The family got very real in a recent episode of the show where they discussed the importance of family and how much they meant to one another.
Blue Bloods featured a very serious family dinner in the Reagan household in the Friday, April 13, episode titled Risk Management, which had many fans at home in tears.
As reported by Pop Culture, Danny Reagan (played by Donnie Wahlberg) was tasked with finding a young girl who had been kidnapped, and he only had 72 hours to do it or she would die without her heart medication.
During the course of his investigation, he discovered that her parents had gotten involved with loan sharks because they had been running low on money. It was the loan shark who had consequently taken their daughter for the money.
As a result of the intense case on hand, the Reagan family dinner - a centerpiece of every Blue Bloods episode - centered around what they would do for their own children.
Frank Reagan (played by Tom Selleck) explained that they had made a pact when their children were born.
"We made the choice to bring you into the world, you didn't make the choice, we did," Danny said. "So a bargain was struck that day that you owe us nothing and we owe you everything," he said.
But Erin Reagan (played by Bridget Moynahan) explained to the younger Reagans that they did owe their parents one thing: to take that agreement as seriously as they did.
Jamie Reagan (played by Will Estes) asked if it was fun to have children, to which there were sarcastic replies that it's not so great when the children won't listen and behave as they are expected to.
But Frank brought it back to how amazing it is when everyone gets along and behaves well and kindly.
"And then it comes back around to being a blast again," Frank said. "Only a bigger blast. It becomes... everything."
The scene ended on that note, leaving many viewers emotional.
Fortunately, Danny managed to solve his case and rescue the little girl just in time for her to be able to receive her heart medication and survive her terrible ordeal.
Another scene that had fans in tears was Sean Reagan (played by Andrew Tarraciano) receiving a medal for his award-winning essay. His father, Danny, had had to convince him to accept the award.
It turned out that Sean had not wanted to because he was afraid that he would cry in public thinking about his mother Linda. Danny convinced him on the grounds that Linda would have wanted him to go.
As a result, Sean dedicated the medal to his mother during his acceptance.
