It’s been snowing on and off all week here, and now we have a forecast of rain and warmer temperatures for the weekend because obviously Mother Nature is having a mental breakdown. (If you don’t believe me about nature’s mental breakdown, please Google “Buffalo, NY”…) While I stay dry, warm, and comfortable inside my cozy house tonight, let’s see what we all should be watching.
Blue Bloods is always high on drama, both crime-wise and family as well, which was definitely evident last episode when Frank found out that Erin had been seeing the Interim District Attorney, Rob McCoy. This would seem harmless to some, except Rob caught Frank off guard when both of them were brought in to do an interview about the safety of the city and Rob said he disagreed with Frank’s policy. He announced that he only wanted to try cases that seemed feasible and he wasn’t going to go after people brought in on small drug charges, going as far as to refuse to prosecute them. Later Erin went after Rob because he failed to discuss the new policy with the ADAs and that he ambushed the Commissioner on TV because now he had not only pissed her and her dad off, but the entire department. We also got to learn more about the new Lt. Carver at Danny’s precinct after she insisted on riding along as Danny’s partner for the day. The pair were investigating what appeared to be a drive-by, where a mother of a 10-month-old baby was hit and died. Later, they realized that it wasn’t a drive-by but a hit that had been put out on the mother and child after a gang boss found out that the baby his girlfriend had wasn’t his. The real baby’s father ended up killing himself because he didn’t think he could raise his child and knew there would be a target on her back as long as he was around. When Danny asked the nurse about the baby and what would happen to her, he learned that the lieutenant had actually put in to adopt her and that was the ticket that Danny needed to change his mind about switching precincts.
I actually like Lt. Carver and think that her tough, no-nonsense ways are refreshing, as well as much needed for that group. What I do need is more Jamie and Eddie, along with Jamie getting to be a detective soon because he’s been on the job for 4 years now—it’s time to move up! Overall, I am never tired of this show and look forward to more growth every week.
On tonight’s episode, “Power of the Press,” Frank faces public backlash after an officer’s body camera malfunctions during an altercation with a civilian. Meanwhile, Danny and Baez struggle to protect an informant after the U.S. Marshall’s Service decides not to put him in Witness Protection, and Erin investigates an old friend’s daughter’s claim of rape at a prestigious university.
To see if Erin can get to the bottom of it and if Frank can dig himself out of this one, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching Grimm, Constantine, Hawaii Five-0, The Amazing Race, Diners, Drive Ins & Dives, and Z Nation.
