Let’s see what Estes said in previewing Friday night’s episode. It’s according to an article from TV Insider.

A hit has been put on Danny’s head by a former gang member. This leads to Frank putting Jamie on protection duty.

“As you can imagine, it goes over like a lead balloon with Danny that Jamie’s going to be his ‘handler,'” the Blue Bloods actor Estes says. “Danny doesn’t take orders so well, and Jamie is just trying to make the best of it.”

When Jamie puts a sleeping bag next to Danny’s bed, well, then, it’s serious.

This Blue Bloods episode will be on at 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central, on CBS.

Sometimes, the conversation rolls around to whether Jamie could handle being a father. Could he do it? Well, Estes thinks Jamie could.

“I think Jamie is ready for it,” he said in the Looper interview. “I definitely think Eddie could do it. The trick would be, like a lot of people find these days if everybody’s working, who’s watching the kids?

“You can obviously hire people and get help,” Estes said. “And a lot of people do, but depending on your hours, that can be an intense situation.”
