First, Lyle Lovett returned to the Blue Bloods cast as Texas Ranger Waylon Gates in the first episode of 2022. And now Jimmy Buffett is making his New York crime thriller debut.

In a teaser for this week’s new episode of Blue Bloods, Danny (played by Donnie Wahlberg) and Baez (played by Marisa Ramirez) are decked out while dining at what appears to be a fancy restaurant. After toasting wine glasses, Danny notices Jimmy Buffett sitting at the bar, where Baez nudges him to say hello. The clip then cuts to Danny on the boardwalk chasing Buffett only to request his ID and call him for his identity.

While this back-and-forth would have most fans wondering whether Jimmy is playing himself on the show or is meant to be a double trying to pass as the famous “Margaritaville” singer, all fans can realize it’s Danny and Baez. “The question is why are they out and about in fancy clothes together,” an excited fan asked in the comments section of the Instagram post. “You better go out on a date,” shouted another fan. “So Danny and Maria huh?” another wrote, accompanied by a sideways eye emoji. “Are we just going to ignore what looks like Reagan and [Baez] on a date?” asked another fan.

And the comments just kept coming. Though we won’t know the backstory until Jan. 14, based on previous remarks from the show’s creators (not to mention the actors themselves), it’s highly likely that the two were undercover on an assignment — not suddenly on a date together.
