She closes the door and tells Anthony about her meeting with Mayor elect Chase. She feels there is 100 reasons this is a bad idea, but he feels she would make a kick ass DA. She thinks the office will be turned upside down if she puts her hat in the ring. The boss will come after her with both barrels and will have everyone against her in the office; she wonders if she has what it takes to beat him and it’s the hard way!

Jamie is reading the report of Brandon’s arrest, he feels something isn’t right with the vial of drugs in plain sight in the back seat. Eddie says she only saw her partner pull out the drugs and then the revolver from under the seat. Jamie asks her to imagine if it was him and her as partners, was there something else she would have seen. He reminds her that he may have to call IAB on this case; which frustrates her because it will jam her up and allow a perp to walk. Jamie insists he cannot look the other way on this.

Se didn’t want him to fight out like that but Warren gets aggressive and the officers are forced to handcuff Warren in front of his son. Henry stays with Karen and her son while Warren is hauled away.
Danny confronts Warren who couldn’t leave things alone. Warren begs him to put himself in his place, as Karen wants to take his son across the country; Danny tells him he doesn’t know what as they would have to go to court and the judge would have to allow that.

Blue Bloods Season 10 Episode 8 ‘Friends in High Places’ Recap Part 2
Frank finds out that the FDNY and the NYPD had another incident, using snide remarks but both sides were able to stop it before anything became physical but not before several cellphones were able to catch it on video. He feels the FDNY Commissioner, rightly so, has a chip on his shoulder because people instantly know the Police Commissioner’s name but have no idea who he is. Frank says they are going to do something this thing between them before it spills out onto the streets. Sid defends their guy but Frank says he has nothing for him, other than taking one for the team.
Eddie and Jamie argue over what Troy did. Jamie feels he is in the right for reporting it while Eddie says she repeated only what she saw and that was nothing. She feels like she is going to look like a rat and if Troy loses his shield over this, she is the one who will face the brunt of it from the guys at the precinct.
Erin comes to the house to see her father making Frank wonder if everything is alright; he already knows that she was propositioned for the position of DA. Erin wanted to come to him about it right away but felt this was a decision she had to make on her own. He respects that as she wanted this her whole life and it is past time Manhattan had a female DA. He reminds her that this will definitely turn up the heat when it comes to the rest of the family. She understands the scrutiny will go through the roof if she runs for public office, even though the family is used to being in the public eye; this will be a whole new level of publicity for all of them.
Everyone at family dinner is thrilled for Erin, although she admits she hasn’t made a final decision. She reminds them it will be a complicated decision for all of them, with folks poking their noses where it doesn’t belong; not just the press but the opposition who will dig deep and investigate everything that everyone does that can surface out of nowhere. She wants to know if they are all on board and if there is anything they need her to know before she takes on the job. Everyone says their issues but Danny reminds them that he may have stepped over the line while he was on the job once or twice. Henry chooses to take the fifth. Frank says if these are the only skeletons in the closet than she is good to go as Erin thanks everyone.
Henry is still furious with Danny, who finally confronts Pops on his attitude and why he has become such a bleeding heart. Henry says domestic violence cases have to be dealt with cautiously. Henry feels if Warren goes back to jail it could do some real damage to his son. Henry wishes he kept his glory day stories away from Danny because of the way they affected him; both choose to ride solo on the Davis case from here on out.
Karen arrives at the precinct, visibly upset. She reveals that she came to pick up Andrew from soccer practice but the coach revealed that Warren had already picked him up; obviously unaware of the order of protection. He has another officer take her complaint as he goes to search for Warren. Henry hears, saying if Danny didn’t treat him like a perp, Warren wouldn’t act like one. Henry knows where they are, but reminds Danny that he said they were going to do this solo; Danny offers to drive.
Sam questions Erin about anything and everything; reminding her she cannot prevent surprises, she can only anticipate them. He warns her that with the business her family is in, there is definitely things that will pop up. Sam feels she is looking for an excuse to not run for the position.
Troy comes to see Jamie, saying the IAB is just part of the job. He walks with him, telling Troy he doesn’t know when to hang it up and he doesn’t seem like that kind of guy. Jamie says he has seen many seasoned cops who have planted evidence just to land a perp and jamming up their partners in the process. Jamie says anyone could have looked at the collar, they will notice something is off and both him and Eddie would be to blame; but he feels everything is justified because Phelps killed at least 2 people. Jamie tells him that doesn’t justify what he did and IAB is going to take his shield for it, but the other way out is him putting his papers. He refuses as Jamie explains then IAB will take his shield and he won’t get pension, losing his reputation with it. Troy is given enough time to get to the door to make up his mind but agrees to put his papers in by the end of the day.
At Madison Square Gardens, Warren is watching a hockey game with his son, Andrew. Danny admits Henry was right with all his touchy feely stuff and calls Karen to let her know they are okay. Henry reminds Danny that sometimes there is no bad guy, so Danny apologizes. He is forced to buy hotdogs, beer and more food for Henry as an apology.
Eddie comes home, informing Jamie that Troy put in his papers, but she wants to know how he did it. Jamie says he laid out the facts and left Troy to make the final decision. She knows it was a tough choice all the way around. She knows that he only did what he thought was right, but he feels that wasn’t good enough when it comes to her. He is sorry he messed up but she says in the end, he had her back like he always does. She never doubted that she came first to him and hugs him tightly.
Mayor Elect Chase comes to see Erin, after he saw the DA who says he is not a politician. He shares a family photo, informing her that his interest in her is nothing more than colleagues as he is happily married with two children. He knows it is important to get that out in the open and she believes him. She doesn’t have a decision and he doesn’t have a deadline. She reveals that she knows he is playing two other people for the DA position. He likes her the best for the role and says the people he believes in he doesn’t pave the way; he will put as many obstacles in her way to see if she can hack it.
The FDNY Commissioner is having a celebration, hoping the judge will go easy on him. Frank and the NYPD arrive as Frank apologizes for crashing the party, and introduces him to Officer Bruce Cirelli, someone he knows well. The officer asks him to accept his apology for over reacting and Frank informs him that the NYPD is dropping the charges and he can ignore the summons; sorry that he felt disrespected by the NYPD. Sid presents him with a birthday card that has Frank’s personal number for him to call at any time. He jokes for him not to share the number with all his men as he doesn’t want to get woken up 10 times a night; the two commissioners shake hands in laughter.
