User Reviews

Like you said, Dooley's old school. They won't kill a cop.
9 October 2017 | by Mrpalli77See all my reviews

A cop serving his duty in Queens was shot inside his car at night in Broad Channel neighborhood. Detectives right away figured out he lived above his means (fancy home, overseas property in the Caribbean); it's not hard to imagine he was dirty. Then the investigation lead to the local boss, an old style Irish mobster who now plays the informant in order to keep the place clean from outsiders (he doesn't want any Jamaican or Russians inside the island); he's very stoned cold, he doesn't care of anyone except him, not even his next to kin. The Major Case detectives have to work hard to deal with the reluctant local police officers, who wants to take the law into their own hands. Anyway they managed to get out.

After Ross' death, a new police officer is in charge in the squad: Zoe Callas (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, aka Gina Montana, Scarface's sister); we saw her briefly at the beginning of the episode.
