Blue Bloods begins tonight with Jamie Reagan (Will Estes) coming out of the CO’s office revealing to Eddie Janko (Vanessa Ray) that he is being transferred to the 2-9. Jamie wants to get the lay of the land before she puts in for a transfer to be in the same station as him; he says his father, Police Commissioner Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) will say his peace but at the end of the day, it will be their decision because that is how his family works; she isn’t so convinced but she likes how he looks in stripes.

Erin Reagan (Bridget Moynahan) and Anthony Abetemarco (Steve Schirripa) try to convince Cara Simpson (Jenna Williams) to testify against Billy Conroy, who keeps getting away with abusing her. Meanwhile, Danny Reagan (Donnie Wahlberg) and partner Maria Baez (Marisa Ramirez) are summoned by Sid Gormley (Robert Clohessy), their former Sergeant.

He wants to talk to them about former NYPD Detective Ray Cross, informing them he got jammed up and they’ve been receiving threats, normally others would handle this but this morning he was spotted outside the hotel where Danny’s dad was having breakfast. Danny knows Frank wouldn’t want to use manpower on his own safety, so Gormley is telling them to rattle Cross’ cage quietly.

Kelly Peterson (Bebe Neuwirth) comes to see Frank, revealing a new attorney, Paula Thompson in her office was sexually assaulted on a blind date. She wants Frank to review the case and the investigating Dt. Anthony Palmer, who made her feel like she was the suspect. Frank tries not to take sides as she feels asking such questions would be adding insult to injury; he promises to look into it. She lets him know Paula plans to sue the NYPD, but she is hoping to prevent it, as is he.

Danny and Baez find Ray Cross at a construction site and he immediately says he has nothing to do with the emails. When asked, he says he was by the restaurant because his favorite shoe store is next door and has a receipt to prove he was there buying loafers. He tries to convince them they don’t have a problem and even asks Danny to say “Hello” to his old man.

Erin and Anthony talk to ADA Martin Richardson (Justin Walker White) about the assault case he handled against Billy Conroy, 7 months earlier. She wants to know why he didn’t indict and tells him to walk her through it when he says it was complicated. He informs her that he was told to “back off” and rather not say who told him so because the person who said it is now dead. Erin is shocked they are talking about Monica Graham and what happened was not justice.

Sid and Frank bring in Detective Palmer who insists he was only following protocol. Frank wants to know if it the protocol or the detective himself and what is the reason he interviewed the victim three times and only the suspect once. He explains that sometimes multiple interviews are required to get all the facts from emotionally distressed victims. He doesn’t feel she was asking for any special treatment though and it was strictly by the book; Frank dismisses him.

Jamie meets his new boss, who wants him to put the fear of God into the station; Sergeant Reagan wants to earn their trust but he is told the house is on fire, hose it down and take it from there!

Danny and Baez are down at the waterfront where Ray Cross is brought to them by other officers and given his loaded weapon. Baez asks him if he really expects them to believe him being in the vicinity of the Police Commissioner for the second time in one day as a coincidence? He says its a free country and is more than willing to come in for questioning.

In interrogation, they confront him about the operation he ran where drug money went missing, and he should be grateful the PC let him retire with a pension, instead of firing him. Danny advises him to be smart and leave it there. Ray asks him about loyalty and says his task force broke some of the biggest cases but also took the most casualties and if the money ended up in the pockets of their loved ones, he can live with that.

When Baez asks if that is what happens, he pretends he has no idea what she is talking about. Danny says his father mourns the loss of every officer, but Ray says the speeches are great, its what happens after everyone leaves is what matters. Danny tells him the bottom line is if Ray wants to get to the PC, he will have to get through him first! He orders him to stay away from Frank Reagan.

Jamie gathers all the officers of the 2-9 and orders them all to fall in line according to rank for inspection. He orders them to have their hats on, another he orders to remove her red nail polish as this is not junior prom. One has a hand tattoo and he is to never see it again as he was hired in 2008. He uses Officer Jordan (Maxwell Whittington-Cooper) as an example of how they are to look every day.

He takes the podium and introduces himself, saying he is their new boss; telling them if they pay him respect, he will give it back with interest; but if they give him grief, they won’t know what hit them. When no one has any questions for him, he proceeds with daily business.

Erin questions why Monica would allow a serial abuser off; when Anthony says they will never know, she says that is not good enough. If Monica had a legitimate reason, then she isn’t staining her reputation, but if there isn’t a good reason, she needs to know why she didn’t prosecute.

Frank and Kelly continue to debate the “he said-she said” situation over how Dt. Palmer conducted the sexual assault of Paula Thompson, but they are interrupted by Abigail Baker (Abigail Hawk) who says his detail is waiting and he is 15-minutes behind. Before she leaves, Kelly admits that a man can be a good SVU detective, but he definitely starts with one hell of a disadvantage, simply because he isn’t a woman!

Danny knows it’s only a matter of time before Ray Cross tries to do something again, suggesting his grandfather, Henry Reagan (Len Cariou) had it right when they used to handle it “in house”. Baez is shocked he would suggest beating Cross, but Danny says they are not dealing with a usual perp and knows the PC’s every move. Danny thinks of another idea, using computers.

Anthony calls Erin, saying Monica’s boss, Chief Assistant Whitney had contact with Billy Conroy. Monica gave him a pass on Whitney’s orders because he was a backstabbing weasel; how else did he get the box seats? Anthony hopes Erin has the same sense to not cross Whitney.

