Blue Bloods season 10 episode 4 review: Anthony the hero; Frank’s hard choice

Blue Bloods season 10

Tonight, Blue Bloods season 10 episode 4 brought you an episode that was all about mysteries. One of the mysteries, in fact, was why Jamie and Eddie were so minimized throughout most of the hour.

Jamie was involved, as small of an appearance as it was, through Frank trying to figure out whether or not an old friend was responsible for killing his wife. The problem was that Frank’s point of view may have been clouded by his opinion of the man. Also, the man told him that his wife ended up taking her own life, as she had been sick and suffered for a rather long time.

As it turns out, Frank was aware fully of his friend’s culpability — he may have killed her as an act of mercy, but it was a killing nonetheless. He wanted him to be able to bury his wife, and then face the consequences later on.

For Danny Reagan, tonight you had one of the most complicated mysteries that we’ve seen in a while where a woman claimed that she was assaulted. The man who was accused didn’t act likely the typical person in this position — he also couldn’t piece together his story and seemed apologetic over the whole situation. There were questions as to whether he was a good liar, or even whether the accusation was fake. The truth may have been somewhere in between — or, in this case, the guilt lied with someone else.

In the end, it was the accused’s wife who concocted the whole situation in the first place. They were able to figure out that the accuser and the wife had worked out an arrangement but, eventually, Danny and Baez were able to get the accuser to flip and reveal the true story. The wife wanted to ensure that she got full custody, and getting the husband in this mess was a way to ensure that this happened.

Was this episode also one of the biggest ones of the season for Anthony? We are likely to think so, as he went undercover in order to ensure that he could figure out just what happened with a series of robberies at convenience stores. Anthony managed to be a hero in this episode, and there was something funny about seeing him celebrate at the end of the episode.

CarterMatt Verdict

We’re not going to proclaim this to be the biggest episode of Blue Bloods in show history. There were a few stories that we would’ve loved to get a little bit more insight on. We did see Danny and Baez weave their way through what was a difficult case, while Jamie and Frank came to terms over a case where they each had strong points of view.
