'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Everlasting' - A Bomb And A Baby

August 22nd, 2014 10:03am EDT
'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Everlasting' - A Bomb And A Bab
In the second half of the Rookie Blue season finale (here's part one), the team continues their search for a lethal suspect with a four-year-old grudge and winds up sort of back at the beginning. Ben Bass reminds us all that someone needs to give him an acting trophy at some point already, Missy Peregrym might be indestructible, and just wait until you find out all the personal problems that we're going to need until season six (which there will be!) to resolve.

Andy is uncomfortable about having to work alongside Marlo (Rachael Ancheril) in the hunt for mad bomber Ted McDonald. You know w...

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Fragments' - Blowing Up The House

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Fragments' - Blowing Up The Hou
We've come to the end of another season of Rookie Blue. It's been a season of ups and downs this year, so a strong finish is definitely in order. Boosted by the return appearance of a fantastic guest actor, "Fragments" starts an interesting enough story, although it places a tremendous amount of emphasis on a character who hasn't ever quite worked.

It's not uncommon for season finales to start well and end badly, so it's no surprise that everyone's getting ready for the Commissioner's Gala, Holly wants to get back with Gail, and Sam is offering Andy a key to his place that she doesn't want...

'Motive' Recap And Review: 'Kiss Of Death' - A Killer Read
Oh hi there, Motive. You're really doing awesome in the guest star department this season. First you bring us Laura Mennell, then here's Enuka Okuma. Wait, what do you mean this isn't a Rookie Blue crossover? Wait, what's happening to...okay, now you've gotten our attention.

Best-selling mystery author Lori Oliver - played by Enuka - is doing a book reading for a sizeable audience, who are hanging on her every word. In mid-sentence, she stumbles and thinks she's coming down with something. She's right; she's about to be dead. During the subsequent book signing, after meeting a guy who chil...

'Rookie Blue's' Enuka Okuma Guest Stars In Tonight's 'Motive'
Rookie Blue star Enuka Okuma is a featured player in tonight's Motive.

In the episode, entitled "Kiss of Death," the actress plays best-selling murder mystery author Lori Oliver, who crosses paths with detectives Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman) and Oscar Vega (Louis Ferreira).

Enuka spoke with us about the guest spot during our interview in June; you can click here for some spoilery tidbits, but the non-spoilery part is that it wasn't a huge leap for her to visit the other Canadian crime drama.

"Years ago, I did a pilot with Kristin Lehman out in Los Angeles, so we've been friends since the...

'Bachelor In Paradise' Recap: Chris And Elise Fall For Each Other, In The Creepiest Way Possible

'Bachelor In Paradise' Recap: Chris And Elise Fall For Each Othe
Here's how you know the last episode of "Bachelor in Paradise" was the greatest thing to happen in the history of people acting foolish on reality TV: after the usual "last time on 'Bachelor in Paradise'" recap, detailing the walking barrel of pyschosis that is Elise, we get a second recap, courtesy of the remaining contestants.

Because Dylan dumping Elise- who then assumed the act of being dumped was a secret code for "I love you madly, please stalk me"- was so compelling that ABC thinks the "Bachelor in Paradise" audience will gladly watch it at least three times.

They're totally right,...

Grey's Anatomy
This fall, ABC's "Shondaland Thursday" (coined after Shonda Rhimes) is sure to heat up now that Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder will all air on the same night, but the stars of all three shows kept cool this week by taking on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

The challenge, put in motion by the ALS Association, initially began as a way to create awareness for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Participants are urged to dump a bucket of ice water over their head or donate to the charity. As of Monday, Aug. 18, the ALS Association raised $15.6 million in donations.

6 Things We Wish Had Happened On TV

6 Things We Wish Had Happened On TV
As the Rolling Stones once sang, you can't always get what you want. And so it is for TV as well. For a variety of reasons - network decisions, production demands, behind the scenes developments - sometimes what happens or doesn't happen isn't what we would've wanted. Even though that might have been a good thing, even if we completely understand why, we can't help but wonder 'what if.'

This TV season has had quite a few of those moments, whether it's plot twists that broke our hearts, cancellations we wish we could reverse, or just things we would have enjoyed seeing even if they had no r...

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Moving Day' - Culture Clash
Okay, Rookie Blue. You've gone a little off track the past two weeks, but there's still a lot to love about you. You're clearly making it up to us by inviting one of Canada's best character actors to the party, and coming up with a case of the week that's one of the better ones this season. However, we still want to hit Chloe with a shovel.

15 Division has installed cop-monitoring cameras, much to everyone's amusement and later, nervousness. It's one thing to laugh at your colleagues' conversations, another to realize your every move and word is being documented for other people to scrutin...
