Blue Bloods season 8 episode 2 spoilers: The next Danny Reagan story
Moving into Blue Bloods season 8 episode 2 airing on CBS Friday night, what will the Danny Reagan story be? It’s taken a while to get some more official details from the folks over at the network, but those are finally starting to trickle in right now.
We knew that the show probably wouldn’t spend a substantial amount of time in “Ghosts from the Past” dealing extensively with Linda’s death, given that this is not the sort of show this is. It’s actually somewhat ironic that this is the title for the episode given that more often than not the past is barely ever referenced in this show at all. You hear about Joe Reagan and occasionally Mary (we’d hope to hear more about Linda than this), but this is ultimately the extent of it. What the producers really should be doing the rest of the way this season is incorporate little elements of Amy Carlson’s character and what she meant to Danny into all of his stories — it’s too early to tell if that’s going to happen or it’s just a pipe dream, but it’s absolutely something that we do have on our radar at the moment.
Want a little more news regarding what is coming on the show? Then just take a look at some of those aforementioned details below:
“Frank receives an order from the mayor to attend a parade honoring a man who served time for conspiring in an attack against the police. Meanwhile, Danny investigates the return of a teen who suspiciously disappeared 13 years ago; and Jamie and Eddie help a young woman they believe is being exploited by a congressman.”
The last part about the congressman is the part we’ve seen previews for already, but learning about the disappearance of the teen is something new — and that is probably the part of the story that evokes the title. We’re not entirely sure if a case featuring someone coming back from the dead is something Danny needs right now given that he was just ready to retire, but that’s the thing about being a detective: There’s really not a whole lot you can do about the cases you’re given. Sometimes you just have to roll with what you have and deal with it. We hope that Danny remains okay in the midst of everything he is dealing with; we’ve said this before, but we definitely do think that he’s aided by the fact that he will have the love and support of his family, who understand what he’s been through and have felt grief of their own before. He’s not alone in this struggle.
