Look who is back in town, Outsiders! Yes, sir, the Reagan family is back in action after taking a break from original episodes on Blue Bloods.

Well, this is what Bridget Moynahan, who plays Assistant District Attorney Erin Reagan on the CBS police drama, says.

She posted this on Instagram just hours before Blue Bloods returned after new episodes had not aired for a bit.

And the photo is, of course, at the Reagan dinner table.

In the pic, from left to right, are Will Estes, Vanessa Ray, Moynahan, Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg, Tony Terraciano, and Len Cariou.

Fans are letting Moynahan know of their excitement over the snap.

One writes, “The room looks oddly familiar. miss you!” Another says, “Yeah I love the show me and my family watch the show even reruns I love that it talks about [the] family value I show it so very good”.

And we have this from another fan that puts it all in perspective: “Thank Heavens, I was having withdrawals”.

This Friday’s episode also will feature Lyle Lovett coming back as his Texas Ranger character.

Blue Bloods can be seen at 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central, on CBS.

‘Blue Bloods’ Fans Admit Their Annoyance When This Word Is Uttered

There is a word used on Blue Bloods that will send fans through the roof. They do not like it and don’t want to hear it anymore.

Really, if Blue Bloods would just cut this one word out, then all will be well.

Now, what word is it and is it that bad? OK, the word is “forthwith” and, like, what does it mean?

We turn to a trusted source, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. So, forthwith means “without any delay.”

Like, let’s go forthwith to capture the bad guys right now.

Over on Reddit, a thread discusses this disliked word. The first fan writes, “Anyone else annoyed that someone says the term forthwith in every episode? I can honestly say I’ve never used the term in my 45+ years.”

Another Redditor writes, “Forthwith’ is code for ’emergency’ in both the NYPD and FDNY. Not saying it would be akin to not saying ‘stat on a medical drama.”

This fan says, “I’ve read the jargon used by NYPD. Not sure if true or not. But apparently, they do try to accurately represent the NYPD in the way they talk, interact, dress, etc.”

All of these reasons for the use of the word seem legit. Now, your job, Outsiders, is to listen for this word and count how many times it is used in an episode.
