Blue Bloods season 9 episode 20 return date: ‘Strange Bedfellows’

Blue Bloods season 9

Excited for Blue Bloods season 9 episode 20? We’re a big believer that it’s never TOO early to be excited for what’s coming up next, but we are going to be stuck waiting for a little while for more — think two weeks. On the flip side, isn’t there some relief in knowing that we’re about to embark on the final hiatus of the season? Unless something crazy happens, we should get new episodes every week for the remainder of the year.

Of course, beyond this, there is some other glorious news to celebrate — the fact that there is going to be a season 10 this fall! That was first confirmed earlier today, with the news being thrown in there that Tom Selleck had officially re-upped his contract to play Frank Reagan a little bit longer. His contract seemed to be the thing that sparked the renewal; negotiations with the rest of the cast remain ongoing.

So what’s coming up over the rest of season 9? We know that the finale will contain the long-awaited Jamie/Eddie wedding, and it appears as though episode 20 is going to feature a great conflict between Erin and Frank as she has to try to convince him of something that he may not superficially want to do. This also brings back Dexter alum David Zayas as the Governor, who seems to have replaced Mayor Poole and Mayor Dutton as the go-to politician to drive conflict on the show. (Whatever happened to the Mayor character showing up with regularity? Certainly a good question.)

Below, CarterMatt offers up the official Blue Bloods season 9 episode 20 synopsis with some additional scoop now on what’s ahead:

“Strange Bedfellows” – Erin must convince Frank to back a new state police bill as part of a bargain she made with Governor Mendez (David Zayas). Also, Danny and Baez pursue the same perp twice after the DA’s office is unconvinced by their initial lineup, and Frank faces a challenge when a cop killer comes up for parole, on BLUE BLOODS, Friday, April 26 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

More than likely, the title for this episode is a reference to Erin waking up and realizing that she’s formed a most unusual partnership — one that she certainly didn’t expect to find herself having. Who would’ve thought that she would need to team up with the Governor and then convince her father to get on board? This certainly qualifies as one of the stranger situations she’s been a part of in her career.
