"Occupational Hazards" is the seventeenth episode of the fifth season of Blue Bloods.


When she suspects that someone has been in her apartment, Erin calls 9-1-1 to report it. Later, obviously distracted, she is easily ambushed by Danny who is upset that she reported it to 9-1-1 instead of calling him. He begins looking into it, only for things to escalate when one of Erin’s coworkers is attacked at the offices after hours.

Meanwhile, Jamie and Eddie are surprised when a confused elderly woman leads them to a pipe bomb in a rented room of her apartment. Due to her mental state she believes Eddie is her long lost niece and can’t remember many details about the man who left the bomb but knows he had more bomb making materials.

Elsewhere, while having breakfast, Nicky and Frank are approached by a young man collecting donations for a Hero’s Fund that is using the NYPD logo. Nicky thinks it is great but Frank is suspicious, especially when the Fund’s manager admits she does not have the proper paperwork.