The following day, Erin and Anthony meet with Billy Conroy who admits it wasn’t his intention to frighten Cara, saying they had an argument but he did not hit her. Erin tells his attorney that he is a serial abuser and this is not going to happen again. She continues, saying Ms. Cara Simpson has been reluctant to testify but she intends to change her mind but she can be very persuasive. Erin has a deal but it will expire the moment they leave the room.

He will plea to assault in the 3rd degree, agrees to counsel and complete a batterer’s program, but if he refuses she will charge him with assault 2 and make sure it is a very public trial. He declines her offer as Billy tells her to give his best to Cara. Anthony doesn’t like that he called her bluff but Erin is sure the game isn’t over. Chief Whitney wants to know how things went with Conroy, saying he summers with Conroy all the time and says he wants to know when his Bureau Chief digs up old cases. He says they can set up lunch so they can review the policies so they don’t get off on the wrong foot.

Dt. Palmer interviews Dt. Baker, thinking she is a sexual assault victim. He tells her how tricky it is even though she tells him repeatedly that she told her rapist that she said, “No.” He says its harder to convict when so many other times it has been yes. When she asks if he is telling her that she should let him get away with it? His answer is that it is up to her and the fact is, he probably will. He offers her a drink and she tells him she has everything she needs.

Back at the 2-9 a couple officers are physically beating each other up in the locker room before Jamie breaks them up. When no one speaks up, he says everyone who was watching, as well as those fighting, are all getting written up. He calls Jordan back, saying he is the only officer in the 2-9 who doesn’t have a black mark against him. He says he would like to tell him what happened but there is a code in the 2-9, that there is no ratting to the bosses. Jamie says this is the NYPD, not Rykers but Jordan says he’d rather get dinged than be labeled a snitch.

At family dinner, they enjoy Eddie’s lasagna. Halfway through the meal, Danny says he thinks its time they call a “Code Blue”. Pops agrees, feeling it would happen sooner or later. Eddie wants to know what that means, and Erin informs her that it means its time to talk about their wedding. They talk about the church and reception and how massive it will be, and how Eddie will look so beautiful in their mom’s wedding dress with the really long train.

Eddie shouts for them to stop, as this is her and Jamie’s wedding and their only job is to show up and have a blast and if anyone can’t live with that, she will send them pictures. Everyone claps as Frank tell her “Good for you;” revealing that is a Reagan tradition; it may not be their kindest, but everyone who marries into the family is always on their best behavior so they find a sensitive topic and bust their chops until their head explodes. Pops laughs saying her tantrum was way better than Linda’s and Jack’s. She punches Jamie who says he was sworn on secrecy, Frank says she is part of this family now. She asks Frank if he doesn’t care that she can’t cook, as long as she can fight. He nods his head with a resounding yes. They all raise their glasses welcoming her to the family.

Erin talks to her dad about underestimating the politics at her job and Whitney allowing one of VIP pals walk away from an open and shut assault charge. Frank discourages her from doing anything, saying if Monica was a white guy instead of a black woman, would Whitney have bullied her the same way; Erin doesn’t think so. It seems Frank’s talk with Kelly and Abigail has been very enlightening.

Garrett Moore (Gregory Jbara) finds Ronnie (Jordan Bolden) who is responsible for the PC’s press avails. Danny and Baez stop him from sending anything else out, asking if he sends the PC’s schedule to his private email; he admits he does in case he can’t find his work phone. Danny reveals they have reason to believe his personal email has been hacked.

Jamie talks to his boss, who says all the participants and onlookers are being transferred out as of that day. He reveals that all the transfers Jamie requested from his old precinct have been approved and hopes that will change the culture there, everyone except Officer Janko, but no explanation why. Jamie is able to keep Officer Jordan at 2-9.

Samar Charwell (Aasif Mandvi) comes to see Erin, who wants to discuss Billy Conroy’s assault on Cara Simpson. She reveals she has evidence that someone interceded on his behave to evade conviction and she initially thought it was Monica, refusing to stay silent, but not naming names. He knows that this person will do a lot of damage on the way out and she is willing to do this alone; he is okay with her proceeding.

A barber shop is secured by NYPD, and they say the PC is inside getting a haircut. Ronnie sneaks in with a hoodie, and when he pulls a gun out, Danny shoots him.

Jamie meets Eddie at the bar, revealing he asked for specific officers to be transferred to the 2-9 and she was one of them. She confesses that she asked to not be transferred, and his dad is right about them not working together. She worked hard to be a good cop; its something she did on her own and she doesn’t want to lose that. She fell in love with Jamie as her partner, lover and best friend but the Reagan part she will need some distance from as she doesn’t want to disappear. He says judging from the way she handled the “Code Blue” she will be just fine. She smiles, saying she kind of destroyed all of them. He loves her so much.

Danny watches over a handcuffed Ronnie, who remains unconscious. Ray Cross comes to the hospital, telling Danny that the first year on task force they found an 8-yr-old kid in pajamas in the closet, that he kind of adopted. He raised him really well and told Ronnie he was letting his vendetta against Frank go, but Ronnie must have felt he owed him still and now it cost Ronnie everything. Ray wants to see him and Danny says he can, but not to do anything crazy.

Abigail sits with both Frank and Kelly confirming that she believes Paula’s story, but is not allowed to reveal how she came to the opposite conclusion. Frank says he will personally tell Paula the news and apologize. Kelly thanks them both and tells Frank this is a good start. When Kelly leaves, he says he is not going to transfer all his good, specially trained detectives because of their gender, but he can create a panel to assess SVU protocol and recommend improvements and he wants Abigail to sit on it. He tells her she did good police work for a girl!

The End!
