"Friendship, Love, and Loyalty" is the eighteenth episode of the eighth season of Blue Bloods.


After a woman voices her outrage regarding the NYPD’s inability to find her son’s murderer, Danny reexamines the case, upsetting the original detective, Erin, and Anthony, who didn’t pursue the case due to lack of evidence.

Meanwhile, Erin and her ex-husband, Jack, face off in court while Frank contends with an angry police force when Mayor Dutton fails to defend them at a press conference.
