‘Blue Bloods’: Donnie Wahlberg Gave a Disclaimer for an Episode and Fans Are Still Upset

The Reagans don’t always get along on Blue Bloods. We often see these disagreements at family dinner, but it also happens when they work on cases.

Donnie Wahlberg warned fans that an episode might upset fans because of a family disagreement. Find out what he said and how fans reacted.

Donnie Wahlberg tweeted a disclaimer for the episode ‘Friends in High Places’

There were a few things teased before the episode “Friends in High Places.” One of them was that Dylan Walsh would be making his first appearance in Blue Bloods by playing the newly elected mayor, Peter Chase. He calls in Erin Reagan (Bridget Moynahan) to try to convince her to run for District Attorney.

Another story in the episode is that Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) and Henry (Len Cariou) will butt heads while working on the same case. The actor actually tweeted something to fans before it aired.

“I’m ready! Happy #BlueBloods Friday! (Disclaimer — Danny and Grandpa partner up tonight which may lead to a few arguments since they are both so stubborn. Please don’t blame me. I did not the write the script. Just hope for a peaceful resolution),” he tweeted.

Some fans replied to his disclaimer. One tweeted, “I love how you have the disclaimer that you didn’t write it. Makes me think it’s intense. We’ll just imagine how much you loved on him after they yelled Cut” and it’ll be ok. we know Danny loves Pops, besides where do ya think that stubbornness came from.” So what happened between the two characters?

Danny was called in when a woman claimed her husband came over screaming and crying after she served him with divorce papers. She claimed he said, “There’s no way he’d ever let me tear our family apart.”

Henry was the investigative consultant to the case. He believed the father was coming from a good place, but Danny felt differently.

Things only got scarier with him showing up and shouting at her again. Eventually, she got an order of protection. Danny still thought the father was dangerous while Henry didn’t. In the end, the mother called because the father and son went missing.

Henry was able to track down the father and son at a hockey game. “Sometimes there is no bad guy,” the grandfather told Danny. “I should’ve listened to you. I’m sorry I didn’t,” admitted Danny.

Fans don’t agree with Henry

Some fans were left with questions after the episode. One person tweeted, “So? A restraining order is only valid and should only be enforced if Grandpa Reagan decides it should? I’m guessing mom would have a valid complaint against Danny for failing to enforce the order. Is Grandpa Reagan to new Left voice to replace Nikki [sic]?”

Another fan tweeted, “I did not agree with Henry at all. The father has issues and was way out of line. He kidnapped his own son and all is just … forgiven cause he didn’t actually hurt him? Yeah, no. What if next time he takes him out of state or the country to keep him? Poor judgment.”

Other fans started blaming the writing for the storyline. One fan tweeted, “Henry’s behavior was way out of character. Since when did he become a bleeding heart? And Danny apologized. Should have been the other way around.”

Henry does usually take a hard stance against those who break the law. We will have to wait and see if his character has really changed or if he just had a soft spot for the father in this episode.
