Andy: “I like this weekend. I’ll have you know, I like killing birds. One of my favorite things is getting poison ivy all over my body. It’s better than perfect. It’s us.”
“Home Run” is the July 30 episode of “Rookie Blue,” which was directed by Gregory Smith. Warning: this article contains spoilers. Be sure to check out the slideshow for more quotes from the episode. “Rookie Blue” airs Thursday nights at 9 p.m. CT on ABC.
Gail being nervous and giggly was really weird to watch. Did anyone else feel uncomfortable? It’s been awhile since the Peck siblings got to work together, and for a while, it was really cute to see them getting along.
But then, Steve had to go and be a terrible person. He’s way too focused on nailing Boz Shepherd. Yes, it sounds like Boz is not a very nice guy, but Gail’s right – he shouldn’t go to jail for something he didn’t do.
When the paperwork issue was mentioned, it didn’t seem like Steve would be the kind of guy who knowingly acted without a warrant, but after this, it’s not surprising at all. He seems to be on a dark path, one that no one really cares too much about except for Gail. Did Steve’s behavior shock anyone else?
Other than seeing Steve in a totally new and negative light, the case of the week was okay. It was a little shocking that the cops weren’t the targets of the drive by, but in the end, it made sense. The best part of the entire case was definitely the focus on Gail and Steve, and Gail’s continuing journey to adopt Sophie.
Sam really, really wanted his weekend with Andy to be perfect, and sometime around his reaction to the state of the cabin, it clicked as to why he was so hung up on perfection. McSwarek proposal weekend! There was some flailing whenever the light bulb went off, as well as some deep breaths in order to prepare for the moment.
It was such a cute proposal, and there were definitely tears. While it would have been cute to see Sam a couple weeks or months before talking to Oliver about his plans to propose, it was better that we didn’t know because we were also swept up in the moment like Andy was. Time to start planning the wedding! What are your thoughts/hopes for the McSwarek wedding?
Spending time with Sam and Andy alone was nice. It didn’t feel like we were wasting time with them instead of solving the case, and they were fun to watch. What helped was that Andy kept bringing up Juliet.
We finally got some Juliet answers. She is with Internal Affairs (IA). Wow, this makes sense, and now it’s time to apologize. Juliet, sorry for all the doubting of your intentions and thinking you were too shady to be anything but a bad person. However, this doesn’t make you and Nick any more interesting or shippable (sorry).
A couple episodes back, Marlo and Dov came to the conclusion that the evidence locker bombing was an inside job, and so we were already on board with this theory. Juliet being IA gives us another insight into the investigation, and let’s face it, Marlo and Dov can’t do what Juliet has been doing.
The investigation into the bombing has been really well done. Now that we know why Juliet is at 15, we need to start seeing more of her investigation. It could be through Andy being her pushy self (it’s one of the reasons why we love her) and inserting herself in Juliet’s investigation, or we could follow along by sitting in on Juliet’s briefings with Noelle or by watching Juliet investigate.
Also, it was really great to see Noelle again. There was happy dancing whenever she appeared on screen. It’s good that the person Juliet is reporting to is familiar with the people at 15, and her commentary on Juliet’s suspicion of Chris proves just that. Seeing as how Sam requested IA look into 15, it wouldn’t have made sense if he didn’t go to someone he knew would look out for 15’s best interests.
What do you think of Juliet’s suspicions? It’s really hard to picture Oliver having anything to do with the bombing. This is Oliver Shaw, people! Okay, yes he did just arrange for his daughter’s arrest to be wiped from the system, but he did that to protect her. It’s not the same as planting a bomb. Who do you suspect?
