According to TV Guide, Frank is having a hard time deciding whether to promote an officer who was acquitted on murder charges.

CBS has posted sneak peeks of the “Blue Bloods” April 8 episode on its official site. On one preview episode, the narrator says that an old controversy has the commissioner officer seeing red. Frank is seen arguing with his father about it, saying that it’s a police matter.

He presses Baez about Mosley, an old flame who promised to leave his wife for her. Danny thinks Baez should not be involved in the investigation, considering it might be personal for her. “If you want to sit this one out, it’s no problem,” Danny says, However, Baez refuses to be thrown off the case.

One teaser also focuses on Frank, as he receives the list of officers who are candidates for promotion. He sees the name of Thomas Scully, who is up for sergeant position. Lt. Sid Gormley (Robert Clohessy) says that Scully passed the requirements and the exam with flying colours.
