Blue Bloods fans outraged over ‘victim-shaming’ Joe scene: ‘Blame it on the writers!’



Meanwhile, u/Reggie_Barclay took aim at the show’s bosses as well: “The writing (to me) has been poor this season—almost jump the shark bad. 

“This episode was merely people acting out of character to move the plot. I can’t ever imagine myself being so rude to my aunt and I know her fairly well.”

Whether the writers will implement a lighter tone to the Reagan family’s conflicts remains to be seen.

However, given Joe and Erin’s hot-tempered clash in episode six of season 13, it seems it will take a lot for bridges to be mended.

Blue Bloods season 13 continues Friday, December 2 on CBS in the USA. A UK release date is yet to be announced.
