Everything you need to know about The Rookie
The series “The Rookie” is based on a real-life LAPD officer named William Norcross. He had moved to Los Angeles in 2015 and joined the police department in his mid-40s. However, the story of the series revolves around a fictional character of John Nolan, who is a 45-year old divorced man from Pennslyvania. He was a former owner of the construction company and a father of a son in college. He had accidentally helped some police officers in a bank robbery and after that, he pursues a career as a police officer in the LAPD after moving to Los Angeles. Nolan goes on to graduate as the oldest rookie from the academy and joins the force.
So, as the show progresses, John slowly learns that he must work through the dangerous, and unforeseeable nature of his job if he wants to establish himself in this new career. The main cast of the show includes Nathan Fillion as John Nolan; Alyssa Diaz as Angela Lopez; Titus Makin Jr. as Jackson West; Mercedes Mason as Zoe Andersen; Melissa O’Neil as Lucy Chen; Afton Williamson as Talia Bishop; Eric Winter as Tim Bradford; Mekia Cox as Nyla Harper; Richard T. Jones as Wade Grey; and Shawn Ashmore as Wesley Evers. Apart from this, Michele Groco is the producer of the show whereas Michelle Bernard, Liz Friedlander, Mark Gordon, Georg Stanford Brown, and Sylvain are the directors/executive producers of the series.
A quick recap of the series till now
In the previous episode i.e. Episode 6 of Season 3, we saw that Officer Nolan decides to return to school in order to become a training officer. However, his decision is proving to be quite difficult than he had expected. Nolan didn’t tell his fellow students that he is an officer. Consequently, when one of the students sees him in his uniform, the entire class lashes out at him. They feel he was spying on them as an undercover agent. But, he had only kept his identity as a secret since his fellow officers had told him to do so. They had warned him that it is better to be silent about being a cop in social situations. On the other hand, Officer Chen has started thinking about working as an undercover cop. After spying on a seminar by Officer Harper on women going undercover, Chen is quite convinced that she should consider it as an opportunity.
What to expect from Season 3 Episode 7?
Episode 7 of Season 3 of “The Rookie” is titled “True Crime.” The plot of this episode is going to be quite similar to the name of the episode. A true crime is going to be bestowed in front of us. The officers will lay out their feelings about the case in front of a camera. Nolan had never thought before in his career that anything like this could ever happen. The day had started out just like any other casual day. However, it went on to become one of the most mysterious and spine-chilling days he had ever come across. The case is about a former child actor whose adult life has helped him build a cult. So, it will be interesting to see how the LAPD handles this. The trailer of the episode is already out and you can watch it below.
