Probably the biggest surprise that we have right now about next week’s new episode of “Blue Bloods” is actually rather simple: For some reason, CBS is not really making a whole lot of an effort to highlight that this is the 100th episode of the show. When you consider what an achievement this is, shouldn’t you want to go out and scream this from the rooftops?
With that being said, there are quite a few things to look forward to with an hour simply entitled “Baggage,” starting with how it seems to be really focusing on what this show does best: Challenging its characters with difficult stories. This is going to be a big episode for Danny in particular, as he has to weigh the amount of respect that he has for veterans with the amount of respect he has for the letter of the law. Sometimes you have to hold firm to that, even when you would rather follow your heart.
A recent sneak peek released by CBS of this episode showed that there were members of the military responsible for a bank robbery, and despite Danny’s belief that they may have had a purpose for the act, that doesn’t change its criminality. The synopsis below elaborates further:
“Danny is conflicted when he learns that a group of highly trained Army veterans are responsible for a robbery. Meanwhile, after a bomb scare in a subway turns out to be the work of a famous street artist, Garrett and Gormley argue about how to deal with the fallout.”
What is Frank’s story going to be in all of this? That is something still a mystery, but we feel that the rest of the episode is enough to make it worthy of viewing.
