Amy Carlson Breaks Silence On Blue Bloods Exit - News Flash - Entertainment Weeklyget get your for
The main cast of Blue Bloods has remained pretty consistent throughout the show's history, with familiar faces like Tom Selleck signing on for each new season year after year. But last fall, fans were shocked by the abrupt departure of actress Amy Carlson. Here's a breakdown of everything that happened around the death of her beloved character Linda Reagan. After taking some time off to be a stay-at-home mom, she returned to work as an ER nurse at St. Victor's Hospital in New York City. Linda first appeared in the show's pilot episode and remained as a main character throughout the seasons, as the show explored her occasionally tense but loving relationship with Danny.
Fans were shocked and saddened by the sudden and barely-explained death of the character, who had been part of the show since the pilot, and are still sending Carlson supportive messages more than a month after the Season 8 premiere, Carlson said in an interview with Deadline. In the interview, Carlson opened up about her exit, saying that she doesn't think the show handled Linda's death well and that she'd be willing to return for a flashback giving her a proper sendoff. I wouldn't have done that. If it were up to her, Linda's death would have been shown. I'm not sure how I would've chosen it but I just know that for the fans to have a way to grieve, to move through it, I think it would've been nice for them. That's just what I hear from them all the time, 'We really want you to come back', and I'm like, that's impossible. But they also say we wish we could've mourned the character.
She was also an ER nurse at St. Victor's hospital in NYC. Linda died in a helicopter crash on May 28 th , It is heavily implied that Linda grew up in Staten Island and lived there until her death  . Linda and Danny met in High School where she was the "pretty Italian girl" that every Irish guy fell in love with . She graduated top of her class in nursing school and spent 10 years on the floor at King's General before taking time off to be a stay at home mother .

In this week's shocking episode of Blue Bloods , Luis Delgado, the man who torched Danny Reagan's house, revealed that Linda Reagan did not die in a helicopter accident. Her death was ordered a Mexican drug cartel Danny was investigating. Danny and the DEA went to Delgado's apartment, where his ankle monitor said he was. They heard Delgado's voice, but he was really talking to them through a camera.

During the Season 8 premiere of Blue Bloods , it was revealed that Danny Reagan's wife, Linda, had died in a helicopter crash. The ER nurse had taken some time off to be a stay-at-home mom but had decided to return to work. While her unexpected death was a blow to fans of the CBS series, viewers were especially upset that the crash was not show on the show. You cannot kill off Linda and just casually mention it in a therapy session! Now, one season later, it is being hinted that Linda did not die not an accident, but was actually murdered. Donnie Wahlberg, who portrays Danny on the show, also hinted there is more to Linda's death. That Danny did provoke revenge.
By Nellie Andreeva. That marked the exit from the show of Amy Carlson , who played Linda since the pilot. She was recurring the first season and a series regular since Season 2. I hear Carlson had fulfilled her contract, which was up at the end of Season 7, and felt it was time to move on. Still, this was a rather abrupt exit, with her character not getting a proper sendoff, a move that has been met with disapproval by some fans. This is a rare departure for the long running, much watched, and fairly cast-consistent Tom Selleck-led NYPD family drama.
