“PRAY TO WHAT GOD, FOR WHAT? JUST CUT THE CRAP. JUST STOP KIDDING OURSELVES. ADMIT THAT IT’S A LOSING BATTLE”

If you haven’t yet watched season 3, episode 23 of ‘Blue Bloods’ I advise you not to read the summary provided below as it really contains way too much information. What is with the drunks down at CBS.com who write these anyway? One day the summary is something like “The Reagans have a little bit of trouble, eat dinner, and say a prayer”, and then the next day it’s as if they’re getting paid by the word. Jesus, how hard can it be, aren’t these people ‘professionals’? Well, regardless of the incompetence of those fools down at CBS.com this episode kicks ass. Not only does Officer Jamie Reagan (the youngest of the Reagans to join the NYPD, and a Harvard trained Lawyer to boot) suffer a crisis of faith, as we all have at one time or another, right? right?, he also receives some words of wisdom from Grandpa Henry Reagan who responds to Jamie’s questioning of whether or not God can hear us with the following:

“He can always hear you, but you have to listen very carefully for his response.”

“As Danny continues his investigation into the Los Lordes gang, he and Baez initially come up empty on leads until they track gang leader Santana’s car. After getting a warrant to search the vehicle, they find drugs concealed inside and arrest Santana’s girlfriend Nona behind the wheel. Santana refuses to turn himself in in exchange for her release, and after Santana orders a hit on her in jail, he and Baez are able to convince Nona to testify against him. Meanwhile, when a mentally challenged teenager fires shots at Frank and Mayor Poole during a town hall meeting, the mayor is left critically injured. Jamie suspects the teen was put up to the assassination attempt and coaxes him into identifying the Los Lordes gang member who tricked him into the task. With Hector’s testimony and Nona’s corroboration, Frank is able to take down Santana and the majority of the Los Lordes gang.”
