“Blue Bloods” Season 6 Episode 3 “All the News that’s Fit to Click’” aired last Friday, October 9, 2015 at 10:00 PM on CBS. In this episode, what was supposed to be a routine ride-along of a reporter with a couple of police officers turned south after the reporter, Lorenzo Colt (Zachary Booth), who injured during a shooting, quickly turned the tables to his advantage as a reporter. Meanwhile, Linda Reagan’s (Amy Carlson) agitation and anxiety, which she had been experiencing ever since she got shot became worse and worse. Also, Police Commissioner Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) and Deputy Commissioner of Public Information Garrett Moore (Gregory Jbara) had a slight disagreement with each other, especially as Garrett felt responsible for what had happened to Colt. Read on to learn more about this episode.
The episode began with Police Commissioner Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) disagreeing with Deputy Commissioner of Public Information Garrett Moore (Gregory Jbara) over the fact that he had chosen a pretty young and inexperienced reporter to go on the ride-along with a couple of officers. In turn, Garrett felt that Frank had assigned the ride-along to Officer Jaimie Reagan (Will Estes) and Officer Eddie Janko (Vanessa Ray) as he didn’t trust Garrett’s judgement.

However, it turned out that Frank’s misgivings were well founded after Jaimie and Eddie responded to a 911 call regarding shots fired at an apartment, which turned out to be a prank call, as the caller ended up shooting the reporter, Lorenzo Colt (Zachary Booth), thinking that he was a cop.
Colt managed to survive, as he had been wearing a bullet proof vest, and was only grazed in the neck, but refused to cooperate with Detective Danny Reagan (Donnie Wahlberg), Detective Maria Baez (Marisa Ramirez) and Jaimie and Eddie.
Meanwhile, Garrett, who felt like the entire debacle was his fault, was offered a job at a prestigious university, whose head of council was Frank’s friend. However, it turned out the Frank had known about this, as his friend had given him a heads up first.
Maria and Danny discovered the burner phone used by the suspect, and discovered that Colt had withheld information regarding the suspect, so that he could break the story first.
After learning that his sister wouldn’t help him, Maria managed to discover that the suspect, Michael Hicks (J. Bernard Calloway) did have a long history of violence against the police, and the two managed to bring him in after setting him up.
However, as they didn’t have any clear evidence against him, especially as Colt seemed to not recognized Hicks as his shooter, Hicks was able to walk free, much to the chagrin of Jaimie and Danny, which they both expressed during Sunday dinner.
However, Linda Reagan (Amy Carlson) surprised everyone by asking them to stop talking about crime for once on the table as she was still agitated for her own shooting incident.
Afterwards, they were informed by Frank that Colt had been killed.
Thanks to his spy glasses, which had a camera on it, they were able to see that he had contacted Hicks in order to interview him, but instead, as Hicks had gotten annoyed at him, had gotten thrown off the building instead.
Afterwards, Garrett confronted Frank, who later on admitted that he wanted and needed Garrett to stay on with him and gave him as much as a raise he could give him, as they were both civil servants.
Meanwhile, Linda promised her husband that she would get better soon.
