"The Brave" is the twelfth episode of the eighth season of Blue Bloods.


After Anthony is shot while interviewing a witness for an upcoming murder trial, his rival, Danny, takes up the investigation. Erin feels responsible, a sentiment Anthony's ex-wife vehemently agrees with, although Danny points out she probably would have been shot as well had she gone with.

Also, Jamie and Eddie get in the middle of a standoff between a police Captain and a developmentally disabled man who stole a police car. When the Captain refuses to listen to what they have to say, Jamie takes action anyway, and the argument afterwards leads to suspension for both of them.

Meanwhile, Nicky prepares to take the police exam, a decision Erin is not so sure she approves of.
