Frank (Tom Selleck) and Erin (Bridget Moynahan) also appears in the preview video.

The opening scene shows Frank and Danny at the cemetery. Danny asks whether Frank has ever regretted being a cop. “I’ve regretted some decisions I’ve made, but never being a cop,” Frank replies. On the next part of the teaser, Danny has nightmares about Thomas Wilder (Louis Cancelmi), the serial he killed last season.

In the trailer, Danny also loses it when he’s being questioned about the case, saying that he meant what he said before: he wanted to kill Wilder. Erin then warns him, “You go into the grand jury talking like that, you’ll go to trial for murder.” Towards the end of the clip, Danny finds himself backed in the corner, as his colleagues accuse him of shooting Wilder for revenge.

Followers of “Blue Bloods” would remember that Thomas, played by “Boardwalk Empire” actor Cancelmi, was a serial killer shot down by Danny in an encounter.
