It's Hard to Be a Saint in the City
14 August 2020 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

The title of this episode is derived from a Bruce Springsteen song. It is from the album Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. which had a number of wordy songs.

The episode is pulling its disparate wordy story lines together. Especially those relating to the personal lives of DeCourcy and Jackie.

Jackie is thrown out of his house when his wife finds out about his affair. DeCourcy confronts the philandering pastor who is accusing his wife of spreading lies.

Frankie Ryan also has problems. His mother is in hospital and he needs money to pay the medical bills.

The best part is seeing Jackie's cunning. When he meets an ex Vietnam soldier suffering from PTSD. Jackie genuinely feels sorry for him. His brother is a suspect in supplying the guns used in killing of the guards in the armoured car. Jackie now has a link to the gun. This puts the heat on Frankie.

Jackie might be pleased with himself but it is short lived when he hears that his daughter is missing. There is an unexpected dark aspect to this and someone is going pay badly for it.

At least the fragmented stories are going forward and the pacing might be upped. More importantly Jackie needs to find money quickly and for that he needs to do another job.
