Is Gregory Jbara leaving Blue Bloods, and is the character of Garrett saying goodbye? It was a part of the story tonight in a big way.
So what happened to make us nervous about Garrett’s future on the CBS show? In the early going, the new Mayor made it fairly clear that he wanted Frank to swap out Garrett — it’s a move that can often come with new regimes. That bummed us out, mostly because we love Garrett and think he’s a huge part of the show.
Yet, the big surprise was learning a little bit later on that Garrett may actually be departing the commissioner’s office himself — consider that something we never wanted to hear happen in a million years. He has an offer at Duke — he claimed that he wasn’t out looking for it, but that the offer ended up coming his way instead. It may have been a good offer for him, but at the same time, we couldn’t help himself when it comes to wanting him to turn it down.

Also, we couldn’t help but wonder if there was someone who knew what the Mayor was going to do, and tried to hire Garrett for another gig thinking that Frank would try to convince him to stay. Crazier things within this world have happened, right?
The end result of the story
Frank knew that something was suspicious with the Duke hire, and it turned out to be true. It turns out that Garrett got the job offer mostly as a means to get him to walk away from 1 Police Plaza, and that is hardly a reason for him to leave. He wants to feel wanted, and not exit in this particular way.
With this in mind, Garrett is not leaving the show … at least for now. We still don’t think that he’s 100% safe, but at the same time he’s sticking around the Commissioner’s Office. He is not leaving under his own accord, that’s for sure.
