This discussion thread is for our theories and desires for Season 9 Episode 1.
What do you expect to see? What do you want to see? Do you think the writers will try to do something completely unexpected?
Remember: agree or disagree with others' theories and desires, it doesn't matter, just BE RESPECTFUL.
The first contribution is actually from DELODA061. Their ideas are as follows:
Officer Involved Shooting Team working over the crime scene for the Janko shooting of Donte Sorrento. They reviewed the videos and continued to get all the witness statements and evidence at the Coffee Shop as well as at the BMW that crashed almost a block down the road. Commissioner is getting Sid to check on the "RULE" concerning married cops working in same Patrol vehicle let alone Precinct.
Danamora Prison: (UP STATE New York)
Dominic Sorrento, father of Donte Sorrento was just informed that his son was killed by the NYPD. The information came from one of his other Sons (Diego) while speaking on a burner phone with his Father who is using a cell house phone smuggled into the prison (people will remember this prison for the two Cop Killers that escaped from there a few years ago. Dominic orders his Sons to find out who shot his baby boy. He also told them to get a hold of their cousins.
SORRENTO FAMILY BACKGROUND:
~The Sorrento Family are Hitmen for hire. They deal mostly with the remaining Mob families in the New York Jersey area. Donte was the baby of the family. Dominic told his eldest Son to not let Donte take the job killing family members of those involved wrongly convicted men (SIX) recently released after being proven to be guilty. Five family members have already been killed by a hitman. The family is headed by Dominic, his eldest son Diego, Damien. They have two male cousins that also work for the family, a female named Marie Sorrento and her two brothers Michael and Martin. All have been suspected of taking out witnesses as well as work that deals with hits for the Mob.~
The Sorrento brothers were told to find out who killed their baby brother. Their father wants the name of the cop that killed his son.
Jack Reagan has decided to look into attending Penn State, PA. Danny has requested a week off so that he could go with Jack on his campus tour. Sean and Henry also plan to go with them and make a stop at Hersey Park on the way back. Danny felt it was important for him to be there for Jack and that a vacation might be exactly what his family needs.
BACK AT THE 12th PRECINCT:
Janko and Jamie have just been told by Sgt. Anthony Renzulli that Janko was cleared by the Shooting Team Investigators. Renzulli asks them if they are ready to get back on patrol and both stated yes, they want to get things back to normal.....12 David is back 10-8!!!!!
BEHIND THE SCENES:
The Sorrento family has placed a $1,000,000 dollar contract on the dark web for a hit on the NYPD officer that killed their brother. They still don't know who killed Donte, yet, they want to start getting their people to put their ears on the ground and get snitches out onto the street. They want anyone with a cop on the take to come forward.
Sid Gomley has also been busy asking the NYPD TARU unit to do a threat assessment for Janko and Officer Reagan. Sid had worked with The NYPD Organized Crime Control Bureau (NYPD OCCB) back in the day and remembered that there was a Sorrento shooter that worked Jersey and NYC. He kept it on the down low until he can get the assessment back before bringing it to the Commissioner.
I hope to see "traffic" on the upcoming season of Blue Bloods Season #9 Episode #1. I'd like to see them start with the shooting incident or close to it and having Sorrento (Donte) who was responsible for five killings of witnesses or those who had family members involved with the six men recently released from prison after being wrongly convicted and proven innocent.
I would like to see his family seek revenge on the "COP" that killed their kid brother.....This might give JANKO more time as opposed to DANNY, DANNY, DANNY.....for most episodes. Just saying...thanks...
What I actually expect to see: Jamie and Eddie trying to actually balance their relationship at work now that it is open and concrete. Frank clashing with the new mayor over policy and police response. Erin having to deal with a new boss or maybe becoming the new boss. Danny being Danny and working a case.
Personally, I would like to actually see in both the episode and new season: Jamie and Eddie's wedding, although it is equally probable that they will have it off-screen. Related - I could also see Frank drafting new regulations regarding marriage and dating at the same precinct although they would likely grandfather in any previous marriages (I hope) which would lead to Jamie and Eddie remaining partnered. I don't think any fans would be happy if Jamie and Eddie were no longer partnered.
Also, I have been wanting them to really actually explore other facets of Danny's personality. Maybe showing him using techniques from his therapist to manage his anger, instead of always being explosively hot-headed. I love Danny, but sometimes it gets a bit boring/routine. We have seen Jamie grow up and change, but Danny hasn't changed too much, except in Season 8. Maybe have Frank comment to Danny that he still thinks he could move up and be commissioner someday when Frank retires. Everyone loves Jamie in that position, but every political position swings and after Frank I imagine a politician type in the role and the cops getting annoyed with their commissioner playing the politics. Sometime after that they would want another true cop in the role. While I can see the writers having Danny start dating, I can't really see him moving on so quickly.
With Nicky, I would like to see her getting her results from the Academy entrance exam and making decisions regarding her future. Maybe go on a different ride-along with Jamie, or Danny, to help her make a decision if the results are favorable. Same with Jack and Sean. Show them struggling with college applications and how money weighs in. What they want vs. what the family wants.
I love some (most) of your ideas. I can't wait til September..
Honestly I don’t know what to expect between Eddie & Janko but something I’ve pondered is if Nikki where to become a cop. I feel like it’s something the producers debated on and might even happen based off here taking the exam leads us to it
What do you think?
