Blue Bloods > Blue Bloods Review: Evil Comes Home > Comments Page 2
I think this episode may have been put together on the fly. I think the case of the week, and the Sunday Dinner scene, both wrapped up too quickly in order to give Jennifer Esposito a fitting farewell scene. It was the right thing to do, but it did hurt the overall episode.
This show, which I love, will not be the same without "Jackie" as Danny's partner!!! It's my feeling that this is a huge mistake and will definitely hurt the show's ratings.
1. It's really sad to see Jackie go, especially under the current circumstance behind the scene.
2. I kinda like the new partner (Kate Lansing), and I'm willing to give the character the benefit of the doubt. Since she's different character the dynamic between Danny and her is bound to be different (e.g she didn't take any crap from Danny).
I'm going to miss Jennifer Esposito, who worked wonderfully with Danny. I loved the way Frank solved Garrett's problem, sending in his father to give the woman a warning that she was messing with the wrong man. It really wasn't legal, was it? Heh heh heh. That tickled me. I wasn't really interested in the Catholic-Voodoo storyline, although if the poor guy was filled with a demon and now isn't, does he still have to do the time? We need Sam and Dean Winchester in on the case. Given that Hurricane Sandy devastated Manhattan and Halloween didn't take place as depicted on the show, I was getting chills watching the episode. If only New York children had enjoyed their Halloween that way for real! Love, Robin, Columnist, Winchester Family Business
I really liked Jackie and the relationship she had with Danny and the other Reagans. Too much revolving partners. With Danny and with Jamie. I will miss her and a lot will be lost on the show. Why is Frank jr. one dimensional? not even his father is so gruff all the time.
I will need to see how this plays out in the next few episodes to see if I continue with it.
Love, love, love Jennifer Esposito...great chemistry between her and Donnie Wahlberg. Too bad all around.
The gaffe by Garrett...holy cow! Talk about ripped from the headlines...odd that storyline and the Petraeus thing happened on the same day! Art imitates life! Also, great that Frank sent his dad to "fix" it!
This is a very strong show...CBS should put it at a day and time where it would get a strong following.
Love Blue Blood, I will miss Jackie, she added to the great cast. Jamie is the kind of cop we would all like to have. I liked the get ups for holloween. Love the way Tom Selleck gets things done without getting the glory. Strong show.
Danny would not have an affair. He adores his wife, and his father would clock him. Verbally. So would his sister, his grandpa, and his wife. The idea reminds me of something I read that Paul Newman said about his wife, back in the late '60's. Newman said, "Why go out for hamburger, when you have steak at home?" Danny's marriage strikes me as that kind of relationship.
As I have zero interest in either the Catholic Church or the voodoo religion, I appreciated the peripatetic way this episode ricocheted around amongst the various stories. Otherwise, I would have been bored. The only one which really caught my interest was Jamie's.
I agree it was horrible to see the gorgeous Ken Howard looking like that! I suppose old friends would say the same of me, if they saw me. My mother had Alzheimer's, and forgot everyone she knew after she was a teenager. It is an obscene condition. If it is indeed the policy of NYC hospitals not to look into where these folks belong, it is a disgrace. They turn into prey.
I did not like the partner of the episode at all. She was actually rather presumptuous and rude to Danny. That would NOT be a good start, if she was supposed to stick around. I read about the revolving group of partners to come, too. Good. Don't bring this one back.

I am beyond pissed right now!!!! The morons at CBC have once again railroaded a wonderful character from an amazing tv show, its the Criminal Minds fiasco all over again.
Your review was on target. I was really disappointed about the truncated voodoo story line. Danny also seemed skeptical about the quick cure ritual. I don't like Jamie the would be police officer who behaves like a social worker. However the story line was very good, realistic and heart breaking. It was upsetting to see Ken Howard, a famous,good and formerly handsome actor looking so old and destroyed. I am no longer looking into any mirrors.
It was clear that the blonde will not be permanent... I take the side of CBS concerning JE... Unlike you or me who get paid when we can't work by vacation, sick days, or disability, actors do not... Actors are independent contractors who get to deduct from their income the cost of their agents etc... Thus if contractors can't work, they don't get paid... like in any other business.. Difference is we get to know the character the actor plays who is a union employee.. the character left the show under the same reasons the actor did... only the character will get paid....
NO chance i'm wasting time on Friday night ...watching any commercial network crapola....last night was College hoops opening night ...and HUNTED on Cinemax....
If i watch that family at the dinner table ..one more time ..i'd throw up!!
The only thing that annoys me more than writers screwing with the characters in a good show is the brass unleashing their egos and displaying their diminished capacity. Did the "big dogs" interpret JE's celiac disease as some kind of affront to their sublime authority? Are they really that stupid or is it a typical case of too much ego and not enough brains?? Keep dicking with the show, fools, and watch it go byebye.
I thought the chemistry between Danny and his old partner was fantastic and she brought a lot of interest to her supporting role. I felt no chemistry and no dimension in the potential new partner. It was a huge mistake to let the initial actress go and I hope it does not set the tone for future mistakes. Blue bloods is one of my favorite shows and I would hate to see it slide.
Not one of their better episodes.
As a mom who has raised a son wih celiac disease, I can tell you that it can be a debilitating condtion that interferes with every aspect of one's life. Shame on CBS for the treatment of Jennifer Esposito. I would seem that some accommodation could have been made for her.
Nice review! I agree! My understanding is that there is going to be a trial on new partners for Danny to get one with a good fit. Jennifer Esposito grows on you. It's a shame the way things happened over her illness and the claim by the show that she was grandstanding. The show itself took a hit.
i don't believe that the partner that was with danny will be a regular....from what i read, it will be a string of people....which isn't right....as for JE: the network and show powers that be, DIDN'T even TRY to work with her and her doctor.....as for going OLD SCHOOL: i didn't see anything wrong with that.....i probably would have done the same thing.....this seems to be the first time, anything like this has happened to that guy....and frank TRUSTS him greatly...and didn't want to lose him.
One of the best shows on TV, people who do not watch are really missing a good one. The family parts are always so moving. So true to life.
Love everyone on it, but will miss Jennifer.
Always Tom Selleck one of my favorits.
Love the show but they need to bring Jennifer Esposito back. The new partner Kate has zero chemistry w/ Danny. She is not a good fit at all :(
Done with this show. Love TS and usually all he does but this one not so much.
Such a shame that Esposito was treated so harshly by CBS. I understand the need for her to be on set when they need her and not when her illness dictates. Still, the way she was treated wasn't right.
I like the new girl, but foresee a few possible problems. She looks an awful lot like Linda doesn't she? And already there's a kind of love/hate thing going on between them.
I like Danny; but I really wish they would spread around the focus of episodes. I was always expecting to start to see more of Jamie. They have started a lot of story lines with him that they have never really fleshed out. So I guess I hope that instead of introducing this new partner and having episodes focused on her background that we get story lines about Erin's ex coming back in the picture, or something from Henry's cop past, or maybe Jamie finally gets a girlfriend or something.
I got a phone call and missed the final few minutes of the show, could tell Jackie was leaving - what was the story line?
Thank you for reviewing.
I too want to hear more about Erin and Halloween, that definitely left us hanging. LOL!
Sorry to Jennifer Esposito go, is Kate Lansing going to be a regular partner? Please, please, don't let Danny go the route of an affair. They won't do that will they?
Not sure how I felt about Frank going "old school". Part of me was very happy that he got Henry to sort it out and part of me wondered if Frank would do that he is so moral.
Anyway, I do enjoy this show and thank you again for reviewing.
