Somebody Grab a Crowbar and Jimmy Me out of This Show!

Honor - A huge fire becomes the least interesting plot line in this season's history. Jimmy finds out he's to be the father of a co-worker's unborn child, after his bathroom tryst with Lombardo's girlfriend. A football sequence lasts forever. And Omar signs off on this, the last MBTV Third Watch recap.

Welcome to Hell. We Have an Entire Wing Devoted to You.

The Self-Importance Of Being Carlos - Carlos -- who up 'til now has been relegated to second-tier doofus on the show -- gets his episode, in which we realize he's even more self-centered, stupid and obnoxious than we imagined. After some deaths on the job, Carlos is sent to sensitivity training, where a bearded Eric Bogosian is just looking for a chick paycheck. It truly is worse than you can imagine.

Smells Like Corruption. That, or Kim's Soul.

Duty - Sully is yanked from his blissful nookie session with the cute Russian neighbor by charges that he's a corrupt cop. Well, guess what? He is! But only a little bit. Bosco has weird dreams, Carlos thinks Kim has a crush on him, and Bobby deals with euthanasia. It's a bit of a downer.

The Day of The Reckoning

A Hero's Rest - Omar insists this episode should be called The Reckoning because a lone gunman goes after NYPD cops, leading to several murders and a lot of soul searching by Yokas, Sully, Bosco and Ty. Bosco in particular gets caught up in some reflection while the murder of Ty's father is brought back with appropriate gravitas. Maybe it should have been called The Gravitas.
