Rookie Blue “Girls Night Out” Review

Nash’s first day in detective training nearly became her last in “Girls Night Out,” this week’s episode of Rookie Blue. When her boyfriend/trainer Barber didn’t show up to her first crime scene, she very nearly damaged the entire case with her lack of experience. But thanks to a last minute miracle, she managed to find the bad guys, solve the case and take down a drug ring all within the space of one shift.
