Next, he appeared in the 2010 TV movie Nonna Tell Me a Story: Lidia’s Christmas Kitchen. He played the role of Ethan.

What happened last time on ‘Blue Bloods’

During Blue Bloods Season 11, Episode 5 (titled “Spilling Secrets”), Frank (Tom Selleck) and Henry (Len Cariou) are on shaky terms after Frank’s accountant tells him there seems to be something suspicious happening with Henry’s account. For at least more than a decade, Henry has been making payments to an unknown person. When Frank asks Henry about it, he gets irritated and tells him to back off.

Henry later confesses he had been making payments to a person he feels guilty about shooting. The person had to use a wheelchair after he was shot. The person he shot is dead now, but Henry continues to send money to his family. 

Blue Bloods airs on CBS Fridays at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
