"Unwritten Rules" is the first episode of the fourth season of Blue Bloods.


Shortly after Jamie is assigned a new partner, Edit "Eddie" Janko, they respond to a call where suspects are fleeing a jewelry store heist. While giving chase, one of the first officers on the scene is shot and later dies. Frank turns it into a mission for the NYPD to find the shooter. The case ends up being assigned to Danny and Baez who have a witness to the crime. Unfortunately, the elderly woman is unable to identify the man they suspect of the crime, so Danny coaches her. Erin doesn't think the woman's testimony is good enough, especially with Danny's interference, so she lets their suspect go. This causes backlash among both the family and the rank-and-file of the NYPD who promptly stage a "blue flu" in retaliation. Erin and Danny must work together to come up with another way to get their suspect.
