Is Vanessa Ray leaving Blue Bloods? Is Eddie Janko fired?

Blue Bloods season 13Is Vanessa Ray leaving Blue Bloods, and what is the present status of her character Eddie Janko? Of course, we have a lot to wonder here.

The first thing that is really worth discussing here first is why we were worried in the first place. Based on some of the previews that we saw for “Fire Drill,” we know that the character faced modified duty or some other punishment after an incident in the field at a protest. She was being accused of police brutality, and the character was aware that there may need to be some changes to her status while everything was sorted out.

Did this mean that she was going to be booted off the force? Hardly, and that’s something that we saw emphasized through a lot of previews for this episode. There was no reason to think that Eddie’s job was in danger forever, though a lot of that is based on our own feeling that she would not be the sort to do something like intentionally violate some important rules. That’s just not a part of her DNA. We tended to think this situation was complicated or different than the complaint suggested.

One other reason to be confident about the character’s future? Entering this episode, there was no evidence that Vanessa was departing the show for good.

What happened tonight?

Well, there were some causes for concern thanks to a potential lawsuit and potential investigation, but she’s okay! Eddie will continue to be a patrol cop and Ray isn’t going anywhere. It was fun to see Eddie and Frank have so many scenes together, especially at the end of the episode — one where Eddie brought her daughter-in-law to Henry. As it turns out, he was pretty involved in making sure she was okay.
