'Blue Bloods' Season 11 Episode 3 Spoilers: Danny says his brother is getting investigated, is it because of Joe's secret?
A journalist found Joe's birth certificate and now everyone would find out that he is Frank Reagan's illegitimate grandson
Spoilers for ‘Blue Bloods’ Season 11 Episode 3
Episode 2 of ‘Blue Bloods’ Season 11 was packed with a lot of stuff. Danny Reagan (Donnie Wahlberg) and Jamie Reagan (Will Estes) combined forces and convicted a notorious drug lord. Erin Erin (Bridget Moynahan (Bridget Moynahan) nervously awaited the Governor’s selection for the new District Attorney and was ultimately disappointed. But Commissioner Francis ‘Frank’ Xavier Reagan (Tom Selleck) and Joe Hill (Will Hochman) had the main (but understated) plotline.
Joe comes into the spotlight after saving a young girl from getting kidnapped, even though he was off-duty Joe. All of a sudden, he became a hero and turned into the poster boy for the NYPD. And Frank wasn’t excited. But he was not the only one. Joe’s mom Paula Hill (Bonnie Sommerville) absolutely did not want his secret to come out as well.
What was the secret? The end of Season 10 revealed that Joe was Joe Reagan's unknown illegitimate son with Paula. Joe Sr had been killed by corrupt cops before the show's story began, and the Reagan family only found out about him accidentally. Thankfully, even Joe did not want this to come out. Joe came up to Frank later to tell him that he did not want to be NYPD’s poster boy. Journalists had started digging into his background and it would seem that he did not want his Reagan connection to come out at all.
But ultimately, things didn't work out at all. A journalist found Joe's birth certificate and the news was going to be out, later that night. So, what will happen next?
In the upcoming episode, Danny will exclaim how his saint of a brother was getting investigated. Now, the question is, which brother? Is it Jamie? Or is it Joe Sr? It would make sense for the latter to get investigated in light of the truth about Joe Hill being Frank’s grandson coming out.
It is, after all, a scandal of the newly famous New York hero who is found to be the illegitimate grandson of the police commissioner. And it would make sense to have an internal investigation to see if there was any nepotism at play. This is a joke, considering all the Reagans are in positions of power in New York law enforcement. Also, as Danny said, his brother is being investigated. And it's weird that a dead police officer would be looked into. But what really doesn’t make sense is Jamie getting investigated.
He’s a good cop. He plays by the rules, unlike Danny, and he mostly minds his own business. So, what on earth could have possibly happened? The Reagan family is going to have a rough season that’s for sure. Erin will have a new boss. And Danny, well, will just have usual Danny problems aside from the fact that he was threatened in Episode 1 by a mysterious killer. So, things sure are unlikely to get boring for a while, eh?
‘Blue Bloods’ Season 11 airs at 10 pm ET on CBS Network, every Friday.
