A Fatal Helicopter Crash
In a surprising twist to the series, it is revealed at the beginning of season 8 that Danny Reagan’s (Donnie Wahlberg) wife died in a helicopter crash while on the job...
...many people are upset with the showrunners for killing off Linda, as she was an important character, and audiences had grown to love her since season one of the show.
