Today may have been Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding day, fans of Blue Bloods have their own NYPD royal wedding to look forward to now that season beat cop Jamie Reagan popped the question to his on-screen love interest Eddie Janko.

This turn of events has been the happy ending we’ve been waiting for our favorite slow burning ship. In true Reagan fashion, these partners-turned-lovers revealed their new relationship status in the sweetest way at the family’s weekly Sunday dinner. Upon walking in, Jamie asked for one more place setting. Pulling Eddie into the room, he revealed that she was not their as his partner Officer Janko. Rather, he wanted his family to meet the future Mrs. Jamison Reagan. When Frank and Henry brought up that they no longer be partners on the job, Jamie invoked his Harvard Law School roots, stating he did his research and there was no rule on the books against it. They planned on being partners in every aspect of their lives. Upping the cuteness factor even further, Jamie and Eddie recited a rough draft of their their vows, which ended with Eddie calling Frank “dad.” With the loss of big brother Danny’s wife Linda still looming, Eddie’s entry into the Reagan clan may be just what the family needs to fill the void her death left behind and to help them all heal.

After seasons of waiting for them to wake up and realize they were meant for each other, this moment proved that Eddie and Jamie’s love story was well worth the wait. Looks like wedding bells will be ringing next season.

Watch the adorable Sunday dinner reveal below.


Shipping Saturday: George Tucker and Wade Kinsella “Hart of Dixie”


So, I’m at episode sixteen of my season one binge of Hart of Dixie, and there is one pairing I just can’t get enough of: George Tucker and Wade Kinsella. (Hey, everyone knows I’m a sucker for a good BRoTP.) Set up from the pilot episode as rivals for Dr. Zoe Hart’s heart, the writers could have taken the easy way out and made these two sworn enemies. Instead, they went the much more interesting route of making George and Wade bros from way back.

On the surface, they couldn’t be anymore opposite. George is a straight-laced lawyer with eyes set on settling down, while Wade is a bar-tending slacker, who lives for multiple drinks and multiple women. In fact, some days it seems the only thing they have in common is their interest in Zoe. Yet, as episodes unfold, we see how much these two actually need each other. Whether it’s getting even with an old enemy, securing some sort of iconic item for a town event to avoid Lemon’s wrath, or swilling beers at the Rammer Jammer, George and Wade are the perfect partners in crime. Okay, their plans may not be foolproof, and they may bicker like two old ladies. Yet, these two have each other’s backs to the extreme. George got shot in the leg with a crossbow trying to prevent Wade from getting shot with a crossbow, while Wade made sure to check up on George when his dad was hospitalized after sharing some heartfelt words about his buddy at George’s award ceremony.

Let’s face it. Wade needs George and vice versa. George needs Wade to shake him out of his comfort zone once in a while and remind him that golden boys need to take a walk on the wild side too. And Wade? Well, Wade needs George to keep his schemes from going completely off the rails and to smooth over the ruffled feathers Wade tends to leave in his wake. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that George can   help bail Wade out of jail (provided he’s not in there with him).

Here’s to George and Wade. I can’t wait to see what kind of trouble these Blue Bell boys stir up next.


Shipping Saturday: Long Live the Hart! (Of Dixie That Is)


Taking a week off, but I’m giving a little love to my new binge show Hart of Dixie. I’m about six episodes in, and I’m totally shipping Zoe and Wade. Plus, it is the perfect way to get my Scott Porter fix now that Friday Night Lights has been removed from Netflix. (George Tucker throws off some serious Jason Street vibe.) I’m excited to see what the little town of Blue Bell has in store!
