The Rookie season 5 episode 7 starts with Harper and Lopez visiting a crime scene after a shop owner was shot in his store. According to a witness, a female gang by the name of Double R killed him because he refused to pay protection money.
Meanwhile, Bailey is feeling off-centred since her engagement. Celina advises her to decorate the house to line up with their energy. Nolan is wary that the house needs a makeover, he thinks it is because Bailey is yet to move in with him. He talks it over with her and they agree she should move her things to their house so that it feels like home to both of them.
At the police station, Grey and Bradford are leading the daily morning brief when they are interrupted and served a court order. Elijah is suing Wesley, Grey and Lopez and is requesting access to see Lopez’s personnel file. Nolan offers to help as a Union Rep. We knew that Elijah’s return was bad news but we didn’t expect him to take this route to execute his vengeance.
Lopez has faith in Wesley as a lawyer and chooses to focus on their case instead. They ask Grey to give the green light for an undercover stint led by Chen. They ask Chen to infiltrate the female gang group and find out who pulled the trigger on the liquor store owner. As luck would have it, Bradford and Thorsen are already acquainted with one of the members’ families.
Early that morning they had been called to the home for a noise complaint and Thorsen related well with Tabin. Harper and Lopez ask him to convince Tabin to introduce Chen to his sister and give her an in with the gang.
The introduction doesn’t go as smoothly as Thorsen wanted and he gets anxious and tells Bradford that he is overlooking Tabin’s safety to further Chen’s career. Bradford is startled by the accusation and is quick to deny them.
Lucy is amazing while undercover and completely immerses herself in her character. She soon identifies that the killer is Tabin’s sister and they make a move to arrest her. Tabin is not happy with how things turned out and cut Thorsen off as he feels used and tricked.
Elsewhere, Nolan and Juarez are working on an unusual case where a man is shot in front of them. They immediately arrest the shooter only for Juarez to discover that the man was long dead before being shot. They believe he died from a stabbing but further investigation proved he was poisoned. The case ultimately leads to the victim’s wife who lost it when she learnt he had been lying to her.
Elijah’s request to see Lopez and Grey’s personnel file is denied but that doesn’t deter him. He tells Wesley that he will use all and every legal loophole he can to come after people he cares about. He says the only way that he will stop is if Wesley makes a public apology at a press conference.
Feeling cornered, Wesley agrees to do the press conference and apologizes to Elijah. Elijah is a cunning fox and he is getting Wesley to take accountability when he shouldn’t. He is also getting a settlement from the city and his freedom.
It was a mistake for Wesley to agree to publicly apologize to Elijah. This will destroy his career and who knows what Elijah is planning next. Wesley believes he is protecting his family but we all know Elijah won’t let this matter go. At the moment, they can’t touch him and have no proof of his shady dealings. It will take time before they can bring him to justice.
The moment Thorsen and Bradford showed up to arrest Tabin’s sister was intense. Thorsen did an amazing job de-escalating the situation but we know in real-life how most of those situations end up. Thorsen is really good at community policing and Bradford can learn a thing or two from him.
新秀第 5 季第 7 集开始于哈珀和洛佩兹在店主被枪杀后参观犯罪现场。 据目击者称，一个名叫双R的女帮派杀死了他，因为他拒绝支付保护费。 与此同时，贝利自从订婚以来就感到心不在焉。 塞琳娜建议她装饰房子，以配合他们的能量。 诺兰担心房子需要改造，他认为这是因为贝利还没有和他一起搬进来。 他和她谈了一下，他们同意她应该把她的东西搬到他们的房子里，这样他们俩都有家的感觉。 在警察局，格雷和布拉德福德正在主持每日早间简报，当他们被打断并送达法院命令时。 以利亚正在起诉韦斯利、格雷和洛佩兹，并要求查看洛佩兹的人事档案。 我们知道以利亚的回归是个坏消息，但我们没想到他会走这条路来执行他的复仇。 洛佩兹对卫斯理作为律师有信心，并选择专注于他们的案件。 他们要求格雷为陈领导的卧底开绿灯。 他们要求陈潜入女帮派团体，找出是谁对酒类商店老板扣动了扳机。 幸运的是，布拉德福德和索尔森已经认识了其中一个成员的家庭。
那天清晨，他们被叫到家里进行噪音投诉，索尔森与塔宾关系很好。 哈珀和洛佩兹要求他说服塔宾将陈介绍给他的妹妹，并让她加入帮派。 介绍并没有像索尔森想要的那样顺利，他很着急，告诉布拉德福德他正在忽视塔宾的安全，以进一步发展陈的职业生涯。 布拉德福德对这一指控感到震惊，并迅速否认了这些指控。 露西在卧底时非常出色，完全沉浸在自己的角色中。 她很快发现凶手是塔宾的妹妹，他们采取行动逮捕她。 塔宾对事情的发展不满意，并切断了索尔森，因为他觉得自己被利用和欺骗了。 在其他地方，诺兰和华雷斯正在处理一个不寻常的案件，一名男子在他们面前被枪杀。 他们立即逮捕了射手，只是为了让华雷斯发现这名男子在被枪杀之前早已死亡。 他们认为他死于刺伤，但进一步调查证明他中毒了。 案件最终导致受害者的妻子在得知他一直在对她撒谎时失去了它。
以利亚要求查看洛佩兹和格雷的人事档案的请求被拒绝，但这并没有阻止他。 他告诉卫斯理，他会利用一切法律漏洞来追捕他关心的人。 他说，他停下来的唯一方法是韦斯利在新闻发布会上公开道歉。 感到走投无路的卫斯理同意参加新闻发布会，并向以利亚道歉。 以利亚是一只狡猾的狐狸，他正在让卫斯理在他不应该承担责任的时候承担责任。 他也从城市和他的自由中得到了解决。
卫斯理同意公开向以利亚道歉是一个错误。 这将摧毁他的职业生涯，谁知道以利亚接下来的计划。 卫斯理相信他是在保护他的家人，但我们都知道以利亚不会放过这件事。 目前，他们不能碰他，也没有证据证明他的黑幕交易。 他们需要时间才能将他绳之以法。 索尔森和布拉德福德出现逮捕塔宾妹妹的那一刻非常激烈。 索尔森在缓和局势方面做得非常出色，但我们在现实生活中知道大多数情况是如何结束的。 索尔森非常擅长社区警务，布拉德福德可以从他身上学到一两件事。
