'Blue Bloods' Hints at Fight That Could Tear Brothers Danny and Jamie Reagan Apart

Will they ever be able to get past this?

An overbearing sibling is bothersome enough—but a bossy brother who's also younger than you is beyond annoying. In a sneak peak for the new episode of Blue Bloods, Danny Reagan (Donnie Wahlberg) decides he's had enough of listening to Jamie Reagan's (Will Estes) commands—but disobeying orders might put people in danger.

In the upcoming installment, fittingly titled "My Brothers Keeper," Danny and Jamie are involved in a tense hostage negotiation. As a sergeant, Jamie has seniority over Danny, who's a detective. Although Jamie gives his brother strict instructions, to probably no one's surprise, the ever-so-difficult Danny doesn't listen. His stubbornness causes both problems within the operation and his own family.

Of course, that's not the only household drama going down. Nicky Reagan-Boyle (Sami Gayle) puts her mom, Erin Reagan (Bridget Moynahan) in a tough situation. The college student asks the Assistant District Attorney to help out a friend who's about to lose a scholarship over a crime he allegedly didn't commit. Erin has to decide if she should do her daughter a favor—and must determine if this guy is even innocent to begin with.

Police Commissioner Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) also finds himself in a difficult spot—but the usually hardened character is actually showing his softer side. A devastated police officer decides to hand over his badge to the boss after an unfortunate incident where a young girl was shot. Although the situation is sticky, Frank decides to help his subordinate out. Hopefully the decision won't come back to haunt him.
