‘Shiptober: Will Blue Bloods season 8 bring Jamie – Eddie (Jamko) together?

Blue Bloods season 8

As of right now the Jamko pairing is at least one of the most popular on CBS Friday nights, and for good reason. After all, few have been in will-they-or-won’t-they territory quite as long as the two of them have. It should be apparent to virtually everyone at the moment that they have deep feelings for each other, but there are still some issues that are keeping the two parties separate from one another. What’s one of the biggest ones? It’s really so simple as their own fear! They don’t want to run the risk of doing anything that jeopardizes their careers on the force or their partnership, and as a result of that they continue to hold back.

Yet, we do think that we’re at a point now where something could and should happen. They’re both established enough that there should be no reason for the NYPD to come down on them hard for the relationship, and they’ve both also explored many other avenues. What we like about these two in a relationship at this point is that it feels almost as though they’ve already done everything in their power to not be together and the feelings are still there. When you have a romance that effectively feels so unavoidable is it really wrong to shy away from it? Shouldn’t this be something that is 1000% embraced by the two of them at this point?

The first thing that the two need to do is just admit already that they’re ready to be together and stop messing around with the idea. From there, they can decide on a way to inform the higher-ups and determine the parameters of their relationship on the job and at home. They need to keep the lines of communication open and ensure that they understand where the other person is coming from at all times. Take things slow, and don’t pressure Eddie to be at the Reagan family dinner table too soon (though we would like to see it).

Beyond all of this, one of the simplest things that we want to see is simply more of Will Estes and Vanessa Ray on the show itself! Blue Bloods hasn’t used either one of them nearly as much as of late as we would like and hopefully that will change in the near future. Luckily it is a long season, and with that we presume that there will be more opportunities to bring them back.
