Rookie Blue Review: Who Got Stung?

by at . Comments

The twists and turns on Rookie Blue just didn't stop as relationships continued to transform at a surprising pace Thursday night.

Jo was like a predator stalking her prey in a tight shirt and a pretty smile, while "Stung" also gave us a glimpse at Luke and Jo's past - and a shocking look at their future.

Undercover on Rookie Blue

Well, I wasn't completely shocked, especially after Jo answered the door in only her panties. Why did she take her pants off to answer the door during an undercover operation? Oh yes, that's right. It was to seduce Luke.

So Luke gave up a promotion to stay with Jo only to have her take the same promotion and leave him. Ouch! That means he's been nursing a broken heart and a wounded ego for a long time now. Was Andy just a bandaid?

Not that he was doing it consciously, but Andy's going to get crushed, nevertheless. I only hope Swarek's around to help her pick up the pieces.

How long do you think Luke's been waiting to hear that Jo regretted her decision? Once she admitted it, it was like the dam broke and all of that underlying passion couldn't be denied.

My only question is whether Luke's going to man up and tell Andy the truth because I don't see Jo backing down or going away.

On other fronts, the car giveaway sting was a lot of fun and Dov was right. Swarek was in his glory.

Dov's bomb scare rendered some interesting results and a couple of strange quirks. 

Such as, did anyone else notice the guy in the bomb suit was outside while the cute chick in the t-shirt went in and saved Dov. That was a little odd.

When Dov emerged unscathed, was Gail's hug just a little longer than necessary? Then in the locker room she seemed to act the role of the upset lover more than concerned roommate.

When Chris pulled his application for the Mounted Patrol so Dov had a better chance at it, the two made a pact. From now on, if it's something they really want they will both go after it and may the best man win. 

Wow, talk about foreshadowing. Something tells me the next thing they'll be fighting over won't be a promotion.

Rookie Blue's moving fast this season and I have to say I'm loving every minute of it. How about you? Leave a comment and discuss below!

I was reading somewhere else that they are looking for a new cast member- a rookie named Nick (?) will be joining 15th Division next season, and apparently there will be a love triangle involving him, Andy, and another man, perhaps Sam??? Nothing is certain yet, but i hope Andy chooses Sam personally. He really cares about her, and from the beginning, there was something missing between Luke and Andy. Something that Sam has...

Oops! Think I posted in wrong area. Any way, anyone have any ideas why Andy omitted Sam when she was talking to Traci about "family"? She named Dov, Chris, Gail, Luke but not Sam. Also, I find it strange that we didn't see any discussion between Andy & Luke about Jo in his hospital room. Andy acts like she has to let Luke do whatever he wants or she'll lose him.

Like noelle and Franke, hoping to see more of them and Ollie's life outside work. Of course I like Luke and Jo, she's a snake but so is he. He has sex with his ex when he asked his current to be his wife. Lowest form of loser but happy it will lead to an even better pairing...Sam and Andy. They need to do something because Its about to kill me lol. This show kicks serious azz

On last seasons final episode andy went undercover with swarek and they kissed as part of the undercover role so as much as i didnt like that happening between jo & luke it was understandable...what's not understandable is him sticking around and letting it happen again! I hope andy doesnt take him back after she finds out!

I really like the foreshadowing matchup between Chris and Dov. Gail has definitely grown on me and I think her character fits with Dov. Andy and Swarek belong together period.

Well there were two lines about the actual police part of the show in this week's review...and improvement. Good episode. The review, well....... What a hilariously bad Shirt/Tie combo for Chris.

I just started watching (season2) and I didn't want andy and luke to break up, before he slept with jo. Now I dunno..
