"Blowback" is the twenty-second episode of the sixth season of Blue Bloods.


While Jamie and Eddie are responding to a call, Officer Russell becomes the center of a major controversy when he shoots a teen robbery suspect who advanced on him with a knife. Despite witness statements, the Officer's body camera, and his own statement match up proving justified force but the public is unhappy with the grand jury's acquittal.

When the body camera footage is released Frank tries to get Erin to help him prove that it was leaked from the Mayor's office. His suspicions stem from Mayor Poole's plans for a personal investigation into the incident.

Immediately after the footage is leaked, Officer Russel's partner, Officer Hayes, is shot and they suspect it is retaliation. Danny and Baez are assigned the case and although there is little evidence, they believe they have identified a suspect.
