The hit-maker’s recent Total Package Tour featured his former boy band The New Kids On The Block, Boyz II Men, and Paula Abdul.

 Meanwhile, the hamburger chain Donnie co-owns with his two brothers, Mark and Paul, is reportedly in financial trouble.

The Wahlburgers location in Coney Island, Brooklyn shuttered this this summer because the restaurant did not pay its bills on time, Page Six reported.

‘They have not been paying their bills,’ the gossip site quoted a source as saying.

‘They were on the verge of being locked out of Coney Island’ because the restaurant did not pay its rent, the source said.

The brothers are also reportedly having trouble launching its Times Square location also because of issues with rent money.

Wahlburgers released a statement to Page Six, saying: ‘Wahlburgers required its Coney Island restaurant to close due to a number of factors.

‘The same franchise group was in the process of developing a space in Times Square.

‘In both cases the franchisee was not operating in compliance with Wahlburgers business practices and brand standards.

Wahlburgers has expanded to operate at least a dozen locations across the United States and Canada, with over two dozen more in the planning stages.

The company is run by the three brothers – two of whom, Mark and Donnie, are actors, and a third, Paul, who is a classically trained chef who has worked in the restaurant industry for 30 years.

CBS just killed off another TV mom

CBS just killed off another TV mom

Kevin Can Wait isn’t the only CBS show to return this fall with a wife and mother missing.

On Friday, the eighth-season premiere of the police drama Blue Bloods wrote off Linda (Amy Carlson), the wife of New York police detective Danny Reagan (Donnie Wahlberg) and daughter-in-law of Police Commissioner Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck).

In a twist fans didn’t see coming, Linda, an emergency-room nurse, was revealed, a bit more than halfway through the episode, to have died in the crash of a medical-evacuation helicopter while doing her job.

  everyone watching blue bloods thinking we all missed an episode and searching the Internet

I can’t say I’m crazy about this development — when I do watch Blue Bloods, which isn’t as often as I once did, I like the dinner-table scenes best, and Carlson’s character, who reminded me of an aunt of mine who also happens to have worked as an ER nurse, was one of my favorite Reagans.

At least Carlson might not have been blindsided, as it appears Kevin Can Wait costar Erinn Hayes was  by the decision to kill off her character, Donna, to make room in the life of Kevin James’ character for his former King of Queens costar, Leah Remini.

As Deadline reported, Carlson’s exit came at the end of her contract. She issued a statement on Twitter expressing gratitude to CBS and to Blue Bloods’ cast and crew. “I am so proud of my contribution to building this series,” she wrote.

And as sudden as Linda’s death appears to have been, her absence appears to have had a profound impact on Wahlberg’s character, who in Friday’s episode was contemplating retirement in the aftermath of the loss.

We may not see Carlson again in Blue Bloods, but it’s unlikely we’ve heard the last of Linda.

Spoiler alert: The rest of this post discusses a major plot point from Sunday’s episode of Showtime’s Ray Donovan.

I may never be happy about TV’s long love affair with dead mothers, which goes all the way back to the days of My Three Sons and The Courtship of Eddie’s Father.

But on Sunday, Ray Donovan, a drama on CBS’ corporate sibling, Showtime, showed us how it’s done (assuming it needs to be done at all), as it continued what’s been a much longer goodbye to a series regular.

Abby Donovan (Paula Malcomson, Deadwood), who’d been diagnosed with breast cancer last season, was shown taking her own life. After learning Abby had not been chosen in the lottery for a clinical trial of a new treatment, her husband, Ray (Liev Schreiber), reacted typically — and violently — by trying to fix things. Abby, though, had other ideas.

It was a heartbreaking episode, and an Emmy-worthy performance by an actress who’s been too often overlooked. And unlike some offscreen death, it fully honored a character who from the beginning has been one of the best reasons to watch the show.

Buenos, bonitos y ¡brothers!

Resultado de imagen para robert wahlbergResultado de imagen para DONNIE Y MARK WAHLBERG

Monterrey— Estos hermanos en Hollywood hacen suspirar a millones de seguidores.

Los Hemsworth

Con ojos tiernos y grandes músculos, los Hemsworth, Chris, Luke y Liam, tenían que estar en la lista.

El protagonista de ‘Thor’, de 34 años y poseedor de grandes bíceps que son las debilidad de muchas, tiene a su hermano mayor, Luke, de 36, no muy activo en cine, pero que este año hizo Hickok.

