Frank goes into his office and meets with Agent Mills from homeland security and Chief Bell.
"What You See"
The scene opens with NYPD going up to an apartment of a Muslim and they tell him to freeze. At the Reagan’s home, Henry and Erin are getting ready to go for a picnic when Frank gets a call that he has to take. Danny gets a call as well and tells that he can’t joint Erin and Henry either. Frank is briefed that they have Steven Hassan in custody for a terrorist threat and he is the same man from earlier taken into custody. He is told that there was a computer made to a bridge and Frank thinks that the target is a bridge. He tells Frank that the car that has the explosive built inside is a dark SUV and the target city is Manhattan.
Frank goes into his office and meets with Agent Mills from homeland security and Chief Bell. They tell that they are searching SUVs and making sure that they’re no issues with that.

After a few leads, Danny and his new partner Jackie Curatola find their main suspect is Ricky Russo, the son of a famous old-school mob boss nicknamed “Happy Jack.”
"Officer Down"
To catch the killer of an off-duty cop, Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) used some of his usual strong-arm tactics, but it was Grandpa Henry (Len Cariou) who ran afoul of Commissioner Frank (Tom Selleck) this week, when he sought out an old crime rival for his help, one retired gentleman to another.

It was fun to see 'The Sopranos' Uncle Junior (Dominic Chianese) as an honorable thug who pressured his less-honorable son to do the right thing. This week also saw the introduction of Danny's new partner, played by Jennifer Esposito, who seemed a lot more tolerant of Danny's maverick ways than his former partner, wherever he went.

Jamie's fiancee Sydney still hadn't broken up with him, despite her fears that Jamie will be the next cop killed. In a nice scene, Danny's wife Linda (Amy Carlson) talked about how she manages to make it through each day as a cop's wife.

Jamie (Will Estes) wasn't around much in this episode, except to ask Danny about his Blue Templar pin. "What are you, a cop or a reporter?" Danny asked, before telling his younger brother, "It's nothing for a rookie to worry about."

Erin, Frank and Danny work together within the system to find justice when a rape case's primary suspect is protected by diplomatic immunity.
"Priviledge"
In this week's case, a series of sexual assaults on a college campus are traced back to an Argentine diplomat's son, whose father refuses to waive diplomatic immunity.

How the Reagans get around that diplomatic immunity and nail the jerk is impressive, and a commendable family effort. For once, everyone is on the same side. Everyone but Jamie's upper-class fiancé, that is.

Erin's usual "the law is there for a reason" dinner-table argument is taken up this week by Syd. She and Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) knock heads over whether diplomatic immunity is ever a good thing. Syd points out that immunity also protects Americans abroad. "World's a lot bigger than the five boroughs," she tells him. Danny says, "I'm sorry I didn't get to spend my junior year abroad, like you. I had my hands full in Fallujah."

That's the first time (correct me if I'm wrong) that we've heard Danny refer to being an Iraq War vet. We also find out that Frank served 30 years as a cop before becoming commissioner. No wonder these guys side with the working-class joes instead of the upper-class elite. The show itself comes down firmly on the side of the rape...

The Reagans weigh the rights and wrongs of vigilantism when a good Samaritan who has a police record takes action against a terrorizing subway criminal.
"Samaritan"
The second week into 'Blue Bloods,' it looks like the morality discussions over the Reagan dinner table are going to be a staple of the show.

In tonight's episode, grandpa Henry (Len Cariou) bemoans that they have to prosecute a good Samaritan who shot a member of a gang who was terrorizing the subway. "We can't choose which laws we enforce, Pop," acting police chief Frank (Tom Selleck) sighs.

Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) clearly falls in with his father and grandfather's way of thinking, while lawyer sis Erin (Bridget Moynihan) jumps down his throat when he points out that the illegally purchased gun was bought for self defense.

When Frank says that New York has a "zero tolerance policy" for gun crimes, everyone angrily asks, "Whose side are you on?"
Usually, it seems like Erin is the only one in "letter of the law" camp, and it's not a popular or particularly likable place to be. We learn this week that she's going through a divorce but it'll likely take a lot more than that to make her as relatable as Danny and Frank are, if just because of the fondness we have for the actors playing them.

Commissioner Frank Regan's son, Jamie Regan and the newly graduated recruits await in their seats.
"Pilot"
The scene opens with Commissioner Frank Regan getting ready for the graduation of his son, Jamie Regan. The newly graduated recruits march down to their seats and Frank gets up to talk to them. Meanwhile, a little girl is going home from school. Suddenly she is abducted by strangers in a white van. Frank comes out after congratulating the recruits and greats his children. They are all in law enforcement now. Officer Romano comes up and congratulates Jamie and says hello to his girlfriend, Sidney. Danny tells that he has to get going because he has a missing kid to find. He gets in the vehicle with his partner, Demarcus King, and they drive to the crime scene. Once there, Danny asks for the details. They tell that an eyewitness says that there was a little girl, Teresa Campos, who was kidnapped and a doll was left behind.
Frank talks to the media and they are a swarm of questions about the lack of police force normally when it comes to minorities. Frank dodges every bullet and eventually tells them to get the picture of Teresa everywhere and to run the story so that they have a better chance at finding her. Later in his office, the mayor enters Frank’s...

Blue Bloods (2010) the TV series Logo!!!
Blue Bloods
Is an American police procedural/drama series on CBS, filmed on location in New York City. The show premiered on September 24, 2010, with episodes airing on Fridays at 10/9c. In Entertainment Weekly's annual Fall TV Preview, Ken Tucker named Blue Bloods as one of the "5 Best New Shows" of 2010.

BLUE BLOODS is about a multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement. Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) is the New York Chief of Police and patriarch of the Reagan brood, which he heads as diplomatically as he does the force, even when dealing with the politics that plagued his unapologetically bold father, Henry (Len Cariou), during his stint as Chief. A source of pride and concern for Frank is his eldest son Danny (Donnie Wahlberg), a seasoned detective, family man and Iraqi War vet who on occasion uses dubious tactics to solve cases. The sole Reagan woman in the family, Erin (Bridget Moynahan), is a N.Y. Assistant D.A. and newly single parent, who also serves as the legal compass for her siblings and father. Jamie (Will Estes) is the youngest Reagan, fresh out of Harvard Law and the family's "golden boy." However,...
