Shades of Blue season 3: Watch the opening scene now

Shades of BlueWe know that you may have to wait until Sunday night until the Shades of Blue season 3 premiere airs on NBC, but you don’t have to wait to watch the opening scene!

If you look below, you can see the first couple of minutes from the premiere featuring Jennifer Lopez front and center. In this preview, Harlee is testifying about some of her actions following the near-death experience that she had at the end of the season 2 finale. Format-wise, it’s possible that we’re starting the season off with a time jump, only to them touch on some things that we’ve missed along the way. Or, it’s possible that the show will just move forward in a linear fashion.

At the end of the day, Harlee is present in order to expose obstruction, racketeering, and murder within the NYPD — suffice it to say, this is going to be a pretty fantastic start to the season. Many of the themes that we’ve seen expressed on this show over time are about to come home to roost, and we imagine that it’s going to happen in a way that is fairly dramatic. We’ve always wondered how some of these characters were going to be able to reconcile precisely everything that they’ve done since the start of the series and now, it seems like we’re going to get an opportunity to learn just that.

In watching this scene, it certainly feels like the writers had a plan from the start that this could be setting up the end of the show — sometimes, it’s better to know your endgame so that you can plan for it, and deliver what is in turn an exciting conclusion to a story that’s been going on a rather long time.
