I never understand how adding Lorraine Bracco to anything is a recipe for success.

Hi guys. Been forever and a day since I posted here.
So Friday night is the season opener for BB, which we watch religiously. I missed the first 30 minutes of the show due to my regular Friday evening gig working at high school football games. I joined the wife around the time Danny had one his meetings with the shrink. Then the matter of Linda's death comes up. I turn to the wife and ask, "Linda's dead?!?" To which she states that this was the first she heard of it. Then we thought we missed an episode. No, that is tonight's show. So for the next few hours my head is spinning. First because I've always liked Amy Carlson. Two because I especially like the Linda character, being a non-Reagan and all.
I have to say without any concrete proof to the contrary, it has to be a contract dispute or fatigue with the role/series. I was also kind of hoping that Linda is actually in the hospital in a coma and will be brought back into the show when the contract issues were resolved. But they did say died in the crash correct?

Don't know how credible this is, but someone who claims to be a crew member on the show posted on facebook that is exactly what happened. Her contract was up, she wanted a raise, CBS made a counteroffer and she refused. Supposedly it came down to the last minute. It's interesting that the show and network were able to keep a lid on it, but couldn't do the same with Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park's exits on Hawaii Five-0. I liked Linda, but it seemed like she was barely in season 7. Maybe the actress didn't want to make a full time commitment to what had become a very part time role unless the network upped the money.

Read that Linda's fast demise was due to a review re budget cuts. Amy Carlson posted a letter, thanking everyone for the time she had spent on Blue Bloods but gave no reason why she had left.

Agree with everyone who wondered when it was said Linda had died in a helicopter crash, if an episode had been missed. Strange way of doing things! Think a big mistake has been made by killing off Linda. If budgets had to be trimmed, one character they could easily have written out is Erin's daughter as she could have gone away to another college or university.

The actress wanted out. She said the character had gone as far as it could go. Selleck didn't sign his season 7 & 8 contract until the day before shooting started. What a conundrum that would have been.

How about writing out Danny's two sons. Have they ever even had a story line?

She was Tony Soprano's Dr. in The Sopranos and prior to that I remember her opposite the great Sean Connery in Medicine Man. Check out this wonderful exchange.

She was okay in Goodfellas but so far I don't see any chemistry between her and Frank. I always loved when Bebe Neuwirth was on the show, there were sparks flying off of the tv screen when her and Tom had scenes together............

I agree about Bebe Neuwirth, that woman has chops.
