Blue Bloods Review: "Brothers"

by at . Comments

The best scene in “Brothers” takes place when Danny, Jamie, grandpa Henry and Frank are sitting around over beers, talking about grandpa’s black jack slapper.  It’s an unauthorized weapon. 

For those who didn't see it, it’s about eight inches of steel covered in leather and can be used to gain the upper hand in close fighting.  When Jamie turns it down, Danny mocks his brother, but Frank chimes in that he never used one.  Danny responds: “You're 6’4” and you’ve got hands of stone.”  I just had to laugh.  Tom Selleck really does tower over the rest of this cast.

When Jamie finds Joe’s iPod, was I the only one who was surprised that it started right up? 

Joe was killed a while ago. That battery would be long dead.  But with the iPod working, we get to hear Joe’s cryptic message about his investigation into the Blue Templar and that he was suspicious of his FBI contact. 

I still can’t understand why Jamie doesn’t bring this straight to his father.  Jamie’s a rookie, his father’s the Police Commissioner.  Moreover, they seem to have a close relationship.  It seems like Frank would be the one person he’d trust.

I’m still not sold on this Blue Templar story overall.  It just doesn’t seem like the show needs it.  I suppose they’re using it to give Jamie some added depth, but we’re seven episodes in and it’s just not working for me.

What happened to Danny’s partner, Jackie?  We’re back on the partner merry-go-round and I’m not happy about it. Jennifer Esposito (as Jackie) has a spark the others lack.  Danny and Jackie have great banter and it adds something to the show.  I want her back.  How about you?

Jackie added grit AND beauty to this show.
Her replacement is not nearly as magnetic.

I think Jennifer Esposito is a much partner for Danny!

For several episodes I've been wondering who will take the fall in the blue templar arc. All characters seemed likeable. Lo and behold an ex-cop, unlikeable DA is introduced. I think we have our evil doer.
