Another excellent episode involving the usual ethics. A 13 year old boy is the witness to his father's death and he fingers a guy who has been cooperating with Homeland Security in trying to foil terrorist plots.

Jamie is suspended for violating a superior officer's orders. Frank had no choice but to allow this despite the fact that Danny felt that it was in the best interest to accompany a young boy to the hospital.

The very best part comes later when the terrorist mentioned above turns the tables and holds Erin, her ex-husband, the judge and others in court. As a result of this, we are left wondering if there is a possibility of reconciliation between Erin and her former husband.

Smart to see that the Regan family had a code among them that indicates that one is about to shoot.
