“Blue Bloods” is known for its family dinners, but will there be a special Thanksgiving episode this year? Showbiz Cheat Sheet will tell you what to expect this week.
Vanessa Ray had a surprising reaction before filming her first dinner scene
During an interview with “CBS Watch!” Vanessa Ray discussed how it was for her to shoot her first family dinner scene with the main cast members. The interviewer asked her if she had fun or if the experience was chaotic because there are so many cast members. Ray said she initially felt fear when she had to shoot those scenes. Here’s how she described her first Reagan family dinner:
I feel like I had to learn how to act at those scenes from Eddie. That sounds crazy, but my first reaction being at those dinner table scenes with legends—people who’ve been in the business for so many years—was to be scared. I would walk in and my confidence level was shook, but what was on the page was never that. Eddie speaks her mind. When I came into my husband’s family it was the same kind of thing, and having gone through it on the show, I was able to be more honest in my real life and not shy away from outspoken moments.
Will ‘Blue Bloods’ have a Thanksgiving episode?
Sadly, there won’t be a special Thanksgiving episode, according to “TV Insider.” A regular Reagan family dinner will have to do. If you’re longing for a Thanksgiving with the Reagans, you can re-watch season two, episode eight, titled “Thanksgiving.” During this episode, Frank has a heart attack on Thanksgiving eve. Consequently, they must have their holiday dinner at the hospital. It’s not a cheerful topic, but it does have a Thanksgiving theme.

Danny and Baez look into the mysterious death of a freshman at a fraternity party. Also, Frank has to fight a lawsuit after a sergeant says the NYPD is guilty of reverse racism and ageism.
What happened last week on ‘Blue Bloods’