El menor es Liam, de 27 años, novio de Miley Cyrus y a quien se le ha visto en producciones como ‘Día de la Independencia: Contraataque’ y’ Los Juegos del Hambre’.

Los Jonas

Otro trío de guapos con la misma sangre son los Jonas Brothers.

Por un lado está Nick, el más pequeño, de 25 años, quien además de su voz, tiene un buen físico que ha enamorado a muchas y lo ha llevado a ser modelo de campañas en el ámbito mundial.

Le sigue Joe, de 28 años, quien ahora suena con la banda DNCE, que el 14 de septiembre de 2015 lanzó su primer sencillo ‘Cake by The Ocean’.

El mayor es Kevin, de 29 años. Está casado con Danielle Deleasa y es padre de dos hijos.

Los Franco

A sus 39 años y con la madurez que le sienta bien, James Franco, de 1.80 metros, también reúne las características de guapo, famoso, rico y con un hermano también conocido ante las cámaras, Dave, de 32.

Dave ha trabajado en cintas como ‘Nerve: Un Juego Sin Reglas’, y aunque tiene un estilo muy diferente a su hermano, también tiene su pegue.

Los Skarsgård

Para muchas, el más codiciado es Alexander, de 41 años, quien demostró su fuerza al protagonizar la cinta ‘La Leyenda de Tarzán’.

Este galán de origen sueco proviene de una familia a la que también pertenecen Gustaf Skarsgård (‘Vikings’ y ‘Camino a la Libertad’), de 36 años, y Bill Skarsgård, de 27 y quien interpretó a Pennywise, el payaso en la cinta de terror recientemente estrenada ‘It’ (Eso).

Los Wahlberg

El más famoso en Hollywood es Mark Wahlberg, de 46 años, quien es el menor de nueve hermanos.

Pero el actor tiene, al menos, otros tres hermanos que también se desarrollan entre las cámaras o han tenido que ver con ellas, como Donnie, de 48 años y a quien se le ha visto sobre todo en series como ‘Blue Bloods’.

Le sigue Robert, de 49 años, quien destaca como productor de televisión.

Y Paul, de 53, chef y propietario del restaurante donde se desarrolló la serie de la familia, Wahlburgers. También ha actuado en algunas producciones.

Los Affleck

Alto, fornido, famoso y muy guapo, además ganador de dos premios Oscar, así es Ben Affleck, de 45 años, quien aún provoca suspiros entre sus admiradoras, al igual que su ‘brother’ menor, Casey, de 42, quien también tiene un Oscar por su actuación en ‘Manchester Junto al Mar’.

Los Wilson

Y ya entrados en el tema de los brothers guapos, ¿qué pero le ponen a los Wilson? Luke, Owen y Andrew; en esta familia también hay para todos los gustos.

Para las chicas que les gustan los rubios está Owen, de 48 años, quien con cintas como ‘Zoolander’ y ‘Media Noche en París’ ha conquistado muchos corazones.

Con una personalidad distinta, más de chico serio, está Luke, de 46 años, quien ganó adeptos desde que se unió a la batalla legal de la ‘chica rosa’ que interpretó Reese Witherspoon en’ Legalmente Rubia’.

Y el mayor, Andrew, de 53 años, un poco menos activo en cine, pero que este año protagoniza Time Trap.

Joey McIntyre approves of New Kids references in the box office hit ‘It’

New Kid on the Block singer Joey McIntyre (left) saw the new Stephen King movie “It” starring Bill Skarsgard as the demonic clown Pennywise.

New Kid on the Block singer Joey McIntyre (left) saw the new Stephen King movie “It” starring Bill Skarsgard as the demonic clown Pennywise.

If you’ve seen “It,” you know that the horror film, based on the book by Stephen King, features a running joke about the New Kids on the Block.

A young character in the film — which takes place in 1989, when songs like “Hangin’ Tough” ruled the charts — is a secret fan of the Boston boy band.

We won’t say more; no spoilers here.

We did wonder whether the New Kids on the Block have seen the film, and if so, what they thought about being included in a movie that has already made more than $400 million at the box office worldwide.

