‘Blue Bloods’ Season 12, Episode 5: Full Recap

by Joe Rutland

It’s a busy Blue Bloods episode with Frank Reagan squaring off with the Archbishop while Jamie and Eddie are experiencing some tension.

That’s just for starters, though, in this episode titled “Good Intentions.” We’ll refer to an article from Celebrity Laundry to help fill in the blanks.

Why is Jamie, played by Will Estes, and Eddie, played by Vanessa Ray, having some marital upsets? Eddie invited her father Armin, played by Michael Cullen, to live with them. He is just out of prison.

Danny, played by Donnie Wahlberg, and Baez, played by Marisa Ramirez, help an out-of-town man, played by Dave Quay, find his missing sister.

Like we said, Frank Reagan, played by Tom Selleck, chats with Archbishop Kearns, played by Stacy Keach. A priest wants NYPD defunded. This causes a lot of problems between the police force and the Catholic Church.

Danny sees David passing out flyers about his missing sister. He tells Danny that she’s not well and they have to find her.

‘Blue Bloods’ Episode Finds Eddie Giving Her Ex-Con Father A Place To Sleep

In Blue Bloods, Eddie finds out that her father is in a holding cell at the station.

We find Anthony down by the river, where he sees where a gun is found from an old case.

Abigail, played by Abigail Hawk, tells Frank that the archbishop is there to see him. Why? Because Father Mike MacDougal’s apartment was vandalized. Frank says someone probably cased him as an easy mark seeing that he spends most of his days outside the precinct with a bullhorn saying defund the police.

The Archbishop says he has a right to free speech and a 911 call. Frank laughs and the Archbishop says someone in NYPD leaked the tape.

Danny and Baez Find Angie, While David Later Proposes To Her On One Knee

Then, Danny and Baez find Angie, who says David is her ex-fiancé and he has been stalking her for months. So, Danny tells her they can take her to the squad room and get her an order of protection.

At Sunday dinner on Blue Bloods, the family finds out that Eddie’s father is living with them. Frank says that he is welcome.

Danny and Baez find Angie and David, who is proposing to her with a ring in one hand and a knife in the other. When she runs, Danny goes after David. David runs in traffic and gets run over.

Anthony looks into the case and he convicted the right woman. The Archbishop tells Frank that MacDougal is being transferred.
