The list of non-Reagans who have joined the family for Sunday dinner is small, but with the Season 12 finale of Blue Bloods, it is growing by one.
As the photos show, Anthony Abetemarco (Steven Schirripa), who works as an investigator at the D.A.’s office and frequently collaborates with Erin (Bridget Moynahan), has gotten that coveted invite in “Silver Linings Playbook,” which premieres on May 6. What will happen as a result of this? We’ll have to wait and see, but it’s not surprising to see Joe Hill (Will Hochman), the late Joe Reagan’s son and Frank’s (Tom Selleck) grandson, at the dinner, given that the logline reveals he’s working with his uncles, Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) and Jamie (Tom Selleck) (Will Estes).
Jamie and Joe’s search for an undocumented, trafficked teenage girl intersects with Danny and Baez’s (Marisa Ramirez) investigation into the murd3r of a woman in witness protection in the Season 12 finale. Also, Frank and Erin butt heads when he criticizes the district attorney’s office for instituting a new rule that classifies armed robbery as a misdemeanor, a mandate that has immediate consequences for Eddie (Vanessa Ray) and her partner.
Sunday dinner is usually limited to Reagan family members — blood relatives and those who have married into the family. Eddie’s first dinner, for example, was when she and Jamie announced their engagement. Erin’s ex-husband Jack (Peter Hermann) went to one (despite the fact that he didn’t have to because he didn’t lose the bet). Anthony joins Baez and Frank’s former partner Lenny among those who are not related to a Reagan by blood or marriage (Treat Williams).