New Kid Joey McIntyre told us he did see the film this week. He texted us this short review:

“I thoroughly enjoyed the New Kids references, laughing out loud; I was glad that particular character was the fan 🙂 and I love a good pun, so Beverly’s secret NKOTB puns were on point. Brought my 9-year-old who was dying to see it. (His first Rated R!) He loved it. Not too scary, tho (spoiler alert) a little uncomfortable when they started killing parents — didn’t want my son getting ideas!!”

McIntyre will be home in Boston with his family next month to host Mass. Eye and Ear’s eighth annual Sense-ation! Gala on Oct. 17.

The benefit, which has supported research, surgeries, and eyeglasses and hearing aids for kids in need, will feature a performance by Clay Cook of Zac Brown Band. But McIntyre might jump in with a song, too.

“I might sing a ditty myself,” he said.

‘Fuller House’ Season 3 Will Include a Musical Number, Wedding and Trip to Japan (Watch)

‘Fuller House’ Season 3 Will Include a Musical Number, Wedding and Trip to Japan (Watch)

In its upcoming third season, Netflix’s “Fuller House” will embrace its family sitcom roots more than it ever has. While the show has always explored the complicated dynamics between family members, this year it dives deeper into classic sitcom storylines from summer school, to planning a wedding, to a family vacation in Japan.And they’re kicking it all off with a special musical number, revealed the stars and executive producer Jeff Franklin to Variety at the Paley Center for Media’s Fall TV Preview for “Fuller House.”

“We try very hard not to repeat the stories or very special episodes of the original show,” says Franklin. “We don’t think in those terms anymore, but there are certain themes that are universal to all family shows, like these relationships and special moments you spend with loved ones that will always be at the center of what our show is.”

The third season of “Fuller House” starts on the first day of summer break, which lends itself to more celebratory episodes (“We do a fourth of July episode for the first time,” reveals Andrea Barber), as well as more opportunities for both the kids and the adults to get up to classic sitcom antics.

“The kids are in summer school, and they go on vacation, and that’s really fun,” says Jodie Sweetin. “It’s a season we never got to do on the original show because we were always in production September through spring with the traditional network schedule. But now we start off with a really fun, big, silly musical number to kick off the season.”

And while the original “Full House” saw the Tanner family taking vacations to Disneyland and Hawaii, this time around the gang will be venturing much farther for their vacation episode: to Japan. “It doesn’t happen until the second half of the season, though,” Sweetin says. (Netflix is splitting the third season of “Fuller House” into two parts, with the first premiering in September and the second in December.)

One aspect about “Fuller House” that is notably different from the original series, though, is a commitment to relationship stories and love triangles involving the core characters. “Full House” saw Danny (Bob Saget) and Joey (Dave Coulier) date occasionally, as it did with the teenage kids in later years, but the main romantic relationship throughout its run was between Jesse (John Stamos) and Becky (Lori Loughlin). “Fuller House,” on the other hand, has put D.J. (Candace Cameron-Bure) in the middle of two men, her high school sweetheart Steve (Scott Weinger) and new colleague Matt (John Brotherton).

“Netflix has been encouraging us very strongly to do serialized storytelling, and that’s something we never really worried about on the old show,” Franklin says. “There’s a large part of our audience that’s rooting for D.J. and Steve to pick things up 25 years later, so we throw obstacles in their way to keep people invested from episode to episode throughout the season. There are some surprises in store.”

The third season starts with D.J. and Matt taking a big step in their relationship, while Steve is engaged to his girlfriend. The wedding the show is working towards this year is Steve’s, but given the push-pull of his and D.J.’s relationship, whether or not he actually walks down the aisle is still in question. Meanwhile, Kimmy and her husband, from whom she has been separated (Juan Pablo Di Pace), are trying to make their relationship work.

And Stephanie and Kimmy’s brother Jimmy (Adam Hagenbuch) are still going strong, too. “Stephanie and Jimmy is a very big storyline, and just exploring the fact that she wants to become a mom and how that’s going to happen or if that’s going to happen is a very big piece of her storyline this year,” Sweetin says. “The original show had a lot of kid-centric storylines and not as much of the romantic stuff, but now people have a 30-year history with us, and they’re more invested in following their relationships.”

For those “Fuller House” fans who have been along for the ride since “Full House” first premiered, the third season will also set out to provide more proper closure for Danny and his ex Vicky’s (Gail Edwards) relationship. “I wasn’t there for that, that’s not my fault,” Franklin says of how the couple ended their relationship when Vicky took her dream job in New York in the seventh season. “We’re righting some wrongs this season!”

