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!
