Deal Score0
Deal Score0

Frank’s determination to not endorse anybody within the Manhattan DA’s workplace precipitated plenty of drama.

Folks stored exhibiting up in his workplace, a few of them irate on Erin’s behalf, however he refused to budge.

Blue Bloods Season 13 Episode 2 had a cheerful ending to a wholly ridiculous battle.

Frank’s coverage has all the time been to deal with Danny and Jamie the identical manner he would non-related cops, so why ought to anybody be stunned that he did not need to deal with Erin otherwise than every other candidate?

It wasn’t as if he had endorsed her opponent. He declined to make any endorsement within the race in any respect.

Erin hasn’t formally introduced her bid, so it will be ridiculous for him to endorse her. And past that, she is not owed an endorsement by anyone, not even her father.

Garett: Are we going to offer the events concerned a heads up?
Frank: Would we usually give them a heads up?
Garett: No, however this is not regular.
Frank: It must be.
Garett: Wishing will not make it so.
Frank: However actions will.

There have been good causes for Frank to chorus from endorsing anybody on this race.

If he endorsed Erin, the pundits would have a discipline day over it; many may speculate that he solely supported her due to their familial relationship. That could not be good for her marketing campaign!

And if he endorsed another person, it will harm Erin’s emotions and provides that individual an outsized benefit as a result of commentators and voters may assume that the candidate should be extraordinary for Frank to choose them over his daughter.

Regardless of who Frank endorsed, it will harm Erin’s probabilities, so it was higher for him to remain out of it.

Erin thought that Frank’s non-endorsement was a tacit acknowledgment that she deliberate to come back after him arduous as a part of her marketing campaign. 

That self-centered evaluation does not take into account the political ramifications of any endorsement Frank may make, but when it permits Erin to forgive him, it is acceptable.

However what on Earth had gotten into Henry? He was as soon as Police Commissioner and will have understood the explanations behind Frank’s determination.

As a substitute, Henry confirmed up weapons blazing, demanding that Frank endorse Erin as a result of her emotions have been harm.

Frank: I may have been in a gathering.
Henry: To hell together with your assembly.
Frank: That is about Erin, is not it?
Henry: She got here to me in confidence and requested me to not inform you. So that you break my phrase and I break your nostril. And I am the one one who’ll nonetheless do it.

If Erin had an issue with Frank, she ought to have taken it up with him herself earlier than or after Sunday dinner. That is the best way conflicts are resolved within the Reagan household.

What she shouldn’t have carried out is what she did: get her grandfather to struggle her battles for her.

Additionally, Erin is meant to be an grownup. Understandably, she might need harm emotions over Frank not publicly endorsing her. However her emotions should not be his solely consideration, and he or she ought to be capable to cope with her disappointment and transfer ahead along with her marketing campaign anyway.

Danny and Baez had one in every of their more unusual instances.

There was no physique, no proof of a homicide, and no method to determine who was in that room till Dr. Knight got here ahead.

Knight claimed somebody slashed him and had a wound to show it. He wasn’t urgent fees, so there was no crime dedicated. Why did Danny and Baez have to preserve investigating?

It did not appear important for the cops to seek out the escort and ensure his story. Did Danny suppose he harm her after which slashed himself to make it appear to be he was the sufferer?

Danny disliked Knight, however that was no motive to look so intently at this case. He and Baez did anyway and found that Knight’s daughter slashed him as a result of she was offended that he had intercourse along with her good friend.

They hadn’t interacted along with her earlier than her confession; Danny put the case collectively by pressuring the lady the escort labored for. How disappointing!

Jamie’s new job will result in compelling conflicts. His boss’ emphasis on not figuring out who is perhaps compromised makes me suppose that Jamie may be taught data that he feels is mistaken to maintain from Eddie sooner or later.

Eddie herself will not be compromised, however what if she’s assigned a companion who’s or a witness she’s monitoring down is concerned in some covert unhealthy stuff? What’s going to Jamie do then?

I am stunned he did not know what he was moving into till his first assembly along with his new CO. He needed to know that he was engaged on top-secret instances earlier than accepting the job!

Jamie agonized over whether or not or to not stay with the intelligence unit as a result of he was afraid the secrecy would destroy his marriage. He and Eddie ultimately labored that out, however they need to have mentioned it extra totally earlier than Jamie thought of quitting his new job.

Jamie’s dialog with Henry was one of many highlights of the hour.

Jamie: I can not speak to Eddie about my job and I can not even speak to you concerning the issues I can not speak to her about.
Henry: I’ve stored my share of secrets and techniques in my time.
Jamie: How did you deal with it at residence?
Henry: I roamed with the dinosaurs. My spouse would by no means ask me what occurred on the beat.

I really like the particular relationship Jamie has with Henry. Henry’s recommendation was nice; Jamie had to determine what he needed and the way to cope with the secrecy of this job.

Surprisingly, McNichols’ recommendation to Eddie was additionally respectable. Eddie wants to seek out one thing to do aside from consistently hassle her about her determination to not let Jamie and Eddie work collectively.

Sadly, there wasn’t time within the hour for Jamie to work any intelligence instances, however hopefully, that’ll come.
