“IT IS NOT A FEUD. IT IS A TRADITION IN WHICH WE RUN ROUGHSHOD OVER THOSE HOSE DRAGGING HYDRANT SUCKERS TILL THEY CRY LIKE LITTLE GIRLS”

.

Get a load of this episode’s summary. Damn, hardly even need to actually watch the show after reading this epic. However, even with this over the top explanation, unsurprisingly, they leave the most important aspect of the story for the end, and cover it with one measly sentence.  You see, the rivalry between the two families (the Reagans and the Bonniellos) is about much more than who emerges victorious at the annual soap box derby. It is also about the long, and well established, history of disputes between the NYPD (the Reagans) and the NYFD (the Bonniellos), as well as, in Grandpa Henry Reagan’s mind,  personal revenge for a decades old school yard fight between himself and Sal Bonniello that left Henry with a chipped tooth and grounding for a week.

“When two drug deals involving Wall Street brokers turn into homicides, Danny and Baez look to a wounded accomplice to ID the dealer behind the shootings, but Linda hinders the investigation by postponing questioning due to hospital policy. After the accomplice dies during surgery, Danny finds himself fighting with Linda about her medical decision versus his judgment as a detective. Just as the case looks to have gone cold, Baez locates the accomplice’s sister who matches the description of the shooter’s girlfriend and they take down the perpetrator hiding at her apartment. Meanwhile, Erin struggles with ambition clouding her judgment when she discovers that the bureau chief who gave her a promotion purposely overlooked a piece of evidence in a past case. Frank and Jamie help Sean build a derby car for his race and stop Henry from rigging the car in order to beat a rival family.”

“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”

“YOU PEOPLE DESERVE THIS, YOU ALL DESERVE THIS”

The following description of ‘Blue Bloods’ Season 5, Episode 17, found at CBS.com, is disappointingly inadequate, and I present it here with the reminder to you people that I AM IN NO WAY RESPONSIBLE FOR IT.

 

“Erin is rattled when an unknown assailant breaks into her apartment and also attacks her co-worker. Meanwhile, Jamie and Eddie discover a pipe bomb* in an elderly woman’s apartment, and Frank looks into a charity that is soliciting money for the NYPD”

-CBS.Com ‘Blue Bloods’ season 5, episode 17 summary

.

*The pipe bomb, discovered by Officers Reagan and Janko, belonged to John Johanssen (a flatmate of the elderly woman) who is described by another flatmate (Maria, the junkie) as follows:

“…a jerk, another middle age white dude bitching about minorities taking his job. With a big chip on his shoulder. One time he talked about blowing up whoever it was who fired him, but, I just thought he was talking out his ass.”

 

.

After running some ‘calculations’ in conjunction with a ‘meticulous review’ of individual frames of the scene from the episode in question I have determined that Officer Jamie Reagan, through what I’m sure would be described as a feat accomplished only by an expert marksman, was able to place a round from his ‘Glock 19’ (standard issue of the NYPD) squarely in the madman’s forehead (and subsequently save the lives of countless innocent individuals) at a distance of approximately 26 feet.(see illustration below)
