in Williamsburg in Brooklyn. Some downright trickery was used to get the truth there.

Donnie Wahlberg has to use a few tricks of his own to get inside the closed world of the Hassidim. The Grand Rebbe of a certain sect who was a friend of his grandfather Len Cariou names the younger of the brothers his successor violating tradition. At the funeral where Cariou is in attendance the new Grand Rebbe is stabbed to death.

These people are very used to taking care of their own, but homicide has been done and that's a matter for the Goyim police. As it turns out it's for the oldest of motives.

Tom Selleck's former adversary when mayor Bruce Altman has his spoiled daughter arrested for smoking weed openly in public. The arresting officer is Will Estes. The fathers kind of circle the wagons to protect their offspring. But it all works out well in that situation also.

The traditional Reagan family dinner is the subject of some amusement as Jewish cuisine is substituted by a grateful community member. Nicely done story.
