"Excessive Force" is the fourth episode of the fifth season of Blue Bloods.


Danny chases a robbery suspect into a building, only to have the man throw himself out a window when cornered and then screaming that Danny pushed him out.

Immediately Reverend Darnell Potter starts a crusade to get Danny fired, amassing supporters, especially after the only witness moves away abruptly. Frank faces pressure from both sides on how to handle Danny's situation, as both Potter and Gormley express their opinions strongly.

Meanwhile, Jamie and Eddie deal with some friction in their partnership when Jamie goes on a date with a doctor and Eddie has a hard time hiding her jealousy.
