by Joe Rutland

NYPD Commissioner Frank Reagan and New York City’s mayor clash as “Blue Bloods” breaks out its second episode of Season 12 on Friday night.

In an episode titled “Times Like These,” Outsiders, we find Frank, played by Tom Selleck, having to deal with Mayor Peter Chase, played by Dylan Walsh. Why? Well, Frank made a public arrest and the situation turns viral. The situation arises when a man, who is washing windshields without permission, is caught stealing change out of people’s cars. Frank stops the man and has him arrested.

This is according to an article from Celebrity Laundry.

Frank gets back to his office and Garrett Moore, played by Gregory Jbara, and Sid Gormley, played by Robert Clohessy, talk it over with him. They say some of the public is not happy about it, including the mayor. Moore tells Frank that the mayor might see this as a personal insult and thinks he should reach out to the mayor.

Well, Frank says he doesn’t think an apology is worth something that the mayor imagined.

‘Blue Bloods’ Episode Has Danny, Baez On The Prowl To Investigate Gang Attack

Meanwhile, another “Blue Bloods” saga takes place. Detective Danny Reagan, played by Donnie Wahlberg, and Detective Maria Baez, played by Marisa Ramirez, go out to investigate a gang attack. But their investigation takes a rather unexpected turn.

Then we have trust issues going on between Sergeant Jamie Reagan, played by Will Estes, and his wife, Officer Eddie Janko-Reagan, played by Vanessa Ray. Jamie starts to worry when Eddie lies to him about her destination at night. This situation is resolved, though, within the episode.

But something is up with Assistant District Attorney Erin Reagan, played by Bridget Moynahan. Anthony Abetemarco, played by Steven R. Schirripa, is frustrated by Erin telling him they are dropping a case.

At dinner time at the Reagans, Erin and Jamie say Frank was playing chicken with the mayor.

Erin demands answers about what everyone knows and she doesn’t so Frank tells her to look under her placemat. Erin finds an envelope that has an election sign. It says, “Erin Reagan for Manhattan District Attorney.”
