‘Blue Bloods’: Frank Reagan Has a Big Decision To Make in Preview of Friday’s Episode

by Keeli Parkey

Going into the 12th season of “Blue Bloods” fans of the procedural cop drama had many questions. One of the most frequently asked of these questions was whether or not Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) would continue on in his tenure as the commissioner of the New York City Police Department.

Would Frank decide that he has given enough of his life and energy to the NYPD? And, would that feeling lead him to retire? Would Frank be fired by the mayor of New York City? Or, would something else happen? Even better, would Frank continue to be the commissioner of the NYPD when the 12th season comes to an end?

No definitive answers to these questions – and others – have been answered during the first two episodes of the 12th season of “Blue Bloods.”

However, in a promotional video shared by the show via Twitter on its account on Monday, Oct. 11, Frank Reagan will be faced with a choice that could change his life. And, if we know anything about the history of the Reagan family, that choice could change the lives of his children and his grandchildren.

“Frank has a big decision to make. New #BlueBloods FRIDAY,” the tweet shared on Monday said. It also included clips from what is presumed to be the Oct. 15 episode of the popular drama.

Also, the first voice heard in this preview clip is that of Frank Reagan. “I’ve been offered a job,” Frank says.

Henry Reagan Chimes In On Decision to be Made By Frank Reagan During Upcoming Episode of ‘Blue Bloods’

The next voice you will hear in the clip is that of Henry Reagan (Len Cariou). As fans of the show are aware, Henry is Frank’s father. He is also a retired NYPD commissioner. So, it’s safe to say that pretty much more than anyone else, Henry knows the burdens his son has carried during this tenure as police commissioner.

And based on the clip, it appears that Henry is encouraging Frank to focus on himself as he makes his decision whether or not he should leave his home at the NYPD. “You have done right by our city,” Henry says in the clip. “Now you’d like a little something for yourself.”

As Henry speaks, the preview clip cuts to footage of Frank’s children – son Jamie (Will Estes) and his wife, Eddie (Vanessa Ray), daughter Erin (Bridget Moynahan), and son Danny (Donnie Wahlberg).

This preview clip raises so many questions. Will Frank decide to leave his top post at the New York Police Department? If so, what factors will lead him to step down? If not, what factors will keep him at the post he has held since the popular drama first aired in 2010?

Also, regardless of what decision Frank makes there will most likely be fallout. If so, how will that fall impact his family and the tens of thousands of officers of the New York City Police Department?

Only time – well “Blue Bloods” episodes – will tell.
