Blue Bloods Season 13 Episode 1 Review

The world is changing rapidly, and everyone is feeling pressure.

Blue Bloods Season 13 review: gave us a police perspective on the modern world’s growing cynicism and high crime rate. This series is nothing new, but this time it was different.

Frank takes his friend, the Archbishop, on a walking tour of the city to gain a civic perspective, but he learns that everyone—including himself—has little faith in humans to do the right thing.

Where Frank goes from here is hard to say. His walking tour shows good loyalty to Teddy Roosevelt, but now that he realizes the world is scarier and more cynical than ever, how can he make things better for his cops and the citizens they protect?

The precinct sergeant sums things up when he explains that regardless of biker gangs, police don’t want to shoot civilians or shoot at themselves.

On the one hand, it is essential that the police do not use their weapons as their first line of defense. On the other hand, these cops fear a biker gang terrorizing them in their own precinct.

Frank should try to think of solutions with his team. A poor example is the fear of the police not enforcing the law, especially outside their own home.

This situation is similar to the situation in which Jamie was shot: bail reform.

In fact, studies show that re-arrests and reoffending rates are no higher than before under the new bail laws, but violent criminals in Blue Bloods Season 13 are constantly being released, only to commit further and worse crimes.

Jamie’s frustration is understandable. The perp breaks free on a ridiculous technique, only to nearly shoot Eddie. Later, the same perp kills his own wife and shoots Jamie.

Erin’s insistence that she can’t do anything because it’s not hers isn’t cutting it. Maybe she couldn’t do much, but she got out because she didn’t care about the destruction the perp was wreaking.

I liked Jamie, who declared that he was tired of being quiet about important things. I was right with him on that journey and I hope he continues to stand up for what he believes in despite this incident.

Jamie’s shooting is one of the most dramatic subplots the series has had in a while. But I know Will Estes isn’t leaving the series. Still, everyone’s fear for Jamie was raw and realistic, and Eddie’s display of panic was so compelling that I didn’t care that it used the stupid trope of a man running into an operating room to make a patient cry.

Eddie’s reasons for wanting Jamie to stay 2-9 are strong, but he’s right: they can’t work together for the rest of their careers.

There was always a captain or commander insisting they change it, and working together made it difficult for Jamie to earn the respect of the police under his command.

He had to repeatedly prove that he had not given his wife favorable treatment, and the couple had problems with Eddie feeling micromanaged or Jamie questioning his professional judgment.

For all these reasons, time is running out for one of them to advance from 2-9.

Eddie is still Jamie’s emergency contact and is quickly notified if anything happens. She wasn’t with him when he was shot this time, so that argument doesn’t hold water.

This may be a difficult adjustment for her, but it will be good for their career and marriage.

Baez also felt that the world was dangerous; She was already worried about giving her baby independence when the child was a teenager or older. I’m curious if this will be a theme throughout the blue bloods season 13. This first episode certainly sets the tone for the police dealing with change in an uncertain world! Interestingly, the bell case connected everyone; This is different than the four or five separate stories we usually get.

Anthony often works with Danny to find a witness or suspect, usually with comedic effect. The boys didn’t have time to tease each other, which seemed strange.

It’s a weird coincidence that Jamie’s the one who gets arrested, and the DA’s office is brought back to the streets, with Danny as the prime suspect in the case, but it works.

What’s going on with Erin and Jack?

He was pushing hard for that lunch, so he wanted one-on-one time with Erin. He had made it clear several times that he was willing to reconcile with her; Why was she surprised that he didn’t want to distance himself from her when she was running for governor?

The media may be preoccupied with the personal lives of the candidates, but the bigger problem is that Jack has a reputation as a lousy lawyer.

Gossip about his and Erin’s reconciliation doesn’t make much of an impression. But if Erin’s opponent suggests that corruption will be rewarded because of the company she keeps, it could sink her campaign.

I was excited about another Joe Hill performance and this one was particularly moving.

Joe wasn’t part of the family when his father died, so he didn’t know firsthand the grief and pain they were all carrying. That made his upset over Jamie’s shooting and his conversation with Danny about Joe Sr.’s death all the more poignant.

Danny, in particular, is a soldier who has dealt with the deaths of his brother and his wife in recent years.
