Strain on family ties.
8 September 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The whole Reagan family got involved in this one story. A young female officer, wife and mother, dies when she's shot pursuing a suspect. As it happens it's Will Estes who is the first on the scene to respond.

It's also Donnie Wahlberg who captures the shooter. But it's Bridget Moynahan who lets him go because she feels the ID of an elderly witness won't stand up. Every cop in the city feels the widower's pain and anger which they take out on the NY County DA's office in certain ways.

And of course it's Commissioner Tom Selleck who has to deal with the whole tragic mess and keep peace in his own family.

The Reagans always come together, but this episode put a strain on family ties.
