On tonight’s “Blue Bloods“ season 4, episode 9: “Bad Blood,” Danny and Baez investigate a homicide in which Baez’s estranged brother, a former drug addict, is the lead suspect. Meanwhile, Frank learns one of his most highly decorated officers, a German Shepherd in the K9 unit, is being accused of police brutality, and Henry investigates the widow of a former NYPD pal who might have had a hand in her husband’s death.
‘”Blue Bloods” is based on the Irish-American Reagan family of police officers, who are employed by the New York City Police Department. Francis “Frank” Reagan (Tom Selleck), who was a U.S. Marine and a Vietnam veteran before he joined the NYPD, is the police commissioner. He is a widower whose son Joe was killed in the line of duty. Now, he has three other adult children remaining, Danny, Erin, and Jamie.
Danny, played by Donnie Wahlberg, is a lead detective who holds a detective first grade ranking with the NYPD, but his hot head sometimes leads him to do things his way, and not by the book. Danny also went to the military- he too is a Marine veteran having served time in the Iraq War.
“Erin (Bridget Moynahan) is an assistant district attorney in Manhattan who prosecutes many of the criminals Danny busts. Jamie (Will Estes), Frank’s youngest child, is a recent graduate of Harvard Law School and is a fresh officer on the police force, having recently gone through commencement from the police academy.”
