Blue Bloods S05E19 Recap: Through The Looking Glass

Blue Bloods: Time To Let It Go? Story by David Clark Blue Bloods season five has been a series of one-and-done episodes. With the season finale looming only a short four weeks away, it might be time to throw in the towel for any chance of a season building story arch. That said, season five has not been all bad. This season has seen hostage situations in a police precinct, wild gunfights, dangerous stakeouts, and high speed chases. It has definitely been enough to keep fans of the series coming back.

Blue Bloods S05E17 Recap: Occupational Hazards

To Trust Or Not To Trust Story by David Clark Blue Bloods this week focused on: Tom Selleck (Frank Reagan), Bridget Moynahan (Erin Reagan), Donnie Wahlberg (Det. Danny Reagan), Will Estes (Officer Jamie Reagan), Vanessa Ray (Officer Eddie Jenko), Marisa Ramirez (Det. Maria Baez), and guest starring David Shumbris (John Johanssen) and Phyllis Somerville (Beth). Occupational Hazard was a fitting name for this episode though a name like Momentum might have suited it even better. The episode opens with a slow conversation between Commissioner Frank Reagan and his granddaughter. Once the episode lulls the audience into believing it is another slow episode the explosions, shootouts, and mayhem take center stage. This week’s episode was themed with an ethical quandary. Is it healthier to assume the best of people and risk being disappointed or is it safer to assume the worst from people and leave room for surprise? This was highlighted most emphatically when Commissioner
