Moving into Blue Bloods season 8 episode 7 next week, one of the things you are going to see is the evolution of Danny Reagan. This is a man who doesn’t investigate the same way after the death of his wife Linda. He can’t. He’s more sensitive in some ways and more hardened in others. It’s also now easier for him to be emotionally impacted by various cases.
With that, we bring you to the story of “Common Ground” airing on CBS in one week’s time. The synopsis CarterMatt has for you below gives you a little more of a sense as to precisely why this case matters so much more to Danny than any other one out there:
“Common Ground” – A case turns personal for Danny when he works to protect a nurse, Faith Madson (Jessie Mueller), from her violent ex-boyfriend. Also, Shelly Wayne (Cassandra Freeman), an acquaintance of Frank’s, comes to him with a theory regarding the death of an inmate, and Jamie and Eddie help deliver a baby, on BLUE BLOODS, Friday, Nov. 10 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
It’s easy to figure out just why Danny would be so personally impacted by this case: It’s a nurse, just like his wife Linda was a nurse. He’s going to do everything that he can in order to help her. Maybe psychologically, a part of this for him is trying to reconcile his guilt over not being able to help Linda. He shouldn’t feel guilty about that — it was an accident, and not one that he had any control over. Still, it’s Danny’s way to carry the weight of the world on his shoulders and trying to resolve that for him could take some time.
As for some of the other notable parts of this episode, we imagine that there is going to be some super-interesting stuff coming up when we see what happens with Jamie and Eddie delivering a baby. We know that for them dating is the next box they have to check off right now, but delivering a baby together might spark up some conversations. Maybe this makes them think about one milestone they could have together if they decide to have a romantic relationship down the road.
