“THIS IS THE DAY I DREAD EVERY DAY I’M ON THE JOB”

.

Don’t get me wrong, I think young people are swell, and have all kinds of interesting ideas and opinions on things that we should pretend to give a damn about. But, if, as I suspect, CBS.com has handed over the episode summary writing to some wet behind the ears, zit cream applying teenybopper heads are in need of rolling. I mean it. It’s unacceptable, and I know they know it. Enough said.

“Frank goes on high alert when a threat to New York City may be imminent following a terrorist attack in the Middle East”

Later, while in a meeting with Assistant District Attorney for Manhattan (who is also his daughter), Erin Reagan the following conversation regarding a suspected terrorist hideout takes place:

Commissioner Reagan: I think it’s better to ask forgiveness than permission on this one.

Assistant District Attorney Erin Reagan: Dad, you are moving on one man’s uncorroborated story. What if you raid that apartment, kill three Muslims, and don’t find a single bomb on site? That’s a lot of backfire that you’re standing in front of.

Commissioner Reagan: When I consider the alternative, I’ll take that risk.

“OH, YOU MISSED BAND PRACTICE, HUH? WHAT A TRAGEDY”

.

While the following is an about average attempt at a summary, it, perhaps purposely, leaves out a terrifying event that takes place at the end of the episode which will shake the Reagan family to its core.

“When NYPD Deputy Chief Donald Kent, a commanding officer of the gang division, and his wife are gunned down in an apparent gang hit, Frank orders all hands on deck to catch his friend’s killer. Working the case, Danny and Baez go see Mario Hunt, a well-known member of a deadly gang.”

Detective Reagan, frustrated at having to go “by the book” while tracking down the scumbags who viciously shot to death Deputy Chief Donald Kent and his wife on their 30th wedding anniversary, responds to Trent’s, “Chill, dude, I just did” with

“How ’bout YOU chill, DUDE”
