Rookie Blue Round Table: "Under Fire"

by at . Comments

With 15 Division "Under Fire," several of our favorite (or not so favorite) couples found themselves at a crossroads on Rookie Blue last Thursday.

Below, TV Fanatic Christine Orlando is joined by Laura, Stacey, and Sarah from Two Worlds Collide: A Sam Swarek/Andy McNally Fan Forum as they try to decide what Sam will do now that he knows about Nick and Andy and whether Marlo deserves the blame for 15 Division being terrorized. Gather around and join us!

-------------------------------------------

What was your favorite scene from the episode?

Laura: Actually, there were several scenes in this episode that I loved, and all for VERY different reasons!  However, since you are making me pick one, I'm going to go with Gail and Holly in the interview room because I actually teared up. For me, it really illustrated the seriousness of the situation, but was also funny, sweet and poignant. The Charlotte and Gail scene was also incredibly moving; she was so scared but so brave.

Stacey: The entire part about Andy and Chloe getting shot at, including the piece where Chris and Nick are on a balcony while you can hear Andy and Oliver through the radio. It was an intense and chilling sequence of events. I was on the edge of my seat and feel that it was acted and directed so perfectly. One of the very best scenes ever in four seasons of this show.

Sarah: I really enjoyed the first scene with Andy and Chloe. Chloe was hilarious when they were chatting in the cruiser. When they responded to the emergency call about the man in the park and were shot at, it really set the intensity for the rest of the episode. The acting and directing were great and I was glued to my screen the rest of the hour.

Christine: Chloe getting shot. I almost wish I hadn't known it was coming. The fact that she was still conscious and talking and terrified just added to it. Plus Andy's desperate calls for help. It was all very well done.

Rookie Blue Round Table!

Should Dov fight for Chloe?

Laura:  At this point, I think he shouldn't give up and walk away.  He just can't.  I really hope he waits to hear her side and her reasons for not telling him she was married.

Stacey: Absolutely! Dov and Chloe have a great thing going; they are so adorable together. I feel like there's a reason Chloe has never mentioned in the slightest about being married and that even her godfather Frank doesn't know. She might wish it never happened and hasn't been able to get out of the marriage yet for some reason. Dov needs to not give up, let Chloe explain and then fight to keep her.

Sarah: Yes, Dov should fight for Chloe. They are two very quirky people that make an awesome match. Chloe's husband doesn't seem to know her very well and I think Dov has her best interests at heart.

Christine: Yes! What did Gail say? The geek king has found his queen. Dov needs to hear Chloe's side of this story. I kind of wish he had told Wes they were dating. It would have been interesting to have seen his reaction.

Is Andy right? Is Kevin Ford targeting 15 Division Marlo's fault?

Laura: I think Marlo was a catalyst for Ford's actions, and that stalking Ford, canvassing his neighbors, breaking into his house questions her ability to competently do her job, but she can't be held responsible for him taking revenge on 15 Division. He chose to respond the way he did. 

Stacey: Yes, Andy is completely right. It was only after Marlo stalked him - which resulted in Kevin being assaulted by a neighbor - that Kevin decided to take revenge on 15 Division. It doesn't matter what anyone else has or hasn't done, Kevin wouldn't have a grudge if it weren't for Marlo.

Sarah:  I think Andy is right. Kevin Ford would not have a grudge against 15 division if Marlo didn't start poking around in his life and talking to his neighbors about him. He may have not liked cops prior, or even had run-ins with the law, but Marlo's unauthorized investigation is what sent him off the edge. Even though I think Marlo is partly to blame for Ford's sudden rampage, a man who is innocent would not be doing what Ford is doing.

Christine: How Marlo handled things was wrong but in the end she hopefully helped get a pedophile off the streets. Even as poorly as she went about it, as a parent I'd be grateful. Kevin Ford is obviously a nut case. I don't think she's to blame for him targeting 15. Just being arrested could have sent him over the edge.

Now that Sam knows how serious Andy and Nick are, will he do anything about it?

Laura: I hope he does. It was obvious that seeing them kiss made him angry, but I think finding out that Andy told Nick about what happened with Marlo was even more distressing and aggravating. Ben/Sam looked extremely frustrated, hurt, and angry when he got into the car during that scene. I really hope he confronts her, even if it causes them to fight like they have never fought before.

Stacey:  I actually don't believe Andy and Nick are serious at all. They are being shown simply to be friends with benefits/bed buddies. However, I don't think Sam cares how serious or not serious they are. I think once he finally ends it with Marlo (which is long overdue) he will fight for Andy. And I think Andy needs to see that fight before she can admit to herself how much she still loves Sam.

Sarah: I really hope Sam will do something about it, but I doubt he will. He loves Andy and wants to see her happy. Right now he thinks she is happy with Nick and I think he will continue to hide his true feelings and keep quiet. Sam is also a man of action and I believe his actions will ultimately show how he feels even if he won't vocalize it.

Christine: The thing about healthy relationships is, eventually you have to open up and say the words. Nick is good at telling Andy how he feels and what he expects from her. Sam is lousy at it and I think that needs to change for these two to ever have a chance at a successful future. As much as I rooted for Sam and Andy, I'm actually enjoying the fun and lightness of Andy and Nick.

Biggest shocker: Chloe has a husband, Gail kissing Holly, Chloe getting shot or Andy kissing Nick in the middle of the Division?