Other blasts from the past on the upcoming season will be Gia (Marla Sokoloff), who is more involved now that her daughter is in summer school with D.J.’s eldest son (Michael Campion), as well as Mr. Bear, who Sweetin had to bring back to set from her own home where he has lived since the original series wrapped, along with some other pieces of show memorabilia in the background in the Gibbler house. “If you remember Kimmy used to ride a unicycle,” Barber says. “So there might be a unicycle in the Gibbler house, as well as some other Easter eggs. Pause the show and take a look around.”

Guest stars Franklin would still like to see return  include Jaleel White, who made an appearance as his “Family Matters” character Steve Urkel in the fourth season of “Full House,” as well as the Beach Boys. But for DJ, Stephanie and Kimmy, the band that means the most is New Kids on the Block. Barber says she wants the New Kids on the Block to be to “Fuller House” what the Beach Boys were to “Full House. “Let’s get them on the show once or twice a season!” Barber says. “Who could say no to that?”

“Fuller House” season 3 will premiere on Netflix on Sept. 22.

Donnie Wahlberg Was Trying to Be ‘Low-Key’ During New Kids on the Block Shout-Outs in ‘It’ Movie

Donnie Wahlberg Was Trying to Be ‘Low-Key’ During New Kids on the Block Shout-Outs in ‘It’ Movie

Scary good! While It continues to scare moviegoers, Donnie Wahlbergtold Us Weekly he found some comic relief in the film thanks to several New Kids on the Block references. Watch the video above!

Wahlberg, 48, revealed that he caught the movie with his son and when NKOTB’s “Please Don’t Go Girl” song hit the screen, the two tried acting nonchalant about the whole thing.

“I looked over at him and he looked over at me and we don’t want to blow our cover either because it’s dad and son time,” Wahlberg told Us while sipping on his wife Jenny McCarthy’s newly launched ready-to-serve vodka cocktail, Blondies. “We are trying to be low-key. I don’t want to embarrass him, and fortunately no one heckled the New Kids stuff.”

Turns out Wahlberg’s son wasn’t embarrassed at all. In fact, he thought it was pretty cool.

“It was a really, really sweet moment,” Wahlberg admitted. “And the movie was scary as hell.”

It’s impressive Wahlberg found time to catch the flick since he’s juggling several different jobs. The actor just wrapped up the eighth season of his reality show, Wahlburgers, is continuing to make music with NKOTB and is gearing up for the next “heavy duty” season of Blue Bloodsin which he plays Det. Danny Reagan.

“Strangely I had to shoot it while I was on tour with New Kids on the Block,” the Boston native explained. “The first day of shooting was this incredibly emotional scene where Danny has to emote and the tour bus drove down from Connecticut, pulled up next to the makeup trailer. I got off and shot this incredibly emotional scene, got back on the bus and drove to my next concert in Long Island and kept going.”

Blue Bloods airs on on CBS Fridays at 10 p.m. ET.

New Kids on the Block Was the Sweetest Running Gag in the Movie ‘It’ “Please don’t go girl”

New Kids on the Block Was the Sweetest Running Gag in the Movie ‘It’

The reviews of It, the remake of the 1990 miniseries inspired by the 1986 Stephen King novel, have been generally positive with the expected qualifications that the clown at its center has been simplified to more of a monster — athletic, menacing, verbal — and less of what made it so creepy to begin with: mysterious, intangible, invisible, omnipotent.

The 2017 remake of the movie jumps forward a generation, so the kids of the film live in the late 1980s, not the late 1950s. The director, Andy Muschietti (best-known for directing the witch-mom story Mama), does an admirable job of not bogging down the movie with ‘80s symbols — despite Hollywood’s reverence for nostalgia — but he does weave in one memorable reference to the decade: The five-member boy band sensation New Kids on the Block.

The NKOTB show up at three memorable times, because they are a secret pleasure of Jeremy Ray Taylor’s Ben Hanscom, the sensitive, smart, new kid in town.

Early in the movie, we find Ben, preciously struggling to carry what looks like a Game of Thrones-inspired diorama down the steps on the last day of school (it’s actually a building he visits in the town later in the movie). He runs into Sophia Lillis’s Beverly Marsh, who takes pity on him and signs his yearbook after he says they are in Social Studies class together.

