Monica

Did I forget or is there just no given reason as to why Monica hates the LAPD. Also am I the only one who just doesn't like her character or?

S6 Missed Opportunities/some S7 Specs

But never got 😔but there’s always Season 7 to look forward to 😃

(Spoiler marked in case anything comes to fruition)

  • Lopez slapping the absolute shit out of Tim for the break up. Hell, if I was his best friend, I’d probably do it.

  • Tim nicks (Sergeant Friendly/Zaddy)

  • Aaron undercover (dude could probably pull off any role given, including going under as a Hollywood mogul)

  • On the topic of Aaron…romance. Despite the Celina pushback, I think even for a couple episodes before things may not work out would’ve worked. And it would’ve made Celina jealous and possibly try to one up whatever girl Aaron is seeing.

  • Genny. Definitely a missed opportunity there and she could’ve anchored Tim more, possibly aiding Lopez on her beat the shit out of Tim quest.

  • Tamara getting into a major situation where she needs help. Ex: she goes to a college party and it turns out there is loads of alcohol and drugs, and she calls Lucy (and Tim) for help. This could’ve lead Tim to be more of a father figure for her.

  • Harper/Lopez radio banter. We’ll need that for Season 7.

  • Smitty schemes. I know some people want less of him, but I think we needed more side hustles or borderline illegal (like taking unlicensed bets on the Chenford break up).

Onto season 7 speculation…

  • I feel like there’s a chance they’ll show Nolan battling Bailey’s ex in their house then a time jump where Bailey will be off screen *recovering * from some injuries sustained (Jenna had a baby so it’ll take time for her to come back).

  • With the time jump, they’ll slow the *small doses * elevator scene then jump like 3 months to show them back in a relationship.

With the exception of Oscar and Jason escaping and the Chenford will they/won’t they, none of the other characters will be affected, if at all.

Comment below what you thought was missed in S6 and what you want to see in 7:

Do you guys like the documentary style episodes?

I'm in season 4 right now with the Thornsen family being the center of the plot for a murder. I personally find the documentary style so random and not as entertaining. I felt the same way with the documentary made on the cult story.

There are also episodes where they use the police bodycam, dashcam, and CCTV footage for a prolonged period of time and idk it feels a bit out of place lols.

Still enjoying the series though and I do find it fun seeing Chen very excited to be in a true crime documentary. Excited to get to season 5 and 6!

Nolan X Beckett?

Not sure if I should be posting this in the Castle Reddit BUT how do yall think Detective Beckett and John Nolan would get along?? I think that at first Beckett wouldn’t take him seriously but then start to really respect him as a cop even though he’s the ‘oldest’ rookie. And then obviously they would date. Sorry Bailey 😩🤣

So question

I feel like this show doesn't set things up or just has a line about it such as how Talia went to work somewhere else and a different character says that so am I the only one who feels this

Grey’s rank

Sgt grey has been at Sargent for a while now, probably a few years before 2019 he became a Sargent. What I find odd is in the LAPD most watch commanders are lieutenants, so why is grey (a Sargent) a watch commander or why hasn’t he been promoted by now?

3x10 - Felt sorry for Nolan in this episode

Jackson and Chen get put up for a medal for finding that wee girl, but it was Nolan who put this whole thing in motion. Figured out the fact that the wife was being forced cause they were holding her daughter hostage, helped talk the wife through where she was held and where she travelled. Nolan saved that mother and child. Yet he gets little recognition for figuring out the whole thing even after Harper actively discouraged him from following up on it.

I spotted the orchestrator of Aaron & Celina’s ambush before the reveal

Rewatching the season 5 finale of The Rookie I noticed that the orchestrator was in the elevator with John Nolan when he got into the hospital.

This potentially explained how the attackers where able to invade Nolan & Harper’s homes. The boss had sent the invaders after them when they were sent home by Sergeant Grey.

It just a little detail I wanted to share because I was so excited of spotting it. Someone else probably had already but whatever, I had fun. I wonder what other details the writers hid in this episode and the rest of the series.

Timeline

How long has it been since the first episode? My assumption is like 3-4 years but I’m curious if anyone know.

Am I the only person not that big of a fan of Jackson?

i don’t know but Jackson was never my favorite I was still sad when he died but I prefer a lot more over him. Aaron is way better than him in my opinion and I liked all the other rookies that have been on the show more along with everyone except Bishop.

Percy West Should Have Been Relieved of His Duties

Nolan gets investigated for homicide for shooting a criminal with body camera footage showing the event and is placed on suspension/leave immediately .

Armstrong is allowed to continue working full time after shooting another officer who was a dirty cop (a rookie cop acting alone is incredibly unlikely and even mentioned by Harper, Chen, and Bradford.

Armstrong being allowed back without an investigation by IA and just an inquiry into the shooting put every officer involved with the investigation at extreme risk.

This doesn't even put into consideration that he definitely got away with some questionable ethical decisions previously in his career.

Then the audacity to have Harper and Nolan get LORs while he completely failed at holding Armstrong to the same standards we saw during S1.

Would love to see him replaced with a more competent person since he's not even integral to the storyline as an individual now that Jackson has been dead for multiple seasons.

Not a big fan of Elijah as a villain

Loving the show so far! Except I'm so frustrated by Wesley's conflict with Elijah haha. I don't think he's even a good or interesting villain to have this side plot stretched so much.

But everything else is so good! I miss Jackson though.

Lucy's career

Surely, every time Lucy gets 'interviewed' for the reality show - 'Real Crime' - her cover is just gone? I know that the one interview was connected to Aaron Thorsen's show , not sure if the other interviews were . And I think there were at least two - some time after she had started going undercover. Everybody knows she had to go undercover as Juicy now. Seems like an oversight. I love the way Tim denies that he looks anything like Jake - at all!

The other boy in blue

Season 7 is due out in 2025, so is the third part of James Cameron's Avatar. Hopefully a certain Na'vi returns for a cameo.

Why are episodes on the show sometimes filmed/edited that way?

Notice that the show will be filmed/edited differently sometimes.

  1. You have the default way in which every show is filmed (and 90% of times it's like that on the Rookie).

  2. Then you got the "reality tv" type of episode. An example would be the episode where Aaron Thorsen invite his old uni friends from France to stay at his place and a dead body is found. Spoiler: >!The real killer of his friend is found and it was because there was some type of drug trafficking taking place!<

  3. A bit similar to #2 but it's more like a documentary that was being filmed.

  4. The whole episode is filmed or at least seems to be filmed by their body camera the characters are carrying and scene just switch from body cam to body cam or to the camera in their cars (kinda like a dash cam).

So any specific reasons why the show is filmed/edited differently at times?

Dim not recognizing Sava(Lucy)

So I just watched the episode where Dim goes missing again, and I was wondering why Dim didn't recognize Sava(Lucy) when they first met. Anyone else thought about this?

Question from a foreign fan of The Rookie

Hello everyone, I am following The Rookie from Turkey, I am currently in season 5, episode 12, but since there is no official broadcaster in my country, there are fragmentary episodes on various sites, I would like to ask you when I should watch the series called The Rookie Feds, what is the connection with the story
