Stern mothers, drunken fathers and superheroes were the focus of the eleventh episode of ROOKIE BLUE, To Serve or Protect. As the first season draws to a close, the episodes have gotten stronger and stonger and this week was one of Rookie Blueâs finest.
Sure, there was sentimental sap galore, but it was handled well, reminiscent of the olden days when Greyâs Anatomy wasnât one big pseudo-philosophy lesson. Andyâs father finds himself suspected of murdering a serial rapist/torturer/killer who was released from prison a fortnight previously and was shot dead six times before he could attack another girl. Andyâs father, who screwed up the case years ago because of his alcoholism, cannot provide an alibi for his defence as he was on a bender the night the killer was killed. But the evidence against him: his vendetta against the scumbag, the fact that he tailed the guy since his release from prison, the bullets missing from his recently fired pistol, his amnesia and his satisfaction at the killerâs demise all points to his guilt. Eventually the murdererâs wife confesses to killing him (how about a divorce?) and Andyâs father is saved from utter disgrace.
