‘Blue Bloods’ Recap: ‘Worst Case Scenario’
“Blue Bloods” Season 6 Episode 1 “Worst Case Scenario” aired last Friday, September 25, 2015 at 10:00 PM on CBS. In this episode, the Reagans, after a series of bombing attacks in different cities around the world, are placed in the fore front after Officer Jamie Regan (Will Estes) gets a tip about a potential threat from a strip club waitress; and after Detective Danny Reagan (Donnie Wahlberg) gets a tip from an Afghan whose tenants were building bombs. Meanwhile, Police Commissioner Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) is placed in the precarious position of deciding whether to sanction an attack on suspects even though they do not know the entire picture yet. Read on to learn more about this episode.
The episode began with Police Commissioner Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) beginning to worry if New York will be attacked next due to the fact that Tel Aviv had just been bombed by suicide bombers.
Later that night, Officers Jamie Reagan (Will Estes) and Eddie Janko (Vanessa Ray) received a tip from a strip club waitress as there was a customer earlier that night who said several phrases that initially made her wary.
Eddie was reluctant to believe that she was a reliable witness, but they managed to identify him based on some security camera footage, even though a baseball cap blurred most of his face. The waitress, Lacey Chambers (Meghann Fahy) told them that the man’s name was Stas (Mark Badaczewski).
The next morning, while Detective Danny Reagan (Donnie Wahlberg) and Detective Maria Baez (Marisa Ramirez) were getting coffee at a park, they managed to overhear a man named Naseem Akhtar (Yair Ben-Dor), who was talking in his native language about a bomb.
Danny then handled him like a suspect until Barry Hamidi (Ramin Karimloo), a professor, came in to translate. He then told them that Naseem knew of a plot to detonate three bombs in the city.
All of this, from Jamie’s tip to Danny’s tip, was reported by Deputy Commissioner of Public Information Garrett Moore (Gregory Jbara) to Frank that morning.
Naseem, with Barry translating, then related how he had noticed that his three new tenants had been bringing in bomb materials, and saw them when he went inside their room to fix a leak.
Frank then had Stas’ picture run through the Canadian database, and then learned that London and Bangladesh had just been bombed.
Danny, suspicious of Naseem the entire time, then showed him the picture of Stas, which he recognized.
They then set up shop across Naseem’s building, and Danny ignored Baez’s remarks on how he shouldn’t generalize every Muslim as a terrorist.
Meanwhile, while waiting for Frank’s orders, Frank consulted his daughter, Assistant District Attorney Erin Reagan (Bridget Moynahan) about storming Naseem’s building, because if they ended up killing innocents and not terrorists, he would receive a lot of backlash. They then raided the building, and found two bombs that hadn’t been detonated yet.
As one of the men, Samir Fayad (Kario Pereira-Bailey) was barely alive, Danny decided to call an ambulance for him, and later, in the hospital, threatened to pull the plug on him, as Samir was now reliant on the machine to live, if he didn’t tell Danny where the third bomb was.
Afterwards, they discovered that Frank was right about Stas that he had entered the United States through Canada. He then encouraged Jamie to try talking to Lacey again so that they could figure out some more about Stas.
After talking to her, they realized that he worked at an event place called Cipriano which was located on Wall Street.
Danny and Baez, on Jamie’s tip, rushed over there, and discovered that Stas was setting up the bomb on the second floor, and found the manager dead.
Danny then recklessly slammed into Stas, who had been setting up the bomb, and after a grueling fight, managed to shoot him dead.
Later, during the press conference, Frank denied that there had been an attempted terrorist attack, and instead, tried to give some words of comfort to the families of the victims of the Bangladesh, Tel Aviv and London bombings.
That Sunday, during dinner, the adults talked about the saying that “Ignorance is bliss,” and that “what you don’t know won’t hurt you.”
The adults didn’t talk about what had happened, but instead kept it to themselves.
