So what do we take away from this title more so than anything else? It’s that this is a show that is going to embracing the challenges of the world head-on.
The past few months have probably led to the Blue Bloods writers’ room recognizing that they have a real responsibility to try to get the story right that they are putting out there in the world. This is one of the shows that has been scrutinized for its portrayal of police officers, and the state of cops in New York at present has to be a focus. The same goes for the obstacles that face us all in present-day America — think in terms of a global health crisis, one that is making lives difficult for almost every person out there.
Yet, through the word “Triumph” you get the sense that the writers are reminding us of one thing — we can push through what we are enduring. This is a note that the series is looking to take a hopeful tone at some point in this episode; even if they are taking on issues that are not always easy, maybe the episode with a way to show that you can eventually get to the other side. That’s at least the hope, anyway.
