Blue Bloods Review: Jamie Comes Clean

at . Comments

Finally.  I've been waiting all season for Jamie to confide in his family about the Blue Templar. I always thought he'd go to his Dad with it so when he brought the information to Danny instead I was both happy and surprised.

"Cellar Boy" started off with the murder of the Reagan's family friends. The Clearys sounded like the unhappy family on the block that everyone else gossiped about.

The Dad was a pillar of the community but a bastard at home, calling Ronnie, his mentally ill son "Cellar Boy" while Mom looked the other way. Talk about dysfunctional.

At least Ronnie could blame his bipolar disorder and his drug use for his issues.

But Al and Anne, the supposedly sane siblings, stabbed Mom and Dad to death and then set up their brother to take the fall. All because their parents were spending too much of what the kids deemed to be their inheritance. That's seriously cold.

Frank and the Mayor continued to dance around one another as each vied for their own piece of control. Frank wasn't about to let his department get cut and put his city at risk.

The Mayor certainly didn't believe that Frank had nothing to do with that article in the paper. For the moment they're at a standoff but eventually something has to give. 

Detective Malevsky was back and issuing veiled threats against Jamie. Did anyone else feel the need to take a shower after his brief but effective scene? I'm still amazed how well Michael T. Weiss plays sleazy.

When Jamie's gun went missing from his police locker, Internal Affairs put him on notice, and then his brakes went out on his car, he finally determined that he may be in over his head. For such a smart guy it certainly took him long enough to come to that conclusion.

I have to point out that in reality Jamie's car never would have gotten up to those speeds on New York city streets. Plus the impact of hitting that divider should have left him hurting far worse than he was, but this is TV so perhaps I have to give those details a pass.

Thank God Jamie finally decided to let somebody in on what was going on before he ended up being the next dead body vaguely connected to the Blue Templar investigation. I don't know how the Reagan family could survive losing another son.

I'd love to know what Joe found out and what Gonzalves knew that got her killed almost two years later.  What the heck was going on in the Warrant Squad?

This season has built up so many questions. With the finale a week away, I can only hope Blue Bloods finally gives us some answers.
