The Dark Side

The build up to The Rookie Season 2 Episode 10 cliffhanger was palpable as viewers were promised that a character we knew would be the next victim.  The suspense had me holding my breath while guessing at the identity of the latest casualty.

Clean Cut

An impromptu evalutaion, crime scene bioremedition and two guest stars from two of my all time favorite shows descended upon The Rookie Season 2 Episode 8.

Although it did make me wonder if having him and the woman being... more
