Blue Bloods “Lonely Hearts Club”

12 Nov

Tonight on Blue Bloods, Frank (Tom Selleck) has union negotiation issues, Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) has a sting operation, Erin (Bridget Moynahan) has a date and Henry (Len Cariou) has a new job offer .

“Lonely Hearts Club” was a mediocre episode from an other wise strong show. With 22 episodes to produce every year you are going to get some that are less spectacular then others.

Jackie (Jennifer Esposito)  goes undercover as a prostitute to catch a serial killer. Really show, a prostitute, deduct points for lack of originality. Danny gets upset, he doesn’t want to lose another partner, and feared for her safety. I don’t remember them ever mentioning Danny losing other partners, I hope they go back to this, its an important piece to his back story.

Frank meets with the head of the UPA, they are negotiating a new contract, the head of the UPA tells him the only thing on the table is a wage freeze for one year. Frank dismisses him, basically saying are you high, and get of my office.  There is some discussion of outsourcing some of the units, one of the companies mentioned is Ajax.

Ajax is offering Henry a job, he turns them down, because he realizes they want him as leverage in their deal with the city. Henry sees the handwriting on the wall and his loyalty is clear.  In the end Frank one ups the guy from the UPA and wins.

Erin is dragging Nicky to the opera and art exhibits in an attempt to show her there is more to life then being a cop. While at a gallery, they meet Jacob, the awesome Frederick Wellar, who plays Marshal on In Plain Sight on USA. He takes a liking to Erin and they go out on a date. I hope this means he will be back.

Back to Jackie and the serial killer, an elaborate sting operation has been set up. Cameras, two way communication, all to protect Jackie and to catch a killer. What the heck was Danny worried about, and if Danny was so worried why did he leave Jackie alone to go to the car after they shut down the op when the last guy was over an hour late.  There is still a serial killer out there, how did they know he wouldn’t show up. Of course this slip gave the killer a chance to drug Jackie and shoot at her, he misses, thank God Danny can’t lose another partner. 

Danny gets back to the room in the nick of time and saves Jackie.  It turns out the killer is actually the mother and brother of the prostitute killed in the opening of the episode, creepy.

That’s what happened last night on Blue Bloods.

Next week, they are going to rip your heart out, Henry has a heart attack on Thanksgiving. I teared up watching the preview, check it out below, see if it doesn’t make you a little misty.
