Fans of Blue Bloods got surprised with the way the eighth season of the show ended. Two of the main characters took an unexpected step in their relationship.
During the 22nd episode of the eighth season of the show, titled My Aim Is True, Jamie Reagan, played by Will Estes, and Eddie Janko, portrayed by Vanessa Ray, got engaged.
The episode began when the now-couple apprehended a 15-year-old man who crashed a car.
Blanca Escobar, the boy’s mother who is played by Roxana Brusso, was sure he was going to be put in the criminal justice system as his older brother was wrongly convicted as a member of the ‘Prospect Park Six,’ a group of men wrongly convicted of a crime.
After that, a series of murders began taking place. One of the victims was Monica Graham (Tamara Tunie). At that point, Commissioner Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) suspected that everyone who wronged one of the Prospect Park Six would be killed.
Thanks to an investigation, the police discovered that one of the Six was ordering murders from afar. Later during the episode, Jamie and Janko were trailed by a hitman with a New Jersey license plate.
When Jamie was waiting for Janko to finish ordering food, the hitman shot him but he managed to evade the bullet. Janko noticed it and she fired at the hitman, who drove forward and crashed into a parked car, what killed him.
Janko later confessed that she heard ‘a voice’ in her head that made her get out and help Jamie. They shared a warm hug and, off-camera, got engaged. Further in the episode, they appeared together and Jamie introduced Janko as the future Mrs. Reagan.
As soon as the episode ended, fans took to Twitter to share their excitement. One of them was @Loralie323, who admitted she ‘squealed’ with delight at Jamie’s announcement.
Jamie, who couldn’t get Janko out of his mind, followed his sister Erin Reagan’s advice, who always suggested him to pursue her love even after she told him she was dating someone else.
