Rookie Blue - Best Man

With the rest of the department dealing with a missing Autistic child that leaves the newly-engaged Andy (Missy Peregrym) and Sam (Ben Bass) until the end of the day to prove Oliver's (Matt Gordon) innocence before Juliet's report official marks him as the chief suspect in the bombing of the precinct. Enlisting the help of both Epstein (Gregory Smith) and Traci (Enuka Okuma), the pair track down the missing witness who disappeared with his daughter after he sold the explosives. Although the result of their investigation will make Oliver look only more guilty, Traci will make a discovery which will shake her world and force her to make some hard decisions in the very near future.

The series has hinted in recent weeks just what kind of cop Steve Peck (Adam MacDonald) is, and his actions over the past two weeks confirm it in both in his willingness to let an innocent man hang for a crime he didn't commit last week and the reveal that he has framed Oliver for the moves he made that destroyed evidence inside 15 Division. All things considered, Oliver takes the news that he's been framed fairly well, and I'll admit I'm disappointed we don't get to see him play in his daughter's band, although his decision to resign is unlikely to stop the department from pressing charges against their chief suspect. It appears Traci's next decision will impact who goes down for the crime: her friend or her lover?
