So where does the latest problem with Frank stem from? It pertains to a run-in that he had with a number of local community activists, one that is leading to him questioning whether or not the confrontation was genuine or if it was some sort of elaborate ploy designed to embarrass him. If there’s one thing we know for sure about Frank as Police Commissioner, it is that he doesn’t like feeling like someone is out to tarnish the NYPD’s reputation. He’s going to react in a way that is harsh, and in a way that the other party may not like. It’s possible that he and the activists can reach some sort of compromise — after all, this is how many other tenuous situations on this show tend to be resolved. Frank does tend to be rather adept at hearing people out and trying to come up with some sort of solution that works for everyone.
As for what else you can expect to see in this episode, Jamie will be doing his best to try and separate himself from Frank as a cop. This isn’t really a matter of respect; instead, it’s just a matter of Jamie wanting to be seen as more of his own person rather than someone who just will do whatever Frank says and act, more or less, in the same way.
On a more lighthearted note, be prepared to see Danny in Papa Bear mode after he learns that Sean is dating the neighbor’s kid — we know that Danny is adept at all sorts of investigations, so we imagine him doing his own version of a background check here in order to make sure that his kid is being exposed to a good environment and some positive influences. With Jack gone off to school now, Sean is going to be the focus of more of his attention — which may be both a good and bad thing for him.
