For much of our time here at CarterMatt, we have placed a real emphasis in some of our articles about the CBS show on the relationship between one Jamie and Eddie, which is one that to this day we are going to continue to fight for. However, at the same time we do think that there is room for some other romance to pop in on this show, and Tom Selleck’s Frank could be an interesting focal point for it.
Anyone who has followed the career of the actor definitely knows already that he has a real knack for playing these sort of rugged, charming characters. With that in mind, it’s fairly easy to envision some scenarios in which he ends up being paired off with someone down the road. It has been some time since he lost his wife, and we’ve seen him at least dab in romance here or there on the show.
There is also a symbolic reason to give the Frank character a love interest before the series is over, and that is doing something that few other shows do: Show that love is possible at any age, and that even though Frank has gone through tragedy, there can still be a way for him to find some sort of new happiness. It doesn’t take away from anything with Mary; instead, it is a new chapter, and one that could be filled with light and interesting material for Selleck to play.
