What happened the week before on ‘Blue Bloods’
Frank (Tom Selleck) is alerted about a troubling development during Blue Bloods Season 11, Episode 6 (titled “The New Normal”). Keith Butler, a police captain at the 51st precinct, is allowing his subordinates to pretty much do whatever they want. They have no direction because he’s rarely there, and things are going downhill, fast. Frank’s team asks him to step in and assess the situation.
At first, Gormley (Robert Clohessy) is in Butler’s corner. However, Frank thinks the captain is doing a poor job. Gromley plays devil’s advocate by saying Butler demonstrates respect for his officers by delegating authority.
Frank discovers Butler was rarely at his Bronx precinct because he was planning to relocate and start a new job at a Westchester precinct. Things are less active here, so it becomes obvious Butler was looking for an easy way out.
Frank tells Butler that what he did was the same as abandoning his troops during war time. Butler gets up and says, “With all due respect Commissioner, I don’t have to take this.” However, Frank has the last word. He informs Butler he might want to reconsider relocating. He called the Westchester Police Department and told them everything about what Butler did and why he’s really leaving the Bronx.
Blue Bloods airs on CBS Fridays at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
