The sneak peek below from the premiere starts off innocently enough, with Donnie Wahlberg’s character going on a tear about the trouble with superheroes these days to go along with zombies. (Suddenly, we find ourselves interested in seeing Danny appear on an episode of “Talking Dead.”)
Unfortunately, the funny banter comes to a close fairly quickly as Danny is told that there is trouble coming for him, and that he may face a good bit more investigation stemming from what happened to Thomas Wilder at the end of this past season. He faces a stern warning here, and has to look ahead to what this could mean for him. These are tricky waters that he has to navigate through, given that at the time in which he shot him, Danny did feel that he was in danger, and did not know for absolute certainty whether Wilder was carrying a gun. Therefore, he made the move that he thought was best for him at that particular moment in time. The problem here is that this thought was generated in a way out of emotion, and anger towards what Wilder had done to his family and the threat he still presented to their safety. These are the ways in which the character could be in trouble.
Overall, we expect this to be a dramatic, difficult premiere, especially given that Danny is going to have to defend himself at a time when police shootings are under a much more intensive microscope than usual. We’ll be back after it airs with a full review.
