BLUE BLOODS “Mercy” Season 2 Premiere Review

BLUE BLOODS "Mercy" Season 2 Episode 1 Review – Last season of the NYC family cop drama ended with a serious bang when the Reagans uncovered a huge gang of dirty cops who were responsible for the murder of their son and brother Joe. It’ll be hard to top that finale, but season two had a bloody beginning when a man is found dead in his car. It turns out he’s a right hand man of the new mayor, and the husband of one of Erin’s friends who she just happened to be out to dinner with, so when Danny calls her with the news it just makes sense she’ll break it to the poor widow.
