Danny’s achieved many favors for fellow cops, so who anticipated his friendship with Acosta to show right into a date?
On Blue Bloods Season 13 Episode 11, it appeared like Danny was serving to Acosta out as a result of he felt responsible that she obtained harm whereas protecting for him after Linda’s dying.
That is typical Danny. Deciding to ask her out on a date — after Sunday night dinner, no much less — wasn’t.
Blue Blood followers have debated Danny’s potential love life since Linda’s dying. Some followers ship Danny/Baez, whereas others assume that is a horrible concept and would fairly Danny date Maggie, the psychic performed by Callie Thorne.
It is nice for Blue Bloods to deliver somebody new in for Danny, however it’s irritating that he is supposedly recognized Acosta for years, but we have by no means heard of her earlier than.
Frank by no means did both, however that is sensible. Danny felt responsible that Acosta obtained harm protecting for him, and if he was interested in her on the time, it was too quickly after Linda’s dying to think about something new.
However the viewers might have been keyed right into a higher diploma than Frank. We did not must know that Danny had emotions for Acosta, however some interactions between them over time would have been good.
This new relationship had the texture of one thing made up and shoehorned into Danny’s backstory to make it make sense. After Linda died, there was by no means any point out of this Acosta particular person earlier than, and Danny by no means took any on-screen time for bereavement.
That is partially as a result of Amy Carlson declined to resume her contract, and Blue Bloods Season 8 Episode 1 picked up six months after Linda’s dying with none indications beforehand that she was gone.
Thus, any bereavement occurred earlier than we caught up with the now-widowed Danny.
As an apart, I can not imagine it is already been 5 years since Linda died! It would not look like it has been that lengthy in any respect.
Danny: Laura was there for me when Linda died. That is all there was to it.
Frank: , you, me, and Pop are the identical in quite a lot of methods and we have tried to make quite a lot of issues stick. One factor all of us have in frequent is that all of us misplaced our wives method too quickly. Me and Pop, we have made our peace with it. However you had been lots youthful than us. Perhaps do not comply with in our footsteps in that method.
5 years on, it is sensible that Frank would encourage Danny to maneuver on. This is not the primary time he is given Danny recommendation like this; it is solely the primary time Danny has acted on it.
In fact, we do not know but if issues will work out. Danny would possibly date Acosta just a few occasions and resolve there’s nothing there, opening the door for a special romance.
Whereas Frank probed for Danny’s emotions about Acosta, the favor Danny requested for was taken care of off-screen.
Frank’s interactions with Sid and Garett whereas he tries to navigate the politics of his workplace are a giant a part of Blue Bloods. The one such scene Frank had this time was a short dialog with Sid, and he spent his time coping with Danny’s potential love life as a substitute of Acosta’s incapacity pension challenge.
That is too unhealthy; it could have been attention-grabbing for Frank to go up in opposition to the medical board, and I would have cherished Garrett’s response to this.
A minimum of Danny and Baez had an attention-grabbing case, although it appeared extra like a car for Danny to attach with the sufferer’s son over guilt and loss.
I wished to know extra about this chess hustler that died. He gave the impression of he was pretty effectively off, however he was a part of a historically homeless neighborhood.
The ending of the story felt rushed. Danny and Baez discovered off-screen that Damien did not kill Shy and that the person seemingly overdosed on function, however there was no actual cause given for his choice to finish suicide.
I get that the purpose was for Danny to advise Eric to not let the guilt eat him alive and to learn these letters his dad had left for him as a substitute. However it felt like there have been quite a lot of unfastened ends right here.
Jamie’s story additionally left lots to be desired.
The story of Jamie attempting to make amends to a man he arrested unfairly might have been nice.
As an alternative, we obtained vignettes of Jamie dragging this man throughout city, attempting to offer him second probabilities that he neither wished nor wanted. Liam made it clear he wasn’t enthusiastic about Jamie’s friendship or makes an attempt to assist him, and he saved getting aggravated that Jamie stopped him from dropping his mood.
After a bizarre encounter with a bartender who refused to make a Bond martini correctly, Jamie abruptly popped up at a storage with Liam, the place some man agreed to rent him despite the fact that Liam threw a tantrum about needing assist fixing a automobile.
That was all for naught; the storage man by no means appeared once more, and as a substitute, Liam took a random particular person hostage to drive Jamie to arrest him as a result of he most well-liked the construction of life in jail.
Um… okay. What precisely was the purpose of this weird story?
The concept that some individuals cannot operate outdoors of jail, particularly after they’re thrown again into civilian life with no help, might make for a compelling story, however this wasn’t the best way to do it.
There wasn’t even a coherent story right here. Jamie talked about on the bar that he wished information on Liam’s confederate, Russo, however that obtained misplaced within the shuffle after Liam virtually obtained in a combat with a clumsy bartender. Then, it was one other day with out warning, and Jamie was serving to Liam get a job at a storage.
None of it made sense. It was random scenes of Jamie attempting and failing to assist this man.
Erin’s story might even have been stronger.
The ethics of the pastor asking for a quid professional quo weren’t part of this except you depend Erin and Crawford deciding to work collectively so they might deliver the man down for providing them each the endorsement as if this had been a weird actuality present.
When all was mentioned and achieved, they obtained justice for the child — and revenge as a result of they abruptly uncovered that the pastor was amassing cash for “charity” and utilizing it to line his pockets.
The concept of Crawford and Erin attempting to work collectively as a substitute of in opposition to one another was compelling, however it solely obtained one scene. And what’s going to occur to their respective campaigns now that they are now not enemies?
What did you assume, Blue Bloods fanatics? Am I too laborious on this episode, or was it one of many weaker installments?