She notices he’s listening to music on his Walkman — “Please Don’t Go Girl” — by the New Kids, and sweetly hints how it’s not exactly the coolest choice for a boy in junior high. She keeps his secret though.

As she leaves, he says, “Please don’t go … girl!,” and sort of to himself, “…that’s a New Kids on the Block song.”

Later, Beverly tells Ben he’s got the “Right Stuff” after noticing a New Kids on the Block poster on his bedroom door, while the other members of the Loser’s Club miss it. No one else in the Loser’s Club knows about Ben’s NKOTB fandom.

Beverly and Ben: Secret New Kids on the Block fans.
Beverly and Ben: Secret New Kids on the Block fans.

While Beverly and Bill exchange a kiss later in the movie, and their flowering relationship gives Ben his first dose of adolescent pain, “Ben from sosh” and Beverly at least posses that shared secret, a moment of authentic sweetness in a movie, that at points, feels about as real a theme park.

PUESTA EN ESCENA

La novela de King consta de dos partes muy marcadas. En la primera los protagonistas son adolescentes y en la segunda, que ocurre 27 años más tarde (el ciclo que cubren las apariciones de Pennywise), adultos. Los guionistas tienen el acierto de trasladar la trama de los años 50 a los años 80, con lo cual sentimos a los adolescentes más próximos y pueden incorporan el lenguaje coprolálico propio a su edad, así como su gusto musical por algunas bandas de la época, como los New Kids on the Block y otras.

“It” y una breve historia del miedo a los payasos.

“It” y una breve historia del miedo a los payasos

Película con hartas referencias de la época,que van de afiches de los Gremlins hasta canciones de The Cure y New Kids on the Block.

 

El miedo a estos personajes no es nuevo ni tan poco común. Según los especialistas, se llama coulrofobia y está asociado a varios factores

 

Para fines prácticos (y cinematográficos), el villano de “It” (“Eso“) es un payaso. Pero en realidad, según la novela original de Stephen King, se trata de un ente que puede transformarse en tu más terrible miedo. En la nueva película del argentino Andrés Muschietti, que se estrena hoy, toma la forma de una aterradora mujer, de un monstruo decapitado, de un ser tóxico para un hipocondríaco, y así. Lo que te aterra, eso es “It“.

PESADILLA INFANTIL

Si hubiese que describir de una forma fácil esta película, podríamos decir que es un capítulode “Stranger Things” de más de dos horas. Con todo lo bueno y lo malo que eso pueda implicar. La cinta incluso comparte a uno de los protagonistas de la serie, el divertido Finn Wolfhard.

No parece un guiño gratuito. Y es que, ambientada en los años 80, la aventura de siete púberes tiene muchos ingredientes que saben a déjà vu: tranquilos suburbios agitados por hechos misteriosos, paseos en bicicleta, tiernos amoríos de verano y hartas referencias de la época,que van de afiches de los Gremlins hasta canciones de The Cure y New Kids on the Block. La nostalgia nunca falla.

Además, Muschietti tiene experiencia en esas lides: su anterior filme, “Mamá”, que significó su primera incursión en la industria hollywoodense, también abordaba el género del terror desde la perspectiva infantil. Porque allí se engendran los principales temores, aquellos que nos acompañan silenciosos con el crecimiento y que brotan luego sin importar el grado de madurez.Y así, por momentos, “It” se pone lo suficientemente adulta para abordar temas como el ‘bullying’, el abuso infantil, la segregación racial y religiosa, entre otros.

Finalmente, la película es también un homenaje al inagotable universo de King y de las decenas de películas que se han hecho sobre su obra. Las alusiones abundan, algunas como guiñossutiles, otras como obvias reverencias: allí están la jovencita ensangrentada de “Carrie”, la patota leal e inseparable de “Cuenta conmigo”, los delirios esquizofrénicos de “El resplandor” o la obsesión psicópata de “Misery”. Porque nadie como King para enseñarnos que el miedo suele tomar múltiples e inesperadas formas.

MÁS PAYASOS DEL TERROR

El Joker: Otro supervillano que hace de lo estrafalario su principal arma de destrucción. También conocido como el Guasón, el archienemigo de Batman es un psicópata sin códigos, que mata y perpetra todos sus crímenes con una demencia abrumadora. Su personalidad funciona perfecta en contraposición al atribulado y adusto Hombre Murciélago, al utilizar la risa y la broma como un escudo para desplegar todo su sadismo. En el cine, particularmente inolvidables fueron las personificaciones de Jack Nicholson y Heath Ledger, en ambos casos casi opacando al héroe principal. Imposible no temerle (y a la vez quererlo).

