The Reagans can fuss and fight with the best of them, and Danny and Erin were in the middle of another clash on “Blue Bloods” on CBS.

Danny, played by Donnie Wahlberg, needed a warrant to look into a homeless man’s murder, according to an article from PopCulture. He went to Erin, played by Bridget Moynahan, for one since she is the Assistant District Attorney. The family understands that there’s a fine line between business and family matters, too.

Sometimes the line gets blurred, especially when Erin agrees to get a judge to sign off on a warrant. It’s not the first time she’s done this for Danny.

Anyway, Danny tried this first warrant for his investigation into a homeless man’s murder. But it didn’t help him out. He needed more coverage in the warrant if you will. So Danny goes back to Erin for more help in the form of a new warrant.

This time, Erin said no. So, for you regular “Blue Bloods” viewers, where do you think this situation spilled over into between Danny and Erin? If you said dinner time, then you are correct.

It got so bad that they were sniping at one another across the table. Well, the commish wasn’t going to have his family time interrupted. NYPD Commissioner Frank Reagan, played by Tom Selleck, decided that the family should vote on how this brouhaha should be settled.

Everyone voted and decided Erin was in the right. It took Frank to make the deciding vote, though. He told Danny to find another way to solve his problem.

The person Danny was pegging to arrest actually had nothing to do with the homeless man’s murder. Turns out that a homeless woman who was close to him ended up being arrested.

Wahlberg and Moynahan have been a part of the “Blue Bloods” cast since the show started in 2010. In fact, they are two of just five cast members to appear in all 234 episodes of the show through this year. The other three? Tom Selleck as NYPD Commissioner Frank Reagan, Len Cariou as Henry Reagan, and Will Estes as Jamie Reagan.

For the show, having their dinnertime scenes provides a chance for a sense of family and togetherness to appear. “Blue Bloods” has a loyal following on CBS, one that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon.
