Yeah, the subject was a downer, but I actually liked the ending, though it did get me choked up too. The whole business with Danny going off on the suspects... totally unrealistic, but it's at the point now where this sort of thing is almost to be expected on cop shows, regardless of how far from reality it may be.
Also, excellent guest cast last night! Henry Rollins and Mare Winningham were great but underused, and I immediately knew Don Swayze's character was going to be wrong for something
the moment they pulled him out of the van. (I remember him as a heavy in a Season 2 episode of NYPD Blue.)
