Muldoon juggles various situations, including warning his gangster uncle Mr. O not to challenge the head of the west side Irish Mob and schooling the new recruit Shea how the division actually works. Muldoon also struggles to raise his family in the increasingly violent Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood, disciplining his 13 year-old son when he acts up at school. Muldoon’s partner Bullman develops a soft spot for a beautiful high-end call girl after Bullman and Muldoon arrest her for solicitation.
