Rookie Blue Season Finale Review: Andy to the Rescue?

by at . Comments

It was the season finale of Rookie Blue and, wow, "God's Good Grace" sure shook things up at Division 15.

Was anyone else as continually suspicious of new officer Pete as I was? He was just too eager and into everyone's business. Of course, I could've  just been paranoid. He is a rookie after all.

Rookie Blue Season Finale Scene

I was really disappointed in Chris when he opened his big mouth and told Pete about Andy's personal business. Although I didn't think he was trying to be mean, I just think there are moments when Chris isn't very bright.

I did appreciate the look Dov shot him, though. I was pretty sure Epstein wanted to give him a smack and, heck, I wouldn't blame him.

It was certainly apropos that Luke was the one to ask who Candace was. Thankfully, Jerry ignored the question until they stepped outside, but Luke looked sucker punched when he told him it was Andy. Hey, he can be upset but it's not like Andy cheated on him. She just moved on.

Gail was back to true form in this episode and I absolutely loved it. How much fun was her conversation with Detective Armstrong? Abrasive, blunt, and straight to the point, that's when Gail really shines.

And did anyone else think Gail was setting her sights on Luke? Now there's a pairing I hadn't considered. Chris was the one who dumped her  Could Luke be a rebound on the way back to Dov or do you think these two have any lasting potential?

Am I the only one who felt like Noelle and Frank were moving way too fast? Didn't they just have a first date? Now it's baby makes three?!? I'm all for seeing them happy, I just felt like we've skipped a couple of steps on the way there.

So much for God's Good Grace. Swarek was getting his ass kicked by Brennan. Nothing like a little makeshift waterboarding to get someone's attention.

As vicious as Brennan was, the stories about his little girl broke my heart. Of course Sam was right. It was his own past that caught up with him and his family paid the price.

I was glad Swarek got his face time with Boyd at the end, but I really wanted to see the dirty detective hauled out in cuffs for covering up a murder and putting Swarek's life on the line. He surely would've pinned it all on Andy if Sam hadn't survived.

It bothered me a little that we didn't get a celebratory hug between Sam and Andy when Sam was rescued but I guess that would have been inappropriate with all of their fellow officers around.

I wish we could have seen Andy at least get in the car with Sam, but him asking her to come and try out being normal with him will have to satisfy me until next summer. To find out what normal means for Sam and Andy, we'll all have to wait and see.

Oops, forgot to mention - Sam Swarek is solid! He's the kind of cop most guys would want their daughter to marry, not the pimpish Luke. The loyal hero with average looks should win Andy - not the flashy egomaniac Luke.
By the way, please tell Missy she won my heart... I'm now a big fan. However, since I'm not the stalking type of guy please tell Missy that if she's into old retired cops - I'll be here in Florida waiting for her...

Please keep Rookie Blue going - this is a great series! Andy is much like a young cop that worked for me in South Boston (Boston, Ma) in the late 90's - and had similar love and other issues, but she was a great young cop. Rookie Blue reminds me of so many young cops and my own rookie years, this show is well acted and has a good story line.
By the way, if I had a vote on story lines - Luke is cool, but too cool. I've know detectives like him that were all looks and ego - but the most dangerous thing they did in the line of fire was trip over their feet running to see a glimpse of themselves in a mirror when the real cops ran toward the gunshots and possible death. Good cops react to the "fight or flee" impulse by running toward the trouble, not away like the 95% of normal people that would not make good cops.
And - Dov is better off love-denied regarding GAil than being a back-stabbing pal. I couldn't stand Gail at first, but she also reminds me a lot of a young officer from Southie - first impressions were poor but the young lady turned out to be a great cop too.
Good Luck with Rookie Blue - KEEP IT GOING, PLEASE!

Absolutely love this show! The chemistry between Sam and andy is electric! I hope they get to stay together next season - I could watch this show every day! Great writing and great cast of characters. Love Oliver, Gail and Eppstein in particular.

Rookie Blue Season 2 Episode 13 Quotes

Pete: Who hangs up on the police?
Dov: Lots of people. You get used to it.

Swarek's a badass. He's probably wired up somewhere playing poker with the bad guys.
