Episode 4 Recap
Last time on The Rookie season 4, we saw Officer Nolan and Officer Chen working together. Their case entails a missing person who has some international ties. These international ties also put everyone in the precinct in danger. Chen and Nolan start their investigations and do a fair bit of digging before the FBI’s arrival. They then also help the FBI by giving out all information they’ve dug up so far. Due to their tip-off, they become a part of the FBI investigations. At the center of their investigation is one woman — Katerina Antonov. The Russians are hunting this woman down for unknown reasons. We later learn why the woman was on the run.
Katerina has been looking for revenge for her brother who died due to a drone strike. However, her revenge is incongruent with Russia’s interests, and that’s why Russians want her gone. At the climactic moments of episode 4, we see Nolan confront Katerina. Nolan gets his hand on a thumb drive that contains the names of those behind the drone strike. Katerina, obviously wanting that drive, kidnaps Nolan’s girlfriend. However, Nolan eventually manages to save his girlfriend from Katerina, who is arrested by the FBI. Meanwhile, Harper also makes a breakthrough in the serial killer case. With the assistance of a new rookie, Harper track down the serial killer to an abandoned building. Harper eventually manages to free the victim from the killer’s clutches as well. However, the serial killer gets away.
