Episode Summary

My Blue Heaven
All Dan Patello ever wanted to do was follow in his father's footsteps and be a police officer. But Dan wasn't prepared for the rampant corruption within the force, and upon the birth of his son, began at 10-year 'career' of, among other things, taking bribes, planting evidence and lying in court. On his son's 10th birthday, he is shot and killed by a man who he had framed years earlier. Mr. Smith has no sympathy or patience for this dirty cop and doesn't want to defend him, seeing him as irredeemable. But Judge Othniel sees Dan's promise and sends him back as an Internal Affairs detective to prevent his younger self from starting down the wrong path. Along the way Dan discovers his father's secret, which he may not be able to accept. The judge also takes the opportunity to send Mr. Smith back as a priest with a bad record to help him learn the lessons of faith, forgiveness and patience.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Mr. Smith: He's been taking money for the past 10 years; planting evidence to get convictions, falsifying records, lying in court. He's done it all and that's just the highlight reel. He can't redeem himself, no way.
        Judge Othniel: Another mad dash to judgment, Mr. Smith. He's also a husband and a father and he has done a number of heroic deeds as a police officer.
        Mr. Smith: He's destroyed the lives of innocent people. Why should his life be redeemed?
        Judge Othniel: You must learn to look beyond the obvious.

      • Fr. Smith: Take it easy. Take it easy. Calm down. Julio didn't do anything, he just told you the truth.
        Det. Barbosa: And the truth shall set me free, right?
        Fr. Smith: That's what they say. Did you have any idea about your dad?
        Det. Barbosa: No. Never.
        Fr. Smith: A lot of lives are at stake here, Danny. This is your chance, your only chance, to make things right.

      • Priest: I was told to expect trouble from you.
        Fr. Smith: From who?
        Priest: From above.
