Mr. Gupta: “Thank you for trying to rid this place of all these drug dealing bastards!”
Rookie Blue wrapped up its second season with two back to back episodes: “On the Double” and “God’s Good Grace.” If you have yet to watch both of these, then hit subscribe before exiting the article. Rookie Blue airs on ABC (KTRK) and has already begun filming its third season!
Traci: “Don’t be so cynical.”
Jerry: “I’m a cop. I’m realistic.”
The finale was a gripping, thrilling ride all the way to the happy ending. Overall, the twists and turns were handled nicely. Although it is unsure what is going to happen to Donovan Boyd. The episode revealed that he was in on the murder of Jamie Brennan’s family. Now a lot of the officers knew he was involved towards the end of the episode, but no formal charges or repercussions seem to be handed to him. Maybe this is just cops protecting their own, but something about his dirty work should have been addressed. Afterall, Andy and Sam both get suspended for their actions. What was nice was the episode started out with people assuming Boyd was the good guy, and Brennan was the bad guy, and at the end, the roles almost swap. Ok, so Brennan isn’t a good good guy, but not the villain that he was initially described as.
Oliver: “If they go alone, they’ll screw up.”
Noelle: “If you go alone, you’ll screw up.”
One of the best things about the finale, personally, is that it showed the Rookies working together and working on their own. It really shows how much they have grown, but they are still rookies and their former training officers, Oliver and Noelle, will be there to help them out. Oh, and a new rookie was introduced! He definitely served as part of the comedic relief of the episode. Towards the end when he and Andy are in the squad car, she gives him a play by play of what is going on in the house. That was just a nice touch, stylistically, and it also showed Andy take on a training officer role. It is unclear whether or not he will be in the next season, although it seems strange to introduce a character in the finale and not have him in the next season. 15 Division hasn’t had a fresh batch of rookies for two years now.
Dov: “Old pictures of cops. Interrogation. Bulletin boards.”
So season two has come to an end. Overall, how did it fare? Are you ecstatic that we may get to see Andy and Sam in a “normal” relationship? Happy for Noelle and Frank? Tell me anything and everything Rookie Blue related, like your favorite quote!
