If you’ve been watching Blue Bloods for quite some time, you already know that family dinner is a sacred thing. It’s a chance for the entire family to band together on this show, largely for the purpose of speaking their mind and also showing that no matter what’s going on, this family can still get together and talk through the issues when they matter the most.
So when someone new enters the family dinner table, that’s a big deal — and that is precisely what is happening for Treat Williams’ character of Lenny. Frank’s longtime friend and former partner, who still is a thorn in his side more often than not, is going to be present, and that could lead to some fun. Given that this is the 200th episode of the series, it does make sense to introduce some big moments into the world that will have us talking.

Speaking via TVInsider, Williams shares his reaction to being there for family dinner — while also adding that his presence there could showcase different sides of a number of main characters:
“I was very honored that I was invited to the family dinner … No outsider had ever had dinner with the family.
“I don’t think they’re used to somebody being Frank’s equal, being comfortable with Frank to call him nicknames and to give him a hug and to kiss him on a cheek … He’s this mountain of a powerful guy, and then you have a guy who put his life on the line with this guy for 15 years.”
As for what else Lenny is doing in the premiere, let’s just say that it involves his kid and a situation that he needs Frank’s help to resolve. We like to think the two characters hang out when there isn’t drama; yet, they’re not going to show us that! We get to see the dramatic parts of the relationship, and that is something Williams discusses:
“I just love the fact that Lenny always does something to screw up Frank’s day [and] make [his] life more difficult because he’s a bit of a live wire … I love this first episode of Blue Bloods. It’s so fun. There are many, many surprises in the life of Lenny. Frank always does the right thing and gets involved.”
