Blue Bloods Season 5 Episodes

22 Episodes 2014 - 2015

In the fifth season of this family-cop drama, Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) gets a new boss after Sgt. Gormley (Robert Clohessy) gets a big promotion from Frank (Tom Selleck): He's now Special Assistant to the Commissioner. But before Gormley moves into his new position, he temporarily reassigns some of his squad's partners, including Danny and Baez (Marisa Ramirez), when one detective comes out as gay and his partner refuses to work with him. Meanwhile, Jamie (Will Estes) volunteers to temporarily partner up with a cop at his squad who's been labeled a rat for testifying against her former partner. Bonds are further tested when Henry (Len Cariou) spots a man who's been in hiding for years since shooting a police officer. The shooter's cop son gets promoted to detective, and the son must decide whether he should try to get his father to confess to committing this serious crime.
