Blue Bloods season 10 episode 2 review: Vincent Rella ‘helps’ Danny

Blue Bloods season 10

Tonight, Blue Bloods season 10 episode 4 offered up a story about family tension … and also about informants not always being good at their job.

Danny and Baez – The two arrive at the scene of a place where Danny used to hang out when he was younger, only to learn the manager of the place was dead. Who did it? Shortly after making the discovery, the two characters tried to get to the bottom of what was going on … and how much the manager’s daughter actually knew. They brought in former mobster Vincent Rella, thinking that he would be a good source for information or at least advice as she debated whether to speak up. Yet, in the end, Vincent gave some terrible advice!

What this case showed were the problems between points of view. Rella hated his experience in witness protection, and he didn’t want the same to happen to this young woman.

Jamie and Eddie – There is an investigation going on at the moment when it comes to cab/ride-share thefts, and Eddie is trying to resolve this by figuring out a proper decoy operation. She was unhappy when despite her suggestions, Jamie was given the order to take on the mission. He went into the cab looking to take out the target, and he found himself in a position where he had to navigate a cap through some busy streets while also avoiding getting killed by the Taxicab Killer. (That’s what we are calling him, anyway!)

In the end, it was Eddie who ended up helping to save the day! Much like Jamie did for her in the past, she looked out for him and then help in the end.

Frank and Erin – Is there a blacklist-of-sorts featuring various unreliable police officers over at the DA’s office? As it turns out, it does seem that way … and it’s already causing a good bit of tension between her and Frank. Erin thinks that she’s doing what is best for her case, whereas Frank feels as though it’s an unfair practice.

Yet, Erin needed to do whatever she thinks is right to make sure that her job is done. Even if that meant occasionally making Frank upset. She was able to do her job, but then the next order of business came about in trying to repair what was a damaged relationship with her father. Frank ultimately countered a “naughty list” from the DA’s office with one of his own, one that looked at the ADAs who he finds combative or problematic to the NYPD.

In the end, the solution that the two came up with was to rip up both lists and try to move forward — if they can. The problem is that Erin doesn’t have complete authority.

CarterMatt Verdict

This was one of the best Blue Bloods episodes in a while, and also quite possibly one of Bridget Moynahan’s best performances in a while. We almost wish her closing scene with Frank was a little bit longer!
