‘Shades of Blue’ Episode Guide (May 14): Harlee and Wozniak Take Down a Brutal Mobster

“The Quality of Mercy” (05/14/17) – Harlee (Jennifer Lopez) and Wozniak (Ray Liotta) lead the crew on a dangerous mission to heist Bianchi’s (guest star Ritchie Coster) secret ledger and take down the mobster once and for all.

But the plan takes a tragic turn when the events our heroes set in motion put one of their own in harms way, forcing Harlee to turn to an unlikely source for help.

Guest starring in this episode is Dov Davidoff.

Harlee Santos (Jennifer Lopez) is a charismatic single mother and resourceful detective at the heart of a tight-knit crew of Brooklyn detectives, led by enigmatic Lt. Matt Wozniak (Ray Liotta) who often leads the team to step outside the limitations of the law in order to effectively protect their precinct and their own.

Harlee navigates her fractured relationship with Wozniak as she struggles to conceal her deepest secret: She killed her daughter’s father. Following his discovery that Harlee collaborated with the FBI, Wozniak is confronted with a gut-wrenching dilemma of his own. The crew is under tight scrutiny from Stahl (Warren Kole) and the FBI as well as from Internal Affairs, in the form of a gregarious detective, Verco (guest star Dov Davidoff), who investigates the disappearance of one of their own. Meanwhile, a former member of their crew, Julia Ayres (guest star Anna Gunn) runs for mayor and her complex relationship with Harlee and Wozniak comes to the fore. Neither Harlee nor Wozniak anticipates that Ayres’ corrupt connections will trap them in a dangerous war with the Mafia.

The cast includes Drea de Matteo (“Sopranos,” “Sons of Anarchy”), Dayo Okeniyi (“Terminator: Genisys,” “Hunger Games”), Vincent Laresca (“The Aviator,” “Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift”), Hampton Fluker (“Aquarius,” “The Blind Side”), Sarah Jeffery (“Rogue,” “Wayward Pines”) and Gino Anthony Pesi (“Dallas,” “The Vampire Diaries”). Anna Gunn (“Breaking Bad,” “Gracepoint”) is a recurring guest star.

Showrunner Jack Orman (“Men of a Certain Age,” “ER,” “Pan Am”) and Jennifer Lopez (“The Boy Next Door,” “The Fosters”) serve as executive producers along with Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas (“Extant,” “The Fosters”), Benny Medina (“The Boy Next Door,” “The Fosters”), Creator Adi Hasak (“Eyewitness,” “3 Days to Kill”), Ryan Seacrest (“Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” “Shahs of Sunset”) and Nina Wass (“Mixology,” “Golden Girls”).

“Shades of Blue” is a production of Universal Television, Nuyorican Productions, EGTV, Ryan Seacrest Productions and Jack Orman Productions.
