Rookie Blue Review: We Can't All Be Poster Boys

at . Comments

Rookie Blue was back and better than ever as "Class Dismissed" had everyone's relationships in flux and no one was on solid ground.

After last week's episode, I was glad to see Sam and Andy looking so happy and spending time in Andy's bed. After their cold start in the season premiere it was a relief to know things had heated up between our dynamic duo.

Swarek & Andy Draw Their Weapons

Andy was really playing the girl card as she got insecure about Sam taking off to meet up with Jerry. Was she seriously pushing for them to move in together already? It certainly felt like it. 

I loved when Sam deflected her serious relationship conversation with the mention of yoga class. I just can't picture Sam doing yoga. Then again, I might like to picture Sam doing yoga.

Sam brought Andy back to reality when in this Rookie Blue quote he explained where his head was at…

I think you were ready to marry someone else six months ago. | permalink

Sam's right. Andy's moving way too fast. She nearly married Luke, then jumped into bed with Sam. She promised him a relationship and then didn't call him for three months and now she's anxious to take things to the next level.

I love Sam and Andy together but if they're going to last they need to take things slow and enjoy the ride. The plus side is that it will allow fans to enjoy it too.

In other news, Dov lost a police car. Honestly, do a lot of cops leave their keys in their cruisers because that seems pretty dumb?  Still, I felt for Dov. He tries so hard but can't quite get it right and thinking about Dov on the SWAT team is a little scary.

Dov was still with the bomb squad chick, whom I like but it felt like he and Gail never really got a their chance. I'm hoping they find their way back to one another sometime in the near future.

And I had no idea what suicide drills were but with a name like that I had only one question. Why? I might want Dov and Gail together eventually but if Sue and Dov were willing to do suicide drills to impress one another, I'd guess they're going to be together for a while.

The high school kids who stole the car were stupid, but realistically so. Everyone feels invincible when they're that age. Some of us were smart enough to grow out of it. Of course getting caught selling a shot gun to someone and stealing a police car might help them learn the realities of life a whole lot quicker.

Chris' poster was hysterical. Dov looked so jealous until he saw the graffiti. But I did wonder where Noelle's posters were hanging.

Finally there's a few quick side notes…

  • Happy to hear Noelle and the baby were OK.
  • Very sad to find out Ollie and his wife have separated. He adores his family.
  • Chris was great with the kid. He'll make a great dad some day.
  • What are the odds of next week's episode opening with Peck and Collins in bed together?
  • I always love how intense Sam gets when Andy's in danger and he's not by her side. I might never get enough of that.

With the summer schedule causing most of my network favorites to disappear, it's great to have Rookie Blue back once again.

Ben Bass shirtless...YES PLEASE!
I have had a crush on him since episode 1 season 1!
This was another great episode!
So Sam and Andy are back together, however Sam just sleeps over and does not bring a change of clothes, this bother Andy and she confronts him later on about it, saying they are different and she fears he does not think it will work out. He tells her she was engaged just 6 months ago and there is no need to rush their relationship. Andy appears to be fine with it but you can tell she wants to move faster than he does and the look on his fast when they are back at her house and she is sleeping on his lap makes me think that she was right and they won't last.
Andy and Sam are different, she thinks more and gives people the benefit of the doubt where as Sam acts on instinct and admitted himself that he would have shot the kid if it were not for her.
I really like Nick too! I like that he called Gail out for being a b**ch!
I knew she could not resist him for long, I still want to know what happened to them in the past! I think she became mean and stand offish after the relationship ended.
I knew as soon as Oliver pulled up to the house that he and his wife were separated, it makes since as he was trying to talk up his marriage as if nothing was wrong.
Chris as always is super funny!


Loved this episode! All the characters had great screen time. Love Sam and Andy and I agree they need to take it slow and enjoy the ride. Hmm, i wonder what same was thinking at the very end..
This show just keeps getting better and better!


I just completely disagree with Gail and the new guy. With what Chris and Gail went thru last year b4 DOV f'd it up, its hard to believe that wouldn't work it out. They were definately the best relationship and the show just SCREWED it up!!!!!!!!!!


Agree with your relationship evaluations; so sad for Oliver.
Miss Luke (but where would he have fit in?)
Is is just me or are Jerry's one liners great this Season?


I loved this episode. This season started strong and is still going strong. Next episode looks intense!
