That was completely different.
Normally Blue Bloods presents a number of unrelated tales, however the connection between Erin's, Eddie / Jamie's, and Danny / Baez's story is in Blue Bloods Season 11 Episode 12 it was a refreshing change.
Additionally uncommon: Baker had an important story of his personal, including depth to his character.
I'm so used to tales being unrelated that it took me a minute to appreciate that Erin's case was the identical gun possession case as Eddie's.
Nevertheless, this labored on a number of ranges.
For one factor, we hardly ever, if ever, discover out what occurs to criminals after they’re arrested.
Normally the one motive Erin is concerned within the case of one in every of her brothers is so Danny or Jamie can harass her a few courtroom order or no matter else they want and don't have.
But it surely made excellent sense that Erin was concerned in prosecuting the fellows Eddie picked up throughout a routine visitors cease, and it may have gone plenty of instructions.
At first, it appeared like Erin felt in her intestine that Charles Hayes was harmless, or on the very least, that he wasn't getting a good deal.
She was anticipating one other battle between her and Crawford on how one can proceed with this case, however fortunately, Crawford took the week off to rile Erin (and viewers!).
As an alternative, we bought the sort of story that was typical for Blue Bloods earlier than Crawford appeared as a continuing thorn in Erin's aspect and vice versa.
Erin needed to ensure Hayes had truthful illustration although she deliberate to prosecute him as nicely. And with out Crawford there to intrude, he was capable of engineer issues in order that he would tackle Jack and even make a guess with him.
I'm certain his new boss wouldn't have accredited of that, however it was much more enjoyable than he anticipated.
Anthony: So that you prefer it? Do you want being round him?
Erin: Sure, I like being round him. That’s the reason I as soon as married him.
Anthony: Effectively, I don't like him. Do you wish to hear why?
Erin: No, I don't know, as a result of I've heard all of it from my household.
Anthony: So why don't you hearken to everybody who loves you?
Erin: As a result of they’ve towards him all of the dangerous issues that he has executed in his life perpetually. It's like Irish Alzheimer's. They overlook all the pieces besides the grudges.
For probably the most half, I'm with Anthony and Danny on this one. Jack has been an issue for so long as I can bear in mind, and each time Erin offers him one other probability, he finally ends up hurting her once more.
If I needed to ship Erin with somebody, it might be Anthony, not Jack. And I couldn't assist however surprise if Anthony was jealous by the way in which he talked about Jack being a jerk at any time when he may.
However for as soon as, Jack determined to not be a complete seedy and even provided to let Erin out of the weekend getaway after he gained the case. So there it’s.
Danny and Baez's investigation was a hell of much more attention-grabbing than the Erin / Jack stuff, although they solved the case primarily as a result of Romano's ex-wife determined to be a jerk.
Did the ex-wife of a former mobster actually suppose she may kind of order an assault by way of a Fb publish and escape detection? Precisely how silly was she?
He didn't belief her when she stated Hayes texted her about Romano. He may have came upon about Hayes's arrest and given Danny his identify to divert him from the path of the actual killer.
In addition to, why was Hayes so keen to make Miles's provide? In tv conspiracies of this nature, one individual often makes all the choices, however there was no actual rationalization.
When Baez talked about soul mates and folks you’d do something for, I believed that Miles and Hayes have been going to be lovers. That a minimum of would have defined Hayes' slavish demeanor.
The story labored with out that rationalization, however nonetheless. I like that all the pieces is sensible, and that doesn't.
The opposite unfastened finish that most individuals in all probability didn't take care of: This complete crime unit factor disappeared after Jamie and Eddie's combat.
He wasn't even certain what the crime unit was; in any case, all police departments ought to be towards crime.
However in any case, nothing got here of Jamie's determination besides that Eddie bought upset. That unit did little additional investigation and Erin went to Eddie, not the cops who got the case when she was attempting to find out who owned that gun.
And it wasn't like the opposite cops have been bothered within the least by that.
Eddie additionally didn't get into hassle attempting to analyze on his personal regardless of Jamie's orders.
As an alternative, all of it felt like a plot level designed to make Eddie fear about combating Jamie.
I beloved her conversations with Erin and Jamie about it, particularly when Jamie assured her disagreement was not going to wreck their marriage.
However I want there have been different penalties for Jamie's determination apart from that argument.
The one case that was unrelated to the others was the Baker assault.
He had by no means so wished that Blue Bloods and the Legislation & Order franchise have been on the identical channel as they have been throughout this story.
Each time Frank talked about Particular Victims, I saved imagining how a lot enjoyable it might have been for Baker to have labored with the members of Law & Order: SVU to catch this serial rapist.
Regardless, this was the most important story Baker had in a very long time, and it was one of many strongest tales from Frank and his crew this season. The one one which even got here shut was Sid's psychological breakdown in Blue Bloods Season 11 Episode 9.
Baker's refusal to again down from investigating her personal case and her feeling that Frank seen her as little greater than a receptionist made for a compelling drama, and I believed she was actually going to give up her job and return to work at countryside.
And though nobody stated it immediately, her want to alter jobs and her refusal to view herself as a sufferer of against the law may have been associated to her want for management after her assault.
Baker's passionate protection of Garrett was additionally one in every of his strongest performances.
I used to be shocked when he steered that Frank's downside was that Baker's vulnerability reminded him that everybody was human and that any police officer may endure violence.
She hadn't thought of that and had caught the sensation of Baker as being checked out in a different way as a girl who had been attacked than she would have if she have been a person.
It's your flip, Blue Bloods followers.
