The 13th season of Blue Bloods has already packed in plenty of drama for Commission Frank Reagan (played by Tom Selleck) and his family of loyal New York cops. With the hit CBS series currently taking a two-week break, fans have been looking back at some classic episodes and have unfortunately uncovered a glaring error with Lieutenant Sidney Gormley (Robert Clohessy).

Fans have uncovered an embarrassing Blue Bloods moment in which Lieutenant Gormley is referred to by the wrong rank despite recently receiving a promotion.

Back in the fifth season, Gormley has been a sergeant within the NYPD since his introduction in the first instalment.

He currently serves as a Special Assistant to the Commissioner, and has been an important advisor and superior to Frank throughout the series.

However, Gormley has still had to work his way up the ranks to maintain his position as one of the most important and powerful cogs in the machine.

In the 10th episode of season five, Gormley is finally promoted to Lieutenant, but it apparently took a while for his colleagues to get used to his new rank.

One observant fan has taken to the message boards when they realised Gormley isn’t referred to by his proper title in the very next episode, Baggage.

They wrote: “Sergeant Gormley is promoted to Lieutenant in the previous episode.

“In this episode he is referred to as Sergeant Gormley by Commissioner Reagan and Deputy Commissioner Garrett Moore (Gregory Jbara) at least twice.”

Both Frank and his deputy fail to recognise Gormley’s new rank, despite his promotion being made public knowledge just one episode beforehand.

This could be because episodes and scenes are shot out of order, so the promotion in episode 10 hadn’t been established when episode 11 started filming.

Additionally, episodes 10 and 11 are credited to different writers, who may not have been able to discuss this specific continuity detail before going into production.

Even so, the error remains as a particularly glaring mistake in the scripts for viewers who may have watched these episodes back-to-back.

To make matters worse, fans have also spotted another blunder committed by DC Moore within the very same episode.

“In this episode, Garrett says that ‘Nom de Guere’ means pen name,” another viewer wrote.

“It means war name. ‘Nom de Plume’ means pen name and Garrett is supposed to be an expert in his field.”

Anyone watching with some knowledge of French may not have been able to help being distracted by this unfortunate faux pas.

Thankfully, blunders like this are few and far between, and Blue Bloods has remained one of CBS’s most consistently popular series still on screens.

In the latest episode of the current season, Frank’s sons Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) and Jamie (Will Estes) clashed over a gang-related shooting.

Meanwhile, Frank is struggling to remain relevant within the ever-changing police force, and is concerned when he’s not invited to speak at a policing forum.

Blue Bloods season 13 continues Friday, December 2 on CBS in the USA. A UK release date is yet to be announced.