VIOLATOR

En “Spawn”, la popular serie de antihéroes y demonios creada por
el canadiense Todd McFarlane, no podía faltar este robusto payaso
que es el más poderoso y peligroso de los hermanos Phlebiac, así como uno de los más sanguinarios rivales del protagonista. También
tiene la habilidad de adquirir múltiples aspectos. Elegido entre los
100 mejores villanos de las historietas de todos los tiempos, Violator
también se hizo de una miniserie especial en la saga.

CLOWN

La premisa es tan absurda como espeluznante. Desesperado porque el payaso no llega a la fiesta infantil de su hijo, un hombre decide ponerse la nariz roja y todo el atuendo y hacer de improvisado bufón.
Los problemas empezarán cuando no pueda sacarse el disfraz y deba ir a trabajar y hacer su vida cotidiana como un auténtico payaso. Con
ello, su personalidad empezará a alterarse para mal. Cinta dirigida por Jon Watts y producida por Eli Roth, un experto en lo retorcido.

TWISTY

Fue tal el éxito del maquiavélico personaje interpretado por John Carrol Lynch en la serie “American Horror Story: Freak Show”, que repitió el plato para otra de las temporadas (“The Cult”). Azuzado
por la coulrofobia natural de algunos de los protagonistas, este asesino serial se despacha explotando los diversos miedos que
rondan, sobre todo, al personaje de Ally Mayfair Richards: la sangre, las tumbas y otros elementos que hacen ecos del característico
horror psicológico de la ficción. Fobias que se materializan en este
monstruo circense.

EL MUÑECO DE “POLTERGEIST”

Con esta película de 1982, el recientemente fallecido Tobe Hooper se anotó una obra maestra de lo sobrenatural, repleta de fantasmas,
posesiones diabólicas y maldiciones. Ya cerca del clímax, en una secuencia arquetípica dentro de la habitación infantil, el
pequeño Robbie se asoma a los misterios debajo de la cama antes de ser atacado por un extravagante y en apariencia inocente
muñeco de payaso. La lamparita de Darth Vader que se puede ver en la escena es un guiño que nos invita a pensar cuáles son los verdaderos villanos de la niñez.

Blue Bloods season 8: Could Donnie Wahlberg’s Danny really retire?

Donnie Wahlberg's Danny

Is it possible that Donnie Wahlberg’s Danny could actually leave the force behind on the Blue Bloods season 8 premiere? It’s a pretty difficult thing to think about, but it’s certainly something that’s possible.

Based on the details that are out there about the upcoming premiere in just three weeks, we know that Danny is going to be at a major crossroads in terms of his career. He’s worked with the force for a long time, and in turn, can take credit for doing a lot of wonderful, heroic things. Yet, at the same time he’s also more acutely aware than ever before of the target that comes with being a police officer. There are a number of people who want to see the character dead, and in the season 7 finale, he saw his house burn to the ground.

 

Will he recover from that? We know that the Reagan as is to keep fighting and taking on whatever obstacle is thrown at you. With that, we certainly do think that he will. Nonetheless, along the way we’re going to see him having a significant debate over his future.

The merits of him leaving his job start with one very simple notion: If he walks away from the force, one of the things that he could in turn feel is a greater sense of safety for his family. They don’t have to worry anywhere near as much about someone targeting him, and he in turn can probably protect them better. There are certainly some other jobs out there that would be willing to hire him, even if some of them (like private security) could carry with them some dangers of their own.

 

As for some of the merits of sticking with the job, most of those start with just getting an opportunity to do more work that benefits the entire city of New York. Maybe Danny thinks in terms of the greater good, or that he is putting away bad guys who could hurt his family if they are out on the street. There are inherent risks that go with being a cop, but so long as he is careful, he can try to mitigate some of those risks from here on out.

Blue Bloods is, at its core, a cop show — therefore, we do want to think that no matter what happens, at the end of the Danny is going to be involved in law enforcement somehow. Yet, this debate is still important. If he were to not carefully consider his future after an incident like this, much of his humanity would be stripped. This is the sort of incident that really makes you question everything, including if you’re living your life the right way. It should be a strong focus for the premiere.

Do you think that Danny could actually retire?
