Blue Bloods Review: The Mommy Makeover

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Everyone feels like their life needs a makeover from time to time - but most of us don't go under the knife for it.

If only Nicole Garland had actually gone to Aruba in Blue Bloods Season 4 Episode 18 instead of trying to surgically improve herself for her philandering husband. 

When Dr. Garland tried to explain why he lied to the police about spending the night with his mistress, Danny's explanation was straight to the point in this Blue Bloods quote...

Is because encouraging your wife to get plastic surgery while you're running around banging some younger broad would make you look like more of an ass than you already are.

Danny

Never underestimate Danny's talent for the direct approach. I also found it amusing that Danny was the one to notice the manicure on the video and remember that the nurse had the same design on her nails. 

Erin disappointed me for much of the first half of the episode. I know that speed dating was Linda's idea and that it wasn't going well, but McCoy was right to call her out on her behavior. Taking phone calls on a date is rude under ordinary circumstances but having only five minutes to speak with someone makes it even worse.

Then she practically snarled at the guy when he showed up in her office concerning a case. The only time she was remotely nice to the man was when she realized how he'd gone out of his way for his client. He must have it bad for Erin because she certainly never gave him much of a hint that she was interested in dating.

Frank assigned Jamie to the off the books cold case of Michelle Lowe. He admitted that the case wasn't his smartest move but he'd made a promise to Michelle's mother. Putting Jamie in charge solved two issues. First, he needed someone he trusted could do the job while keeping things quiet. Second, Frank knew that Jamie needed a challenge.

I immediately knew that the killer was the creepy neighbor when he mentioned that the victim was "powerless over alcohol." That line was a giant red flag and thankfully one that Jamie never forgot. 

Eddie's reaction to being left out in the cold was interesting. Part of it was being stuck writing traffic summons but mostly I think she hated feeling as though Jamie didn't trust her.,

Yet again, the Reagan family dinner was some of the most entertaining two minutes on TV. I couldn't help but laugh as Henry said he didn't see the appeal in big boobs and puffy lips and Jack shot back that he did. Even better was that no one at the table chastised him for an honest opinion. 

Time to share, TV Fanatics. Would you ever have plastic surgery to improve your looks?

Another great episode!
It was made even better because Jamie got more screen time and he looked hot in that suit!
I loved that Frank wanted him on the case. Jamie will make a great detective one day if he gets the chance and wants to take it. I found it interesting that Frank blames himself for Jamie not being promoted already. I am assuming Danny made detective before Frank became commissioner.
I like Erin's new love interest.
The conversation at the dinner table was funny! Jamie's questions were serious though and I like that Erin new that the reason Frank did not tell her who was working on the secret investigation was because it was Jamie. No one else at the table had any clue.

I am still waiting for a flashback episode about the other son who was killed.. Mentioned again this episode.. I guess they'd have a lot of work to do to make everyone younger... Glad Jamie's partner is married though she is pretty cute..

I enjoyed the episode a lot. It was nice to see them all in there, and even an extra scene with Linda. I think it's hard to keep them all onscreen sometimes. I really felt as if they were a family this week. Jack was funny at dinner.

Your poll needs to be revisited. There are only two positive choices, and no negative choice.

I 100% agree with you about the Frank thing. His character needs fleshed out a little more. Give him a woman so we can see more of his personal life and get to see him in love for a change.

I liked this episode. Danny case was good I knew it was doctor that's why I think it shows when people go do homework before you go out and do that. Erin was rude to McCoy at first with the phone call and not letting him talk on the speed dating then when should up she wouldn't listen to what he had to say she judge before understanding then once she did she did come though for McCoy client I hope she dates this guy he seems nice. Jamie am glad we saw more of him and how Frank trusted him but I didn't like how Eddie got mad at him because he couldn't tell her I know he could have trusted her but Jamie and Frank couldn't tell there family members about the case so. I liked how Jamie solved the case and got that guy to come clean by using the song by outkast hey ya that the robber told Jamie about. Jamie and Frank end scene was good

Linda: I live in a man cave you know.
Erin: I could use a little more of that. The man, not the cave.
