Frank goes into his office and meets with Agent Mills from homeland security and Chief Bell.
"What You See"
The scene opens with NYPD going up to an apartment of a Muslim and they tell him to freeze. At the Reagan’s home, Henry and Erin are getting ready to go for a picnic when Frank gets a call that he has to take. Danny gets a call as well and tells that he can’t joint Erin and Henry either. Frank is briefed that they have Steven Hassan in custody for a terrorist threat and he is the same man from earlier taken into custody. He is told that there was a computer made to a bridge and Frank thinks that the target is a bridge. He tells Frank that the car that has the explosive built inside is a dark SUV and the target city is Manhattan.
Frank goes into his office and meets with Agent Mills from homeland security and Chief Bell. They tell that they are searching SUVs and making sure that they’re no issues with that. He tells that it is going to take forever. Frank wants to know why they are just finding out now about Steven’s past. Chief Bell tells that the bomb inside is not a dirty bomb and will have an affect of 1 block radius. Chief Bell suggests that Danny interrogate Steven for his “effective” interrogation methods.
Henry and Erin are walking to the place they want to be when they see searches and wonder what is going on. Meanwhile, Danny and his boss are in the room and Steven is not talking about the bomb in the truck. Danny uses his “effective methods” but still no answer from him. Danny tells that he is going to get a glass of water. At Frank’s office, they translate an email that Steven got and it is a riddle of words. They try to distinguish between the true meaning behind the phrase.
Back in the interrogation room, Steven is still not talking and so Danny’s boss changes tactics and asks if Steven speaks Arabic. He translates a few words but on the world they feel means area, it is actually park. Meanwhile the SUV carrying the bomb arrives at the park. Frank meets with the Mayor who tells that they need to hold a press conference and tell people to stay away from parks. Frank doesn’t want to do this in fear that it will raise panic. The mayor tells that he has until 4 P.M. At the police station, Danny and Hotchkiss go through files of the people who were stopped and one file of Mary Jo Clarkson is flagged by Danny because she’s married to Alex Hassan, Steven’s cousin.
Danny goes to Alex Hassan’s home and asks where his wife is. Alex tells that Mary Jo and he divorced because she went Radical. He tells that he is supposed to meet in the park and she told him that they are all going to be in a peaceful place. Danny tells that she is going to kill him with a bomb. Meanwhile, Mary Jo and their son Jacob pull up to the place Alex is supposed to meet and she tells that they all are going to be in a peaceful place soon. Alex and Danny see her car and Danny tells him to stay back behind the monument. Danny goes to a payphone and calls in her location. He goes back to Alex and Mary Jo is inside holding the trigger to the bomb.
Danny talks with Alex and tells him that she wants to kill him despite his pleas to go over and talk to her. Danny goes over to the SUV and tells Mary Jo that he is a co-worker of Alex’s and tells that he is to take them to see him. She tells that she can’t leave her car and Danny tries to talk her down. Suddenly, Alex comes from his hiding place and Jacob sees him. Mary Jo tells him to get over to her and Danny tells him to stay back. Danny tells her not to push the trigger and tells that he understands that she doesn’t want to die alone. Meanwhile, Frank and the Mayor are watching the camera that is on the vehicle and tells them to follow Danny’s lead. Danny tells that he can arrange a meeting with Alex and her and everything will be fine. She slowly puts the trigger on the dash board and Hotchkiss pulls Jacob from the car and Danny holds Mary Jo and pulls her out of the car. Later Chief Bell tells that the bomb is defused and the Mayor has invited Frank to the press conference. Frank reminisces on 9/11 and he remembers when the Trade Center towers went down.
At home, they set up for Jack’s birthday and Danny comes in and tells that he got chewed out by everyone. Linda and Jack come in and they had a fun time at the Zoo. She tells that there was some incident downtown and that the subway was packed. She asks what is going on and they tell that they don’t need to worry about it. Erin asks where Henry’s can is and he tells that he needs to get his balance back if he is going to teach his grandson Hand Ball. Frank tells that they all went their separate ways today and somehow made it back all in one piece. They say a prayer and the episode ends.
