‘Blue Bloods’ Season 11 Episode 3 Spoilers: Will Jamie be investigated? He plays by rules but has now messed up
Jamie getting investigated doesn’t make sense under normal circumstances. He’s a good cop and unlike Danny, he mostly minds his own business
Spoilers for ‘Blue Bloods’ Season 11 Episode 3 ‘Atonement’
Episode 2 of ‘Blue Bloods’ Season 11 saw quite a bit of drama. The biggest of which was the truth about Joe Hill (Will Hochman) coming out to the world. That he was Commissioner Francis ‘Frank’ Xavier Reagan’s (Tom Selleck) illegitimate grandchild was discovered by journalists.
In the short post-episode promo last week, we saw Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) exclaim how his saint of a brother was getting investigated. Now, the question is, which brother? Is it Jamie (Will Estes)? Or is it Joe Sr? Initially, it made sense for the latter to get investigated in light of the truth about Joe Hill being made public. It is, after all, a scandal of the newly famous New York hero who is found to be the illegitimate grandson of the police commissioner. And it would make sense to have an internal investigation to see if there was any nepotism at play.
But in light of a promo for the episode, it would seem that the Reagan brother being investigated will, in fact, be Jamie, even though it really doesn’t make sense under normal circumstances. He’s a good cop. He plays by the rules, unlike Danny, and he mostly minds his own business.
So, what might happen?
The new episode, ‘Atonement’, will see Frank struggling from a distance, after Joe’s lineage as a Reagan is revealed, especially because his grandson wants to fight his own battles. The episode, per the synopsis, will also see Erin and Anthony receive gift-wrapped evidence, as they carefully weigh their options to either take down a long-time mafia leader or stifle an ambitious mob up-and-comer. Also, Danny’s opposition to authority clashes with Jamie’s adherence to the rules, as both brothers work to solve a murder.
In a promo for the episode, we see Danny and Jamie talk about a “young Latina woman” who may have come to the precinct some time ago. When Jamie says he doesn’t remember on account of being “pretty slammed”, Danny jogs his memory by saying she may have mentioned her grandfather.
Only then does Jamie remember her saying that someone pushed her grandfather off the stairs. Jamie remembers asking her how she knew, to which she allegedly replied that God told her. Jamie had turned her away after that. But things got complicated. Danny says that not only did her grandfather die, but she also had brought video evidence of him being pushed down the stairs. Jamie had unwittingly turned away a homicide. And while it is obvious that his mistake was only just that, this could be the reason why he may get investigated.
Now we know that the murder will be solved by both of them. But what is unclear is how this mess-up will affect Jamie, not just his conscience, but also his career. This is, after all, a big error of judgment. And for him to be investigated, it would probably require the woman to file a suit against him for negligent behavior. Things really aren’t looking too bright for the Reagans right now, are they?
‘Blue Bloods’ Season 11 premiered on December 4, 2020, and more episodes will air every Friday. Catch the third episode ‘Atonement’ at 10 pm ET/9 pm CT on CBS Network December 18, 2020.
