Blue Bloods season 8 finale: Could there be a cliffhanger?
When it comes to the upcoming Blue Bloods season 8 finale on CBS Friday night, it only makes some sense to be a little worried about a cliffhanger. After all, the long-running show has done that before and when you consider the state of some of the stories coming up, there are some reasons to be nervous.
We’d say that, potentially more so than anywhere else, with the relationship between Jamie and Eddie. Out of all of the characters in the cast, they are the two that have been hyped up the most in terms of being in danger. Ending the finale in a way that puts their lives on the line feels like the sort of thing that could cause a panic moving into the ninth season of the show, as well stir up some discussion as to whether or not Will Estes or Vanessa Ray could be returning to the show.
If Blue Bloods doesn’t give you a Jamie – Eddie cliffhanger in terms of their survival, they could offer one in another way if they choose to pay off the Sergeant’s exam in a way that has Eddie getting a promotion. Then, there could be a cliffhanger that is designed all around that.
There are some other possible cliffhangers that could be out there for other characters — namely, it’s possible that Danny and Baez could be facing a case that isn’t wrapped up until the premiere. Here’s what the synopsis has to say about their story: “When a series of drive-by murders occur after six wrongly convicted men are released from prison, Danny and Baez wonder if they were orchestrated by the men as an act of revenge.” Isn’t it possible that this ends up being a story that carries over to the premiere? It definitely feels like it’s meaty enough to have it still be going on for a little while.
In the end, Blue Bloods really isn’t a show that needs a cliffhanger and it certainly doesn’t always utilize them. Nonetheless, it is still something to think about over the next few days.
