Sneak Peek: Ray Without His Armor

"From there, the episode flashes forward, and it’s a nice change of pace for the show. There’s no need to sit in Ray’s post-Abby headspace any longer, and even though the time jump is small, it creates some necessary distance from last season’s events."

"Most importantly, 'Staten Island, Part 1' maintains some of the creative strength the show found last season, adding a pair of excellent supporting actors to the ensemble and continuing to give Liev Schreiber a platform to give one of the most consistent performances on television."
