About Last Night…THE ROOKIE

THE ROOKIE – “Under Siege” – After one of their own is shot, the team suffers a series of close calls and realizes their division may be a target for a group of masked assailants. TUESDAY, MAY 2 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. (ABC/Raymond Liu)

Let’s talk about Tuesday night’s TV!

THE ROOKIE: Well, that had some of the most stressful sequences in the show’s history.

That opening was stressful as hell. THE ROOKIE has not been shy about killing off characters, and I feared for both Celina and Aaron. (I’m still worried about Aaron, but I’m slightly more confident he’ll survive hiatus.) There were a number of great stunt sequences throughout the episode, and I’m kind of shocked more people weren’t injured. (TO BE CLEAR…I’m happy about that. But I was going into every confrontation with so much dread.)

Also, I feel like kidnapping a baby, even if it’s only for a minute or two, dooms you to a special kind of hell? (I do not know how Nyla functioned after that, I would have wanted to take my child and changed continents.)

The problem about watching so much TV is I instantly spotted Kristian Bruun early on and went, well, he’s not here for nothing. But it was obviously the question of how/why he would come into play with this.. And we still have that answer to come—in a meaningful way, outside of his quick “we distracted the cops!!” exposition dump—whenever the show returns. And the mystery of whatever the hell he’s targeting.

Also, those masks are going to haunt my nightmares…good lord.
