📺 Blue Bloods “Pain Killers” Season 8 Episode 9 (CBS)

Blue Bloods "Pain Killers" Season 8 Episode 9 from CBS
Directed by John Behring. With Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, Will Estes, Len Cariou. Danny and Baez join a narcotics task force to track a drug supplier; Baez comes into contact with drugs and gets an accidental overdose; Jamie and Eddie work to protect a rehabilitated sex offender; Frank forms an unlikely alliance with Mayor Dutton.

Episodes have gotten a bit more interesting lately. This one wasn’t too bad, though I’m still debating giving up on the series.

The political machinations between the PC and the governor were a bit odd and difficult to follow and seemed a bit like phony drama to me.

"Blue Bloods" Not Fade Away S7 | E11 from CBS, January 13, 2017
With Joseph Anderson, Narada Campbell, Omar J. Dorsey, Jeff Leaf. When Danny accepts a side job as a bodyguard for a recently released ex-con who took the fall for someone else, he uses the opportunity to go after the real criminal. Also, Gormley's wife, Sheila (Cady Huffman), asks Frank to give Gormley a bigger command position, and Jamie and Eddie witness a lovers' quarrel between two cops that leads them to reflect on their own complicated relationship.

A relatively up the middle episode. Good to see Baker get in some more significant screen time–perhaps a present before she’s away on maternity leave?
