Blue Bloods revealed a previously unknown piece of Reagan family history—deceased son Joe had a child!—and a seat had been added to the dinner table by the end of the 10th season finale.

As Frank (Tom Selleck) learned, after grandson Sean (Andrew Terraciano) got the ball rolling with an assignment about his family ancestry, Joe has a son, named Joe Hill (Will Hochman), who's now doing quite well for himself in the NYPD. (He's in the fire arms unit, though his mother, Paula, would rather he have a safer position.) He joined the family for Sunday dinner in the final scene of "Family Secrets."

"For Joe Hill, is it best for him to have a great-grandfather and a grandfather who are police commissioners, one uncle who's a very famous NYPD detective, another who's an NYPD sergeant, and an aunt who is high up in the District Attorney's office?" executive producer Kevin Wade teased. "It would completely change how everybody he worked with looked at him and related to him."

Because Season 10 ended three episodes early, "we have a number of things involving this Joe Hill thing that we already had in motion that we will revisit in Season 11," he added.
