The heroic death of Linda Reagan — a nurse killed in an accidental Medevac crash, in the course of saving lives — acquired a possibly darker tone with the Blue Bloods Season 9 premiere.

In the CBS drama’s year-ago opener, you will (sadly) recall, it was gradually revealed that Danny Reagan’s wife had died off-screen, between seasons. “Linda’s death wasn’t your fault. She was doing her job [as a nurse]. She died doing what she loved,” Danny’s therapist noted, softly dropping the bombshell on viewers. “She died in a helicopter crash, airlifting her patient.”

Friday - Episode - Possibility - Crash - Cartel

This past Friday’s episode, however, dangled the possibility that said crash was perhaps orchestrated, by Mexican cartel member Louis Delgado aka The Panther (played by Season 9 premiere guest star Lou Diamond Phillips).

“First your house burns up and then a chopper goes down — that’s some pretty bad mojo you carry around,” Delgado said to Danny upon being brought in for questioning about a cartel-related murder.

Delgado - Credit - Torching - Danny - Home

Since Delgado had already (and gladly) taken credit for the torching of Danny’s home at the close of Season 7, it could be inferred that he was hinting at having a hand in Linda’s work-related tragedy as well.

Or was he just goading his adversary?
