The Rookie: SEASON 1, EPISODE 20: Free Fall | TVBuzer

Aired: April 16,2019

As the rookies prepare for a big exam to see who moves on to the next stage of training, Officer Nolan and Officer Bishop are called to the scene of a murder and learn that the victim may be tied to a potential terrorist attack on the city of Los Angeles.... more



The Checklist

Talia and Dylan shared a foster home as kids... more

Improvise, adapt, and overcome were t... more
