Okay, we have got a doozy for all of you Blue Bloods fans out there. Do you think that the character of Eddie Janko is cut out to be a Sergeant?
For those at home who might not be so familiar with the show, Edit “Eddie” Marie Janko-Reagan is a police officer with the New York City Police department. She graduated from the Academy in 2013 and shortly after was paired up with Jamie Reagan out of the 12th Precinct. Eventually, Jamie got promoted and transferred to the 29th Precinct, and at his request, Janko got transferred there as well.
The two, of course, wound up getting married. Janko tried out hyphenating her last name as Janko-Reagan. But she ultimately decided that she would go by Officer Janko at work and Mrs. Reagan at home.
Officer Janko has a nice little ring to it. But can the same be said for “Sergeant Janko?” Fans on Reddit are debating whether or not she is cut out for the role of Sergeant after she was spotted taking the Sergeant exam again.
In a post titled, “Eddie as a Sergeant,” Reddit user u/thunderbolts99mcu explains why they don’t think it’s a good idea.
“So Eddie is taking the Sgt exam again and I have to say it’s not a good idea. Eddie has shown to have no skills or cuts to become a sergeant also how she gets mad at James when he does things as a Sgt show she’s not cut out for the role.
They go on to say, “It’s just more unnecessary Janko drama.”
‘Blue Bloods’ Fans Respond to Reddit User
How do you feel about Officer Janko taking the Sergeant exam? Apparently, fans on Reddit aren’t big fans of the idea.
“I agree I don’t think Eddie would make a good Sergeant at least not now with how her character is written. I do think she should be promoted or transferred to a special task force,” another fan said.
The OP responded by saying, “I think she works better in the DA office with Anthony.”
Meanwhile, another person chimed in with what they thought might be happening.
“Might be doing this as a way to promote Jamie to captain, while keeping Janko close in his CoC. But I agree it would be better for her to become a DA detective with Anthony,” they said. “Just looked it up the NYPD requires passing the Sgt exam to become either a Sgt or a detective so who knows how this will play out.”
“Either way Jamie needs to start climbing rank faster if he’s to become the new PC when the show ends or Tom Selleck leaves. I do hope the show goes on for a long time. A lot of the shows these days are hitting the 20+ seasons like NCIS and SVU. So as long as the writing is good and the ratings are good, you never know!”
