The title of this week’s episode of Rookie Blue has me worried…but why borrow trouble. “Two Truths and a Lie” is the first episode of the season where most people aren’t miserable. It’s better to just enjoy the good times when they come along. As you’ll see in this review of Rookie Blue episode 5 x 6, there is much to be happy about!
Season five of Rookie Blue is looking like one giant Rube Goldberg machine! Every episode is setting up complicated situations and circumstances that trigger more of the same. Time wise, episode 5×5, “Going Under” takes place just few days after the events of Rookie Blue episode 5×4 and the dominoes are still falling! Let’s review!
This week Rookie Blue continued on its “Life is Not a FairyTale” theme. Everybody is “Wanting” – in both good and bad ways. The events in Rookie Blue episode 5×4 make me nervous about what’s going down later in the season, but we’re not there yet. For now, let’s just recap the events and review what’s happening in the episode.
In the season five preview of Rookie Blue writer/creator Tassie Cameron said the theme of season five is “Life is not a fairy tale.” The Rookie Blue episode, “Heart Breakers, Money Makers ” certainly lives up up the ideal that happy endings are a rare thing! The scenes with Sam and Andy are sweet, but everyone else is a mess!
“Under Fire” is a stellar Rookie Blue episode! I didn’t think this was possible, but this week the show is even more packed than last week. Some shows will try to fill an episode up by throwing everything but the kitchen sink in the mix. Rookie Blue is more like watching the perfect game of Tetris: all these odd pieces come together and make a perfect fit.
Rookie Blue is closing in on its finale and things are getting more intense than ever! After watching the Rookie Blue episode “Deception” I couldn’t help thinking that the producers knew it was going to be a holiday weekend. It felt like the episode had even more going on than usual – and for Rookie Blue, that’s a heck of a lot!
