Rookie Blue Recap: Best Man

“Rookie Blue” Season 6 Episode 7 “Best Man” aired on Global at 10:00 p.m. on June 24, 2015, on Global. In this episode, Officer Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym), Detective Sam Swarek (Ben Bass), Detective Traci Nash (Enuka Okuma) and Officer Dov Epstein (Gregory Smith) worked against time to clear Staff Sergeant Oliver Shaw’s (Matt Gordon) name from being the one who had bombed the 15th Division, while the rest of the division raced against time to find a missing boy. Read on to learn more about this episode.

The episode began with an engagement party for Officer Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym) and Detective Sam Swarek (Ben Bass). However, in the middle of the party, Andy pulled Detective Traci Nash (Enuka Okuma) aside as she had lost the engagement ring. The two then decided to tell Sam that she was allergic to it in order to bide some time so that they could look for it. Meanwhile, while the two ladies talked, Sam asked his best friend, Staff Sergeant Oliver Shaw (Matt Gordon) to be his best man.


The next morning, Noelle Williams (Melanie Nicholls-King) was confronted by Commissioner Alonso Santana (Richard Chevolleau). He asked for a report by the end of the day. Noelle then told Sam that they had a problem. Officer Juliet Ward (Erin Karpluk) had just implicated Oliver to be the person who had bombed the precinct. Andy then brought in Officer Dov Epstein (Gregory Smith) into the loop. He had been part of the investigation into the bombing at Intelligence. However, their only lead was Chris Klem. He is an explosives supplier who supplied explosives to the police, and he and his daughter Ava had been missing already for one month. Andy then told him to keep on looking at their records to see if anything would pop up.

They then went over to Kitchener where the Klems lived. On the way, Sam noticed that Andy wasn’t wearing her ring, but before she could say anything, Detective Norman, the detective in charge of the Klem’s case, arrived. After looking over the place, and after talking to the Klem’s nosy neighbor. He told them that the detective outside had been involved in an altercation with Chris Klem. It was after Ava had been picked up on a drug charge even though she had nothing on her. The two realized that this detective didn’t really look that hard for the Klems. Andy then instructed Dov to bring Traci into the loop as she could get him access to other information and records that might help them in the search for the missing family.

On the way back to the division, the two reflected how things didn’t look so great for Oliver. It was especially as his daughter’s drug charge was no longer in the system, making him the perfect scapegoat. Sam then surprised Andy with a gift- the ring which was now on a big keychain.

Meanwhile, at the 15th division, the entire force raced against time to find a missing boy named Evan Malone. As they talked to several witnesses, they brought in Reese Gray for questioning after discovering that he was a registered sex offender, but found nothing in his house. It automatically cancelled out Oliver’s request for an Amber Alert, which was being worked on, with no guaranteed success, as the boy had an autism spectrum disorder.

Afterwards, Officer Nick Collins (Peter Mooney) discovered that another witness had seen  the boy had picked up an old bar sign. It coincided with Reese’s story of having picked up an old headboard, which meant that there had been a truck in that area that morning.

After tracking down the truck company-Junk Mates, Oliver discovered a fantasy book about a boy who climbs into a wardrobe. It transports him to different new lands, and rescued and revived him after Evan was found passed out inside an old wardrobe.

Meanwhile, thanks to Dov, who tracked down Ava to a nearby university by playing World of Warcraft with her, they managed to find Chris and his daughter. They were then told that a police officer named Oliver Shaw had picked up the explosives from him.

Back in Oliver’s office, as he got ready to leave to play the drums for his daughter, Izzy’s (Chloe Rose) band, Sam, and Andy broke to him the bad news. Oliver then tried to get them to give in his badge, but they refused to do so, and an overwhelmed Oliver left with his daughter.

As Traci drove the Klems to a safe house, Chris asked why Oliver Shaw was calling her, as he claimed that he had just recognized who he had dealt with thanks to her caller ID. However, Detective Steve Peck (Adam MacDonald) was the one who had been calling her.


Back at the division, Traci lied as to where she had been and the two left for dinner.
