Many Blue Bloods fans wondered if season 11 would be the final season of the family drama. The last two episodes certainly felt that way, and for good reason. This is why, despite the fact that the cast will return for Season 12, the ending felt so final.
The Reagans collaborated in the Season 11 finale of ‘Blue Bloods.’
Season 10 concluded with the shocking revelation that the late Joe Reagan had a son named Joe Hill. (Will Hochman). It culminated in his first dinner with the Reagans. Season 11 began with Joe still not completely at ease with his newly discovered family members. He left them after receiving backlash for his relationship with them. His big return, however, brought the season to a close.
Joe Hill reappeared in “The End” after an absence of many episodes. He’s been working undercover with an illegal gun ring in Manhattan. His cover is blown, and the Reagans try to track him down.
“Justifies the Means” demonstrates how far the Reagans will go to protect one of their own. Some of them go so far as to break the law. Erin Reagan (Bridget Moynahan) obtains evidence illegally and without a warrant. Jamie (Will Estes) and Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) accompany Joe out of state to support him.
The conclusion told a cinematic story. It also returned to the beginning of Blue Bloods, when the Reagans were still grieving Joe Reagan’s death. The possibility of losing the dead cop’s son instilled guilt in the family members. This was particularly true for Frank Reagan. (Tom Selleck).
Why was the season 11 finale written in the style of a series finale?
Given that each episode of Blue Bloods focuses on a different case, the two episodes stand out. But the Reagans and their friends were all brought together to work toward the same goal: bringing Joe home. There’s a reason why this felt like a series finale.
“We were told pretty early on, I believe before Thanksgiving, that our season finale would be the final two episodes and would air back to back, which I immediately took as they were planning to wrap the series,” Blue Bloods showrunner Kevin Wade told Deadline.
“Yeah, so I started thinking about how we could do something that could serve as a season finale but also as a series finale if necessary,” he explained. Wade ended up writing the season’s final two episodes.
Fortunately, the show will return for a 12th season. It’s too early to learn anything about the new season. However, the events of the finale may bring the Reagans even closer together than they were before.
