In the Blue Bloods episode ‘Confessions’, while Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) and Baez (Maria Ramirez) investigate the death of a socialite, NYPD Commissioner Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) tries to get a priest to break his oath in order to save a missing 15-year-old boy. Someone told the priest the boy’s whereabouts in the confessional. Frank is forced to have a conversation with the mortal man the priest reports to, Archbiship Kevin Kearns.
