Rookie Blue - Breaking Up the Band

In the final episode before the season finale, "Breaking Up the Band" introduces the idea of major shake-ups with 15 Division should Rookie Blue get renewed for another season. It seems the corruption within the department has the higher-ups discussing city-wide transfers which could mean several new faces if the show does indeed get renewed (a possibility the show's dismal ratings are making less possible). Andy's (Missy Peregrym) reaction to Sam's (Ben Bass) new fatherhood is one of the major storylines covered in the episode as "Breaking Up the Band" also teases a break-up between the pair. Cooler heads prevail and it looks like, renewed or cancelled, fans of the show will indeed get to see a wedding before the season comes to a close.

The latest episode also continues to deal with the arrest of Steve Peck (Adam MacDonald) as Gail (Charlotte Sullivan) is pressured to lie under oath to keep her brother out of jail. That mixed with the news that she may be loosing her chance to adopt forces the officer to break down as the episode comes to a close and leaving the show with several options about where to take the character going forward. The only other storyline involves Andy, Sam, and Epstein (Gregory Smith) working a local music festival where one man's need for revenge threatens not only the lives of several young women but Chloe (Priscilla Faia) as well, but given the larger impacts of the other ongoing stories its used mostly as filler.
