Mercy

Series 2 - Episode 1 Mercy

Review

The sophomore year of the cop/family drama finds a new executive producer, Ed Zuckerman, at the helm. Zuckerman has previously served a long stint on the Law & Order franchise and his appointment fuelled speculation in the States that the procedural aspects of Blue Bloods were going to be emphasised at the expense of relationship angst.

Thankfully an assurance has been made that the balance will remain the same - a good thing too as those round-the-dinner-table debates featuring the entire Reagan clan were what made series one so distinctive.

This opener finds Jamie working with a new partner and Danny discovering that one of the perps who tried to rob a bank is a former cop.

Summary

Frank is asked to publicly downplay the significance of the murder of an event organiser. However, he is caught between duty and his family when he discovers the victim was married to one of Erin's closest friends. Meanwhile, Jamie embarks on his first undercover mission, where he makes an intriguing new acquaintance. Drama, starring Tom Selleck, with guest appearances by Tony Bennett and Carrie Underwood.
