‘Blue Bloods’ season 7, episode 6 preview: What’s coming up in ‘Whistleblowers’
Where are we going moving into next week’s new episode of “Blue Bloods”? We’ve got an installment coming entitled “Whistleblowers,” and on the surface, we do have to admit that this is far from being the flashiest episode that we’ve ever seen.
It may not be the sort of story that yields well to being described in a synopsis, mostly because the stories being focused on here aren’t exactly innovative for the show. Then again, isn’t that sort of a general statement about the show? Part of its strength is that it does know what sort of show that it is, and doesn’t really try to stray from that. It’s one of the many reasons it’s fanbase is as strong as it is – consistency. You know what to expect from this show and they always deliver.
Synopsis – “As Frank contends with a whistleblower within the NYPD who claims to have evidence of abuse of power in the organization, Danny and Baez investigate the case of a woman who was struck by a car under suspicious circumstances.”
To us, the Frank storyline is clearly the most high-stakes one in the episode, given that any shred of evidence of abuse of power could come back on him. Typically, we tend to enjoy Frank stories the most, so any time there’s more Tom Selleck in the spotlight the better.
Promo – This kind of episode is where seeing a preview really is an asset in telling you what you can expect. Through this, we got a little bit more of a sense as to how seriously Danny will take his investigation. Specifically, he’s going to turn aggressive and even threatening at times. This may be the most turned-up we’ve seen him for a case ever since the Thomas Wilder shooting near the end of last season. (Unfortunately, there is no promo available to share as of this writing — we’re just offering up impressions.)

I wish we’d see more of Sgt Renzulli, not to mention Linda Reagan. Both Nick Turturro and Amy Carlson are woefully underused on the show.

I would absolutely love to see more of Linda on the show. She’s such a strong character and I’m always happy to have stories that include her.

And Amy Carlson is a strong actress — I don’t know why we only see her in the Sunday dinner scenes. She seems to get one episode a year that features her, and that’s it.
And Nick Turturro? It’s like they’ve forgotten Sgt. Renzulli even exists.

she is such a strong actress and a strong character. I’ve always loved the episode that give her something to do, like that shooting in the the hospital a few seasons back. they have a really big cast so i think it’s hard to fit everyone in, like Chicago PD.
