In this episode, in light of everything that happened, the 15th Division got reshuffled. Officer Gail Peck (Charlotte Sullivan) faced the daunting decision of what to say when she testified in court that day in Detective Steve Peck’s (Adam MacDonald) trial, and missed an important meeting with her case worker. Officer Dov Epstein (Gregory Smith) and Officer Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym) worked a case in which several teenage girls had been drugged during a music festiva. Andy also struggled with her feelings about Detective Sam Swarek’s (Ben Bass) new priorities, and Officer Nick Collins (Peter Mooney) struggled with his own feelings for Officer Juliet Ward (Erin Karpluk). Read on to learn more about this episode.

The episode began with Officer Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym) returning home only to find Marlo Cruz (Rachael Ancheril) in her bed. She  got surprised after discovering that Detective Sam Swarek (Ben Bass), who had been out walking the baby, had forgotten about their plans for the night. Annoyed, Andy headed over to the bar. She met Officer Juliet Ward (Erin Karpluk), who offered her a five-month undercover job in Vancouver, where she was returning to the following night.

The next morning, Officer Chris Diaz (Travis Milne) dropped of Officer Gail Peck (Charlotte Sullivan) at the courthouse, where her brother’s trial was going to be held. After comforting her, Gail’s father, Inspector Bill Peck (Bill MacDonald)  came in. He asked her to lie on the stand in order to prevent Detective Steve Peck (Adam MacDonald) from going to jail.

At the precinct, Officer Duncan Moore ( Matthew Owen Murray) was eager to prove that he wasn’t like his corrupt stepfather.

Inspector Jarvis (Oliver Becker) then informed the 15th Division that everyone was going to get restructured and reshuffled in light of the corruption case that had just hit them. Officer Oliver Shaw (Matt Gordon) then gave them their assignments for the day. Oliver and Officer Nick Collins (Peter Mooney) would work at booking; Duncan was going to man the front desk, Chris and Officer Chloe Price (Priscilla Faia) were assigned to patrol duty; and Officer Dov Epstein (Gregory Smith) and Andy were to watch out for scalpers at a local ongoing music festival.

Before leaving, Andy confronted Sam about what had happened the night before. She told him that she was thinking about taking Juliet’s offer, as she felt that his priority was his new “family.” This caused Sam to vent out his frustrations on the vending machine later that day.

Juliet and Nick then ran into each other at the precinct but didn’t reconcile with each other.

At the music festival, Dov and Andy ran into a young man, named Bryce Forbes (Alexander de Jordy), who was escorting his drunk girlfriend, Tammy (Chelsey Marie), home. After offering to give them a ride home, they called for an ambulance. Tammy had suddenly collapsed and was unconscious. After discovering that around four other girls at the backstage of the music festival looked like they had been drugged. After Dov called from the hospital to report that someone had slipped Tammy ecstasy and a roofie, Andy called in Sam to help handle the case.

At the courthouse, Gail rebuffed all Juliet’s attempts to be friendly with her. She called her case worker, Loreli, as she had just missed her second appointment in a row. She then met her case worker at the courthouse. She was told that there was another family interested in adopting Sophie (Shecinah Mpumlwana), but allowed Gail to get through the day first.

Back at the music festival, Chris discovered that all that the girls had in common were VIP backstage passes. It made the festival promoter, Peyton McNeilly (Randal Edwards)  feel that this was connected to an incident that happened two years ago on the band’s, The Stone Brothers, tour bus. However, they discovered that the brothers were clean. Thanks to Duncan, Sam and Detective Traci Nash (Enuka Okuma) realized that Peyton had framed the band as his younger sister had been involved in that incident two years ago.

This information was relayed to Dov and to Chloe, who was in the truck with Peyton. However, as Bryce had just learned that Tammy had died because of Peyton, he set Peyton’s trailer on fire. Thankfully, Chris managed to put it out, and Dov revived Chloe just in time.

After Bryce got processed at the division, Oliver encouraged Nick to go after Juliet, which he did. The two reconciled and Nick promised that they would work it out together.

Meanwhile, Gail was interrupted in giving her testimony. Steve confessed and took a plea deal in which he would testify against Commissioner Santana. Gail then met Loreli at the bar, after Chris picked her up and broke down in front of her.

Later that night, after Marlo made Andy realize that she was trying to give Sam an “out,” which he didn’t want. The two then reconciled after Andy revealed that she had just missed him. They then agreed to get married sooner than planned, and then Sam surprised Andy with a dog of their own.

And that was all for the recap of “Rookie Blue” Season 6 Episode 10 “Breaking Up the Band.” For more news, updates and recaps on “Rookie Blue” and other television shows, keep on following Movie News Guide (MNG).
