With Blue Bloods not airing new episodes for the rest of 2021, what can fans expect when the newest episode of Season 12 arrives?

We will look to solve that mystery, Outsiders, with some help from Matt & Jess.

It’s going to have something to do with Sergeant Jamie Reagan, played by Will Estes. And we’ll pop the spoilers upcoming alert in right here.

The next new episode of Blue Bloods will air on January 7. It is titled Old Friends.

Let’s take a look at this Episode 10 synopsis. “Jamie makes a concerning discovery about a former mentor as he helps a neighbor handle a gambling debt,” it reads.

‘Blue Bloods’ Next Episode Gives Fans Upclose View of Jamie, His Mentor

OK, so what is this mentor doing in his life again? Could it be someone who helped him in his journey to joining the police force?

Is this person also a friend? If so, Jamie might just want to help this person out and return a heartfelt favor. The photo that is part of this Outsider story comes from the next episode. You can see Jamie, at right, speaking with this mentor.

But don’t expect Jamie to just be a pushover on Blue Bloods. He can show his tough side when needed.

Let’s also look ahead beyond this new episode. Wouldn’t it be cool to see Jamie and Eddie, played by Vanessa Ray, have some good couples moments? We think so, Blue Bloods fans.

We also know that Eddie is studying to take the Sergeant’s exam. Maybe this new year will find her joining Jamie in the Sergeant ranks.

Also, this episode features a return of Lyle Lovett as Major Waylon Gates of the Texas Rangers. He teams up with Danny Reagan, played by Donnie Wahlberg, after an illegal drug shipment arrives in New York City. Gates and Reagan are out there looking for the narcotics before the drugs really flood the streets.

Recent Episode Shows Reagan Couple Having A Deep Conversation

As far as couples go, Jamie and Eddie are still working on that communication part on Blue Bloods.

It also is a bit tricky that Jamie is also Eddie’s boss in the New York Police Department.

But Eddie is still having some issues with her new partner. They also try and connect with one another about their stuff.

Sometimes, though, their stuff mixes up with police work. But they do try and improve their connection at home. Jamie and Eddie just do their best to let a deep conversation play a role in easing over their issues. Will it work? Sometimes it does. Then sometimes, it does not.

The back-and-forth between them adds another dramatic touch to the CBS police drama.
