”Blue Bloods”  Season 6 Episode 7 “The Bullitt Mustang” aired last Friday, October 16, 2015 at 9:00 PM on NBC. In this episode, the line between work and family became blurred for Assistant District Attorney Erin Reagan (Bridget Moynahan) after she was tasked to go after several beat cops, such as Officer Eddie Janko (Vanessa Ray) on the charges of something simple such as ticket fixing. Meanwhile, Detective Danny Reagan (Donnie Wahlberg) and Detective Maria Baez (Marisa Ramirez) investigated the disappearance of the 1968 Ford Mustang that Steve McQueen drove in the movie “Bullitt.” Read on to learn more about this episode.

Assistant District Attorney Erin Reagan’s (Bridget Moynahan) fortieth birthday didn’t go as well as she wanted it to be, especially after instead of going after a corrupt cop whom they had had wired, the Acting District Attorney tasked her to be the public face of the office in a case against beat cops such as Officer Eddie Janko (Vanessa Ray), who were being charged of doing something as squashing some parking tickets now and then.


Erin, after considering it, decided to take on the case as this would also mean that her colleagues would see her as someone who didn’t go soft on cops as her entire family is in the business of becoming cops.

This of course meant that she had to address the public in a press conference, much to Police Commissioner Frank Reagan’s (Tom Selleck) chagrin.

Later on, the two argued, as Erin didn’t see things his way, and forgot to bring the birthday present that he had prepared for her.

Meanwhile, Eddie confessed to Officer Jamie Reagan (Will Estes) that she had squashed some parking tickets for an elderly lady who couldn’t afford to pay the tickets.

Jamie and Eddie then dosed out a little payback by ticketing a judge who was the uncle of the Acting District Attorney as he did miss a stop sign.


Later on, Frank told the officers in Jamie’s squad that they really shouldn’t squash tickets for anyone in the future, and called Erin over to begin discussing the case files to see if they could come to an understanding which the District Attorney would be okay with, while teaching Erin the lesson that what she had done had affected the family business and the family, and that next time, she should always remember that family comes first.

While Jamie, Frank and Erin got embroiled in that messy situation, Detective Danny Reagan (Donnie Wahlberg) and Detective Maria Baez (Marisa Ramirez) investigated the disappearance of a 1968 Ford Mustang that Steve McQueen drove in the movie “Bullitt,” which Danny declared, the best car chase ever done on film, which belonged to the family of Owen Cairo (Anthony Edwards), who suspected his wife, Sybil Cairo (Michelle Veintimilla) as he suspected her of having an affair.

Later, after questioning her, they discovered that she had liked to her husband that she would be on vacation, as she had some work done on her body for Owen, as she did love him very much.

The pair then set about calling everyone who had ridden in the car, and while doing this, a car fence named Sam Guttman (Ivan Martin) approached Baez.

Later, while tending to a frantic Sybil, who reported that Owen had gone missing, and that his mother was worried that Owen would try to sell the car as he was currently broke, Baez got a call that the car would be at the dock that night.

There, they discovered Guttman, who had the other car from the car chase, and later discovered that Owen had been trying to sell his car for money.

However, he was arrested as it turned out that he had reported it missing in order to get double on the insurance for the car, but this backfired on him as the car that he had was actually a fake, and only his mother knew where the real one was.

Later, after promising to speak well of Owen during his trial, Danny, Frank, Henry Reagan (Len Cariou) and Jamie were able to get a look at the Mustang, and had a picture with it.
