The Rookie – Heartbreak – Assessment


Want a refresher? Learn my recap of the earlier episode right here.

This yr marks the primary yr ever that Nolan will probably be spending a Valentine’s Day alone. He is nonetheless struggling to come back to phrases with it as he hasn’t even cancelled the standing order of roses for his spouse. However he will not be alone for lengthy, and that may not be an excellent factor.

Throughout patrol, Nolan saves a girl’s life when she comes near being electrocuted. Denise shortly latches onto Nolan as her savior and begins to stalk him. First she reveals up on the precinct to ship a muffin basket, then she calls in a faux 9-1-1 name when she is aware of Bishop and Nolan are within the space, and at last, she reveals up at Nolan’s Anti-Valentine’s Day celebration with Ben on her arm. Denise has been transferring her emotions on her just lately deceased husband (a soldier killed in motion) to Nolan. And she or he is not going to go away simply.

On the celebration, she spots Nolan and Lucy collectively and, assuming he is in love along with her, tries to commit suicide in Nolan’s bed room. As soon as once more, Nolan rescues her however Lucy volunteers to go to the hospital throughout her restoration. In all probability a wise transfer on her half.

Amidst Nolan’s creepy chaos, Tim is headed for splitsville himself. After Isabel lastly will get herself clear and sober, Tim decides to finish issues along with his spouse. Actually, I believed this was a wierd transfer for his character. I am going to admit, I like Mircea Monroe, however I do not assume Isabel has been including a lot to the general story, particularly not for Tim’s character (and that is not simply because I not-so-secretly wish to see him and Lucy collectively).

Nevertheless, Tim has proven nothing however unwavering loyalty and help for Isabel as she’s struggled to get herself clear. Now he desires to interrupt up along with her as a result of he thinks she will be able to’t transfer ahead with him in her life?

To begin with, perhaps Tim ought to let Isabel determine how she feels. The woman barely will get a phrase in edge-wise. Second, is now the very best time to do that? I imply absolutely she’s nonetheless in a fragile place. It simply appeared very abrupt, as if the writers had been keen to jot down the character off, I assume. Maybe Tim would not really feel the identical method about her anymore and he wanted a pleasant solution to say it. The entire, “it is not you, it is me” excuse is nearly as good as
any I suppose.

Additionally coping with romantic troubles? Wesley and Angela. They have been sleeping collectively, not fairly able to make issues extra severe (so they are saying) though Wesley did really purchase Angela a Valentine’s Day reward. Then he will get held in contempt for mouthing off to a decide about police brutality and Angela takes it as a slight, inflicting a rift of their relationship. Wesley apologizes however when Angela presents a reconciliation dinner, he cannot as a result of he has plans.


Angela does some snooping into his cellphone and sees “Dinner-Melanie”, assuming the worst. Besides, seems, Melanie is Wesley’s step-mom. His dad died the yr earlier than and he takes her out so she is not alone. Even worse, he is aware of Angela was trying by his cellphone and would not take kindly to the impromptu search in any respect. In order that they finish issues in a foul place, which sucks as a result of I really like the 2 of them collectively! Here is hoping they’ll get it labored out.

Exterior of the romantic subplots of the episode. The primary case-of-the-week facilities round a serial killer who pretends to have dementia with the intention to get away with assaulting girls. He finally ends up knocking Jackson unconscious and practically escapes too, however Angela is ready to catch him earlier than that occurs. It was an attention-grabbing plot, sort of makes me desire a reliable serial killer storyline on the present.


Odds & Ends

– It was such a pleasant shock to be taught Jackson is a part of the LGBTQ neighborhood! I had a sense given the flirtation between he and the nurse however I did not need to get my hopes up till the tip of the episode confirmed it.

A brand new episode of The Rookie titled “Caught Stealing” airs February 19th on ABC.
