Actor Dylan Walsh guest-starred as Mayor-Elect Peter Chase on last night’s episode of Blue Bloods, titled Friends in High Places. The episode introduced viewers to the new mayor who wanted Erin Reagan (Bridget Moynahan) to run for Manhattan District Attorney.
Reagan was caught off guard when Chase suggested that she run for District Attorney, but she managed to compose herself. She said she was “loyal to her office” and her current position as assistant district attorney. But Mayor-Elect Chase was intent on getting Reagan to run for DA and oust her boss, Samar Chatwal (Aasif Mandvi).
“Stay loyal to your office,” he said. “Mr. Chatwal is not the office. He’s just the guy sitting in it for now.”

It seemed clear that Chase wanted to use Reagan for his own purposes. He said he did not like Chatwal’s “bent,” and that he disagreed with his view that states criminals and their victims have equal rights.
