"Friends in Need" is the seventeenth episode of the sixth season of Blue Bloods.


When Erin learns that Anthony's cousin Joey has been convincing cops to enter into bad investments, she starts investigating. Initially, Erin is concerned that Anthony's judgement will be clouded, but they continue to work the case and get a break when they meet the widow of Joey's former partner.

Meanwhile, Danny asks Jamie to mentor a rookie who is the son of a fallen Marine comrade. Reluctantly he agrees but finds the guy reckless and a liability both to other officers and the public.

Elsewhere, Frank meets with British Intelligence officials to discuss security policies, only to have one of them want too much information on NYPD tactics.
