Well, they sort of almost reasonably set it up.
Commissioner McMillan calls in Gordon. Hands him a piece of paper
making him a Captain (it requires Gordon's signature at the bottom to
take effect, which seems sort of wonky). Apparently the promotion
requires taking over the precinct, as if these things are inseparable.
Gordon says he won't do that to Bullock. Mac says Bullock is gone
either way, and the other candidates for Captain are all in P.N. Guin's
pocket. The Commish tells Gordon he can think about it. Gordon finds
Bullock drunk and skirting his duties, so he signs the paper. My
complaint is that he didn't sit Harvey down and tell him what was going
Now, if you want to complain about something, how about the bullets?
Last week a bunch of cops got shot.
They have a ceremony where each injured cop gets presented the bullet
that was dug out of them, now gold plated.
Bullock has the bullets in a lovely presentation box, all unmarked as to
which is which.
And they haven't caught the guy that shot (most of) the cops yet so ...
these are evidence in an active cop killing investigation!!!
