On tonight’s Blue Bloods season 6 finale, the public is outraged when an officer isn’t indicted on charges in a shooting involving a teenager. Later on Blue Bloods 2016, an officer is shot in a possible case of retaliation and Danny is on the hunt for the shooter. If you missed last week’s episode of Blue Bloods season 6, check out my Blue Bloods 2016 recap right here to get caught up! Tonight’s Blue Bloods season 6 finale started off with Eddy, Jamie and another officer chasing two robbery suspects. Eddy and Jamie catch one of them and find a gold chain on him when they go to arrest him, then they heard a gun shot from a distance. Jamie and Eddy run to find that the other officer, Officer Russell, shot the other suspect and witnesses are yelling that the suspect had his hands up and that Russell didn’t have to shoot him.
Later, Frank is talking to the Mayor and they are watching the body camera footage and it shows that the suspect did have his hands up in the air, but he wasn’t dropping the knife he was carrying. It also seemed like the suspect didn’t speak English because he was speaking to the officer in Spanish. The suspect that was shot was only 17 years old and the Mayor is beyond upset by the officer’s actions because he feels like they were excessive.
Erin is working on sealing the video to avoid backlash from the public, but Erin and the DA think that he used proper force. Later, Officer Russell appears in front of the Grand Jury and they decide not to indict him on any charges. Frank is worried that there is going to be backlash and then Garrett comes in and tells Frank that the video footage from Russell’s body cam was leaked. The mayor is doing a news conference and starts pouring gasoline on the fire by announcing that there will be an independent investigation.
Later that night, Eddy and Jamie are on patrol when a call comes through about a disturbance and Jamie offers backup, but he is told that they don’t need backup. Moments later, you hear shots and screaming and the officer calling for backup and calling 10-13 over the radio, Officer Down. Jamie and Eddy get there and Eddy is assisting with putting pressure on the gunshot wounds and Jamie is asking everyone if they saw something or know which way the shooter went, but nobody is talking.
Later we find out that Officer Hayes, the officer that was shot, is out of surgery and when asked, Frank said that it looks like the officers were targeted because they were police officers. He also added that the investigation is ongoing and information would be released when it’s available. Later Frank is talking to Erin and he tells her that he thinks that the mayor is the source of the leaked video and she agrees.
Meanwhile, Danny and Baez get a lead on the shooter and when they spot him, he runs. Danny chases him into a building and he runs right into a dead end, Danny tells him to put his hands up and he does. The suspect is running his mouth, telling Danny to kill him like he killed that other kid and he said that he supposes he could, but that would get him out of a life sentence.
They get him back to the precinct and into an interrogation room and he tells them that he has nothing to say to them. Danny tells him that a man matching his description was seen fleeing the area where a cop was shot and moments later, the suspect, Miguel Santana, asks for a lawyer. Unfortunately, without a confession, they have nothing on Santana and Erin makes that known to Danny when he leaves the interrogation room.
Later at the dinner table, Erin finds herself being attacked by her family of cops because she can’t do anything to charge Santana with shooting the officer. Nicky sticks up for her and when Danny starts jumping down her throat, Linda jumps in. Dinner ends up very quiet after the heated debate, but afterwards, Frank apologizes to Erin for putting her in a spot. She does tell him that the leak didn’t come from the mayor’s office, it came from someone within the courthouse where the Grand Jury was impaneled.
Frank goes to see the Mayor and apologizes for saying that the Mayor was the source of the leak and the Mayor tells Frank that he feels like he is responsible for the shooting of Officer Hayes. He thinks that if he didn’t make that public announcement in regards to the Grand Jury failing to indict and how he was going to have a thorough investigation done, then Officer Hayes wouldn’t have been attacked for being a cop. He tells Frank that he doesn’t want Frank to resign because the next mayor is going to need his help. Mayor Poole has decided to resign from his position as Mayor.
Later, Danny and Baez have nothing because they don’t have any witnesses that will come forward and then TARU sends them a video from a taco place. In the video of Gabby, the daughter of a local newstand owner, is in the video and she looked right at the shooter. They bring her in and she is refusing to help them because she is worried about retaliation, if anyone thinks she snitched, they will go after him. Danny and Baez tell her that they will help protect her and her family and she points out the shooter, Santana.
At the DA’s office, they find that one of their own leaked the footage and she isn’t even sorry about what happened even though what she did lead up to an officer being shot. Frank goes to tell Poole that they have gotten a positive ID on Santana as the shooter of Officer Hayes, he also tells Poole that he doesn’t think that Poole should resign. He tells him that what really flipped the switch and caused Santana to shoot Officer Hayes was his criminal history and the leak of the body cam footage.
Poole tells him that there is still going to be an outcry about the double standard between Officers and ordinary citizens and he doesn’t think that he is the man that can talk the people off the ledge. Frank tells him that he is exactly the man for that job. Later, Frank, Henry, Jamie, Danny and Erin are at the house waiting to hear the statement from the mayor and he tells the public that they should remain calm and let the system work. He doesn’t announce his resignation from office either.
