Jamie is pleased to be teamed up with an academy friend, whom he can teach a lot about human nature. The Reagans soon realize a bank-robber, who gets trapped unlike his accomplices and takes a hostage, knows police lingo and procedure too well not to be former colleague Bill Flood, and work out he was once on Frank's top-secret SCI crack team, but freaked over a family drama.

Did You Know?


There are three versions of the NYPD patch used in this episode. The first - seen on a squad car outside the bank 22 minutes in - is the real NYPD patch. The second - seen on an ESU officer's sleeve as Frank arrives a few seconds later - is the version most commonly used in the first 2-3 seasons that doesn't say "City Of New York" and instead goes with just "New York" on the sides of the department logo. The third and final one - seen on another squad car a further few seconds later - replaces the "Police Department" on the top of the real NYPD patch with "City Of New York". See more »

Near and dear to the Reagans
22 June 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Three bank robbers wearing masks and who look like they know what they are doing hold up a bank. But those things you never count on always occur. A civilian who was a diamond dealer had a licensed weapon and he shoots one. Another helps the wounded guy out of the bank and the third is left in the bank with two hostages.

Donnie Wahlberg and Jennifer Esposito catch the case. It turns out the one left in the bank is near and dear to the Reagan family especially the older ones Tom Selleck and Len Cariou.

I won't say any more, but there are plot elements in this one that are from one of my favorite noir films Kansas City Confidential.

Watch and see what I mean.
