Mrs. Carter: Is the time of waiting Jamie / Eddie on Blue Bloods season 7 almost at an end?
While we do understand that the CBS police drama is a procedural and it likes to move some stories along at a crawl, we are starting to get a sense that the relationship between these two characters could be heating up by season’s end. After all, we had a Jamie / Eddie kiss earlier this season, they’ve discussed their feelings at length, and they’ve also tried the thing where they’ve seen other people and went on double dates with said other people.
The show is, effectively, doing almost everything that they can to feature the two characters with romantic undertones, other than of course the thing that everyone wants: Seeing the two of them actually get together. If we were to guess, there’s likely to be some movement on this front by the season 7 finale. You want to have a way to entice fans of Jamie / Eddie to watch the final episode of the season, and what better way to do that than teasing another moment like they one that you see above?
Giving the two a chance to get together would easily bring some benefits to Blue Bloods, starting with the fact that it opens up all sorts of story possibilities if they are a public couple. What does it do for their partnership? Does it impact how they fare out in the field? Could we get a wedding by the end of the series? This is a show that loves to focus on a wide array of relationships, and two cops dating each other is not one that’s really been explored at length.
Ideally, we’d love to see the two get together in some sort of way around episode 20 or 21 of the season; then, you close out the finale by having a Jamie / Eddie scene where she is at the Reagan family dinner table. Maybe that’s a little soon for her — these scenes are sacred and it’s a big step for the relationship to be eating with the entire family — but it’s certainly something that needs to happen if the two are endgame. Getting them together is just the right move for the two as characters, and also is the perfect teaser in the event that we get a Blue Bloods season 8 for the fall.
