If you are one of those people upset by the lack of big Vanessa Ray storylines, Blue Bloods season 8 episode 8 should be right up your alley. While Jamie and Eddie together have had a couple of big stories this season, there haven’t been too many that are Eddie-specific.
“Pick Your Poison,” (which is the going to air on Friday, November 17 on CBS) is going to be the installment that helps to buck this trend. For some more news about it and the case at hand, just be sure to check out the synopsis CarterMatt has for you below:
“Pick Your Poison” – Eddie’s judgment is clouded by her past when she arrests a loathed acquaintance from college on questionable charges. Also, Frank is hesitant to mar the spotless record of a member of the force, a decorated U.S. military veteran, who tested positive for marijuana, on BLUE BLOODS, Friday, Nov. 17 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
We’ve certainly seen stories like this before, where someone accuses someone of terrible things because of how they treated people in their past. Something very similar was on NCIS earlier this season with Bishop. There is a part of us that wants Eddie to be right in this situation just because there’s something to be said for intuition and as much as we want to believe that people change, we had a hard time buying into the story on NCIS since it was wrapped up a little too neatly. Plus, Eddie doesn’t always get enough credit as a cop sometimes.
As for the Frank storyline…
This is going to be controversial much in the way that many Frank storylines are. Marijuana use in this country is something that is still somewhat in the ether; the rules vary state by state, and we’d argue that the rules very even more depending on your job. Every person out there has a different opinion as to how it’s used and whether or not it should be used. We’re not going to get into our own perspective on the matter here, but this is going to be another difficult tightrope for Frank to walk.
What we do foresee with Tom Selleck’s character is him having to figure out what this character was using the marijuana to do. For example, was it used as a form of medical treatment or was it for recreational use? Also, to what degree was he using it? Was it to the point where he was driving under the influence of it? Frank’s learned over the years that there are shades of gray within his job and in this instance probably more than we imagine. He will look at all of the variables before making up his mind as to what to do here.
