There's no doubt in my mind that the writers have been doing little
more than phoning it in for the last several seasons. Despite that, I
will miss it once it's gone because it at least pretended that
traditional values like freedom, free speech, and family still matter.
Whatever replaces it is likely to be "woker than woke"....

I wonder what the final season will bring for the characters? I suppose
I'm still hoping to see Erin and end Anthony end up together, just to
prove a babe and a schlub could be together. At the very least
Danny and Baez ought to get married. If Jamie finally woke up and
ditched Eddie (sp?) that would be icing on the cake. Also, if it ends
with Frank retiring, Baker has to become his successor.

I want them to bring back Erin's daughter, but have her be a secret
serial killer that Danny has to bring down and only at the end does he
find out the Manhattan Cannibal is his own niece Nicky!

I really like this "twist" - if they did that, I'd actually come back to
watch the last few episodes!! ;)

I like it although I’ve always pictured her being taken down by all those
vermin, she’s trying to help in San Francisco. Ending up, living in the
caves below the city, and breeding the future generation of Morlocks.

Also, can somebody please please please kill her father?

Actually, better is if she shoots *him* dead (and maybe Eddie too!!),
before she's taken into custody!!

As much as I’m looking forward to her mother prosecuting her, this doesn’t
really work for me.

She definitely needs to kill her father. If she he kills Danny and Eddie
that means the last scene is Baez holding her baby all by herself.

That works.

And then the last shot is a flashback of her singing “me my shadow“ with
Henry at the talent show all those years ago.

Wow. Seriously, that never occurred to me. Has Erin ever liked a guy for
any reason other than his looks?

They swing so wildly back-and-forth on that I don’t know what the hell the
idea is. I thought sure they were going a different direction when they
brought back Jennifer Esposito.

I’d like that but he’s way too Catholic.


Also, if it ends

They’ve been grooming Jaime to be the new commissioner routinely if
inconsistently.

He still seems too young, but by the end of the last season, the actor will
be almost 50!

But for that to happen, they have to get rid of Eddie. There’s no way
anybody will make Jamie commissioner with a mentally ill wife. And he can’t
divorce her. And they can’t get rid of her with a scandal. Which means she
has to die. Probably heroically in the line of duty. Although a short-lived
illness would garner sympathy.

As much as I like Baker, I just don’t see her in the line of succession.

like Frank followed Henry but with someone else in between if I

"with a mentally ill wife"?

Yoots today, ptfui. Check out Nixon's Attorney General John Mitchell
and his wife, Martha.

Just like with Barbra Streisand, there's a syndrome named after her...

The problem with Baker is I just don’t see the mayor appointing a female
police detective who’s been working as a glorified receptionist for the
last 15 years. Besides, you need her where she is to keep the office
running.

He also lacks the years of upper management of the career bureaucrat
that most office holder must have.

The fact that she's a woman is probably an advantage in terms of
appealing to the feminists and other "progressives". But yeah,
glorified receptionist may well be the way she is perceived. Mind you,
I have the feeling she "got things done" in other respects although
this is almost never mentioned.

Despite that, I will miss it once it's gone because it at least
pretended that traditional values like freedom, free speech, and
family still matter.
And that’s got to be Selleck’s doing.

But for that to happen, they have to get rid of Eddie. There’s no

And he can’t divorce her. And they can’t get rid of her with a

line of duty. Although a short-lived illness would garner sympathy.
As long as she dies, I'm fine with them doing it any way you like.

As much as I like Baker, I just don’t see her in the line of succession.
She's got the smarts and the right moral center plus she's already
in Frank's inner circle. Jamie can follow her when he's a bit
older, just like Frank followed Henry but with someone else in
between if I remember correctly.
As I mentioned earlier, Jamie’s almost too damn old at this point!
He also lacks the years of upper management of the career bureaucrat
that most office holder must have.
Oh, I agree, he’s way under ranked and way underqualified, but I still
think he’s the only reasonable possibility.

The problem with Baker is I just don’t see the mayor appointing a
female police detective who’s been working as a glorified
receptionist for the last 15 years. Besides, you need her where she
is to keep the office running.
The fact that she's a woman is probably an advantage in terms of
appealing to the feminists and other "progressives". But yeah,
glorified receptionist may well be the way she is perceived. Mind you,
I have the feeling she "got things done" in other respects although
this is almost never mentioned.
We’ve seen her meet, people secretly out of the office to convey messages
that couldn’t be given via official channels.

Exactly. It's possible to imagine that this is just the tip of the
iceberg in terms of what she actually does. We can picture her involved
in all sorts of backroom stuff that might be very influential. For all
we know, she might also be very active in committees that recommend
changes to police procedures or things like that. She *could* actually
be quite a major player in her own way, even if we rarely see that in
the show. They could potentially show more of that in the final season
to justify her ascent to the top job if they wanted to.

Not that I actually expect that to happen. I don't think these writers
have nearly that much imagination.

I think most of us would agree that this is several years too late!
So one more season? Didn’t CBS (excuse me the racist eye) just give Selleck
two more years in exchange for slashing the cast and budget?

I wonder if deals like that are entirely one-sided and meaningless or if
they’re having to give him millions to buy him out?
