In December 2020, Sami Gayle spoke to Glitter Magazine about Blue Bloods, from her connection to the heartwarming role of Nicky Reagan-Boyle to her overall experience working on the now-famous police drama. During the chat, she answered a question about what her dream story would be for Nicky, and — considering the character’s lineage — it makes a lot of sense. “I would love to see Nicky fulfill her desire to serve in the NYPD,” Gayle replied, adding that if the opportunity arises, she would also like to see Nicky with her uncle, the NYPD detective. rides Danny Reagan (Donnie Wahlberg).
Time will tell what Nicky Reagan-Boyle is up to in “Blue Bloods” and if she will ever be a central part of the show again. It certainly sounds like Sami Gayle would like to do more with Nicky outside of her new California home — not only to further explore Nicky as a character, but also to spend time with the cast she’s become so close to is. She said in a 2017 interview, “I grew up surrounded by the most accomplished professionals and role models and a second mother in Bridget [Moynahan].” Gayle has referred to the Blue Bloods crew as her second family and emphasized how much she’s learned and grown thanks to the show.
Just as Sami Gayle’s Nicky Reagan-Boyle made her move in “Blue Bloods,” she disappeared. One can only hope that she returns sooner rather than later, possibly also to explore some of Gayle’s story ideas.