Laura: Chloe getting shot was such an intense scene!!  Even though I knew it would happen, it was absolutely riveting.  Missy/ Andy was believably terrified and emotional.

Stacey: I guess if I had to choose one of these options, I'd say Chloe having a husband, since she hasn't talked about one and her actions - flirting with Dov when she first came to 15 Division - go against having a husband. However, the biggest shocker to me was three weeks going by since Sam confessed his feelings about Andy to Oliver and him not taking any action to end things with Marlo. I'm very disappointed that Sam hasn't stepped up, even if it's a hard thing to do; he's stringing Marlo along and not giving Andy any reason to think she shouldn't be trying to move on.

Sarah: The biggest shocker was Chloe's husband showing up at the hospital. That is the only scenario I did not see coming. I also think there is a lot more to the story that I would definitely like to know.

Christine: I've got to go with Chloe having a husband. I never saw that one coming. I can't wait to hear her side of the story. Hopefully she'll be able to tell it soon.

Love the finale. Finally Sam and Andy has a fighting chance. They deserve it and each other. Its what she wants and what he wants...who are we or Nick to stand in the way of that...Man up or be a woman about it and leave to find someone who wants to dance with you...not looking over your shoulder at the person they really want to dance with. Let's face it...Andy's been looking over Nick's shoulder all season. Hey when Oliver finds out in 8 months about Sam boy is he gonna be sad.

So sad that RB is starting to have gay/lesbians on it. Had finally found a show i could watch w/o it on and enjoy :-( Please go back to eliminating it, it was a great show with out that aspect (and yes, it's part of life...in the real world. But, it is unbiblical, unethical, and well--GROSS. I have to see it in the world, i DO NOT have to bring it IN TO MY HOME!)

I think it is partially Marlos fault that Kevin Ford is targeting 15 Division. Because of her own decisions(stopping the bi-polar meds), she started to get obsessed over Ford. Therefore doing an unauthorized Investigation. You can't tell me that she just was too far gone, I mean she did remember to not tell the neighbors her name, so on some Level she must've known what she did.
It was actually never revealed if Ford actually is apedophile, I mean he got to leave the Hospital and can do whatever he wants, so I don't think he's even getting investigated. So while it was/is his decision to attack Police officers his Actions were motivated by what Marlo did. And she has to be Held accountable for what she did wrong, no matter that she's suffering from a bipolar disorder.
The part that's even worse is that it seems like she's still not convinced that she did something wrong or seeing her own part in it. I mean she didn't believe that Ford was a very valid possibility to be the shooter. Andy sums ít up: "Maybe someone pushed him to do it." I don't know, if Ford attacking 15 doesn't convince Sam that what they did was simply wrong nothing will.

. I think what attracted him too Andy was the need to save her but Andy has grown a lot and can stand on her own two feet which is different to him and I don’t think he knows how to handle it. Biggest shocker: Chloe has a husband, Gail kissing Holly, Chloe getting shot or Andy kissing Nick in the middle of the Division?
For me it was Chloe had a husband…only because I didn’t see that coming. But, what was more shocking was Oliver getting blindsided by Kevin Ford. I didn’t see that coming either….I love this show!

Is Andy right? Is Kevin Ford targeting 15 Division Marlo's fault?
Yes, it is part her fault but untimely Kevin Ford is to blame because he planed these shootings of (cops) and anyone who plans to kill someone is deranged and crazy in my book! All Marlo did was made the devil in side him come out sooner than later and may have saved a child in the process cause he was targeting them he just hadn’t acted on it yet. Now that Sam knows how serious Andy and Nick are, will he do anything about it?
I do think he should let Andy know how he feels but in my opinion he had his chance time and time again and he keeps blowing it. At least with Nick they talked things through. He is her friend, her confidante. With Sam you never know what you get from one day to the next. He has more in common with Marlo’s bipolar then Andy. I think what attracted him too Andy was the need to save her but Andy has grown a lot and can stand on her own two feet which is different to him and I don’t think he knows how to handle it. Biggest shocker: Chloe has a husband, Gail kissing Holly, Chloe getting shot or Andy kissing Nick in the middle of the Division?

What was your favorite scene from the episode?
Mine was when Chloe got shot. It was so believable. You could hear how scared Andy was from her frantic screams on the CB and the look on Chloe’s face was priceless. Should Dov fight for Chloe?
Oh yes, he should at least hear her side of why she didn’t disclose it to him. Maybe the husband is a crazy guy who won’t give her a divorce. Or maybe they are just too free spirited people that are better at being friends then husband and wife. Being that they both are cops, they may just didn’t get around to ending the marriage. But either way Dov need to stay with her cause she brings out the best in him and him in her.

1. Favorite scenes: Chloe getting shot. Oliver and Gail's conversation in the car. Sam seeing Nick and Andy together.
2. Should Dov fight for Chloe? No. She's the most annoying character the show has ever had. I miss having Dov scenes that didn't include Chloe.
3. Ford is targeting Division 15 because of what Marla did. However, if it weren't for Marlo, he would have continued to get away with what he was doing, so I'm glad he was exposed.
4. I hope Sam leaves Nick and Andy alone. This episode, more than any, illustrated how serious Nick and Andy are about each other.
5. Biggest shocker: Oliver being kidnapped by Ford. Didn't see that coming.
