What a week it was.

Today at 2:50, Boston and all of New England will observe a moment of silence for the lives lost in the Boston Marathon bombing one week ago...a shocking event that terrorized a city during one of its greatest celebrations.

The week that followed was filled with tension as the FBI and local law enforcement searched for suspects, motives, some answers.

Then, the first real break...with the release of pictures, showing two brothers - Cambridge residents, ethnic Chechens as the suspects.

We woke up Friday morning to stories of gun battles with police - another cop dead, one suspect dead, and terror and explosions in the streets of Watertown.

A city shut down - silent for a day.

Then, the dramatic capture of 19 year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Today, Colin McEnroe joins me to try to make sense of what we learned...and what’s next.
