Jennifer Esposito Returning to Blue Bloods is the Ending Jackie Deserved
Actress Jennifer Esposito is returning to the CBS police procedural show Blue Bloods as Detective Jackie Curatola, who left the show in 2012 after being abruptly fired. In her return, Jackie will have a new job title as Chief of Police, which is more fitting for her character than her previous quick resignation. Her departure in season 3 felt like a defeat, but her return as Chief of Police represents the culmination of her hard work and dedication to the NYPD. By re-introducing Jackie this way, the show is undoing the missteps it made in 2012 and building her up as she deserves. The season 13 finale airs on May 19th at 10:00 p.m.
