    Friends in High Places

    Do firefighters and cops really hate each other?

    Judging by TV, they do. Every cop show deals with bitter rivalry with the fire department at some point.

    On Blue Bloods Season 10 Episode 8, it was Frank's turn. He handled it with class and honor, but sheesh.

    Frank is a busy man who surely had better things to do than deal with that ridiculous rivalry.

    From the incident report he discussed with Garrett and Gormley, neither the cops nor the firefighters acted like adults.

    The cops rushed in a while handling what seemed to be a spurious noise complaint, and the firefighters fought back.

    Frank: If you stop anyone on the street and ask them who the NYPD and FDNY commissioners are, what would they say?
    Abigail: Frank Reagan and... I don't know.
    Frank: Exactly. If I were the Commissioner of I Don't Know, I'd have a chip on my shoulder too.

    When Frank and Jamie butt heads, it's usually because they're too damn similar.

    Blue Bloods Season 10 Episode 7 was no exception.

    Jamie started on the same side as his father, but that was almost forgotten in their disagreement about how he handled a water-throwing citizen.

    Frank and Jamie's conflict was one of those things where both points of view were valid. 

    That's good writing. In a case like this, it would be easy to slant the story to support one side or the other.

    The writers, as they often do, went the more difficult route of presenting both points of view so that viewers can make up their own minds.

    Anyone who throws water on police officers, who throw objects at police officers, who impede police officers while they are doing the job are breaking the law. Anyone caught doing this will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I want to be crystal clear about this. I will neve...

    Finally!

    Jamie and Eddie's marriage has fallen by the wayside, but Blue Bloods Season 10 Episode 6 fixed that.

    They worked together to get to the bottom of who posted nude photos of Caitlin O'Brien, and it was just like old times.

    Jamie and Eddie's case was easily the most interesting storyline of the hour.

    As soon as Caitlin's father showed up all freaked out about nude photos of his daughter online, I knew there had to be more to the story.

    I was sure Mr. O'Brien had violated his daughter's privacy somehow, but I didn't expect her to have posted revenge porn herself to try to frame her ex-boyfriend.

    Anyway, tying it into Eddie's history was a nice bonus.

    I was glad that Eddie put aside her initial irritation with Jamie's request and talked to Caitlin.

    The times, they are a-changin'.

    Frank has never been happy about that, especially when he feels the political climate makes it impossible for cops to do their jobs.

    On Blue Bloods Season 10 Episode 5, he felt guilty about reporting a detective's potential misconduct to IAB, but was he right to feel bad about it?

    Frank compared his decision to Jamie's decision to investigate Espinoza privately.

    But the two weren't directly comparable.

    Frank's job requires him to wear so many hats that sometimes it's impossible for him to fulfill all the requirements at once.

    Frank Reagan's moral code is usually pretty simple.

    Live with integrity and follow the law. If the law is wrong, change the law -- don't break it.

    But on Blue Bloods Season 10 Episode 4, Frank toyed with making an exception for a friend who assisted in the death of his terminally ill wife.

    In the end, Frank only delayed the court process to let an old man say goodbye to his late wife. He didn't ignore it. 

    But for a while, it seemed like he might not be 100% wedded to the concept of accepting the law as written no matter how cruel it seemed.

    Frank: Wilson Ortega dedicated years of service as a Special Agent of the FBI. He deserves to come to my office at a time of his choosing.
    Garett: So we're not going by the book?
    Frank: We are. But it's a different book.

    Blue Bloods' emphasis on family often sets it apart from other police dramas.

    Viewers tune in to see the Reagans grapple with tough issues, argue with each other, and manage to come together over Sunday dinner.

    But Blue Bloods Season 10 Episode 3 shifted, instead focusing on other families' troubles while the Reagans all got along for once.

    Some of the other stories were interesting, but something was missing: the conflict between members of the Reagan family.

    Jamie's problem with Erin after the guy her office sent to a diversion program shot at him and his rookie lasted all of 30 seconds, Danny's case was entirely self-contained, and Frank was busy trying to put someone else's family back together instead of worrying about his own.

    It's inevitable that Frank and Erin will continue to butt heads over their respective jobs.

    Frank sees the DA's office as an adversary, if not an outright enemy, of the police.

    And with so many Reagans in the police department, any perceived attack on the police department will seem personal to him.

    On Blue Bloods Season 10 Episode 2, Frank and Erin clashed when Frank learned that the DA's office had a list of cops who it would not allow to testify.

    Frank went to war, determined to get rid of the blacklist -- and he was right to do so.

    Garrett didn't understand why Frank was choosing this hill to die on. By refusing to cooperate with the DA's office, Frank could put dangerous criminals back on the streets.

    The Real Deal

    One thing's for sure: there's never a dull moment in the Reagan family.

    On Blue Bloods Season 10 Episode 1, Frank and Henry staged an argument at the family dinner, but it wasn't too far off from the real thing.

    And between Frank, Erin, Danny, and Jamie, there were more than enough dramatic decisions to go around!

    Let's start with the obvious: Danny and Maggie's interest in each other goes beyond working on cases.

    I figured that their relationship would go in this direction sooner or later. It's been two years since Linda's death and Maggie keeps popping up in Danny's life, so where else could this go?

    Finally! After a whole season of rooting for Eddie and Jamie to work through their differences and make it to the altar, the couple tied the knot.

    Blue Bloods Season 9 Episode 22 addressed Eddie's fear of becoming consumed by the large yet close-knit Reagan family after a work conflict with Erin nearly derailed everything.

    The toasts at the rehearsal dinner were lovely and Eddie's trip down the aisle with Frank was emotional. But was it too much to ask to see the ceremony?

    Blue Bloods Season 10 better pick up where this left off! Jamko fans have waited far too long to get only a glimpse of the nuptials.

    After being cheated out of an on-screen proposal on Blue Bloods Season 8 Episode 22, fans might revolt if the rest of the wedding is offscreen.

    Okay, Blue Bloods. What the heck was that?

    Danny and Maria caught an interesting case on Blue Bloods Season 9 Episode 21, but then their suspects killed themselves so that they'd never figure out for sure who did what.

    Identical twins covering for each other is probably a TV trope, but that suicide pact was taking things too far!

    I didn't care which twin was a murderer. As suspects go, these two were bland and unimpressive. Their only claim to fame was as identical twins who were able to cover for each other.

    The more interesting question was how Danny and Maria were going to figure this one out!

    Identical twins share DNA and fingerprints, so forensic evidence wasn't helpful, and the guys were so loyal to each other that it was nearly impossible for the cops to put a wedge between them.
